Looks good. I like your front bumper. Did you build that yourself?
it is a currie bumper, but I capped the pointy ends off and added the tube work. Design was inspired by schmo's (schmozilla)

Bling bling dude... You may want to see if you can make that upper a bit longer (pinion travel)
Yea, I'm planning on bringing them back further but I didn't want to mess with the exhaust yet. School is about to start kicking my ass so Ill try to get it done before Moab in March

Looks good. You still using the stock steering box in its original location? If so, did you have to move the panhard frame mount to get the 2" out of the front?
Steering box is in stock location. Ill snap some more pics this afternoon. I BARELY got by with the 2" front stretch, the tie rod is actually directly underneath the waggy pitman arm and stops at full bump about 3/4 inch away.

So, all you did to get the 2" out of the front was to move your panhard frame mount and get a waggy pitman arm?

I threaded the RE lower arms out so about 1" of threads were still threaded, then sleeved over the exposed threads to keep from bending. I rebuilt both ends of the panhard mount to get it out of the way of everything. It is moved up on the axle and up on the frame. I had to use a waggy pitman arm to get the travel out of the longer knuckles on the 44. here are a bunch more pics that should show how everything went together.

I still need to connect the tube flare to the CO hoop, make inner fender wells, re-do the front upper links and do a passenger side bumpstop on the front, but everything else is about finished up.
