Work great, have a few minor bugs to work out, adjust some bumpstops a bit etc. Having the driveshafts up so hi is great for rock crawling.

Again I would not rule it out, just not a big fan of them. I keep hearing the road ride is great and off road is a bit better, but mine gets trailed and my drives consist of sunday's with the top down. So who knows what will happen with Jeep number 7.

I did think about the long arm upgrade, but decided to wait and see how this did, as the long arms are a point of no return when you hack the frame mounts away. Plus I like the short arms vs the longer ones that hang down and seem to get hung up on rocks etc. But time will tell, if I don't like how it works I will rethink the long arm.

Yeap, thought about doing the long arm, but figured I see how it does with the short arms as I had those already.

So not really that much but they kept it on site incase the axle guys had questions on measurements etc. Should be nice when i get it back...

deverhart hehe sounds like me, I am the type of person that will go to a parts store looking for a valve stem and somehow end up with a new vehicle out of the deal :-)

Jeep Build up

Well, I am getting closer to getting my Jeep back on the trails, its been sitting at the shop waiting for some upgrades to arrive for a while now, end of Jan. Thus I thought I would share some pic's of the process. Enjoy.

1st day home: Last year June as I recall:


Just after Lift kit was put on


Current location in shop getting some upgrades: Look at that flex.


This one shows the new oil pan and new starter among other things.
