    Updates! Sam no longer works with Jon at flop shop due to drama, but has his own shop and is continuing the fantastic work here and there as time allows.

    My full hydro fully operational

    new custom exhaust, no more heat and fumes in the cab

    the King Pin High Pinon D60 is all done, and locked. Full Yukon treatment as planned

    the rear blew out an axle seal but I did replace it and it appears to be holding up, also Full Yukon treatment there (less the diff cover)

    King coilovers on all 4 corners now 14s front, 16s rear

    King Bump Stops are on order, should be here within a week, I'll be trailering the jeep back up to Flyin' Iron Fab (Sams new shop!) to get those bumps in the back and keep that tire off the fenders.

    also need to replace the winch..

    I guess this portion of the build is mostly done, up next is some maintenance issues, resolve the running hot ordeal, maybe a flush + new radiator? its been over 10 years.. also need to replace the doors, or at least a window regulator.

    Next phase of the build is bucket seats, cage and maybe upgrade the Tcase again to something lower. Once that's done, idk what more could be done! seems like end is in sight!

    Again, your zj looks like an absolute monster. I think I had tried to call the flop shop about doing my SAS and either they never answered or weren't interested.

    That's kind of crazy our rigs are like at the exact same stage in terms of what we feel "is left". I think I found a more local fabrication shop for my next phase here in Castle Rock to handle my cage and atlas tcase

    Don't know MFI but I went by and checked out Altitude Offroad and they seemed to be capable with a ton of fab work going on in their shop. They also are familiar with and work with ORI struts which is kind of a must for me. When I was looking for someone to do my SAS some people didn't work with them and some seemed to not know what I was even talking about which is kind of crazy.

    If you have a better recommendation or have heard anything bad about this place please let me know I'm all ears.

    I've never heard of that shop, Jason at MFI does really good work, quite possibly at more reasonable price, sam at Flyin Iron Fab makes art out of fabrication, he did a lot of the work on my jeep as well, he is in Commerce City in a small shop. Highly recommend Sam at Flyin Iron, worth the drive.
