smileys are good make the forum more emotional so there is no confusion as the type of mood the person is in.. and how he or she talks if they mean it or if they are just joking or whatever the case might be Adding those smileys was a good thing.


I flipped over my door steps. Do you notice a bodylift that easily now?

well yesterday (its always going to be "what did you do for your Jeep yesterday? for me, cuz im on here in the mornings, after ive done the work...) I read the sticky on changing the gas tank from 15 gal to 20 gal, did that, and found out mine was stock 20 gal... sooooo....

put the passenger door back together...

lubed up the seat sliders and passenger thing that lets the seat come forward so people can get in the back..

cleaned out some of the previous owner's junk

found out i have an exhaust leak, so im looking to get pretty much all new pipes today or tomorrow

lubed up the doors, made sure they came off nice and easy

and replaced the bulb behind my hvac control...

thats pretty much it. oh and if you dont have a can of tri-flow in your garage (or your dad's garage for that matter), get one. it is THE MIRACLE SPRAY. haha...

Have you never seen a front dig? Let me see if I can find a video. But then you might want it.

This has some language but it is the first I've found.

The Stak is different though. You have options. There isn't just FWD and RWD options. There are also gearing options depending on which tcase you get.

This is the option I want for my jeep. It just isn't in the budget this go round.

5.44:1, 3.05:1, and 1:1

You can switch to all 3 different gears. Makes for a great all around tcase and you get better gearing options over the atlas.

5.44:1? TOOOOOOO LOW What are you running in your diffs? 5.13? With your monster V8? However that being said I can see why you want the 1:1 and the 3.05:1 so that you can baja the hell out of it.

5.44 would be nice for the really technical stuff when it is slippery. You would have some amazing tire control with that low of a gear. 3.05 would be great for all around wheelin and 1:1 would be great when it is my day to get the groceries.

The one thing I think of when I see 5.44:1, 5.13's, LS1 is SNAAAAAAAP when you hammer down the go pedal.

You got 35 spline chromo's in your 14 Bolt?

I completed a couple things today that have been in the works on the new front axle.
1) Ground off all the old brackets and perches.
2) Installed new Alloy inner shafts (with outers)
3) Installed new BTF high steer arm (I did this Sat but no camera)

At this point we need to do brakes and get the truss installed (should have that this week)

Ah, but Jimmy you hadn't painted the BTF arm this weekend.

Looking good with all of the brackets gone.

#1 is probably the worst job I hate doing.
#3 is that there tie rod end arm??

What truss are you using?? I hope it isn't blue torch.

#3 Are you asking if that is their tie rod arm? If that is the question yes it is.

It is not a BTF I have one coming that is a new design. It is the first one they have made.
