rebuilt? no, swapped? yes! There's a link in my signature that may have some helpful info if you drop the tranny/t-case. I did it about a year ago

Traded my original bumper and winch plate for these all terrains and wheels. Haven't put them on yet but just wanted to see how they looked.

I really just want a good set of mud terrains though so I'm thinking I'm going to try an trade this complete set for either a good set of 33" or 35" mud terrains

Also fixed the other shackle in the rear so both back shackles match now and put on the interior bumper support mounting bolts. Both jobs were a pain since the shackle bolts come off towards the inside of the jeep and the bumper support bolts are hidden way up behind the gas tank. Both needed to be done though and now she sits level in the rear and the bumper + tire carrier doesn't wobble around near as much.

Going back to the post above this one, what mud terrains are you guys running? I have baja claws on there but they are difficult to find and are only one directional which makes carrying one on the spare a 50/50 chance of being useable.

Traded the all terrains for these mud terrains last night. Really looking forward to seeing how they look and ride. They are 35/14/15. I wanted to try out the 35's to see how they would look and maybe consider doing a fender trim job in the rear and a small body lift. I know 1.25" is the popular choice but If I do 2" will it be that much worse? Not doing 3" cause I think it looks horrible and don't like the feel of it if that makes sense.

Gumbo monster mudders. They were in a jeep before and were said to be decent in road and good off. I'm hoping to get them in this afternoon so stand by for a road review.

Really Good weekend. Was able to drive home and actually get a lot of work done on the Jeep yesterday. I'd have better how to pictures but there was about 6 guy in the garage tackling different sections of the jeep.
Its amazing what a case of beer and some pizza will do to motivate some friends. lol They helped me out alot this weekend.

Here's what we got done:
35/14R15 Tires mounted on the new rims I finally got!
Valve cover gasket replaced
Oil Pan Gasket replaced
Rear Pinion Seal replaced.

Took a few hours but everything went pretty smooth. Very happy overall.

Here's some pictures:


New tires getting tossed on the rims at a mom and pop


Discount balancing them for me.


Valve cover off


We had two others on the other side helping as well


Old rims and tires next to the new ones

When I get the money I'm going to toss some new 35" KM2's on there but these will do for a while.

Next on the list is new shackles and small body lift.

Alright, I need you guy's assistance please.

I am pretty set on getting a 2" body lift, mainly because I feel like paying bascially $100 for just 1" isn't worth the money to me. With 2" at least I feel like I am getting something. I know 3" is WAY to much and it looks goofy in my opinion and nearly everyone mentions the 1 1/4" being perfect.

I just need a bit more clearance to flex. I have the 4" pro comp leafs and basically have the shackle lift (replacing the shackles this week with Booms though) and I figure body is the last thing I can do.

Anyone have the 2" and regret it? I plan on removing the factory bushings and just put in the new pucks so its probably going to be 1 3/4" anyways but want to here if anyone has regrets? Thanks

Shackles came in and very nice product. I recommend them to all. Especially for the price and quality.

Rear installed with front going in today. Pictures to come!

I have a 2" body lift. I personally like it. My bro has a 3" and I thinks it's a bit much.

Hoping to fix my headlight problem I went ahead and took the switch out and cleaned all the terminals as well as the headlight connections themselves. It was pretty dirty so I'm glad I did.

I'll see if it fixed it tonight, otherwise I'll take it apart again and check out the heat connections as mentioned above.

Removed the side fenders and step to give it a cleaner look. I'm going to work on putting some angle iron there in its place and make a step soon. For now I just primered it though. Looks cleaner for sure.

Here's some tucking of the 35's. Almost have it in there but the 2" body lift is like to get and maybe a little longer bump stop should do the trick. Definitely works much better with the fender trimmed though. I'm happy with that.

And then today I finally finished replacing the junk rear shackles I had in there and the stock from ones for the booms I got offline. (link is a few replies above)

Overall: exceptionally happy with them! They look super heavy duty and great price. Look forward to testing them out in Austin in 2 weeks.

Looking good. After the body lift you should be fine with rubbing. I can't get mine to rub under full flex. Shackles look good.
