    I definitely have a backlog. The part I am looking forward to the most is doing my own alignment after the lift and steering. I have what I need to do it, but I never really thought it was something a person could do, at this point I feel confident in my ability to get it really close and then just verify it at a regular alignment shop.

    I also forgot one of the first things I did, I pulled the stock rock rails and put on LOD frame mounted sliders in their place.

    It wont look a whole lot different at the end, but its definitely going to be prepped to hit some more aggressive lines.

    Maybe an alignment is something I should learn to do. I took my DD to Big O (because it's walking distance from my house) and now my car veers right off the road if you hold the wheel straight 🤦

    I just did mine this week, it's pretty easy. I use two pieces of superstrut the same length as my tire height and take the tires off, put the center most hole of the superstrut around one lug against the rotor and tighten it down with a lug nut. I use them on an angle with the rear end lower to compensate for Jeep parts in the way of the tape measure and put a builders square (could use anything really) under the lower ends to make sure they're the same without having to measure. I use two tape measures and some small clamps at each corner and it's super easy, just twist the collar until it measures correctly. For the steering I just put a clamp on the center of the wheel so I can see it through the windshield and twist the collar until it's straight.

    Home alignment optons....These are kind of pricey versions of what you can scrounge up, but since we are often talking 1/8" difference in measurements, it might be worth the money for 'precision' equipment....ymmv....i've been debating getting the TMR one. More modern vehicles might not benefit that much from just a toe-in tool, as caster and camber may also need to be checked....

    I did pick up one of those toe brackets just cause I was ordering something. I had planned on using angle iron. I also have a cheap digital angle gauge for caster and pinion.

    Alright, I exported some smaller photos to share.

    Driveshafts are in, and the mains skids that come off easily are painted.

    I should be ready to start the lift install after thanksgiving. I will be doing a lot of cleaning and touching up of the surface rust while I am down there.

    It also really looks like a few well placed drainage holes could do a lot of good for these skids and crossmember.
