Shiny!

FYI, if you get a 2" lift and put all that armor on, you'll probably be back down to 1" lift. That stuff is heavy.

Re: bought a "replacement" jeep

that would be ok with me im planning on skidding it so well so i can stay low and not worry to much. worse comes to worse i can always run a spacer and a shackle just depends on how it runs at that height.
