iwaxmyjimmy And now I've got the parts for the skid, just need time to fab it. And in January I'm doing true high steer with heims. Should come out pretty good. Put my 35s on and noticed a slight wobble so my factory JK steering has taken a beating.

iwaxmyjimmy After today's run with Steve, I'm buying bushings to make a oil pan/trans skid. Hopefully I can get around to building it the first week in December. Got a small little debt in mine today after my tires slipped off a rock.

Im not sure what my next axles gonna be yet but id definetly like to get rid of my wannabe 44s one day. Im thinking no bigger then 37" on my TJ. Btw, why have i never seen this willys wagon?

On a side note im considering more and more an AW4 swap.. im tired of rowing gears especially after doing it all week in traffic. Lol. Only thing is the cost. I might start buying bits and parts though. I do have that 50% off B&M certificate but i dont think they have any AW4 stuff, maybe ill get a cooler.

Plus they are smaller in diameter so they need less room...
I'm in the process of linking the back of my Yj and installing a built 9" rear axle and these are the last of the hard parts needed for the build....all that is needed now is time....come on wishbone...lol
I'm totally stoked and wanted to share.
