So I guess I should post this. Got the center console and installed it. Only issue was the broken cop holder mounts on one side. Otherwise totally happy with it!

Sorry for the extremely slow build thread. Weather has been **** so not much to do really.
I'll put on a two inch lift soon. Already have the shackles, just waiting on the spacers to arrive and the weather to clear up (cold and rainy).
After that (possibly before depending on the weather) I'll pick up some new seats. Hopefully grey this time, lol.

Then you're getting a bad mirror effect aren't you? If you take the tint off the back of the cap, it'll probably improve immensely

Installed the leveling kit this weekend! Looks so much better. Time for 31s? Hopefully I'll have the money by later summer or spring. Thnking a 3 inch bodylift in the future as well. But not before other things.

Looks good. I wouldn't get 31's, and then body lift. You're gonna end up wanting 32's or 33's after a BL. And then you'll want to re-gear because of the 3.0 and 3.45 gears, haha. Just something to keep in mind. You're 4x2 so you can probly just swap in a different rear axle with at least 3.73's or 4.10's cheaper than paying to re-gear.

Yeah, I'm looking at a rear axle on a buddies ranger he's parting out. If it's 3.73 I'll snag it. really want 4.10s but I'll take it.
I'm not sure when I'll do the bodylift. It will either be this fall or next spring. So I'm going to wait it out through the summer and see how things look this fall with tires.
