    Well after the paint dried it was hard to not push through another few minutes to get it rolled under the jeep and stab some bolts and get the coils mounted....then the next day got the brake line hooked up and shocks installed etc. set the jeep down on it own tires for the first time! Really looks perfect and sits just right with the front a little lower than the back.Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0346.jpg Views:	0 Size:	559.3 KB ID:	11841Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0339.jpg Views:	0 Size:	1.05 MB ID:	11843Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0347.jpg Views:	0 Size:	557.3 KB ID:	11840Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0344.jpg Views:	0 Size:	702.0 KB ID:	11842

    After another couple weeks went by and I got back in town I picked up the new driveshafts and also built my steering components. I also went ahead and serviced my transmission and finished so I could install the tucked belly pan for the last time.

        Installed a new tire carrier that incorporates a new frame mount and reinforcement for the tailgate. Have had several jeeps with the tire carrier bumpers and they are such a pain daily to swing the tire and then swing open your tailgate...this is one smooth and easy to open setup! Love it! It has a sweet LED third brake light that shines through the wheel mount. Click image for larger version

                  Its been great! It was originally built by Tom Woods for the XJ and I had to have it shortened for the LJ and they did a great job!
