    Hows the turning radius? That front tire looks a little tight against the rear of the front fender.
    You never truly know your limits until you exceed them....

    If you notice, the front is still on stands. It isn't driveable yet in the state it is in, like I said in the post it still needs LCAs among other things front and rear. It sits "unfinished" while I work on a few things throughout the week

    Oh and thanks Billy, Tony and Nine-T-1!

    Nice work man! Love the built ZJ's... not enough around here if you ask me.

    I assume you've come across this in your travels on the interwebz mallcrawlin those guys really know their sh!t

    Just finished getting mine up to 6" on double triangulated long arms.

    Give us a call if you need anything, I'd recommend a transverse pivot trac bar mount (turn the pivot 90 degress so it articulates properly and doesnt bind) and a HD/tow point style rad support...both affordable mods.

    Also I have a JKS adjustable rear trac bar fresh off my truck, I'll let it go cheap if you want it, highly recommended to avoid ripping the mount off the axle with the added leverage of a raised bracket.

    Time again for an update...

    - Replaced worn out tie rod end
    - Installed new steering stabilizer, made a considerable difference
    - Trimmed lower fascia of front bumper for clearance and wheel well areas to allow tires to turn to full lock left/right with no rubbing

    Had some help from JPhoenix and Jeepgirl73 with the trackbar... I popped something in my back trying to get the bloody axle end trackbar bolt to continue turning. Used Paul's bear muscle to get it going some more then eventually snap the bolt in half Popped the upper control arm off, put an impact on the nut and broke it from it's spot welds, trackbar came right out. Using the included trackbar relocation bracket right now with some new hardware but will eventually go for an adjustable in the rear.


    Tried a couple differend methods of trimming and found the angle grinder to work the best and quickest. The bumper does start to melt and fly chunks but wear pants and you're fine lol.



    Fascia trimmed as well but I might go up a bit higher to even it out and rid of more of the right side corner damage from previous owner. It'll do until a new bumper is built!



    Stabilizer in place



    Trim turned out really nice



    Ass shot
