Looking good! I am in love with those wheels, but not the price. Definitely not in the budget for my rebuild
I like them a lot. Quality seems better than other wheels I've messed with. We will see how they hold up.

VERY nice!
Thanks!

Bad ass! Looks like it may get a little cold for another UP snow run🤔
I swear I won’t have a 10bolt next time😆
I still have my old mojave heater sitting on the shelf. I need to figure out where to fit it in for some cold weather wheeling.

I felt bad for you D44/10-bolt guys for having to replace shafts so often that trip. It was cold to lay on the ground. I wasn't happy having to take apart my frozen hub 5' off the road.

I've been looking hard at these Goatbuilt kits. IDK which one is right for me though.

I'm 6'5 and don't plan to compete in anything lol. I just can easily make the case it makes more sense to start there than with a rusty Jeep frame.

I enjoyed reading the whole build thread, I hope you're still working on it.

I'm 6'1" and fit OK. If I were to do another, I would do pass drop transfer case and drop the driver's seat lower to get more head room. I can't get my seat lower without sitting on the t-case.

I would expect the LJ kit to be larger than the JHF kit since it's based on TJ/LJ dimensions.

I haven't spent much time in the shop in the past few months. Maybe 2 days poking at stuff. Busy with family at the moment. Had a few hours last week but it 90+ degrees and frankly I didn't care to go sweat it out.

And no one can blame you for that.

I'm 6'2" and fit in AJ's JHF great (he's same height), lots of extra headroom.

I just started another JHF, hope to have it done by New Years. Ditching all the front tubing, and adding doors among a bunch of other things. I feel your pain on the heat, I installed AC in the shop a month ago and its incredible. Didn't want to repeat last Summer.
