    Coils arrived today, and they are thick. Heavy as fuck too. Half tempted to throw them on this weekend and see how much lift I get. I got some .75 poly spacers front and rear, but I might need to wait on a stupid fucking exhaust spacers. We'll see how lazy I am come Saturday morning.

    Nice James. Have fun with the build. You can call me if you need help, or want to drive over to wrench at my place. Just got to deal with my 4 year old wanting to be in the thick of things.

    Just took it out for a bit of a drive, and I am happy to say, it rides pretty damn good. The new motor and 3.73 gears with a manual shift is not bad at all. Got it in 6th gear was was cruzing pretty good. Now Florida doesn't really have any hills, but I don't see myself needing to re gear.

    Nice James, looks a hell of a lot better already. Going to have to flex it and see where you rub.

    Actually it's my 4th JK counting my wife's but who keeps track. lol This one is sticking around for quite some time.

    Lift installed yesterday at the Big Cock Offroad Super Center. Got like a good three inches out of those Old Man Emu 616 front and 618 rear. Drive shaft angles are "OK". got about an inch between the exhaust and the and the front drive shaft. Need the spacer if I disconect. Gonna order than this week.

    It drives great. Could use a rear track bar relo, but it's really not that bad at all. Ride is tough. You feel the road and every bump it has, but I like it that way. Raw Dog FTW!

    And the Bullshit Begins!

    All ready to swap my Rugged Ridge XDH bumper on today. So I get to work taking the stock on off only to find this fucking thing that I totally forgot about.

    Where is Larry, I need a facepalm.

    Forgot about the Vacuum Pump on the 2012 JK. Good thing for me, I have the relocation bracket that rugged ridge supplies. Bad thing for me, I don't have the instructions for it and have no idea where it gets relocated to. Been searching the interweb, but can't find anything on it. Plus I got to cut the OEM bracket off and don't have a dremel or wheel. Guess I should have though ahead. Oh well. Gives me something to do next weekend. I am getting to be a pro at bumper removal and continuously fucking up simple projects.
