never, lol this is my dd. I want to start working on an ultra 4 buggy next, but have to save alot....

this is probably about done for me. to get coilover and new axles itd have to be down for quite awhile and id have to redo tons... Honestly i dont have a need for them. I wouldnt even be worried on 37s. Id be much better suited to just do a buggy than a jeep.

As everything if i were to redo it i would have done axles and stuff differently, but its kind of late. Id love to have done say a 14b front and rear with like 42s but its not gonna happen. Either way they would have been junkyard axles.

I was talking about the ones I took. Should have gotten some video. If I upload through a USB 3.0 it takes 1080p!

Painted the rear track bar bracket, but will probably be awhile to install it. Still need to drill it out and make the rear track bar.. Waiting on rod ends...
