Why didnt you just do the lift yourself?

If it rolls, floats, flies or shoots, runs on gasoline or gunpowder, goes fast or shoots a big bullet and makes lots of noise, thus producing torque and recoil its cool.

I went wheeling for the first time in 2009. I brought my friend who has a 90 XJ with 33x10.5 BFG AT with only 35% tread. It was his first time off-road and his tires were his older bros old tires. There is still a lot of snow so I had to pull him out a lot. I never got stuck though. STTs owned house! I dropped them to 20 psi and that seemed to work well, good bulge but not real low on air either.

Wow what an evening that was. 3/4 of a mile total in about 3 hours. Thank god I brought a shovel!!!

Airing down in snow with the proper tires helps you stay on top of the snow instead of sinking in.

I removed the carpet out of the back half of my jeep and sprayed bed liner now im looking for some diamond plate replacements for all the plastic in the back. My next 4 day weekend will see the rest of the carpet removed. Also i got mossy oak seat covers and steering wheel covers.

Next weekend the 6.5" RC lift, SYE, tires and wheels go on. Unless they make me work

Got gas and washed her, I am getting 14.5 mpg, but that was ALL city driving, so of course it sucked.

I trimmed my front bumper.

I hated that little "wing" thing I guess it was called.

I also fixed my fender.

I actually was about to do it with my friend but my parents offered to pay for the install since they didnt think it was safe if my friend and I did it since we had never done a lift before. At first I was arguing with them, but then I realized they were offering to pay for a professional jeep customizing shop to install, and I said what the heck lol. Saves me time, and having to deal with the upper rear shock bolts

Finally got my IRO double shear track bar and hd steering stabalizer in, kinda a pain with the track bar since it works for 3"-8" lift . But in the long run it made its way in, no more shimmy when I have to hit the brakes hard. Also sprayed my rear wheel wells with 3m bedliner, looks much better. Sunday I get my new tires on, will post pics when done.
