    bastard packs consist of (top to bottme)-

    stock xj main leaf
    3 chevy truck leafs
    1 big fat chevy overload leaf
    3 degree shim
    xj stock overload leaf cut down to act as 1/4" lift block (just for good measure)

    1.5" teraflex shackles also being used

    if the stock xj measurement from axle hub center to TDC fender flare bottem is 17" then i gained a whopping 5-1/2". i hope it settles out down to the 3" i was going for. took it for a quick run and the ride wasnt too bad but the headlights sucked!

    now for the 3" HD front coils!

            Looking good man! Get those front coils in and you'll be ready for some bigger rubbers!

              haha, the ride is fine for my "young butt".

              bigger rubbers=bigger budget which i am currently lacking so until then the 30" tires will have to do.

                Looks nice Josh.
                But I think you need more lights.

                And is that a set of Legos in the box back there on the shelf?

                  lol, tom, what r u talkin about?

                  the 3" HD coils gave it 4" in the front. i had to tweak the front sway bar ends to align with the sway bar axle mounts (home made discos still work), i trimmed the shock mounts for LCA clearance, and i made 2.75" lower shock mount extensions (BPE + metal channel sort of). i was planning on drilling a new hole to mount the track bar in to re-center the exle but it wasnt off by more than 1/2" so it wasnt worth it. now all i have to do is finish the rear shock upper mount 3" extensions (rear axle sway bar mounts + double I-beam sort of), add rear bump stops, and maybe extend a breather line and im good to go! sort of.

                    Looks good with the new coils on! Hopefully I'll be making some progress soon on my lift. I'm heading out to the JY's today! I love having Good Friday off!

                        It's just not glowing very much yet!

                        Seriously, that's a great looking Jeep.
                        I really like that front bumper (since mine has the ARB, I'm sure you know why I like that one).

                          i got bored and decided to do some painting-

                          http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y96...2/4-14-061.jpg

                          shocks went from white to black and the i painted the dif gold because it was the only stand-outish color i had.

                          and while under the jeep, i found this little issue-

                          the rear trailer hitch rusted through and now its bending from yanking other peoples heeps.
