swapped out the old dana 30 for a newish one found in the junkyard. Old housing was bent. swapped out the old front suspension 2.5in lift (completely rusted) with rough county 3.25 shocks and springs. had to drill new hole for the stock track bar. took it for a test drive and the DW just about took me off the road. looked at my track bar and it bent through to the stock whole. NOWWWWW im effed 1500 dollars later... and rear suspension is still not installed due to the fact someone mounted the shocks with regular hex bolt that are impossible to get to. FRUSTRATING DAY!!! any idea before i take it to the body shop and pay more money i dont have?

Saturday afternoon my wife and I decide it's time for an adventure. We took the top off (of the jeep) in the middle of a great thunderstorm and went grocery shopping! When we came out I had to pull the floor pan plugs because there was about 3" of water in them. We couldn't see out of the windshield because it was raining on the inside of it; jeeps really need inside wipers! We laughed all the way home....soaking wet!

Tomorrow I will spend the day cleaning the rig to make sure we didn't damage anything. That was a blast!

They actually stink. They were on there when I bought it and I just haven't replaced them yet. They aren't tight at all and move constantly.
