Thanks to the phantum and Dale, I'm more than halfway home on the install of the Skyjacker. We have pix to show everyone, and I'll be doing a write-up on everything. Phantum will hopefully assist in getting all the technical stuff worded properly, but at this time the results are staggering!!! We've got the front done (just need to fasten the coil springs down), and have started on the rear shackle bolts and shocks. I've already had three bolts break on the rear shocks, so those will have to be drilled out. This is going to be totally unadulterated awesome-ness!!!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

The lift is in. It looks bad ass and rides very well. Allen is gonna get it aligned and then goto work, so I'm not sure how soon the writeup will come...should be within a day or two though.

Allen, we gave you two hours, where the heck are the pics. Mr. Green

I followed him to Merchant's to drop it off...should be done by now. I priced the BFG A/T 30x9.5's while I was there, they said $120.95 plus $11.00 to balance and install. They had 4 in stock only. I guess I could get 4 now and when it's time to rotate get the other one. Yes Steve, I am a Du'mass because I didn't realize I had a full spare with a matching wheel. Whatever.

Qad, I got paid like a good pimp should, my bizzle hooked a brother up with a whole slew of suspension crap...LCA's, springs, shocks (all good for trail spares) and a 2" b/b for a nominal fee. I gained a couple two, tree pounds from the pizza and sub too. Thanks for that Allen.

If I'd have known there was pizza I would have driven the 9 hours to get there. Shocked

Hey man!!! I treat'z my peeples' ritez!!!!! Mr. Green

I've got all the pix pulled down to the PC, and onto a CD for phantum to post up. They came out damm good!!!! If I get time tonight I'll start the tech write-up. There's gonna be a lot to talk about, from the LCA's and trac bar relocation bracket, to the BPE's, rear shackles, and the AAL's.

BTW, I've already gotten some cool looks and a thumbs-up from two different offroaders, one in a TJ and one in a 4Runner. That extra 2 inches must've made a difference!!!!

crazy jeep thanks thumbs

Steve and I were critiquing on the flex hill like two wine tasters, "Steve, that's fabulous." "Yes, marvelous Dale, surely marvelous!" Not making too much of a fuss, even though both of us were frickin' drooling. Allen was still in the drivers seat and I said, "Dude, get out here and see your rig." Allen jumped out and just freaked out, in a good way.

Steve-o: Yes, this looks particularly interesting.....

Dale: Not too shabby for a few days work, don't you think?

Steve-o: Not-at-all... has a certain charm to it....

Dale: Hey Allen, care to hop off and take a look at it?

Allen: Sure, why not (worried look on his face as to what he might find)

Allen: (moves around the side of the Jeep...)

No problem, any time. Besides if I didn't let him go, he would have just mopped around the house all weekend long Crying or Very sad crybaby

But hey, Steve has not given me my share of the pimp fees!!
