Project "FleXJ"

The madness begins as i use my day off to install my "piece mail lift"



All the bolts that I have been soaking in penetrating oil at random for about two weeks has paid off,no broken bolts or torches needed.




Here's the fronts done but not lined up as you can see parts are still just hanging



Had to relocate the front brake lines



Here she is off the hoist but still under slight preload from the hoist,stance is much better!




Just waiting for the tires now!



all didnt go as planned,still some issues to work out. needs adjustable track bar,rear brake lines extended,rear shocks ( coming friday aft from lordco )



Would like to thank the crew at Minute muffler and brake/Symons excel tire without their assistance this wouldnt have happened.

looks good, you can get russle brand braided brake lines from lordco for a pretty good price, and you can get them and length you want as well, piece of advice, get the rubicon express track bar and track bar mount, then when you decide to go bigger later on, no issues,

what kinda tires you planning on running?

yea I said the same thing , then came 33`s, then swapping axles, locking axles, bigger lift, then another lift, ,

but best thing you can do, upgrade the trackbar and trackbar mount like I said, swap the rear diff for a 8.8, get rid of that d35 crap diff, lock it as well, and swap the thin Cherokee steering out for v8 grand Cherokee steering, its solid, and will last longer as well, especially if you have a tendancy to not pay attention to what when your driving , and a slip yoke eliminator, then you will go pretty much anwhere you wanna go,
