i've been running the BB since just after the den. next pic will be after this weekend (hopefully). saturday i have plans for me & my cuz to install the 2.5" skyjacker springs and hydro shocks in the front. i'll try on the rear springs but may just stick with the procomp 1.75 pucks in the back to level out the jeep.

ok added my pic up top after i installed the 2.5" skyjacker front springs. even though it doesn't look it, there is still a very slight rake. when i measure from the side steps to the ground, i came up with 19.5" front and 20.25" rear. so about 3/4" difference. but, not really noticeable. that is also after adding a tabor 9000 lb winch to the front mopar offroad bumper. just gotta fab up a bracket for the solenoid and wire it up...

Looks great bro! Some poeple have put the soleniod behind the grill with access between one of the seven slots. I`ve seen a pic somewhere and it looks good.Just something to think about.

that's exactly where i want it. but i didnt have time to take the grill off. the leads are really short from the solenoid pack. like 12". i wanted it there b/c its a lttle less conspicuous. also gotta get one of those license plate holders that flips over the fairlead to make it a little less noticable. when i'm sure i got everything where i want it and working right, i might have to hit you up for spot welds on the bolts Adam. dont want my winch walking off on me..... :watchout:

Just lemme know when you wanna spot weld it. Also, You could pick up a Mag flashlight bracket set for about $6-7 bucks, screw your license plate to it, and snap it on your fairlead. A cheap fix.

the tera disc were cake to install. when i get a break from working, i'm gonna do a write up with pics and a write up on the front spring install. but with a family business, getting away is hard to do. i work til 9 or 10 ish... end of the month. but, i hope to be free this weekend to head up to NBO's opening with you guys. :mischievious:

hey adam, maybe i could meet up with you at your house before you head out and test out the flex with the new springs and disconnects on ur rocks?? :punk:
