The first round of mods is basically done.
 
After a couple of weekends of hard work by myself and others, this is the payoff:

On the front axle, we swapped out from 3.21 gears to 4.56, put in an Eaton E-Locker, swapped over to chrome molly axle shafts, and welded on an Artec axle truss kit.

On the rear axle, we swapped out the same 3.21 gears to 4.56, put in an Auburn Gear ECTED limited slip/locker, and swapped chrome molly shafts.

We installed a Rubicon Express 2.5" lift kit with shocks, and put some 315/70R17 Goodyear Duratrac tires on some 17x9 Mickey Thomson Classic III wheels.

Here's what it looked like before we did all the work:

I said it's just the first round. I'm going to wheel it for a few years while I do mods to my other two Jeeps. :dance:

Oh, and if you were wondering, all 5 stock tires and wheels fit in the back with the seat removed.

I dig it, i just bought a white JK that I am looking to start modding. I really like the Polished wheels over the black that you see on so many Jeeps.

Looking good but wayyyyyy too clean!

Heck of a first round! I love the peace of mind my chromo shafts in the front bring, looking to add them to the rears as well as sleeves/gussets on both. Congrats!

mxr4ti23 03-13-2014 04:25 PM

What size were the stock wheels? I am going to pick up 5 rubi's in a couple of weeks, wonder if they'll fit like that?

Master P 03-13-2014 04:28 PM
