I threw the top back, snatched the doors off, and drove it like I stole it.

...all the way to work.

Will do boss. I know there are some shock mount relocations that someone sells, but I can't remember who right off the top of the head. I'll let you know. We are going to talk to a couple people about it and should have some more on it later in the year.

Jim that MF ING waterfall on CD got my ass again boss. I hate that GD thing and it's going to make me spend money. I faired better than Spicoli do though. I just bent my tailgate a little. He busted his rear drive shaft.



Hey Andy. I'm loving the face you are making scaling up that climb. Looks like a cross between an I'm gonna own ther mother look and a Damn I gotta poop look and I'm running a red light if I have to.

Pics look good though and the rig looks pretty stable.

I started putting on my BB finally, started at 5:00 stopped at 7:30 due to no lights in my garage. The rear and left front is done. Tomorrow I'll hopefully get the right front and quick disconnects installed and back on the road.

Got the 4.56 gears a Aussie lockers finished up, front and rear. Man, I never heard any locker make this much noise. Called the Tech line, they say it's normal. Give it 200 miles to settle down some. The jump from 3.07 to 4.56 is just simply ausome.

Kinda like when I yanked the 4.3 V-6 out of my 93 S-10, and dropped a mildly stock 350 in. I had NO 5th gear last week, tonite I have acceleration in 5th at 65 mph.

If the ratcheting gets to you. You can always bump up to a little bit thicker gear oil to help it out.

Yeppur. In stock. I double, triple checked and made him give me a blood oath. Got it from David at northridge. When I called him he was litterally on the other line with FT. When he said he had them I freaked and called him a liar. He laughed at me and I made a reference to Trip's thread and QT. After telling him about that I made him triple swear again. He still didn't u/s why I was being so anal about it. I expld a bit more and expld my own findings when calling QT and 4WD, 4WP, etc...back order, back order, back order. David said, "that's probably b/c they didn't order over 100 last month like I did". Free shipping to boot, as always. He's calling me back today w/my tracking#.

I'm going to run coilover springs in the rear. Not going with full coilovers. With the 14 bolt you have to cut up the rear frame or dove tail it in order to clear the coilovers. Plus I don't want to spend that much money on it. I have nothing in the rear of my jeep so the springs should work out great for a 10th of the price.
