Lift Kit Done!!!

Finally, I decided to go ahead and get a 4" sua suspension lift. I really wanted to go soa, but I felt that my knowledge and skill level was not quite where it needed to be to complete a successful soa. It flexes great, and we just put about 1500 miles on it without any problems. It went on without any major problems, and here are a bunch of pictures of the jeep and some piles of dirt(dont worry theyre in my yard).

Thanks - we use the PA all the time. Its great when somebody decides to walk in front of you at a green light or something like that. Nobody ever expects it and it scares the hell out of them.

Looks better but here's a tip, ditch those Hawgs soon! Now that your ready for some action it some real 33's like the TSL variety.

Re: Lift Kit Done!!!

I just got done with a 2 1/2" BDS install on our 80 CJ-7. I hope yours went on easier than mine. Three of the main eye bolt sleeves rusted solidly to the bolts. It took a lot of PB Blaster, a BFH, and an air hammer to get them out. Also the rear shackle bolts rusted so badly that I had to drill out the bushings a little before the air hammer would get the shackle to move. I replaced all the bushings so it doesn't sway very much at all when changing lanes on the interstate. Before my son would never drive it faster than 45 mph but now it drives like the YJ. It will easily cruise at 70 mph with out any trouble. We haven't flexed it yet but we will see how it does at the GLJT Summer Bash in a couple of weeks.
