Someone DID say BBQ. You're more than welcome Bill. If so, bring that awesome Cuda of yours.

 

I'll get a better picture of those rims because they are awesome. Jim did a superb job again and they'll really look great on this Jeep.

Finally a moment to get a bit of bench time on the Jeep now that Jim's wheels and hubs came in. Here's a mock-up with the hubs on and a better shot of the wheels. These are real beauties. Jim's stuff is flat-out awesome.

No way is this going to be anywhere close to being on the judged tables for this year's DSC. Next year.

Thanks for following along Bill and Tyrone.

 

A bit of bench time in but it sure does seem like much was accomplished. Worked on the roll bars along with the pins to the chassis and body. Put together a mock-up for fitment and pictures.

 

Here's a few with it sitting on the bench. I'm happy with the stance and the ride height.

Brad,  This is looking great!  Back in the '80's I knew a guy who had an '86 CJ-7 that had the exact same lift.  I can't wait to see this one all painted.

Thanks for the comments Michael and Larry. One day, I'll get back to this. The bench is calling but I'm unable to answer.
