Hoping to get the 35's on sunday. also picking up a pair of 1 3/4" spacers to help level out the front. it took quite a dive after adding the beef of a bumper.

my thought is spacers in the front and then take the front iso's and put em in the rear if it dosnt sit level-ish.

also hoping to have a 8.8 in before december 3rd. twisted trails is having there toys for tots!

Figured id update since i havent in a while.

Jeep's still going strong for the most part. CV shafts are getting worse but meh. I figured they'd need replaced eventually. I end up pulling the 33's off and putting on sum winter friendly 31's. Id really like to find sum mt 33's or 31's before spring hit's. Also the bumper's are coming off for sand blasting and powder coating soon.

Dropped it off for boatside's today so hoping to have it back within a week or two.







also the rock slider's that were on it are up for sale so sumone buy them! lol

Update.

Took it to dogparty on bald 31's and yet it still got around great. Now she's sporting 31x13.5 swamper sx's and i love them. Also picked an xj up earlyer this week for the gf.

Then this happen today. She hit a drift and it just stucked her in. Her and the jeep are both fine. Only damage was the front ender's a bit smashed.






Im hoping to swap in an 8.8 soon. along with 6" coils and 33's. It's a long term goal lol

Lil update.

Still rockin it the way it sits. Took it to dogparty 2 and my only regret was not pulling the rear swaybar or disconnecting the front. Flex is limited horribly by them.





Just been having fun with it lately while she's been holding togther.










Then I got an audio upgrade for my birthday. GF bough me a ppi500/1d and 2 pioneer 10's. I made the box out of exterior grade bc 5ply plywood. 2.75^3@28hz. Also recieved Silver Star headlight's and i love them.






And im finally sick of my d35. It's missing a few teeth on the ring gear and howling like a mofo. So i gotten lucky, a family friend was scraping a 5.2 zj so i scored the axle's. lp30/d44a combo with 3.73 gear's.



Over Easter weekend me and my dad are putting the axle's in. Im having a matching rear diff cover made for the 44a and then also going to have the spider's welded. Id buy an aussie but bang for buck welding is the way to go. I dont plan on going bigger then 33's any way. Also flipping the tierod on the v8 steering when we put it in. It will be nice to have an axle i can trust! plus the little bit lower gearing will help a bit.

Over all it's coming along.
