    Installed the AEV rear diff slider, these things are life savers , protect nthe yoke, and help alot with not getting hung on your diff and leaks

    Shock relocation control arm skids today, Jk rear shock brackets are horrible to get hung on rocks, these raise the bracket 1.5 inches, and give the entire control arm bracket and the shock a skid, a MUST HAVE on a jk in my opinoun

    Installed the full set of Rock hard skids today, makes it slick underneath and take a hell of a beating.
    The trans skid is extremely important on auto Jk,s, the pan and lines are exposed , seen many get smashed and is a fire hazard .

    Fender trim complete, decided to go the FREE route in extra tire clearance, along with the yet to install Teraflex 2.5 lift.
    If done correctly they look good, boy I have seen some screwed up ones too. Fender trims with a chainsaw lmao!

    The whole trick to em is knowing what to cut on sequence, they have an inner support and the front inner liner is reused

    Work to finish up Bad Medicine..

    Tire carrier, Ace engineering, 4 weeks out
    Bumper delete, ship soon

    2.5 Teraflex lift

    Front axle sleeve, C gussets, Jcr truss, synergy ball joints, control arm skids, steering dampner flip, track bar reinforcement , check joints, replace seals.
    Truss on rear axle.
    35x12.50 17 Falken wildpeak Mt,s , be here tomorrow, install on wheels.
    Might not sound like alot, but that's about a week for me and Josh, we are slow!!

    Our aim with this 4dr Jk rubi, is like the two drs, to be super reliable, tough as hell under neath, drive great on road and perform on badass trails.
    WAAAY, down the road, maybe 37,s and more goodies.

    My Motto so to say has allways been, (Make it Tougher than your tire size, because reliability trumps capability every time)
