The lift is one of the "money well spent" excellent quality, high steer drag link, track bar relocators, all control arms adjust while fitted "piece of cake", dual rating coils waaaw....and Fox shocks I simply love it.

Furthermore, the looks is awesome.

I have opened the boxes to fit the parts in the back of the Jeep and was happy with my new gadgets but am so concerned about the additional weight and impact on the performance on the sand dunes.

Money errrrrrrrrrrrr ahhhhhh welllllll wife is not aware of the total hehehehehehe including installation I assume the total will touch 6500-7000$ ayyyyyyy that hurts the wallet indeed.

Independence Lake Trail 8/30/09

Hit the trail - Independence Lake Trail, Tahoe National Forest, Truckee, CA.

One Hour and 20 minute drive from home, everthing going fine....




Came to a point on the trail that might have been our trail/matbe ATV? - Went for it...




Got my pinstriping, was not thrilled, but I DID IT.






After wash......







Alls well that ends well, it buffs out!

The doors are great. They all fit in the cargo area under the deck cover with room to spare. This allows me to bring the doors everywhere without them being on.
now some of the negative
they leak, I took my carpets out to solve that problam
also the latches can be a little tricky
If you spend enough time adjusting them I think you can minimize all the problams

How do you do that to the hinges? Obviously you paint the hinges w/the bed liner, but how do you avoid getting the hinge pin and mount gummed up? Just tape?

How bad is the leak, are we talking a trickle or a flood?

first I took all of the hinges off...the hinge from the door and the receiver from the door jam. Then I sanded everything down to bare metal before applying the spray on bed liner. I actually just sprayed the hinge pin as well, though I could have easily taped it off. I just preferred to spray it since I leave the botton hinge nuts off and figured the bed liner would protect the pin from rusting. It "gummed" them up a bit, but easily wore off when I inserted the pin into the receiver, before it was 100% cured. Then I just applied some grease and that was it. Doors come off just as easy as they did before.....
