Looking good. When you get it done we will have to go to the Badlands and wheel or road trip to Turkey Bay and wheel with Josh and Dempsy.

I might be wrong but the durango might be the same chassis as te commander so the axle might be the same.

Don't feel bad, it took me 5 years to get my CJ down to the frame. I've had the parts for the axles so I can rebuild them since last winter, but have only got the AMC 20 apart so far. Taken me so long, I bought a TJ so I can have an actual running Jeep. You're doing fine!
