Then wheeled the crap out of it today. Overheated in the 104* heat when the ground popped off my fan. Then I blew up my rear u-joint and drove the 35 miles home in front wheel drive lol! I think my pinion angle on the 8.8 ended up a scosche high. Is there any way to bring it down a notch that does not include shims or new perches. Looking at how everything settled I'd say it's about 2* high of where it should be. Not really any vibes except during a hard launch, but I should probably deal with that!

Oh and a pic from last night...I'll get more up later.

Time for a shower and a nap...

Cheers

Dude that looks awesome! I'm sure I missed it somewhere but what paint did you use? Using a spray gun?

I used the FelPro 1 piece gasket. Which made it really easy thank goodness. I used red rtv so it could handle the heat.

I finally started building the tube fenders for the back of my rig yesterday. HOPEFULLY I'll be able to get them skinned and painted today. I used 3/4" gas pipe, a pipe bender and my MIG welder. I found some bolts and welded them into the ends of the 4 mount points with a lock washer and nut on the inside of the fender wells. I'll get more pics as they progress to finished.

Apparently you got my point.
I bought two sets of cavalier seats on a recent trip to the yard, figuring it would save me a second trip since I work on more than one Jeep at a time. So I went to install a set on my wrangler last week and they're not even close to bolting up, now I need to make brackets or buy different seats
