As of now I have 35 spline RCV shafts and an ARB in the front along with the stock locker (don't have a clue how the damned thing is still alive) with crome molly shafts in the rear both are the stock housings.

Well not exactly a mod to the jeep but one for it and my other truck. I bought a new 20' 12'000lb trailer and put 2 4' boxes on the front of it and added a few D-rings to the deck. 4000$ well spent.

Not exctly a mod to the jeep but it was for the jeep. Got a 2014 2500 Ram that is the same color as the jeep. A few odds and ends and some paint work and I believe they will look good going down the road to gather.

Nice Ram, now lets see some pictures of the two together. I miss my Ram, trying to talk the wife into getting a new 2500 for her daily driver.

Got everything loaded up for a weekend of camping and wheeling. Trying out a new setup this time. Going to try a bed mounted tent on the tow pig.

This is how things will probably stay for a while. Time to just spend the time and money on enjoying the jeep and camping as much as possible.

Nice build man. I appreciate a guy that builds a Jeep and USES it! I would like to know what you do for a living though, as I am apparently in the wrong line of work. It seems like you may have spent 100k on this thing already, and trailers, and new tow trucks!

Well the latest issue I have is the bolts backing out of the ring gear. They came out in November after 38 thousand miles after install. I pulled it down, cleaned every thing up, fixed the air locker line that got busted by a bolt then put pack togher with new bolts and lots of red Loctite. Fast forward to Tuesday and the front locks up about 100 yards from my house. Pulled the cover and there are two bolts laying in the bottom. Its only been less then two thousand miles since I put it back togher.

Well this time around I installed some ARP bolts that had a 3/4 inch head insted of the 5/8 and they also called for 85lbs of torque compared to 60. Fingers crossed that they will stay put, if not things are going to get interesting.
