The install would have gone great, but it was all the little problems that caused it to take so long..... had to redo brake lines, and a whole bunch of stupid little things..... all in all it took us 12 hours the first day, and 20 the next haha...... way longer than the one i put in my grand cherokee took haha... but all in all it looks great..... now we just have to deal with some minor issues
 






what kmak said.. we just ran into some brutal problems, anything that couldve gone wrong, went wrong... lol o yeah and we still need to put the rear shocks in :P , but for now it looks like i got sweet hydros...
 






hmm, brakelines breaking? Who's ever heard of that happeneing. Not at 1am in pottstown trying to finish the install after starting at 10 that morning. :fire: We ran into those problems as well, I would see a grand lift taking longer b/c they are coil sprung all the way around, the rear SOA was a sinch, the coils took forever. And replacing the control arms is no fun, I put a lift on an XJ today at work and the damn things are a ***** to get lined up if its not on a lift.
 






Update!!

updated!!!
Got my new tires today :D :D :D :thumbsup:
33" 12.5" procomp Xterrains with some 15X8 black steelies
