The whole front end is basically finished, the only things left are to bleed the brakes, install my hubs, which should be here in about an hour, fill the axle with fluid and put my HD dif cover on.

For the whole jeep to be done, i need to install my rear pads, wheel cylinders and spring kits, bleed the brakes, fluid, do my rim stiffeners, and install my wheel spacers in the rear.

I did a driveway allignment with a tape measure, i set the toe in at about 1/8 inch, the caster is about 4 degrees, the trackbar was eyeballed straight. Im going to have it done professionally once its on its wheels again.

Enough talk, heres a couple pics.









My jeeps a porn star:

In that pic, the brakeline curls around as well, theres actually plenty of slack.

Its driveable! The brakes are spongy as hell, and all the airs out of the system, as well as the rear brakes are adusted properly, and it needs an allignment, especially more caster.

Any clues as to why the brakes are spongy?

bad booster or vacuum lines on the booster, or a failing master cyl are my only gueses. re check for leaks. and re bleed.

i take it you really like the MTR/Ks? i was gonna get some but went with duratracs. im doing a 44a swap and re-gearing my zj to 4.56s and doing a 4.5" lift with long arms and IRO OTK and bilstiens but after seeing jeeps with similar setups, i may eventually go with 35s and i love my duratracs dont get me wrong, but by then im hoping to make it more of a wheeler and need something a little more dedicated.
