GreatD

Did you ever get you harness back? Did the rewire solve the ASD probelm?

Cheers

Not yet.  They were supposed to send it out on Friday.  I am going to reach out to get the tracking number.

By the way, rear wheel wells have been opened up.

Thanks.  And yeah, I did not think it would look that drastic.  I trimmed a lot of the inside of the TJ flares too.  I figured I only wanted to cut these wells once.  Maybe too far?  But I think it will work.  That trailing edge of the tub (before cutting) sure was close to the tire.  And I don’t want more lift (yet)

Not going to try.  With the 35s, I need to regear as it is.  The regear/locker install will be $$$$$.  Ugh

Looking good Dain. You're just running a 4" lift right, no body lift? Trying to guage how 35s are gonna look on my CJ. Its almost done but I've only seen pics of it with the 33s and not the 35s yet.

Thanks John. 


This has 4” in the leaf springs, .5” by way of stock YJ shackles, and 1” of body lift via body mount wings were raised when welded to the reame (not simple puck lift).  So with the sag, I guess around 5” of lift total.

The lift combo was perfect for my 33s when flexed as much as it could (limited by the brake lines).  So hopefully the 35s don’t get stuffed in there too much.  I don’t really want to go higher.

Very cool raising the body mounts on the frame. Good info for my project going forward.

I learned that from someone else.  And since I had to replace them anyway, might as well do it.  Better than the pucks in my opinion.

Dain,

Well, the harness arrived via UPS last night.  I worked too late to do anything with it.  So I got up early and installed it before work.  Turned the key and VROOM!  Started right up.  So I am a very happy little boy right now.

Next steps will be to get the exhaust hooked up and make sure all of the lighting works.  That is where I might be calling you.
