Update on what I've been working on.

Took 2" body lift off so had to bend up a new bumper. Somebody made a joke about side stingers so I had to roll with it.

Josh hooked me up with 30spline chromoly birfields and knuckle kit from Trail Gear. Thanks josh for the good deal and hope your getting around better. If you guys didn't know Josh took a fall and broke his back last Saturday.

Sweet, new parts! Let me know if you need any help throwing that stuff on. Sorry to hear about Josh.
Oh, and I checked out that black 4runner at glissons, but I didn't get to it in time. I went down there that night, but they were closing and I was told to talk to Duke( the owner). Well, I couldn't get ahold of him before they processed it. So as far as I know, it is sitting in the yard right now. I bet the top would be good for you, just needs one glass, which from what I can remember, is one you have?( Passenger side front glass on the removable top)

May want to move on that 4Runner at Glissons fast. I'll probably be scavenging it while I'm home this week. :D

Check the jk forums. The rubicons come with 17" rims stock and they are upgrading all the time.

No it's waiting to get fluids drained and stuff like that. It's not too late to save it from a early crushing.

Did you look it over much? It looked like something with the engine was blown because when I looked up through one of the front fenderwells, you could see oil all over the side of the engine. Don't know about you, but I don't have the resources to be swapping engines right now.

No didn't pop the hood. I can swap engines but don't have one.

Stock calipers, but the options for 16" rims are very limited. I would love to get some 16's...

Check the jk forums. The rubicons come with 17" rims stock and they are upgrading all the time.

I'm gonna look. I need to get some rims/tires for her JK, the thing actually came with 18's and could fit some 16's as well.

Glisson's is still "prepping" the one 4Runner for the yard. The guys working there asked me if i may know why about 4 people have already come in asking about it. I think they're on to us. :D
