Yes it is the same paint. I have used it on a few different spot now. It is a great color. The clear I like to use is this:

Lift: Looking at Rock Krawler 3.5" lift?
The muffler I have now is a Magnaflow 3" and it sounds great! The body is something like 22" in length. I got it from Kolak for under $100. Shoot him a PM he will know which one you want. A lot of WK/XK guys run it with the stock pipes.

You should also look into the other 2" BB out there. You can find cheaper ones that give the same result. Even though RK lists it as a 3.5" lift it is actually about a 2-2.5" lift, same as the other BBs.

Down here it isn't too bad being a big military area, but up north with all the liberals gets iffy. I really need to get a new one, this one looks like crap!

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Nate, how tough is it to swap the UCA's yourself? I'm gonna be upgrading mine shortly and I want to know what kinda tools, etc. I'd need to get the job done myself instead of bringing it into a shop.

Thanks!

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

Not tough at all! Jack the thing up, unbolt the ball joint, unbolt the UCA front the frame, and it is out. Then bolt the new one in and you are finished!

I don't need to compress the springs or support the LCA at all?

Re: Omelet's Build Thread!

I just made a sweet purchase from Amazon! I am hoping everything works out as planned. Not sure when I will get a chance to work on her though
