Looks sweet and BIG. That first ride after working so hard is very sweet and those little things that still need to be done don't seem so bad.

I'm waiting on my first ride after the preservation tear down. Just being able to turn the key and hear the engine crank over was a big motivation factor.

Now all you need to do is add a nice cage to protect you while wheelin it.

BTW, it's never "done" ;)


Looking good now though. I'm curious once you get flexing if you are going to have rubbing issues. What springs did you use on the SOA? Do you air down to get it in the garage?

Haven't had it off road yet, I'm guessing the rear tires will rub a bit due to the rear axle being moved farther back with the different springs.

I used YJ Rubicon Express 1.5" springs for the SOA. I removed a spring from the pack too and it is very soft!

Yes I had to air all the way down to get it out of the garage. I don't suspect it will be parked there. Probably will live outside.
