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 you like the ax15 with the mini spools on the road?

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.
