Starting my MOAB build

So just to make it challenging, we have decided to finally start my upgrades for MOAB. Actually, it will start on Friday over at WSOffRoad.

Build will be:

Currie RJ 60s spec-ed out by Mr. Larry McRae (Thanks Larry)

RockKrawler 5.5 Long Arm with 3.5 Springs, New RRD Shocks, AIR BUMPS and I’m sure tons of other goodies Jeremy has shipped. (Thanks Jeremy)

JEReel Drivelines that Jim has been nice enough to 2 Day Air me. Thanks for not telling me what the total for shipping 2 day from Cali to Florida was Jim. I like surprises!

New wheels and so forth. I’m going to try and document the build as best as possible.

Last time she will look like this:


The Curries are at WS:






Cortney added a personal touch by painting some Yellow to represent my Ethnicity (Thanks Cort!):


New Wheels KMC Bullies 5x5.5 with Big Bore for Locking Hubs. Rock rings are removable. Guess what color they are being powdercoated:

The pics should be interesting. Kha is going to need to use a telephoto lens to get shots when the Jeep is on the lift.

Where are you mounting the rice cooker?
You couldn't have picked a better shop to do the install. Anthony and George are the best. Well.... George is. at least... Anthony.... well....
