looks pretty good, maybe put on a hinge that will bring it flat down

like on pick ups.

doubles as work bench too!

I like the exposed hinges. It's one of the things that makes a jeep a jeep.

Doesn't help. You'll just spend more on upgrades. Mine has been paid off for years, and I'm spending more on upgrades lately than I did on the payments.

Rough Country Suspension lift and wheels and tires 04 LJ, HT

Installed my rough country 2.5 lift with 2.2 shocks and 2.2 steering stabilizer last night. Went really good, took right at 2 hours all the way around. Just followed the instructions and they were right on. I did not even have to use a spring compressor, just a couple of pry bars. I mesured the front and rear bumper height before and after, and I had a 2.75 lift in the front and rear. I am sure this will settle down after driving a little while, but it looks real good. It did move the rear axle over to the right, right at a half inch, after driving it a little bit and remeasuring it is about 7/16 of an inch. I would say it rides as good as the stock setup, maybe a little smoother. I also put on Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radials, 31-10.50 R15, with the Mickey Thompson Aluminum Alloy Classic II 15X8, with a 3.5 backspacing. These tires do not even howl going down the road, and rides really good. No rubbing or binding, no squeaks or pops! For 300 bucks and wheels and tires, it really makes a difference.

Last night I installed new mirrors because mine were rotting away and one was a cheap knock off one, so I bought the 03+ style mirrors and so far they work good. Also I upgraded my lights to the Delta quad-bar headlights and they were a little bit of a pain in the butt because the screw holes don't line up perfect, but those were also a big improvement.

Took off the milk jugs and gave it a well deserved power washing.

today i installed my new skid row long arm engine skid and rustys radiatior skid. i ended up modifying the skid row to sit closer to the oil pan, and had to file a little bit of plastic off my radiator to get the skid to fit. everything went pretty smoothly though, gonna test 'em on the trails tomorrow. i picked up a heavy duty tie rod yesterday, its a stock tj tie rod split down the middle, filled with solid rod, rewelded, and then sleeved with .188 dom tubing. its beefy as ****. i didnt get a chance to install it today but that is in the works too.

Broke a tire bead to remove tree bark that was causing an annoying leak. Sawzzall'd the front bumper ends to 1 inch past the driving lights. Easy outed a broken zirk fitting and replaced w/ new.
