Pulled my front axle out and started cleaning it up for paint
Painted my leaf springs, u-bolt plates, diff slider, brake calipers, diff cover, and shackles.
Started making my d-ring mounts on my front bumper
Realized I really need to order ball joints for the front end

My rear 9" axle shafts and disk brakes get ordered tomorrow, along with a new line for my slave cylinder. Amongst other various odds and ends...

i cut a notch in mine were it goes on the steering box. then put a pry bar in the notch and pry it open, it will fall right off. i sprayed and sprayed and used a pitman arm puller. nothing worked so out came the cutoff wheel

I've been meaning to pick up a shovel, how and where did you mount it?

I bought GenRight bumbers last week. i got them all welded on for the most part except for 2 brackets that bolt to the roll bar.i also got my dads sport cage that he swapped out for a family cage. Chopped it up and added to mine. got a few other things ima do before i take it out again....

Front all welded on.


Back all welded and bolted on. Roll cage modded. I am going to take it out, sand blast it, and paint it as well. I also am going to make another bead lock rim for a spare.

I bought my YJ with 4" of lift and 31" tires. I upgraded to 33" tires. There's no way that stock jack was going to help me anymore. I got myself a Hi-Lift that mounts to the bumper, but my issue was where do I keep a tire iron. When I go wheeling I take my tool box, but around town I don't want to leave my tools in the open bed for the world to steal, so I removed the factory jack and made my own tire iron mount under the hood, so that I could still change a tire.

Click Free, I hope - First time to try to do it for someone. I assume I just quote the message.

2" body lift, 3/4" shackles, 32x11.5 Mickey Thompson MTX, Ultra Baja Champ wheels. Only gave $400 for the tires and wheels and they are basically brand new. thought that was pretty good.

Measured for all of my new wiring to support the dual battery setup and upgrade. Installed fuse holders, relocated PDC and finally inserted both Optima Red Tops into the tomken tray.

Expect the pitman arm to be a p.i.t.a., then when it falls off in your hand you can be pleasantly surprised... I used the standard P/A puller.... maxed it out to the point of bending...then 6 or 8 good shots with a 4lb. hammer.... presto
