Nice looking Jeep. Desert Sand is a nice color. Not that I'm biased or anything.

The cluster is so easy it took me maybe 10 min and I can only do small mods anyway on my budget

I didnt know it was that easy, and as it good as it looks I may give it another look.

The write up is on here somewhere isnt it?


How is the Ausie locker treating you? Im thinking about getting one(lokka though) for the front.

Yours is in the rear right? My Detroit in the rear is pretty loud too. For the longest time I thought something was wrong with the rear. lol.

What are your thoughts on how the Aussie acts and performs in 4wd?

I have an Aussie in my D30 with 4.56 gears and have had it in there 2 1/2 with no problems whatsoever. It's a great locker for the price and makes a world of a difference off road. I would recommend they to anyone.

Recently did some more mods. Added a new soft top with tinted windows, a spider web shade, lifted it 2.25 in , removed the plasti dip from the hood (nightmare)! , and painted my flakey swaybar
