Got it done in about 3-4 hours. Not all that hard, everything came out fine and went in good. Though I didn't have to undo the brake lines, and the axle rested on the ground while I installed the shocks. I will have before and after pics up tomorrow when theres light out. But approx. 2" increase!

What did I do to the Jeep today? Not a damn thing. And thanks to the $4k tax bill I figured out I owe, that won't be changing for a while...

Did finally get around to washing it though. Absolutely filthy...

That surprises me. Perhaps the suspension just doesn't travel/bump that direction, but the proximity to my cooper STTs was scary
