Yeah? Ron and I will look at it Saturday. The only munching that's going to be going on with my rig is the munching of boulders under my tires..

Might have to pull the springs and fully flex it out and make sure the tires don't rub on the fenderwell lips. Only takes a couple of minutes with a lift like he has.

Well a good deal is only a good deal if you actually get the part in your hand and said part gets on your jeep.

Sounds like you might have to consider a D44 by G2 or 8.8 by East Coast Gears or some other option.

Well what has been the hold up regearing is relatively simple and shouldn't take all that long.

Well the last I heard is that the shop owner discovered his workers welded the brackets on incorrectly so they all had to be cut off and it had to be re-welded.

Agreed. But some places like EastCoastGears must have jigs set up or something because them and custom build the axle to your specs and send it to you. I don't know if this place has jigs or not.

Jeep's in the shop and I'm in a rental car on him. Nice guy, just really busy and needed to redo stuff to make it right. Getting my 8.8 with 4.88s and an ARB...so no build pics on this one, but when the Metalcloaks get here, we'll post up some awesome install pics on those.

Metalcloaks should be going on Sept 6th weekend..God Willing.
