Re: My JGC 2012 black on black build up

I added the sharkfin antenna. Thanks Visual Garage. Awesome paint job on it.
I broke my OEM antenna after a couple in/out of the garage. I was too tight and the antenna was hitting the garage door. So the solution was this:

Re: My JGC 2012 black on black build up

yo! nice work on the build

You keep mentioning a ".75 rear coil spacer"

1) Who makes that?
2) Where do you buy it
3) Any info would be great

Thanks

Re: My JGC 2012 black on black build up

Nevermind I just watched your Youtube video - awesome find man

I actually have Eibach Lift Springs on the way and I was planning on installing just the rears (I have Bilstein 5100 series shocks all around) I am sitting .75" higher in the front currently

This has me thinking

Re: My JGC 2012 black on black build up

Honestly if u have a skill with a plasma cutter and grinder. Not to mention being able to use a tape, u can make ur on spacer kit. I order the trim kit from RRO intending on adding to the front 2.5" spacer lift kit they sell. Come to find out it's just a 1/4 plate of steel with the bolt holes drilled in to it

Will add the 0.75 coil spacer in the back next week. The 1.5 wheel spacers in front, and no more rubbin







Hey Bud,

Quick question? When you installed your lift did you do an alignment after? I'm getting my leveling kit done next week and just need to know if I need to align everything up after install .

Re: My JGC 2012 black on black build up

I just took a good amount of time perusing your build and I love the look.

Would you be able to provide a link to the leveling kit you used and any input on the install?

Also, are you still on stock shocks? How are they holding up? Any new photos of your Jeep?

Re: My JGC 2012 black on black build up

Bora has 1.5 spacers. On my stock 15 altitude the tire sticks out about
.25 inch from the flair. It makes for a messy truck pretty quickly. Should have stuck with 1.25 spacers.
