Lift Is Finished, Before and After

After 5 months of obtaining parts, 6 months of lurking in forums and asking a few questions, 10 days of laying on cement floor wrenching, I'm at a point where I can say I'm done with the lift part of the build. I have to thank all of you that have responded to my questions and provided input.


Parts include in the build:
Front lower Core 4x4 tier 3 control arms
Front upper Currie control arms
Rear lower and upper Core 4x4 tier 3 control arms
Rubicon Express 4.5" springs
Front JKS HD track bar
Rear Rubicon Express adjustable track bar
Tom Wood Drive shaft
JKS sway bar discos
ZJ tie rod upgrade
Also Spidertrax 1.25 spacers and ProComp Extreme Tire (285-75-16's) on OEM Moab wheels, and a Dirtworx rear bumper/tire carrier.


The build did go surprisingly smooth and didn't really have any problems. (Knock on wood). I've had it out for a few flexes and test drives and hope to get out next weekend for a little more testing.


Thanks again for the help,


Craig

Iím going to give you a little advice. Thereís a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball. --Ty Webb

I sure know that! This will get us through our Ouray and Moab trips this year. But already we're trying to work into the budget a gear changes, new wheels and 35's.

What's a budget? Spend until you drop, or get dropped.

A budget is when you are retired and on a fixed income. But we still want to have fun so we find a way. We like Ramen noodles.

There should be a special Social Security bonus payment for Jeep mods - about $2k a month should cover it.
