I had good pedal feel and I could lock up the fronts, i think the back could use some work still with either a larger master or a residual pressure valve.

Needs more gearing the jeep is alot slower out of the corners then it used to be.

quick update now its the 4618 and we are planning on racing the Ultra4 series from here on out in the 4600 class


we are racing KOH in three weeks in this grocery getter.


new third members are ordered since i broke the stock thirds monkeying around. going with yukon race case with 5/8ths stud girdles, yukon grizzly locker and reusing the gears

changing the d shafts over to 1350 at the axle ends with billet steel yokes, we have had problems breaking the rear joint. also ordered pinion guards.

new intercom and radio stuff coming from (sigh) rugged radios. didnt have the coin to get PCI stuff.

New Dynomax exhaust

Branik Motorsports is machining us up spare front wheel bearings.

other the some odds and ends is basically just a full race prep to get it ready for KOH. I will get some pics tonight.

You guys are coming here to load up? Why should I let you load up in the warmth? What's in it for me?

Do you have an overhead crane near the dock that we could load a rolling chassis with? If yes, then we may need to talk...

done yet? are you riding out on the trailer wrenching? it's an open trailer, so it would be chilly.
