the rear is probably ok as-is with my 3" of bump-stop extension. at full stuff, they only just kiss the rear bumper and wheel-well liners.

the front however needs some additional bump-stopping. when fully flexed, they hit my shortened bumper upon turning inward, and i can barely turn outward before they grab the flares.

so more hockey pucks have been ordered!

 

also waiting on some front lower coil retainers from the idiots in the Quadratec shipping department. the drivers side keeps rotating out of it's notch in the perch as soon as i flex a little. then i get to listen to the spring smack the sway bar for the rest of the run.

Saturday we did a run near Sunflower. i hadn't planned to do the rock crawl, but decided to go for it and Gadget did awesome! hopefully Diane has some photos...

 

 

Sunday i added hockey pucks for more bump-stop extension in the front, re-torqued all the wheel spacer bolts, and while the tires were off i spray painted the white letters black on the inside (yes, i do realize that's crazy)!

moved my ham radio from under the driver seat to under the steering wheel (inside the dash) in order to make room for a birthday present from ScottL... thanks for the drawer dude, it's installed and full of junk already!
