Thanks bud....It's been a process but I have never put a single dime on a plastic card.
Saved and bought.
Honestly though it was pretty capable before I started the upgrades. now it just does it a little easier. I grew up in Erie. Let me know if you ever want to head up......


Also want to add that the upper adjustable arms are Teraflex the lower arms are Tomken
I installed the Novak shift cable conversion a few weeks back because I constantly had issues with the factory set up.

Build looks good!

I am in FOCO and looking to regear but kind of refuse to pay what the shops are demanding.... You think Tyler would be interested in doing another set for someone?

Did the price you listed include gears, or did you provide everything? I have ARB's ready to go in and would like to regear soon to 4.88. Shoot me PM if you think Tyler would be interested.

Thanks!

Dustin - One of my neighbors, who swapped out my rear springs and installed new U-joints in my spare shafts, sets up gears. He's owned quite a few Jeeps and is a mechanic for the Guard by trade. Good guy. On a previous post, looks like he charges $160/axle for labor and $80 for a selectable locker install at the time of regearing, though you'd want to confirm. A little cheaper if you drop off the axle. You supply gears/install kit, etc. I can provide his number if you're interested. Those are pretty sweet rates...

Thanks Jason. You and I discussed him a few months ago, I am going to try to find someone really local to me (FOCO) first. If I can't I will expand my search area.

I am doing quite a bit of work, therefore, also need welding skills etc.. Also, I like to help and watch...

Now back to Colo-TJ's build...

It was great. I flexed all the way to a wheel stand a few times and never did rub. Only thing is that if I decide to go 37's down the road I will probably need a little more lift or a set of highlines.

Highlines all the way!! Keep that lower center of gravity whenever you can.

Long time no chat man. I sold my Jeep back in Late June '13, but I'll be looking into getting a JKU in August/September time frame. Once I do I'll hit you up so we can get back on the trail together. I miss my rig so much and can't wait to get another Wrangler.

For sure Jason.
I thought I saw your rig for sale a while back on Quincy.
Hope everyone is doing well.
