mike spent half of a day on the axles. put all new brakes and rotors front and new disc setup on rear. new seals and bearing throughout the front and rear. took alot of trips to the chassie shop to get the right steering setup. 7/8 heims misaligment joints. all the little stuff. built a new trac bar mount and not real happy with it. think we will make another one.we need to put ring and pinion in his yet (5.38),but we drove it around with the 4.10 and stock tires...drives nice no bump steer and no driveline vibration.

these are both gay, you need to find something better to do with your time that you're good at








but seriously they look good. I used small superflex joints on my uppers and man was that a mistake, I've blown those things apart to many times now. I'm slowly switching them over to rod ends. Wish I would've gone with all large diameter arms and currire johny joints, those things are nice IMO. I probably should just change all my uppers to the large diameter with the JJ but I'm a cheap ass ....even though I'll just be paying more in the long run. If I were you I'd replace them now with something stronger.

what are you runnign for gears/lockers?

mike will be doing more regular stuff with his. i am sure he will put some better joints in.mine is for beating on only, so i am the stupid one and will try anything,it is a 03 w 7000 miles on it and been on it's side 4 times. i built new arms for mine 2.5 dom with 2.5 currie joints. those joints were a bitch to get together but will be worth the time. running 5.38, welded rear, detroit front.

Looking good. Nice to see some more people beating on perfectley good jeeps. I rolled mine all the way over and then had to drag it down the hill to flip it back over on my second time out on the 1 ton build. Just stretched it in the front and went to four link and it is so much better. I am at 105" now. This is perfect for me.
