Oh and it prolly took 4-6 hours all together for me to install this lift with one person helping. I did over the course of 2 weeks not all at the same time... That being said, I have never done anything anywhere close to that big before so if you know what your doing and have the right tools it will probably be quicker... If you have any questions RC is great about answering them for you while your workin too... I called them a few times.

Lookin good Jon I really like the black grill on a white jeep.

I'm going to suggest your next mod to be replacing that giant hunk of plastic and stuff that Jeep calls a bumper

Lol, Im actually looking into that and I like the Poison spyder bumper with the comp hoop for 417... That being said, Im still looking into cutting the stock bumper and I need rear corners before anything due to my crushed tail light/ passenger side corner.

You need to get some sliders on there, man. That's the only thing that's missing at this point... It looks kinda weird with nothing under the bottom door panels.

Yeah, I agree with you... I just dont really do wheeling right now where they are necessary and those things arent cheap... Once I get my corners on I thin that will be my next set of armor.

I'm liking the black grille more and more every time I look at your jeep. I know you posted it earlier, but what paint did you use and where'd you get it?

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

And I used Duplicolor bed liner and Duplicolor clear coat... Used 2 cans of the liner and about 3 very light coats of the clear coat... Bought it at advance, wal mart does not carry it. I would definitely not get the rustoleum bed liner either, i think its a tad bit cheaper but I used it on my hinges and its no good!

Looks nice but I'd scrap the Rough Country decals unless they're paying you.
