WatchThis! This is how things will probably stay for a while. Time to just spend the time and money on enjoying the jeep and camping as much as possible.

WatchThis! My set up.

WatchThis! Got everything loaded up for a weekend of camping and wheeling. Trying out a new setup this time. Going to try a bed mounted tent on the tow pig.

ljvsnyder Nice Ram, now lets see some pictures of the two together. I miss my Ram, trying to talk the wife into getting a new 2500 for her daily driver.

Cummins or Hemi?

MyRed88 Man that your jeep is nice. I want an LJ to build up like yours. subbing to this build for sure.
03-28-2014 12:02 AM
Monster93 Nice trailer! And that's a good price!!
03-27-2014 11:57 PM
WatchThis! Well not exactly a mod to the jeep but one for it and my other truck. I bought a new 20' 12'000lb trailer and put 2 4' boxes on the front of it and added a few D-rings to the deck. 4000$ well spent.
12-06-2013 10:44 PM
WatchThis! As of now I have 35 spline RCV shafts and an ARB in the front along with the stock locker (don't have a clue how the damned thing is still alive) with crome molly shafts in the rear both are the stock housings.

xxxxxxxxxxxtklein42 WatchThis,


I read through the thread again because i couldnt remember if you were running stock 44's or not.

Just curious if your drivetrain is holding up. I just picked up a 14bolt for the rear. May as well for $200

Par4bmw Super nice setup. Enjoy.

Exactly. There is a reason I almost never drink and wheel. I drive like an idiot sober so just imagine what it is like when I have been drinking.

breed56 Well, I think it looks great, hell of a lot of work, good job! I have been through the Rubicon 17 times and found for me sobriety really helps in the rocks. I put a fire cracker Muffler for $25.00 (Off Craig's list) and the six banger sounds great. Your Jeep looks great, keep up the good work....
Thanks for keeping us advised of the project, it's been really cool watching the work and the Jeep and hell, life's short and it's only money.

WatchThis! It was the stock unit. I riged up the compressor last year knowing I would be having to upgrade to ARBs sooner or later.
05-29-2013 11:39 PM
jagerhelix Yea, understood. What an f'd up chain of events lol. As they say... Broken parts = better parts.
What locker was up front? I thought you had an arb up there already. Was it the stock rubi locker?
05-29-2013 10:47 PM
WatchThis! I got in a huge bind and tried letting out on the clutch to see if one of the tires would slip...... they didn't. The locker started acting up right after that. Well after sitting around the camp fire for a few hours we took a ride and ended up at a water fall. The locker was already acting up and staing locked up so I got that don't give a damn attitude.

I couldn't even get up on the waterfall by crawling so after a few trys I started launching in 6'th and had to bounce the front end to get it up on the ledge (It was raining). Well on the 4th or 5th try I bounced hard driver and the tires were still spinning when they slid backwards wedging in between a tree and small ledge. Well believe it or not the locker decided to let go at that very moment.

Sure I could have saved the R&P if I would have parked it as soon as the locker started acting up, but in my mind if I am fixing to spend two grand upgrading to an ARB then what's another 200 bucks for a new R&P. Besides I didn't haul it 8 hours to park it on the trailer the first day just because the front end decided to take the day off.
05-29-2013 10:19 PM
jagerhelix Awesome man. Wish you had a video blowing out that R&P. what exactly caused it? Those 35 spline shafts will be nice. Wishing I would have done a little more research and went that way in my rear in the first place.
05-29-2013 10:15 PM
WatchThis! ARB, R&P, and new 35 spline RCV inner shafts installed. Just in time for a 600 mile road trip starting tomorow. Kinda funny since I broke both gear sets in on a road trip last time.
05-09-2013 12:24 PM
WatchThis! Well I blew the front locker and R&P out being a dumb ass over the weekend. I have an ARB new R&P and new 35 spline inners for my RCVs on the way.

AnimalJK Nice build thread! I'm just about to pull the trigger on the Evo Enforcer lift with some Kings.

I think I saw you on University Tues. evening.

Anyway glad to see you got your rig back together after KOH. There were alot of the guys from WAYALIFE at KOH this year. I would have loved to be there.

lee indy im still learning welding steel. so i havent even ventured into welding aluminum. ive got a buddy that can do it tho so im not too worried. its good to have friends with skills.

i have the evo skids under mine but would like to sell them i have my eye on a different kit
04-25-2013 09:44 AM
WatchThis! That's one thing that I never learned. Never even tried it. I don't even have a clue how much different it is from welding steel.
04-25-2013 09:30 AM
lee indy damn. can you weld aluminum?

do you think the damage would have been better or worse with the steel skids? any shots of the damage they took?
I really don't think steel skids would have held up much better since it took such a hard blow.

I only snaped one pic and it wasn't a very good one. It does give an idea of what the rest of the system looks like though.
