Nice find, the ones I was finding on there was around $200 and for that I would rather make my own but for $120 that's not too bad and does look like a good kit.

I have the same pull kit. Works well but someday I want to get rid of the cad and do locking hubs with solid axels.

What a day.......got to the shop this morning and my wife calls and says water is spraying everywhere in the basement... Run home to find out that my water heater blew up.......never seen one do that before but it busted both the cold and the hot lines on top and deformed the whole tank......got a new one installed and went back to work. Got home around 4:30 to work on the Jeep and my dad calls needing help with a busted water line......finally got back home to spend about an hour on Blue Bird........



Took the old 4X4 indicator light switch and the new one to make the switch look nice.....

As far as I know that is the original light but it did not work before. With the new setup it works......

Are you using the stock trac bar from the 8.8 or you making ladder bars? I'm building ladder bars and would like to see what you got going if your doing them.

Looking great! I redid my "light" setup too. It was intermittent. Mine acually connects up by the battery now and it all sealed down by the the diff.

Started putting the Rugged Ridge steering conversion on tonight. Everything went together great but I've got to shorten my pitman arm or one of the tie rod ends about a 1/4 inch. The arm needs to be just a little shorter to get my steering wheel straight. A crooked steering wheel really gets on my nerves....

Not much to look at tonight.........




Buttoned up the axles.......




Got my steering wheel straight now, however I'm a little concerned with the clearance here. Not gonna worry about it till I get it on the ground and then test it out..........




Then I put on my new extended brake hoses........

Just went out and looked at mine. I'd just get some 3/8-24 bolts, locks and nuts. Put a little lock-tite on and you'll be fine.

Got the brakes, shocks and tires on. Set it on the ground to check it out. Still have to align front end, tighten leafs and do something to get more clearance on the brake lines. Gonna run these 31's for a few weeks cause I spent my tire and wheel fund.... It's prolly gonna look a little goofy but at least I can put some miles on it. Should have it on the road by mid next week......
