    Tcase and wheels were done today. Diff covers wouldn't come off, so will do that another day. DIY Alignment and adjusting steering stops tomorrow. Might rig up my CB then as well....

    I'm an old timer in TW terms :homer:

    Still trying to piece together how I'm going about all this...have some ideas for what I want to do for the rear with armour and have some stuff in the post on its way for my Soccer Mom SUV :D

    It sits higher than the pictures show....this one is most accurate out of the lot:

    I have around 20" from diff to the ground in the rear, and like 21" in he front from the diff to the ground. :D

    Man, very nice !! I'll make it public right now.. I'm a little :jellydance:

    My brother had a lifted Cherokee & not only did it look great but they've got good weight distribution & 4x really well (I liked it better than the CJ5 I used to have years ago)

    I think yours is going to be one of those rigs that the more you drive it & MOD it , the more you'll love it..

    Quoted so :jellydance: is on record :p

    I was curious about weight distribution actually....friday will be the first time leaving pavement with it. I serviced my tcase today and tested to make sure I can shift into 4wd and all systems are go on that front. I honestly only like these and the wranglers out of jeeps products :eek:

    I like it a lot already...I think I might even like it more than my old Tacoma :anonymous:

    It's just a baby right now too, sitting at 85k miles :eek:

    Yeah it's solid and just the normal maintenance stuff for the most part. I had 318k on my 92 XJ when I sold it, and it was still a good runner. :D
