i know, i know.  just wraping up bunch of little things, not very exciting.  still need to do exhaust, sliders, air intake tube, wire the arb lockers & switches, add nitrogen, bleed brakes...
   
added a plate and tube to help brace the upper link:


shocks are in and arb pump mounted




cut down the brake lines, relocated the bump stops and added limit straps, parking brake cables. 


how she sits:

i did a little research and found that it is designed that way to have equal length exhaust pipes to the muffler.

Well,, the Saturday after Thanksgiving kenny(the king) and I took the jeep out to Ocotillo Wells for its first test drive.  All I can say is wow!!!  She drove across the desert at 50 MPH and soaked up all the bumps smoothly!!  She received compliments everywhere we went, and people kept asking what kind of suspension I installed.  I just kept pointing at Kenny in the passenger seat saying, "he did it."  we took on some pretty difficult obstacles at the 4x4 testing area and the jeep did great!  Flexed great!  Crawled up everything we pointed it at!  except for the 6' pipe at the top of an obstacle(but that was my fault cause i didn't want to give it enough gas to high center and fall onto the other side).  It would have done even better if we aired down the tires to an appropriate level.  There are just a few more things to do. We will install a rear antirock swaybar to give her better street manners.  Then I will have another fabricator who bends aluminum fab up the front inner fender wells and a box to cover up the rear shock tower.  I'v already ordered the rear fender flares, and ill have them on in the next week or 2.  Thanks to all who checked out the build.  I will post finished pics when I'm all done. Thumb-Up cheers Grin Cheesy Just-Kidding

Thx Mike,, but that is a little expensive considering I already have Ridged Dually D2's, and if I want more out of the stock lights, I can just buy bulbs
