I am loading her up for an overnighter at the shooting range with my buddy's this weekend, first trip out so we will see what all this Overlanding talk is about. Let us know how you like the 2" lift, I put a 4" lift on my Jeep years ago and I hated the way it drove so. A lift and bigger tires looks cool and helps with the ruff stuff but so far the dirt to icy pavement ratio favors the leave it alone side.

Strapped my traction boards on the back of the rack to see if that's where I want them. It's either there or in front of the axe and shovel on the driver side. Not sure what I'll do permanently yet.

Pulled all the plastic trim off the stock running boards. I'll probably hit them with bed liner so they have some sort of grip. Little dirty under the plastic.

Tuff Country torsion keys in front, add-a-leafs on back and new shocks all around. Added about 2" to Chuck's height.

Front brakes will get done this weekend - needs new rotors and pads. And I've decided to do a disc brake conversion on the rear as soon as I can, because drums suck.

K so brakes were delayed so I worked wheels and tires. Nixed the black paint on the wheels, maybe later. But now Chuck is beast mode...IMG_20210906_174149211_HDR.jpg
Some trimming needed, started with bumper...little cut Top and bottom, remove the plastic, whack with BFH, hit it with truck bed liner, adds 2" of clearance.
