Well, I've got the axle ready for cleaning and paint. Raised the stock shock mounts about 1" and cleaned them up and made them more high clearance. Shaved the lip on the bottom of the diff(looks like a 35 now LOL). Really came out good all in all.

This is the biggest project Ive done all my my lonesome LOL. I got cell pics Ill post then in a bit when I get home.

Oh and my SOLID Dana 30 cover came in but GF wont let me have it til Xmas dang it...

And thats about it...

we llfound me some 33s. They're 285/75/16 BFG MTs supposed to have about 75-80% tread left got a great deal too. Picking them up Mon and will put em on Tues ander you know how they do...axles goin n Tuesday probably too...before school starts back.

What do y'all think next upgrade should be lock front with Loc Right and 4:10s or keep it in 2wd for a few and get the RK 3 link with my tax return?

Well, I got the 33s on. Not as much tread as they said but theyre still alright. And I can make money off my 32s.

Anyways, axles going in Saturday as well as the 2" spacers, RE monos, and track bar.

And a biggy..Trimming the fenders a bit and ripping the flares off. The 33s are rubbing good right now.

Pics when its done.

Met the guy thats building me the y-link system. Had an XJ with same stuff I do and we did the fork lift flex and the tire was a good 3ft off and all other tires were still on the ground. So I'm getting me some LOL.

Should ride good with all poly bushings and being a full y-link with new crossmember of cousre. Going to add a transfer case skid with it when I go to install it.

Gotta get all the other crap in first LOL.

Oh and Im making my own 8.25 cover/skid. Pics when I work on it again...
