So I have a bit of disappointing news, my brother ended up taking my jeep to a local shop for the rear axle install because he wasn't comfortable hooking up the brake system. So the shop installed it and took it for a quick test drive, and the rear end was vibrating like crazy. So we went in to check it out and the axle shafts can slide in and out about an inch on each side. So we pulled the diff cover off and found pieces of metal loose inside. The axle has less than a mile on it and was installed professionally. We're contacting ECGS now, hopefully they'll do the right thing a replace the defective axle.

ill jump in line to bash the lines..... looks like the *mechanic* just bent the lines around his/her hands. if it was a professional shop i would expect them to understand how to use a bender. before reading i thought you did the swap yourself and was like DAMN very clean looking great job.

first off, i am the one who did all the work on the jeep from the point where it was stock until the point now. The only thing i didnt do was the rear axle due to time constraints. As far as the brakes go if you just take a look at the lines you can notice that the part that goes around the shock is braided steel line. im not sure why the shop i took it to put it on the outside of the shock but when i get it back i will simply unbolt the bottom of the shocks and relocate it to the inside. as far as the hardline goes on the brakes the picture does a pretty good job of making the lines look "sloppy". in person the lines look alot cleaner. the minor setback with the rear axle is currently being fixed so the jeep should be back on the road by early next week.
