Have a few finishing touches to do to make it work properly. The front control arms need to be shortened a hair so the trac bar will clear the front diff. Then it is off to the alignment shop.
Of course tomorrow it is time to go wheeling...

I think the polished wheel with red ring set it off great

Ill box them up and send them to you. I have about 5 sets of shocks and springs off of a Rubicon, hell extra control arms too.

Ill get you a weight and you just pay for shipping.

I ordered a flame red Rubicon 4 door back in November. It came in about 7 weeks ago. Thats how long it was..

Yep, darn it, they sure do! Now I've got to go out and get some red bead lock rings, they look great! Nice job, all the way around!
