Money shot!

Great build, can't wait to see more action shots.

On the brakes, are you using new/different calipers than stock? Could be a mismatch between master cylinder bore size and the calipers. Rubber or braided stainless lines?

Yea, theyre half ton brakes, i need to get a slightly larger MC. Although they have been getting etter, still a ****ty pedal feel, but i can lock up all 4 on dry pavement.

Nahh, im gonna keep the ax15.

Keep in mind you also had 3.07s and 35s, im sure your crawl ratio sucked, right now mines about 70:1 but i want atleast 100:1, ive been looking into doublers, flipped dana 300s, etc.

there ya go and yeah im sure that was it too but i also wasnt a fan of juggling the clutch while trying to watch where my tire went/rear end was going/etc. just one more thing to throw in the mess haha. but yeah i still cant believe i managed 35s on 3.07s. 33s and 3.55s is bad enough now in the zj ahaha

How could someone hate an ax15? I love the trans, hate the spool. It always barks the tires around turns, and in the rain, i drift all over the place.

Im going to put in spider gears in the rear for the time being, and then get aussie lockers front and rear.
