|'92 vegas YJ||That looks perfect. I really wish I had the funds to pay someone to finish mine. It seems that your turn around time was very quick. I'll be lucky to wheel mine the beginning of next year.|

TONS, ORI, RC, LUMI LINKS, BLINGY BLING BLING.
And it rolls! Man I had suck a blast with this thing at Set Them Free Off Road 2016. It is a monster. I hammered it a few times with everything the 4.0 had just because I knew I could. The only weak link I found is me. I need to figure out how to drive this thing again. I do not know where any of my tires are now, the gearing isn't as deep and the height is a lot different.
Here are some specs of the new build:
109" Wheel base
Shock travel front: 6 up / 8 down
Shock travel rear: 7 up / 7 down
Forked at 47.5" in front / 48.5" in rear
CTI Trailer score: 1080 (was 1000 with last set-up
Now for some action shots!

|98TJcomeonuh||Nice to see progress being made on this again, one of my favorite builds, always check for updates. What shop is doing the work? And as for having someone else doing the work, with life, work, and family I can totally understand having someone else do the heavy lifting.|

I had to quit my own build. I slowly realized I simply do not have time to get this thing built on my own. I needed to call in the reinforcements. So loaded her up on a trailer with a third of the frame gone and no legs (which was quite the task), and flopped over a good sized pile of money to get the suspension all wrapped up. It was a hard decision to make as I really wanted to do it myself but it would have been sitting on a lift for another 5 years if I just didn't give in.
So far the progress is looking good. Back-half and rear bumper are done as well as the corners cut to fit those massive trep wrapped racelines in there. Here is a mock-up pic as well:

Made some pretty good progress over last weekend. Finished up that motor mount lift, put on a new UCF aluminum 3/8" skid, stubified my front bumper, and cut the frame for the Artec back half kit. Was getting pretty good with the plasma torch at the end of the day.
Have a wiring question. That locker pump I just removed was connected in a whole lot of ways. How much of that wiring can I get rid of and will it effect anything else?
Here are some pics for ya. The axles that are just about finished up. Next is finish assembly on the axles then start putting it all together!

Rokmen rear flush mount bumper with frame tie-ins-$300
