Awesome stuff man. I love watching the progression of your Jeep. I'm trying to find someone near me to fab a bumper just like you did for yourself.

I have a 35 now... and all depends on how to treat it... sure... I agree.. not the greatest of choices... but upgrading it will come another time.

The thing is here, I need 4.56's... and why would I pass up the opportunity to get BOTH MATCHING front and rear axles only cost me $150? You can't buy just the gears for that little.

Time is not wasted in my book... chalk it up and call it increasing your knowledge and experience.

This way I have saved a ton of money to do other stuff and gets me where I want/need to be gearing-wise and build-wise. Money well spent IMHO.

Open, locked, TrueTracked????

Screaming price!!!!!

Got my D30/D35 combo with 4.56 TT in front and Det locked rear for $1000. Both complete drum to drum and Caliper/rotor to Caliper/rotor. I swapped drums to disc in rear before my swap over though.

LSD/open.... I have to use my backing plates and axles on the 35... I will be using my Clutch pak sides and spiders in the carrier so I know everything is good.

TJDave 03-29-2012 01:24 PM

Nice! I did the same thing. I bought a part every pay check or so. I collected a pile of parts that grew in the garage for almost 10 months until I had everything I needed to tear into it.

It was great to finally get to install everything.:thumb:

88black5liter 03-29-2012 01:59 PM

Looks like fun fellow Nevadan....I wish we were closer I would give you a hand :wavey:

TnDz TJ 03-29-2012 05:58 PM

yeah... just a little down the road from me.. lol!!!

My SYE got here today... tearing out the t-case tonight! WOOHOOO!

Drive shaft MAY be here tomorrow.. I'm hopeful, but I doubt it.... most likely Monday....

Gate53 03-29-2012 06:02 PM

Wish you were closer I'd love to help. Only thing I'd add would be an Aussie locker in the 30.

Wow how did you end up getting such a good deal on the 30/35s?!?!? But man does that look like fun!

The guys was upgrading to 8.8/44.. plus the 35 needs clutch pak, side gears, spiders, backing plates and shafts ( which I will be using off my 35 once I pull it)

Gears we PERFECT.... this was the only reason for the purchase.
