traded in this for...
introducing Jackhammer. I'm a big fan of Coheed and Cambria. I thought this name was fitting per the comic and off-road.

Any reason you are going with the Lock-N-Load Long arm over the 4 link? And which DVD Head unit did you go with, as that is one of the next upgrades on mine.

first real mod was trading my Rubicon wheels for a set of AEV's. Big thanks to Jason at Rock Your 4x4 for the swap.

Honestly I have always been intrigued by the lock and load ever since I saw it on a TJ. I'm also a fan of doing things a bit different. Hence the full float kit from Teraflex. But it also fits my needs.

As far as the head unit, it's mopars RBZ 430. I got it for $150 and it still had Sirius subscription. Works great. If I had the money, I would go with the Alpine unit made for the Jeep. It's incredible.

next up I sold my HR bumpers to get aftermarket. Purchased a hi-lift and sadly traded my hard top for a soft top and cash. Really wish I wouldn't have, but it did pay for the tire cage.

Gotcha! I personally run the 4 Link Rocksport Edition kit was the only reason for asking haha. I will have to look into that head unit you found, I like the Alpine but man the cost is crazy!

Poison Spyder tire Cage, Gen-Right Fusion Stubby bumper made of aluminum. Like the bumper, but wish I had a bit more protection on my corners. I guess once I get fenders I will have the armor.

Yeah it is stupid expensive. Our neighbor has one and the interface is out standing. I just kept watching the classifieds and Craigslist for the RBZ. Finally found a guy who just wanted to pay it forward. I have seen similar deals since getting mine.

The 4 link is nice. Don't get me wrong. There are Plus and minus to both systems. At the end of the day...I guess I'm kookie and want to be a little different. I also like proving the "negative guys" wrong...

this will cause....
this on 3 of 4 wheels, and then leads to this....
one of many bent control arms and mounts....one of the problems of running no lift.

dont remember when I put these on, but I did have a picture of where a rock sheared off a bolt. Was a super easy fix. Bolt came right out and I put a new one in.

found a deal on these. Blasted the rings and coated them with some red urethane
crushed the stocker and replaced with Evo and....
broke my nose in the process. Nothing like a slipped wrench to the face!
