    Work in Progress - 2004 LJ

    Like most Jeeps this one has been a work in progress. A fair amount of emphasis has been placed on seeing how much I can get out of a short arm suspension setup, as well as on keeping weight down. Basics for the Jeep are:

    - Metalcloak short arm suspension, fenders, rocker guards, full corner guards, & 6Pak Shocks
    - Currie HD steering, with Reid knuckles, Ford lockout hubs, & GM brakes
    - Dana 44 front & rears, with alloy axles, 5.13 gears, & air lockers
    - RubiCrawler mated to a 241OR
    - All aluminum skids (UCF & Savvy)
    - UCF aluminum front & rear bumpers
    - and much, much more

    Having been through multiple tires, these are now my favorite "multi-purpose" tire. They're tough, wear well, and function nicely across multiple use cases. I liked them so much I've now put them on two different vehicles, with a third set planned for a new project Jeep. My only negative comment thus far is that you can only get them in a "C" rating in a 15" tire.

    Very clean rig. I like the color-matched fenders.

    Very nice looking. I have a 2006 LJ with the MetalCloak fenders as well, as well as control arms and front track bar. Really happy with all of their stuff I have added so far.

    This is what a LJ should look like. Wish I had this in my toy box.
