aic's BFG build thread and repair thread

So now that this has shown up I figure its time to start my build thread!

I have an 89 Cherokee called the BFG (name comes from my licence plate BFG ####) Bought it earlier this year for $500, and have more than 3x that in repair and parts. but its all good.

Day I brought it home:

Got my new brake lines installed, and old lower control arms off. Haven't installed the new ones since I have a question on measuring. Do I measure from end to end, or bolt hole to bolt hole? not sure...
