Yes. Update; Cut all of the rear shock stuff off of the axle and out of the body. opened the middle of rear load floor and putting shocks inside. finished all of the tubing in the front and radiator/condensor/trans cooler/steering cooler mounted and plumbed. after much weighing and calculating we have new springs coming. We will be running 150/225# springs front and rear. It worked out like that because of the angles at which the springs are. Fronts are at a 15 degree angle and rear are at 25 degrees. I will post some pics Monday or so....

Pics soon but it has been driven under it's own power. We had to replace the steering box due to an internal failure (darn reman stuff).We ordered front and rear Currie Anti Rock sway bar kits because boooooy does it need 'em!! :JEEPIN: We are also going to change the position of the rear upper shock mount a little :( .

Got the fenders and headlights on today. Got the door back from the body shop and it's on. Taking it to a parade in the morning and I will get some good pics. Power feels good still, gets out of it's own way.

Oh yea, to answer a couple questions.....

Image
Antilock brake module...check.

Image
speedometer....check.

Image
traction control....taken care of!

So basically no it is not legal,make sure the insurance company knows or it's fraud since they give automatic discounts for ABS and ESP just by make/model and year.

Jeeeez...lighten up..look at it, what do you see? It's a bad $$$ trail rig that would roll over ya'lls itty bitty KJs! ITS A TRAIL RIG ALREADY! But it will be driven on the road. I'm driving a '66 Ford LTD daily right now and other than a speedometer it's not as well equipped as this Liberty is. Loooook at it.....you know you love it :goink:

SO,
Maybe he wanted a trailer queen... I still think it looks like a pretty sweet build!!! NOt all jeeps are street legal, do you bash the JK trailer queens?

Cool build. Now hopefully your boss will let you guys wheel it instead of parking it as a model to only be stared at.
