Thanks guys! I always forget how small it used to be and it has been a while since I pulled up next to a stocker to see the difference. My wife said I should get a Polaroid camera so I can leave a pic of mine next to there's whenever I see one I think it's an Awesome idea!!!

I still don't think SL is really quitting on us. I bet it's a ploy to sell more lifts!

"It's 5 1/2" wide overall, with a 4 1/4" inside stripe, each outside stripe is 3/8" and the gap is 1/4". "

This is according to this guy, hahaha

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Would have been fun to work out the angle to stick them on. How did you do it as the rake of the body would have stopped you using a level? Angle gauge on the lower step pressing in the door and then 90* to that?

Haha! You are really thinking this through! I used the crease that runs down the side of the Jeep just under the windows. The badge was applied about an 1/8" below the crease so I just did a 90 up and down from there. I tried a few different angles and this was the one I liked the best.

I haven't had a chance to upload these until now. On Thursday after finishing up changing the fluid in the front diff (which is a little more difficult now with the SL crossmember) I took the fam out for a late afternoon ride.






I found a pile of rocks where I was finally able to flex this thing out to the max!















At full stuff in the rear I still have some wiggle room. So as I was hoping I get to chop down these massive 4" bumpstop extensions. I think I will go 1/2" at a time until I can stuff a tire like I used to be able to. What sucks is having to remove the coils to get to the bumpstops. Also once I swap put the 11" rear shocks for a set of 12" I will has more down travel which would have kept the tire on the ground in those shots. I am looking for a good deal now. I found a guy in LA with a brand newish set who wanted $300, bit they were the wrong valving. I really want to find a set with blue parts like I have now, but that might be hard since all the ones they have made for the past year or more have been black. So let me know if anyone finds some please!!!
