Things to do before Friday in no particular order:

1. Lengthen driveshafts
2. Button up steering hoses and cooler / Fill with fluid
3. Trim Rear fenders
4. Plumb brake lines (fittings should be here today)
5. Assemble rear axle (waiting on breather and drive flanges, should be here tmr)
6. Make engine skid plate
7. Mount rock sliders
8. Mount and wire fog lights
9. Mount and wire rock lights
10. Fill all fluids (Steering, brakes and axles)

Tires are back on to figure out trimming.



Rear calipers mounted. K10 Caliper and pads, rear superduty rotor and superduty wheel bearing are used on all 4 corners.

Fog lights are not important. Rock lights are.

They are acutally already wired, just need to drill a hole and mount them. But I agree.

Yes. Working with a company on getting a tune. Won't happen for this trip though.

Can this whole bearing thing be explained please? A front unit bearing goes in that pocket do-ma-hickey that was welded on the ends of the rear housing?

Yep, trail gear makes the housing with unit bearing pockets that fit 99-04 super duty unit bearings. Others make cups for 05+ unit bearings.

Their version of a 99-04 Super Duty unit bearing made to 6x5.5:

I wonder if they would make a 5x5.5. If they did, would I be able to convert my 9” to a full float?

Currie does. https://www.currieenterprises.com/CE-8000JK

Or you can have the factory 99-04 hubs turned down and re drilled like I did.

Hmmmm. Something to think about for sure. I hate having to pull apart my complete rear axle to get my center section out.

I am pulling 5 x 5.5 rotors, calipers and unit bearings off a jk with a currie rockjock d60 SD outer front and 14 bolt full float rear if any of that would work and save you some coin?

We had an awesome time at KOH. Got the Roxor "finished" enough to drag it across the country with zero testing.

Other than a few issues, it did great and moved our butts around the desert all week.

Issues:

- Front axle is leaking diff fluid from the passenger. Must have damaged the cheap summit seal when installing the shafts.

- All four tires rub really bad. It was expected though, since I ran out of time for bump stops. Ended up trimming the rear fenders a little more on the lake bed.

- Steering is super slow at low rpm. Going to look into swapping the pulley or the whole pump.

- Mile marker hub on the pass. side kept unlocking for some reason. Will upgrade to chromo outters and flanges.

- Brakes are super soft. Have to look into a booster upgrade.

Still need to finish up the rock sliders and rear corner armor.

Looking into a 1" body lift to allow me to raise the trans and tcase to help with building a flatish belly skid. Also need to get beadlocks as we burped all the air out of one tire on the trail.
