Figured it out. Kept sending me to the Canadian site. Thanks for the help. Now to wait :) BTW most of my information is from the tummy tuck thread. Very helpful.

The LJ is killing the bank, and my wife might kill me ! I have finally made some decisions but also got some more questions. I have ordered a few things from TMR . A short arm kit and the truss kit. For springs I am thinking of the Metal Cloak dual rate springs. Just not sure of the height. Cant decide between the 3.5 and the 4.5 .

That S Tech looks awesome. It fits so well you'd think it came there from the factory.

Also, those CJ turn signals look great too. I'm a bit more partial to amber, but clear doesn't look bad!

Are you doing a full paint job as in under the hood, body off, fully stripped down to the bare tub?
I have started painting the inner fenders with rust paint. I will have the roof off and bumpers , lights, seats out when it goes to paint. The shop is a few houses away from me so I will have it ready to spray then take it to him. The inside will be rino lined after

Well the flat fenders are done . I am now trying to finish painting the inside of the engine bay. I gave up on trying to reach the back of the grill and just took it off to paint.

I am going to be doing the suspension soon. I have decided not to stretch the LJ for now. Now, sense I bought the 3 link and 4 link builder kits , I can make the arms any length I want. I am looking for advice in this area. Has anyone built their own and how did you determine the length for your arms?

Rockers have been all repaired and painted with rust paint. Armor will go on before jeep is painted.
