Wow. I really like how everything sits above the frame rails. Super clean. :2thumbsup:

That's kinda an optical illusion.   Transfer case is 3 inches below the frame, so the skid will be even with the link mounts.

After replacing the intake gasket and valve cover gaskets Tim and I were able to get the EFI complete. As well as a steering pump cooler and almost completed a belly pan to cover to protect my T-case. Unfortunately as soon as I finished the welding I came up with some ideas on how it could have been better. Oh Well, next time.

I installed a BL and MML last weekend. So Body is up 1.25". Doing that we noticed that my shock was leaking so yesterday I installed new Rancho Shocks. :D

Getting closer and closer to my full lift. Just need to save for a couple track bars and I should be good to go. :D









Here is a before and after, although it is kind of hard to see the difference. Mainly see it in the grille guard position.

Sorry for the huge pics in the last post. Not sure why they are coming out so big. I have my photobucket set to have them uploaded smaller then what they appear here, so not sure what the deal is???

On that note, how are you guys sharing your pics?

I've always used PB but for some reason it is not shrinking the pics on this forum now. Guess I should check to make sure it is still uploading them to my setting I selected a while back. Knowing PB, they probably changed it.

Well, that is what it was. They switched it back to the biggest upload size. I just changed it. Will try re uploading my pics and edit my thread.

I got some new beer holders installed last weekend, then this weekend I was able to get out and use them. I was given these flares for Christmas, although they are for a TJ, they work better than the YJ ones because of the bigger opening, I just had to cut a little sheet metal and drill some extra holes.

I have the forum set up to shrink pics to fit the forum theme. Your pics don't look that big to me on my PC, just slightly bigger than the theme.

I figured out that PB had changed my original setting back up to a bigger size. So I went and deleted the last few pics in the post I made above, and re uploaded them to PB at a smaller size. Then came back here and re attached them to the post.

Everything is fine the way I saw it. The only one that seemed large to me was the comparison pics, next to each other. They're still a tiny bit large, but acceptable. the real problem with this forum profile is that it will only give you a sliding bar at the end of all the pics you post in the same post. Which was why I asked that everyone just post 3 pics per post. But that wasn't working too well, so I just made the max size a certain point. You're fine so you don't need anymore changes.

Now that I'm looking at the pics again, you should also think about replacing the D35 rear differential with an 8.8 Ford diff. and before you do that, get a locker up front.

Took mine out to hollister yesterday with a couple buddies. Tried going through some pretty gross mud but managed to not get stuck. Didn't get much for pics unfortunately nobody had passengers to take them. I need to go buy a pressure washer now though.

I have yet to figure out how to use the forums picture upload. I looked for one but didn't see it.

LOL on the Ford rear end. Not going to happen. :D I will be happy once I can get it lifted an inch or 2. :D
