Got some more frame stiffening done tonight. And got the upper rear links mocked up.

No problem ej!
Yeah, it's a little tedious but not horribly so.
I did mine a couple years ago when I picked up a full set of privacy glass at the JY for $30
Well worth the time spent removing both sets of glass!
Dealing with the inner trim panels on the rear quarter glass is the hardest part of the project.

On the lighter side of the news...
I finally got the old gal into my friend's garage and mounted up my Mud Claws tonight!
Had to give 3 out of 4 a half turn on the rim(normal for flotation sized tires) after running them on the balancer to get the required balance weight down.
One tire wanted 2.75oz inside and 5.75oz on the outside.
After a half turn it wanted 1.5oz inside and 2oz outside.
Good thing I'm also a former tire man too. LOL
Weezy loves her new sneakers and rides smooth as silk!!
Just need to break out the hot water to scrub the blue coating off the white letters.

Ordered new bulbs for my low beams now that they are adjusted. I miss them being aimed too high. It was like driving with my hi beams on constantly. Ordered 85w in yellow and blue. Have a set of 100w yellow sitting around as well. Im not sure which color to run. The white/blue are a lot better on dry pavement. But the yellow help a lot when its wet, snowy, and foggy.. it is going into summer though..

The white/blue will look brighter, but if you drive with each set for a bit and pay attention to how well you can see things (ignoring how bright the lights look against pavement), there likely won't be a big difference in good weather (and the glare / reflections will be easier on the eyes when it rains, etc. with the yellow or white compared to a blue bulb).

Assuming we're talking halogens, the blue bulb will also have the least light output per watt, followed by yellow, and then white with the most (due to how the light is filtered to get the color).

Ordered some front and rear frame stiffeners to tie into my TNT stiffeners I already had. Gotta beef this thing up.

I have a set of regular h3 100w.

I ordered a set of white 4200k i believe. Then the "yellow" is around 3000k

100w 4200k likely doesn't have much, if any color filtering going on (halogens naturally get less yellow and higher color temp as you increase wattage), so that should be about on par with any standard 100w of unknown color temp (100w is usually up around 4000k color temp). The yellow filtered bulbs only lose a little output, so how your eyes handle the glare in rain, etc. will determine which lets you see better.

Made big tires "fit" on a small lift. and barely fit. I'll need to lift a little more to fit better. I'm at 3.5" now.

95 ZJ - New build coming.
3.5 RE Lift with IRO Long Arms.

DBMetalWorx

His website was down when I tried contacting him on there. But he's on eBay under his company name. They only list the front stiffeners and then the full kit. But if you contact him he'll package the front and rear as a kit. I got it for $235 shipped.

That pic isn't mine BTW. That's one of his. I just ordered mine today.
