I didnt get the harness yet, Im ordering it today. I should have just spent the damn money and bought a Rubi to start with!! Ive practically built one now since the only thing different are painted fenders and electric sway bar disconnect. Well and I guess the NP241 4:1 rock gear. Guess I'll be getting that next.

I did order the 6" springs like you and Dave have with your kits. With my 1" BL that should put me in your ballpark. Guess I'll keep the mid arm Full Traction lift for now. Im going to need to save and buy driveshafts!

Nice Rooster. I dropped your brake lines in the mail today. Should be there in a day or two. Keep us posted on how your install goes - I'll be doing about the same thing at some point.

Edit: there will be no resell ...nope. Im riding this thing into the ground or it'll be my son's first vehicle one day.

That's the spirit. I already told my 4 year old that he is getting my Jeep when he can drive and now he tells everyone that it is his Jeep!

Jeeps, watches and guns. Just taking care of them for the next generation!

Yes I know. I wanted 60's but considering these Mopar axles are a little over 3 grand and I got them out the door new in a crate for 2 I think I stepped in $hit and come out smelling like a rose. You have to admit 2 grand for new sticks are a pretty dang good deal. If I break'em I'll go 60's. Or if my wife finally leaves me! lol. Until then Im happy I atleast got these 44's. My ultimate goal is to build one similar to the Off Road Evolution Jeep. I may go Rock Krawler though instead of EVO's set up. I want coilovers though. Babysteps...

I bought some Procomp MT Mudders and another set of Procomp wheels too. Im taking off my current set of wheels/tires for River Rock so I dont damage them. Im not sure if Im going to keep them though cause I really want some 15" KM2's and cragar soft 8's for krawling. I couldnt pass it up though, too good of a deal. Yes Im broke now...Do they have a broke smiley?

Rooster.. when are you going to River Rock??

I am suppose to leave tomorrow, but Moose512 ran into a couple snags installing my armor which may keep me home.

I could bring my 2 door up, but it is stock with just wheels and 32" pro comp MT's
