Got it 99% wrapped up this weekend. My Dad and I stayed out there most of Friday, Saturday, and finished it up today. Feels GREAT! I am still going to do something with the steering. But, I am not going full hydro, because I want the thing ready for break up. And re-working the steering wont take long at all. PICS!!!!!!











The suspension works excellent so far. Moves very smooth

The rear moves pretty good. They are stock wranglers with a add-a-leaf. One reason they dont look like they are doing much is because the front took all the movement. It is felxing a little in the back, but not much. It moves a little more than that Need to find something bigger to get on And I need to bump stop the front, and limiting strap it up. Thanks for the compliments.

Hey thanks guys. I tried to build it tough. And make it to where there was no way that it could come apart do to what kinda stuff I used. So I am hoping for it to last for awhile.

Phill - Fenders are next. I cant stand the look with no fenders.

Brook: Dont worry man, I will make sure it has bump stops, and strap before it see's anything over flexing in the yard.

Ranger: Those are Bart Monster rims from Summit Racing. They are welded fully around the back is one reason I like them alot. They are 15x10's. And back spacing I dont know. My brother ordered them awhile ago for his truck and never used them, so I took them So I would guess standard.

Brian: That is some good news to hear you wont be leaving till then. We want to get back out on the trail with you before you head off that way.

Here are some pictures of the Jeep not ramped on a snow bank I got to drive it some today. Feels way different than it use to. And all I did was drove it around the block a few times. Cant wait to see what it is like on the trail. Hope to get the fenders on it tonight, along with some other small stuff. Then I need to get some bump stops, and straps and I should be close to being ready to go!

Got the fenders on. Going to go to Alaska Rubber and get some edge rubber, and some rubber to make it so NO MUD gets to the motor. I love the way the fenders look on it. Gives it a stock look

LOL redbulltoy! Thanks for the compliment. Today I have been fooling around in the thing. And I can tell it has gotten 100% stabler (sp) on off camber spots. Instead of feeling like it is going to roll, you can tell it is holding to the ground. I can not wait to get it all complete and take it on the trail. Should feel like a whole new Jeep.
