Nice!  For a JK... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

I don't have a lift, compressor or garage right now. Most tools in boxes, rollaways are in an area I have to climb over shit to get a ratchet!  :rolleyes:

I was supposed to have a garage with High ceilings and a lift, but for budgetary reasons, now its just going to be a 2.5 car garage.  I cant wait!  This place is driving me nuts!  It's like Russian Roulette just to do a brake job in the drive way. 

sorry....End of Rant...... :redface:

Nice Jeep. :cool:

I really appreciate all of the compliments! Can't wait to get my own garage. Always been a dream of mine. Unfortunately how my property is set up it's not really feasible. Next house I'll have one!

RockHard 4x4 skids installed. Would have gone on like a dream if it wasn't for the lift. Had to do some trimming.

Really not happy about putting this on the outside but seems like I bent the factory skid so much it was impossible to put on the top. When I have the time I'll need to drop the tank and bend it back to shape.

It will flatten out. If that hangs you up, you have much bigger issues...  :rotflmao:

Thanks!

Hanging up is what I'm afraid of. But without it was way worse!
