I have to say, your jeep is beautiful. The thread is inspiring and captivating.

Nice work building it up, as you have. I envy the tools, shops, and deals you can find.
Definitely will be keeping up with this thread.

That's a shame. Well, you have the practice, knowledge and memory though. And i am sure this is a thread to stand the time.

Let us know when you have a new project: you keep them up really well.

New plan: I'm keeping my jeep and doing an engine swap. This should get exciting... Also my HIDs are in and I think one of my sensors is messed up

So I was planning on selling my Jeep in order to have a more capable ride to get to college, but I decided against it and instead I am just going to make mine better for highway driving. AKA regear! I found an 8.8 Trussed with a spool and 4.88s already installed for $250. While the spool will have to go, for that price you can't buy a trussed 8.8 for that price, much less one that is re-geared so I am going to take that route. So an 8.8 install is in my near future, and then a front regear to 4.88s. for the spool I will probably just go take spider gears out of an 8.8 in a junk yard and just use those.

other projects on the list are to reinforce my tire carrier, put a latch on instead of the pins, and put a better hinge on.

I am at college right now, but I am still going to start gathering the pieces for this summer!

If I find a d44 with 4.88s already for a decent price I would consider it, but I don't see that happening so for now I will just regear to 4.88s most likely

Waiting on a response from the guy with the 8.8. once I hear back from him in confirmation my dad is going to pick up the axle, and I am going to order my front Ring and Pinion. Next I am going to order the adapter flange, and then the 8.8 shock mounts, and spring mounts. my goal is to have it all back by the time I get home from college so I can jump right into it and get it all in within the first 2 weeks

Heard back today! Moving forward with that, I'll be getting it In March. Can't remember if I said it had a spool or not, but it does, so that will have to go. I'm told I can just swap in spider gears from another 8.8 though so I am just just going to do that.

Yeah, I was back in forth with selling it, engine swap, or just regear. found this axle and decided to just go with the regear. also on my list of things to do is install a small BL 1-1.25" maximum, and maybe go to 35s. not sure yet though. and I want to build an overhead CB mount. that should be fairly straight forward.

So the guy with the axle bailed out on me when I started asking for to much info about the axle. probably something wrong with it. back to the drawing boards.
