Joanzie's Build
 
WoooHoo!! :wavey:

After a Long wait, my Joanzie is being built! :punk:

Going from 33's to 35's (Hush Bernie!) :rofl: 4.56 gears to 4.88's, super 35 rear to 8.8, ARB locked, D30 stock front to BLING Chro Mo front axles and Warn locking hubs, droppin' a Teralo in her and throwing some Arched MetalCloak fenders on! :punk:

Got off to a late start yesterday, but got the gears done along with the axles and hubs. My new shoes went on yesterday as well :D

The T case will get done today!!

Work in progress....pics on the way...:thumb:

:doh:

Just cuz you had to wait for parts doesn't mean we should have to wait for pics. :whistling:

Along with new shoes, I went ahead and got some new brake pads..they were more than half worn, so I figured why not!

Congrats to you Lorie on all that you are getting done to your Jeep. You are definitely pushing me to get some things out of my way so I to can roll on 35's and re-gear my own Jeep. If you were fearless on the trails without all this bling, I can't wait to wheel with you after all this goes on.

Would anyone care to wager on whether she'll waits till our next scheduled run before she tests out her newly built Jeep on the rocks?

BTW in all the pics, not one are you holding a wrench or power tool. Did you do the typical female trick of telling/asking Ron to HELP you work on your Jeep and then just stand around having fun watching him do all the dirty work. Or does Ron not want you playing with his tools?!?! :rofl: :dance:

I noticed the same thing. :rofl:

I was going to say something but in Lori's defense, I have wrenched with her and I know from experience she is not afraid to grab a tool and get her hands dirty.:thumb:

So that leaves me with three words for you Lori:

Pretty

Freaking

Sweet!:thumb:

Great job Ron! If her TJ turns out anything like your YJ she is SET.

I H8RDS 08-04-2013 02:39 PM

Alright Boyzz...I was neck deep in grease yesterday! All up my fingernails!! I had a power tool in my hand yesterday! There were a couple pics taken but I didn't like them so I didn't post lol

Old T-case is out...new on e one going in! :punk::punk::punk:

Those hubs will help Joanzie cruise down the street. It actually does make a difference to disconnect the front wheels

I H8RDS 08-04-2013 04:24 PM

Yea, it's pretty cool..maybe save on gas mileage a little too :)

WOKNROX 08-04-2013 04:52 PM

While we were at it, decided to straighten my belly skid, put a weld on it and straighten out my tie rod.. I don't think there's anything Ron doesn't know how to do :)

We'll be looking for my Metalcloaks this week!!

Beef'N up Joanzie!! :thumb:

:punk:

Was awesome to see you guys! Thanks for coming out; it was a lot of fun!

T case is in and belly skid is going back on as I type. While looking at her, I noticed some brackets that came off the body, so we're going to weld those brackets back on, I'm going to spray her down..and probably call it a day.

Mission accomplished this weekend! Ron earned my homemade lasagna dinner this weekend ;):flowers:

Next weekend--8.8 Rear axle and Hopefully my Metalcloaks! :punk:
