Thanks guys, I like the monster liner, not super hard, but it holds up to regular trail abuse real good, and I dunno what shocks the PO put on it, I reused them for now because I'm going to do springs longer shocks n taller mounts when I swap axles hopefully next winter

I put a 210 hp 350 in my 87 YJ with a NV 4500 tranny.Lost the d-35 in a month and then went with a d-44 w/detroit.Kept the d-30 in front for w/lock rite for 12 years,never had a problem.Finally was convinced I needed to upgrade the d-30 to d-44 and broke d-44 axleshaft in less than a month.Went back w/chromoly shaft and have been fine since.MPG is 2-3 mpg less than the 6 but the fun factor is way worth it.My Jeep is SOA on 35's w/4.56 gears.Love the V-8yjmcb

this build is extremely similar to the one im currently working one. Im about 95% sure Im going to monsterline it. I just cut off my motor mounts and Im picking up a 5.0 to put in her, and then throwing a junkyard 8.8 and plan on doing a soa with 4 inch leafs and losing my 3in body (going to a 1 for clearance reassurance on the tranny and transfercase) Ill deff keep posted on your build!

Its pretty sweet, worth the price, they are speedhut gauges, you can customize every last bit, they are all custom made, and really nice, they are all programmable so they'll work on multiple setups, different and ohm ranges on fuel senders ect.

Really like your build here. How do you like the Monstaliner a year after? Is it holding up well and would you do it again?

I meant what are the purposes of all of the gauges? There are a lot of them, more than the stock Wrangler uses.

Prep work is key, make sure not to strip to bare metal unless removing rust, holds awesome to scuffed paint, but not so much to bare metal, use a bare metal primer recommended by magnet paints, or their chassis saver

Did the Dan Hard heater come with it? I looked on the Double D website and love the product. I also found the heater website but could not find pricing or the model displayed in Double D site
