In light of 2 recent events, I will be working to put an upgraded cage in the Tj. Not sure what I want but definitely need more protection than the factory roll cage.

Right on. After my roll I realized I needed A pillar support. I did spreaders too. I imagine everyone on this trip will get spreaders minimum after looking at that windshield.

Funny enough, roll cages are an easy sell to wives...

Jeep is officially done. Pro rock 44 with 35 spline rcv's loaded in the front. 5.13's are gonna slow things down a little. The atlas went in this spring. Waiting on some 37's to show up after I figure out what to do with the evap canister.

Awesome that you finished this project. Strange coincidence, I'm upgrading my front axle now too.

Is it really done or are considering a stretch with coilovers?

Well, picked up my new smittybilt bolt in cage with some poison spider spreaders. The ps didn't fit right so the whole project is on hold until I can get hold of them. It was kind of fun driving around today with the windshield down. Pbr's are on the way. Hopefully in the next 2 wks.

If anyone ever says 32 bolt beadlocks are awesome, it's because they have never spent the wknd torquing them down. 37" PBR's are on and somewhat balanced. Need to do a little fender trimming and flex it out. Whopper helped flip the rear bumps to aid in clearance issues but still having problems. Went from a 33.2 inch "35" to a true 37" tire. Big difference in clearance. Removed Evap and bypassed it. Fingers crossed about engine light. Trying to decide to keep current corners and cut them a little or go to poison spider/genright comp cut.
