Did a little work to the Jeep this week

I finally got my jeep back a couple weeks ago after being repaired from fire damage from three months ago. At the time I thought insurance would total it, so I sold off my lift and wheels. I love second chances! Anyway, here's what I idid this week.

Installed:
3.5" Rock Krawler X-factor lift
35" MTR's on Black Rock steelies
EVO 1/4 pounder front bumper
LoD shorty rear bumper/tire carrier
LoD sliders
Smittybilt XRC 10 winch w/ synthetic

Cut: (Don't be afraid to cut your Jeep)
Pinch seam
Bash bar
Notched tranny skid
Fenders
Exhaust pipe

Welded:
Teraflex axle gussets
Rock Krawler front trackbar gussets
Rock Krawler rear tracbar bracket

Looks good man.

Is it just the angle of the picture or is your rear axle really tweaked?

It's just the angle of the photo. Axle is perfect, RK lift does push it back an inch.
