What color blue is that? Looks awesome! Looks a lot like the 2015 Wrangler blue.

Very nice! On the old man emu springs, did they bolt in without changing mount locations or centerpin?

Nice job, Frankenwag!

J20:I believe that he had to cut and reweld the perches to get the Tacoma springs to line up. Depending on year, Tacoma springs are 51"-54" but the center pin is typically biased towards the front. (I'm assuming he went with a 1st gen taco setup, though. If he went 2nd gen I may be wrong!)

Thanks guys.

Actually, if you look at the "Meet Honeydew" build thread, you'll see it was totally redesigned, the springs were mounted in a more traditional fashion, under the frame rails. Dimple died, and burly as can be

The front sway bar is still connected. I never really had a reason to disconnect, and the fact that my retaining pins for the quick connects are frozen.
