Looking for gears for the 60 and 14b. (4:88's) Need to order knuckles, tabs, and steering arms soon. As well as ORI's and coilovers. Time to let this build begin!

Are you going to shave the 14B?

I have the ballistic shave kit on mine. If I did it over again I probably would have just cut the lip off and called it a day. I'm kind of worried about peeling the plate off. I know it has a good weld but you never know what may happen.

Struts and coilovers? Are you running one front, the other back?

I bought my Jeep with no jack or spare. I've been putting off picking up a hi-lift for too long now. That's my biggest concern as of right now, is mounting location. Ideally I'd go behind the rear-most rollbars, but that's where the dogs mount and dismount from. What did that neoprene bag run you? Sounds fancy!

I have my hi-lift right behind my rear seat (I have a little extra space due to having an LJ). I just take mine on/off whenever I have the dogs in the jeep.

I like having it inside because it keeps out of the elements.

I share your sentiment. But here in delicious Florida, my top lives in the garage for roughly 285 days outta the year. So it's gonna get beat up by the rain & salt air regardless. A bag sounds like my best bet right now.
