Its not the destination, its the journey to get there.

Yeah, it probably would. Im probably going to do it before too long. Quick ? anybody on here replaced there brake lines with extended ones and know the procedure? Ive never really bled brake lines and would like a write up on it but cant seem to find one.

1 - good looking jeep!

2 - bleeing the brakes is easy - the best way to do it is locate the bleeder valve on the back of each caliper. Have a friend pump the brakes (with the key off) and hold the pedal down. while he's doing that, crack the valve. repeat until you get a steady stream (which means all the air is out of the line). Then do the same to the remaining 3 calipers. hope that helps!

What kind of paint did you use on your wheels? My **** Cepeks started pitting and I don't like the way they look.

Well, I finally pulled the plug on painting the grill black. Im doing it now so here are some pics in process... The last one is to show texture. I used two cans of duplicolor bed liner and 2 clear coats of duplicolor also.
