(Edit) Per Pete's comment below on this thread, let's make this a sticky.

I was going through some pics on the computer and found this shot of elff and Jerry's Rubis at Paragon in December 2002 before we started to improve on DC's design:



Here's a shot on the same rock in September 2003 from a slightly different angle. Stock is good. This was better. :D



And here they are in April 2004 with 6 inch AiROCK suspensions. Even better:

That first pic is day one and the next one is 505 miles later.

I added a teraflex st4 and 34" trxus mts and a few other goodies. I am currently thinking of adding a 1" bl, 2" coil spacers and a tw driveshaft.

just installed.... Bumpers, sidestep,steering guard, oil trans guard, rear flaps (easily removable for wheeling, just protecting the $$$rear bumper during winter here), deflectors to keep the trail based pinstripers at bay, Foglight Guards. JKS Quick discos on da way as well as Younger Bros Diff Guards and Skid Row LCA skidplates. And Tomken Rock Guards which I will interchange with the steps for wheeling... ain't happy with the clearance lost with the steps. That's if the bastages finally ever ship the stuff!
See if you can guess which is b4 and which is after :lol:

I will have to call the vinyl shop to get the font style, I changed it to set myself apart from all the other regular rubis here in town. As for the flares i fust removed the bolts took them into work and cut them on our BIG ass bandsaw. I cut them off where they start to roll down. I just tucked the side marker bulb and wire under the other wires. I will post a better pic of the rubicon vinyl tomorrow, I am walkin out the door to goto work.

Who would have thought a snowy day in Paragon would be the last day Jerry or I had extra cash

I actually put together a little chronological timeline of my mods

You should have that bird go back and touch up the spot on your rocker guard that it missed.
I hate it when the help at car washes get lazy
