What to do? This things still on stands. I have been eyeballing an 8.8 with 4.11's for the rear. I'm unsure what I want to do with the front. It will need ball joints, control arm mounts, 4.11 gears installed. I can't decide of I should build another one on the bench and swap this one out, or fix the one that's in it.

Opinions? Should I just go long arm and a 44 9" combo? Just fix the front and replace the d35? Sell it?

Curb already has 44/9" so you need to out do him. 1 tons or Rockwells.

I don't think I will ever need ton's under this piece of Jeep. I was talking with Rich about replacement mounts and forgot the company he recommended. Any good ideas on fixering / beefing my axle mounts? The power that is Google has let me down in searches for new mounts. Also looking for cheaper master d30 bearing kits. Last I priced they're near $150

Is it destroyed beyond cobble? Seems like if a link mount is broke you could just scab something together to get you by.

Go back a page and look at pics. There basically just bent to shit. I've considered beating them straight and plating them.

Bought some beefier replacements from cascade 4wd in GR a few years ago, he had them on the shelf. Customer brought in his jeep after his son "borrowed" it for a weekend and the mounts were completely jacked.

Going by Summit's price along with everyone else, $60 seems the norm. I have a set of new TJ mounts which the aftermarket mock with the adjustable caster in the mount. Let me know if mine are of interest.
