|BuzzinHornets||Today I replaced the cooling system. Radiator, water pump, thermostat, thermostat housing, temp sensor, hoses, belt and idler pully. Fingers crossed I have no leaks and I don't have to mess with it again for quite some time!|

The D30 U-joints kicked my ass. They were so badly stuck and rusted that the ears of the shafts ended up getting bent. The bends are so minor that I cannot see them, but the caps will NOT line up right on two of them (right inner, left outer). I have now destroyed two Spicer 5-760X U-joints trying to get them in on one side each time. Three caps seat perfectly on each side, but one bore has been bent on each axle shaft combo and the caps keep shattering. (No, no bearings fell over. The shaft ears are actually bent according to my micrometer and calipers, but I cannot *see* the bend.)
So I just bought a set of alloys off Amazon. I hope they are good. I am deficient in my knowledge of axle shafts. I know I want to beef up my D 30, but the cost had me putting that off, but the OEM Jeep parts are even more expensive! I'll be damned if I drop that sort of coin on parts with a known failure rate like the stock shafts have! So I got this kit:
It comes with China-made U-joints that I do not trust. I trust the shafts based on what I have read here, but not those U-joints. So I added in a pair of Spicer 5-760X joints. And I fully expect to have them press in PERFECTLY for that price!
Anyone here have this kit or at least the Alloy USA 27 spline shafts? Please tell me I didn't just buy a big box of crap...

I let my TJ make a friend today.
And I fixed my plate/tire carrier interference issue. Pulled the plate holder off and drilled 4 holes in my plate. Added a little double sided tape to the back and stuck/bolted it on..

I installed my new Smittybilt (I know I know but the price was damn good) Rocker Guard with step. After looking at them sitting next to my faded gray fender flares I just had to rattle can bedliner them and am extremely happy with the out come.
New Rocker Guards old gray flares
New Rocker Guards with newly repainted Flares
I also installed a new stereo deck, Pioneer MVH-X360BT, along with new Kicker dash and sound bar speakers. Hands down the best mod ive done for under $180.00. Love the sounds, I can actually hear them now and my android phone will connect thru Bluetooth/USB/front jack. No CD player on the new deck but don't need one since my phone carries all the tunes I can handle.
Sorry about the pics. Not sure whats gone wrong with photobucket but cant get it to show anything but small or grainy pics.
P.S. Love the Poison Spyder hood! Looks great and you do nice work
