installed the longer front shocks. I also ended up adding longer swaybar end links because it ran out of travel before the shocks.

installed the full width rear bumper, four door rubicon rear springs and rear shocks with a two inch longer extended length. I still need to install the front shocks with a two inch longer extended length. I have four door rubicon springs with 1 3/4 spacers all the way around. Hoping to add 35 inch tires next year. I will still run the narrow 33's in the winter.

added a full width barricade front bumper last fall. I have a new full width rear bumper being shipped now. I added rubicon four door front coil springs to help with extra weight of the winch and winch bumper. I fabricated a skid plate extention welded to the front bumper to protect the motorized swaybar disconnect.

repaired wrecked 07 rubicon
« Reply #1 on: September 30, 2015, 08:45:27 PM »
purchased my jeep wrecked from an online auction. Jeep was much worse than I thought. The front axle housing was bent, steering column broken, steering box output shaft snapped off, steering linkage torn off and sitting in the back, windshield frame crushed and roll bar bent. I straightened the axle housing, repaired the steering column, replaced the steering box, replaced the steering linkage, replaced the windshield frame and straightened the roll bar.
 
 I paid $6300 for it wrecked, spent approximately 200 hours repairing it and another $6000. It still has plenty of minor damage I did not repair but in the end I am glad I did it.
