Bunch of pics of bunch of new mods

Well it's been in the shop under heavy wrenching for the last few weeks.
Big thanks to Phil from Trailduty for supplying pretty much all of the goodies!
Here's the overhaul list....
Rockhard interior full sportcage & pads
Rockhard rear harness bar
Rockhard rear bumper/carrier
Rugged Ridge front stubby with stinger
Woods Rubitubes
AEV snorkel
Hypertech Progammer
Teraflex highsteer draglink/trackbar drop bracket/cross brace
PolyPerformance front upper and lower arms
Dual indash DVD/backup camera
Tuffy full steel console

still to go 5.13s
fox steering stabilizer
mastercraft harnesses

I think that's the end of the list for this upgrade round

Here comes a buttload of pics

Those mods look GREAT! That's one he!! of a list. Really like the sliders and front bumper...and the high steer kit...and...and...

I may have to check out some more info from Tera on that crossbrace- Never seen that before...Or if you have any info ( what it's for, etc), feel free to post up that info.

Awesome looking build.

Thanks!
Carl from TF turned me onto the high steer/brace kit and phil sourced one for me
the brace ties the trackbar drop bracket to the frame on the other side to keep the bracket from flexing
to install the high steer draglink you drill out the passenger side knuckle and drive in a tapered insert and then just screw the new draglink into the adjuster.

I've got the RE high steer already. Uses a dropped tb bracket from the frame side. Wonder if the TF crossbrace is compatible? I may have to research this as I like the thoughts of any part that adds extra strength or reinforcement.

(btw- Katemcy is really callin you now!)

the brace and the passenger side weld on bracket would probably work
the driver side of the brace bolts through where the trackbar used to bolt up then runs across to a weld on bracket that attaches to the frame

Oh trust me, I see waterfall trail in my sleep now!

Nice set of mods. Most of them are also on my list but the CFO (wife) started cutting back on access to money for my Jeep addiction

Cool Jeep

actually I put it on like that so when I'm laying under the front adjusting the drag link to make the ESP happy I can peek up over the hood and tell when it's centered - if the tan is straight up, I'm good to go

the cage and most of the other goodies came from PhilD at www.trailduty.com
the snorkel you can get from www.quadratec.com
the stripe is from the local autozone or pep boys, cant remember which.

Hey Venom I was on 35 and ran across a Snake farm. I told the wife we have to turn around and see if there is a JK out there with Venom on the side. LMAO

I hit Kirby quite a bit on my lunch hour and play

Come spring, we'll have to go hit Katemcy!
