Today I woke and went immediately to Tractor Supply and got some bolts I needed, and then came home and loaded boxes of goodies into the jeep bed.
Hurculiner cans, Argon&CO2, 100 lbs of dogfood, Bestop box, steps, winch, tools, soundbar, Hi-Lift, wife on the bumper, the works!
The goal was to get the tire weight correct as much as possible and to measure the drivelines.
I called Tom Wood Custom Driveshafts, and surprise surprise, he offers a 10 % military discount. Amazingly, he asked ME if I would like the discount, I didn't have to ask for it. I had to prove I was military with my dot mil email address, and the rest was easy as pie. I have to say, dealing with Tom on the phone is a pleasure.
My shafts are being mailed tomorrow. WOW easy.
Good price too.
Here is the loaded down YJ, sans wife.
To do the shaft, I had to add the tires which aided alot in getting the axle centered. Made it a breeze. Then I was able to point the pinion sort of at the Atlas close enough for measurement of the drive shaft.
