Look damn good. There is just something about lifted white vehicles that make them look great.

I'll start a new thread in off topic soon. I've been at work for three weeks, then busy since I've been home and only using my phone. But I'll make a thread over here soon enough. I'm trying to get everything together and setup for a 9 day trip to California during my off time next month.

What part of CA? All the way down or just northern Cal?

Not far down. My family owns a cabin in the mountains in Siskiyou (I think) county. It is totally off the grid, down a long gated gravel road, near Nordheimer creek campground on the salmon river. We will probably spend a couple days in the redwoods as well near the eel river.

Yeah I know, need a new thread but it's late and I'm laying in bed with my phone.

Installed a new y-pipe as the front driveshaft contacted the factory piece under full droop. It use to cross under the driveshaft boot.



Now it crosses here.



Went out to check suspension clearance. Did not fully flex suspension as I need to trim the rock rails and pinch seam in the back, but you get the idea.
I have to say that the off road handling is amazing. The electric sway bar disco works in 4x4 but only until 18mph. With the sway bar disconnected, the custom tuned bilsteins and progressive springs it is awesome. 4 low rocks as well with a 4:1 ratio. The Jeep also has a brake hold feature which I originally hated. If you're stopped on an incline in gear (or decline in reverse) the brakes are held until the clutch engages. It's awkward at first but with low range, you can just ease the clutch out in first gear and crawl away. To further assist, the idle bumps up an additional 200 rpm in 4 low.






Finished painting my removable rear shelf. It is 3 pieces, what a pain to figure out how to make this easily removable with the roll bar in the way.



Since I needed a bracket to fit the full spare on the gate, it blocked the third brake light. I cut the old "tower" but left enough to mount an antenna or flag mount for the dunes. Then I made a new bracket with aluminum stock (needs paint).





Next is a new Tom Woods front driveshaft. I don't like the cv angle coming out of the transfer case. The boot can last 20k miles or 500 miles, once it tears it's done. Im getting driveline vibrations from 60-70 as well. I had the tires rebalanced and rotated to elimate that possibility, but a driveshaft is on the way. There are no adjustments for pinion angle but the pinion angles are good, and the output from the rear of the transfer case looks good as well. Hopefully the driveshaft clears it up.

Roughly 700 miles before the lift. It had a couple hundred when I bought it, I drove it for a week, went to work for three weeks, and had the lift waiting when I came home. :)

I've always liked the four doors lifted, not a huge fan of how they look stock. Should be fixing that real soon...
sad to see the truck go, but the jeep is nice!

I just had to reply to this post, the 3.8 was a complete dog. To put it into understandable terms, my ranger beat one in a straight line after it had 35's on it. BEFORE regearing to 4.88's haha
