got my swing out carrier about 85% done and got it mounted on the jeep. the spare tire is sitting a little higher than i thought it would but i have about 3"s i can drop it if need be. theres still a few things i might change but so far its pretty solid.






the new lights i mounted on the front.

plan was to put the 2" budget boost on today, i got the rear shackles on and it basicly just leveled the jeep out. so i decided not to add the front till i get new leaf springs for the rear. i also trimmed the rear quarter panels.

lastnight i pulled the jeep into the shop and started cleaning the engine bay. A/C didnt even have anything in the lines so i started ripping it out, cruise control didnt work so its gone.





yup theres a fender



yup thats the back



first cut



i did the cut and fold on the rear wheel well so i had to bend some of it back out



couple more cuts



inside piece folded up



used a BFH, jack, and a chunk of firewood to fold it up nice and tight



i seen another guy use pop rivets but just used self tapping screws









old shackle and new rustys shackle



i was kinda leary about doing this because of the fuel lines on the drivers side. they were never in the way, i pulled the cover off, cut and folded the fender, and was able to bend the one side of the cover and bolt it back on.



didnt realize i didnt have a pick of it with the tires back on, ill get one tomorrow.

Nice work. Looks simular to my 88 with the mods. My sliders are .120 3 1/2 square turned on edge, with a step cut in and plated. Also built a 4 x 5 1/2 roof rack mounted to the drip rails (also is my spare mount up there for the 31-10.5.

last week i replaced my coolant bottle and heater hoses, figured since i had all this room i might as well change the spark plugs also



getting the factory press clamps off, i used a cut off wheel then used a screw driver to spread the clamp and pull them off.





then i started on some plating, side protection and getting rid of the stock tail lights with the molded plate and round lights.



thats as far as i got, last weekend was hunting and this weekend is the toy run at virtue
