Great point. Everyone starts somewhere, and the great thing about wheeling is that you can have a blast in any rig from mild to wild.
This attitude also helps reinforce the opinion a lot of people have about this site being snobby.

If this wasnt the "snobby" site, just think how many more 'newdodges' we would have...

My 3 yr old daughter did this about two weeks ago while going pee-pee on the big girl potty and yes, it went straight out.

I agree with your statement above, but this thread has gone waaaaaaay off track and made 10 pages in a matter of days because it was made by a lady. There is only probably 2 pages of actual Jeep build talk.

Krista, make a new thread in the Pub to redirect the .

If you don't know how to install gears don't fukc with them.
I don't know how I'm going to take any axle stuff to a shop.
I'm not gonna to ruin my jeep doesn't mean I didn't build my jeep
I'm smart on picking what to learn and what to pay for.
This is a build thread not a bash everyone's life thread.
Back to topic and if you don't want to help me or share information then butt out.
I got a jeep because of how nice everyone is and how they will lend a hand
Not to be treated like shit .
And before we go 100 % on topic
Who the fukc is new dodge?

Now, :-)

Back to topic. Thanks.

There are a few posts about newdodge... Go check them out. Although you won't like the comparison

I have to agree with you on the gears thing. There isn't much on a Jeep I don't mind messing with. But gears and transmissions are off limits for my hands. Leave that shit to the pros.

I think you will do fine here. You seem to have taken this little hazing quite well. Just remember like everything in life you will never know as much as you think you do and you an always learn something.

I've regeared my mustangs and my Jeeps. They were either pretty easy, or I got lucky.

Luckily I have a good friend that does gears and drivelines for a living. And he does all my drive shafts and gears/ lockers for payments in beer :)

Id agree on the fact there not hard. If you have a press and can understand directions you'll be good to go. Even if you don't have a press you can get a harbor freight one for a lot less than paying someone to do it.


Edit: You also need a dial indicator, bearing press plate, and micrometer. All fairly cheap and very useful in the garage for other things besides gears.

Well as my smitty battle goes on:

The weirdest thing with them is that they don't " get" my emails and
Then email back like a all " caring" why I didn't answer. So i called Rob, and told him The design of this classic bumper is NOT made for bigger tires. I may not be the smartest person alive but when a tire is bigger then a carrier ... Also because they leave the ends open of the bumper crap is just going to get in there and rust it out anywho back to the voicemail for Rob who was on lunch.. I told him that I love him as a person but not smitty bumpers and I would like a refund.. I also stated in a email if they are a better model bumper that can carrier a 35 because that tire bent my carrier forward first day it was on with the drag and stress it would just fall off sooner or later. That false advertising is going to kill someone when these big tires fall off. Well he emailed me back. I'll post the photo. You think after all the stress and two broken bumpers he could comp me a upgrade? Nah, he would rather resend me bumper after bumper. I know they out source and all that stuff ( jeep forum lecture) but just to try and keep a good word of mouth they could do something... I guess morals and civil actions are no more.

Hopefully they refund me.

Ps My iPhone won't let me post the photo
He sent me the bumper comparison on price
At the top price for the xrc and how much I'd owe to get it 300 something

You're iPhone will definitely let you post a photo. You should try using tapatalk. You can quickly upload right from your phone to the site. No need for photobucket, Flickr, etc.

Krista, does it look like this?

If it does it's the design of the carrier, not necessarily a defect, more cosmetic than anything. Mine looked that way from day 1 with my stock spare mounted to it. I don't like the design either, but you get what you pay for.

Yeah it looks like you have the outward lean also. Does yours rattle I think that lean causes stress and the rattle. Also I forgot about that forum app! I understand you get what you pay for but ironically I paid maybe 300 range more in middle for the bumper a year ago and I'm finding warn ones for same amount. Are they shit? I always thought warn was more around a LOD pricing.

Build one . Quit buying junk. It's time to learn to build stuff out of nothing.
