|Zombiekiller||Just upsetting. Trying to source another one but that one was just so perfect.|

|GoldenSahara00||Lame. Sorry man.|
|02-17-2014 10:47 AM|
|Zombiekiller||So the guy with the axle bailed out on me when I started asking for to much info about the axle. probably something wrong with it. back to the drawing boards.|
|02-11-2014 02:40 PM|
|Zombiekiller||Yeah, I was back in forth with selling it, engine swap, or just regear. found this axle and decided to just go with the regear. also on my list of things to do is install a small BL 1-1.25" maximum, and maybe go to 35s. not sure yet though. and I want to build an overhead CB mount. that should be fairly straight forward.|
|02-11-2014 02:25 PM|
|GoldenSahara00||Awesome Chris. You got a good deal.|
|02-11-2014 02:21 PM|
|Zombiekiller||Heard back today! Moving forward with that, I'll be getting it In March. Can't remember if I said it had a spool or not, but it does, so that will have to go. I'm told I can just swap in spider gears from another 8.8 though so I am just just going to do that.|
|02-10-2014 08:56 PM|
|Zombiekiller||Waiting on a response from the guy with the 8.8. once I hear back from him in confirmation my dad is going to pick up the axle, and I am going to order my front Ring and Pinion. Next I am going to order the adapter flange, and then the 8.8 shock mounts, and spring mounts. my goal is to have it all back by the time I get home from college so I can jump right into it and get it all in within the first 2 weeks|
|02-10-2014 12:05 AM|
|Zombiekiller||If I find a d44 with 4.88s already for a decent price I would consider it, but I don't see that happening so for now I will just regear to 4.88s most likely|
|02-09-2014 11:45 PM|
|GoldenSahara00||I knew you'd keep it I say front axle swap while you're at it.|

So I was planning on selling my Jeep in order to have a more capable ride to get to college, but I decided against it and instead I am just going to make mine better for highway driving. AKA regear! I found an 8.8 Trussed with a spool and 4.88s already installed for $250. While the spool will have to go, for that price you can't buy a trussed 8.8 for that price, much less one that is re-geared so I am going to take that route. So an 8.8 install is in my near future, and then a front regear to 4.88s. for the spool I will probably just go take spider gears out of an 8.8 in a junk yard and just use those.
other projects on the list are to reinforce my tire carrier, put a latch on instead of the pins, and put a better hinge on.
I am at college right now, but I am still going to start gathering the pieces for this summer!

|Zombiekiller||the 50" is B-R-I-G-H-T!|
|11-10-2013 04:09 PM|
A bit late on this...
here is how she sits.
i am looking at selling this one to get a Rubicon, but we will see if i can manage to part!
|07-26-2013 03:16 PM|
|Zombiekiller||new updates, ill get pics soon, i forget if i said it or not but i put rock lights under it, and i installed the HIDs, they are bright! and the Halos are awesome. i also got my single row bar from Illuminationleds.com and mounted that on a homemade mount and its bright! im going wheeling tonight to play with all my new toys, when i get back ill upload pics of all the lights! still 8.8 hunting but im not having much luck at all|

|JeePersCreePit||Wow, great build thread. Looks like you have been through A LOT with her|
|06-29-2013 12:03 PM|
|wranglerbrother||nice looking build man! You have done some awesome stuff I must say! Keep it up!|
|06-29-2013 09:39 AM|
|Zombiekiller||That's what I'm looking at... Also maybe a 350... Idk yet we will see! I also put my HID headlights in, I can't remember if I said that but I'll take pics and post them later tonight, and I'm putting my 50" on later|
|06-28-2013 01:22 AM|
|Squeeze||What are you planning on swapping in? *coughdieselcough*|
|06-27-2013 10:01 PM|
|Zombiekiller||New plan: I'm keeping my jeep and doing an engine swap. This should get exciting... Also my HIDs are in and I think one of my sensors is messed up|
|06-22-2013 04:08 PM|
|Zombiekiller||my terrible rational: inspite of the fact that im trying to sell it i already ordered the new lights so im going to go ahead and install them when they get here! if i do sell it though i plan to take the 50" off|
|06-21-2013 04:38 PM|
|Zombiekiller||if i dont sell this one soon and end up keeping it ill let you guys know!|
|06-21-2013 04:30 PM|
That's a shame. Well, you have the practice, knowledge and memory though. And i am sure this is a thread to stand the time.
Let us know when you have a new project: you keep them up really well.
|06-21-2013 04:25 PM|
|Zombiekiller||unfortunatelly i am in the process of trying to sell it, parents want to get me a new jeep for college. im looking at a silver rubi|
|06-21-2013 03:50 PM|
I have to say, your jeep is beautiful. The thread is inspiring and captivating.
Nice work building it up, as you have. I envy the tools, shops, and deals you can find.
Definitely will be keeping up with this thread.

|06-13-2013 10:42 PM|

|06-13-2013 02:13 AM|
sorry forgot to update, We wired rock lights from Illumination LEDs up underneath, i will get a pic of those soon. long story short they look awesome! also i finally painted and installed my rock rails!
also tonight i pulled the trigger and ordered a 50" light bar, flush mount LED tail lights, and HIDs with new casings and Halos. still 8.8 hunting, not having much luck though...
|06-12-2013 05:02 AM|
