Ran out and snapped a quick photo for you so sorry about the flash. Sadly couldn't find my tape measure so I used a damn ruler but it's measuring approximately 2.5 inches of clearance. I'll be glad to finally see you on the trails also!

Thanks man! Should be an extremely busy weekend down there and sometimes that creates more downtime than trail time but I'm still looking forward to it!

Got my Engo 9k synthetic hooked up and it's operable, sorry but I tossed the cover on because it started to drizzle and snapped a quick picture and then headed out to the off-road park for topless day!




RCV Performance came out and rode co-pilot and after they setup a display table and cooked a ton of food for us! Very nice guys:






I will have a ton more pictures/videos for you guys in the next couple days. Got some awesome shots but here's a teaser shot for now:

Took a nice hit to my new Synergy tie rod this weekend:


Didn't bend the tie rod but it bent my drag link and threw my steering wheel off:


Synergy drag link, Safari straps, and Old Man Emu steering stabilizer and relocation bracket all on the way. Stay tuned for my "Go Topless Day" pictures and more aftermarket crap to empty my pockets

Haha my stock drag link looks like that too. Glad to see the tie rod held up!
I have synergy ball joints, tie rod, track bar, sector shaft/track bar brace installed and the drag link it sitting at home waiting for my return. Can't wait to get the last of the stock junk off of the front.

Sorry I missed you at badlands, I didn't realize you were wheeling with the rich kids.

If you learned something new today, you had a good day.

So if you've been following along you saw that I bent my drag link and had a crushed steering stabilizer. Today I got my new Synergy drag link and this is just a beefy as the tie rod.

Installed:



Also picked up an OME Steering Stabilizer and relocation bracket from Metalcloak because I had a $100 gift card so it cost me more in shipping than it did for the product.

Here's a picture of what my old one looked like:



Old Man Emu Steering Stabilizer (HATE THE YELLOW) :



Painted the damn thing black, cut the stupid boot off because they just hold water and moisture anyway, mounted the relocation bracket so it is now up and out of the way and installed:



Yes I know I promised "Go Topless Day" pictures and I will get them posted sometime this weekend. Also I will install the Safari Straps soon and give you more pictures!

Lots of poser shots and there are many more photos but I grabbed a couple, enjoy!


Camp:



















Kraig getting some use out of the straps:



Aftermath of me hitting a mud hole (6+ hours of cleaning when I got home):









LandOVER (stopped and helped winch him over - I guess a 12 year old girl was driving his rig):

Just read your whole thread, awesome build. I'm inspired, looks like plans for my new JK are going to be more than I first imagined.

Thanks a lot man I appreciate that and I'm glad it's inspired you! I'm also happy you left a comment like requested all the way on page 1 because its nice to hear that it's helped or at least given someone the confidence to do something out of their realm like it was for me when I first started.

How are you liking the OME ss ? I'm looking to replace my Bilstein for one that doesn't push the the wheels to the left , or doesn't leak like every Teraflex unit I've bought.
