Thanks Bob! It's coming along for sure. Realistically, I think it's ready for 37's. And like I said before just got to decide what long arm kit to go with...

Sinister6 Thanks for the compliments. The back of the Morion-Teks have hooks the just need to be loosened to get into the back. I guess it's a trade off...access that's too easy means easy for anyone to get into the back, overall, I'm satisfied with the straps.

TJZ Why does nobody make a net with access ! Those look great, but again. No rear or side access. It is now my mission to make the perfect cargo nets. I hate my Smittybilt and have no interest in nets that don't allow access. Great freakin dogs though, dude ! Nice rig as well !
07-05-2014 09:07 PM
Sinister6 Thanks! Siberian Huskies... Kumo (red) Hercules (duh) love riding!
07-05-2014 08:21 PM
GSXRMAN14 ^Beautiful dogs!!! Are those Huskies or Alaskan Malamutes?

Boys love the cargo net!

Sinister6 Got the rest of the Motion-Tek straps installed. Fit well, look great! Only concern is no snap or easy open for the back.
07-03-2014 11:32 AM
Sinister6 WOW! New Ball Joints made a HUGE difference! Got Jeep up to 70+ front end is smooth!

Nice job! I hope to be able to run 37's in the future.

But I came to your rescue! I may not have been much of a help since I'm a beginner at all of this mechanical stuff, but at least I could cheer you on thanks for being a good teacher....

It may help a little, but the Barnett is a stock plate with a reinforced lip welded on to it. So it's designed to not interfere with stock suspension, my thinking is since it have the Currie steering which is designed to go around aftermarket discovers I should have absolutely no issues with the Barnett.

honestly I do not know but it's basically a stock cover with the reinforced bottom... So very low-profile.

Was it worth pulling out the axle?
I used the two-sided tape that's on them already. I cleaned the area with acetone a couple of times and stuck them on. I also use self tapping screws in areas where the tape wasn't usable.

StarBrite Wow! Nice work, sir!

Mike just got those LEDs you have for your undercarriage lighting. Nice to see what they will look like!

Brit Nick Looks super strong. Nice work. You have any trouble with your tie rod/track bar hitting the solid diff cover ?

I need to get my stuff together and come down to CO and wheel with u guys.

Sinister6 Well, the build continues, this round of mods focus on re-enforcing the front axle. I went with Artec Truss and Gussets and installed Synergy Ball Joints too! With these upgrades and the RCV axles I'm ready to realistically jump up to 37's. Pics below, let me know what y'all think. Still putting everything back together. Gotta thank Tony for the help, much appreciated bud!

I noticed the same trend with AutoZone. Ridiculously high prices on ball joints.
