Sorry for the delayed reply, looks like your ready to replace your steering box. I did this also with some other stuff:

Finally was able to get a durango box and put it in over my spring break. Pretty happy with the upgrade. The install went pretty well and now my steering is much easier and take less turns to go lock to lock. Still have play in the steering though. Trac bar bushing is shot.

Durango box on the left xj on the right




JCR steering box brace. I also ended up also have to use a few washers to space the box a little more because the durango housing is a little bigger than the xj one.

Havnt really updated this in a while so here is a few pics of some things ive done lately.

This kept happening....



So I made up a shackle stop



Then ordered some custom Total Metal Innovations DIY bead locks and am in the process right now of finishing that project up

Here is the Inner Ring welded to the wheel and ground down


Before Grinding


Finished and primed 2 today


I also have a set of brand new 36x13.50s that ill be wrapping these locks in


The Bead Lock Project has been a tough one to tackle. It has taken much longer than I thought but I cant wait til they are finished!!

My tb bushing on the frame side was also shot so ordered this from ballistics to solve that issue


3/4 heim

Ill get some pics up when the beadlocks are finished.

Got some work done over the summer on the jeep so here is a few pics.

760s in the d30. Didn't feel like modding them to fit full circle clips so just tacked the caps in to.


Pulled the axle to get rid of these terrible rocky road high steer brackets. The turdy 30 is getting some steering and also a few extra little things because I was bored while waiting on the steering to ship from ballistics.




No more RR brackets. Love a plasma


Before


After


Got a little bored again


Had a set of JKS mini skids for a while and finally decided it was time to get them on along with some extras.


Boxed in the buckets where the brackets were cut off and added some custom skids connecting the buckets to the CA skids.






Driver side not finished because I ran out of gas before I left for school.



More to come soon. steering should be here this week so I can get it finished up.
