I think I have a set, but will let you know!!

Another awesome build. Maybe your next one could be Commando Green, wink, wink, nudge, nudge?

I have been following your build as well, nice looking Jeep.
You said you got 1 3/4" of lift with the 18/60 springs? And do you recall what spring #s were on the Jeep originally? I believe my Rubi has 12s in the front, never looked at the back yet. Anyways, I'm impressed with your build. Looks great!

Not really lift as much as bringing my front end up to right height after the winch and bumper install.
I had 14's in the front if m not mistaken. And thanks!!!

Ok so I put the interior back together after installing the roll cage. The plastic surrounding the windshield requires some cutting. And the roll bar padding has to be cut and tucked. The new sound bar saved a lot of time!!

Also added the Fab Fours rock sliders. The nutsert toll I bought was a life saver! If you ever used the tool that most manufacturers give to instal the anchors then you know that they are a pita! Sliders are solid!!

Had to do extensive modding to fit the centered Warn Zeon. Doesnt play well with most standard plates due to its centered spool. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/m...plate-1456147/
