Love the color. Is it just rattlecanned?

Love the look of the truck, can’t wait to see the finished product.  How do you like the ride and handling with the suspension setup?

You're certainly not wasting any time!  Great stuff so far!

Thank you. 

Actually painted out of a gun. I’m no professional, but I think it turned out alright. Posting some pics of the front end put back on this evening. I did a 97+ front clip.

In my very limited time driving it so far it seems pretty decent. Very responsive turn-in and doesn’t ride like it’s on bricks. I’m waiting on the addco front and rear swaybar upgrades to be built. But that should really increase the handling. 

 

Once I finish putting it all back together I plan to do much more testing on the suspension and see what it can handle.

Been a few weeks but finally made some progress. Got it most of the way put back together. I just have to finish up some interior stuff and sand some but it should be cruising this upcoming week.

I love it. Doing a roll pan or bumper or just running it as is? 

 

If I can find a roll pan that would fit with minimal work then I’ll do that. As it is now though I kind of like the no bumper look.

Love what you've done with it! :L:

 

Thank you. Hopefully I get some ambition here in the near future and I can lower it another 2 inch front and back. That will take some extensive modification though. Notching the front axle beam and in the rear it needs 4 link and coilovers. Hopefully in the next few months.

Can't wait to see this! Your truck is exactly what I want my second MJ to be! One lifted and one lowered!
