I just sold my cj7 but they have a special place in my heart :) Nice ride. If i could make a suggestion I'd do very little to it right now and just enjoy it. Personally if the lockers are functional I'd leave them alone. Besides I'm not a huge fan of air lockers I wouldn't spend a bunch of $ on the stock axles. I had to bump up to chromoly one piece rears and still broke a shaft which took out a thousand dollar locker. In retrospect I'd have been better off going full width or even putting 44's in. My $.02. Oh, and twin stick that 300 and it'll be much more friendly IMO. Also put a steering box brace as they are an inherent weak point and it's 20min to put one in now vs. re-creating that portion of the frame when it rips through and/or breaks the stock box. Good luck and have fun!
