Let me start by saying that I'm so tired after this weekend of wrenching that my beard hurts.

First and foremost I would like to thank all that helped me out this weekend installing the RE 5.5 LA lift kit on my LJ...The work would not have been done or have been as fun without their efforts and for that I am grateful.

Willy, Joel, Marcus, Rambo, Sergio and Dustin :2thumup: :thankyou: It was hardwork, but as you will see below well worth it. My jeep went from zero to hero :biggrin1:


Current Upgrades so far:
Smittybilt XRC rear bumper with tire carrier
Smittybilt Front Stinger
Rubicon Express 5.5 Long Arm
SYE
Tom Woods Drive Shaft
Procomp Xtreme M/T 35x12.5
Procomp Wheels
Riddler Diff Covers

I will post some more pics but for now here are some before and afters.

They are currently burried in the back of his LJ with all the other stuff he had to take home last night. That LJ is packed :rof: it will take him several hours to unload it :rof:
