Jeep is in the shop, Axle swap under way!
 
Well I dropped her off this morning. It was very sad to leave her. I'm excited, but now the true test of waiting begins. Sigh... Next Tuesday won't come soon enough!
Review of what's being done by Chris and the guys at The Edge Automotive!

Regear to 4.88, Installation of a Dynatrac ProRock 44 Front, Ox Electronic Actuated Lockers Front and Rear, Chromoly Shafts Front and Rear, Installation of Rigid Duallys and Winch Light bar. Pictures to come soon! The Spartan is getting ready for war! haha :thumb:

Thanks Jason! Now next time you laugh at me about locking on Spring Creek I will actually be able to do it! :rofl:

I did bud! :thumb: loose steering components were leading to dw overall, torqued everything. Still had a bit of shimmy so isolated that to tires after 3 attempts to get tires balanced. :rofl:

You'll really like your Ox's. I've got front and rear, although I've got the standard (lever) cable-actuated setup using a custom recessed bracket in the floor. You may need to adjust the cables slightly. I also have Ox's drive-away locks that can be threaded directly into the diffs should a cable issue occur.

Ya we will see how it turn out. They are heavy suckers. I got one drive away lock. If bothers fail I have bigger issues. Haha

Well she's home. Pics to follow soon. This break in period for the gears sucks

Justin04Lj 05-01-2013 11:08 AM

Can't wait to see it. Its all worth it in the end I'm sure.

Sinister6 05-01-2013 11:10 AM

Very nice! How they feel?

chrisfp88 05-01-2013 11:47 AM

They feel good. I was expecting a little more but I guess its just hard for me to remember before. She is shifting much quicker. I'm also not giving it a ton of power. I'm letting it break in slow. So I think I'll feel it more after the break in. Computer mileage calc went up by 5 and while its not the most accurate its cool. Lol.
