im in like 15 different little FB jeep groups so i keep my eyes open all the time and it worked out awesome this time


and BAM its on and looks badass IMO i love the look of it! just need to make something to fill the void in the back there.




BUT i guess you got to take the good with the bad... last night was driving back to my GF's house and noticed the front end didnt sound right. Well right as i lowered the radio the front of the jeep dropped... started dragging and came to a stop. Thankfully i was only going 25MPH. The dam wheelbearing pulled apart. And no they werent old the hubs had about 300 miles on em. ****ty driveworks guess it was a bad bearing. ive never had any issues with driveworks before but this time i did.
passenger side wheel got ripped off and the knuckle was dragging on the ground almost pulled me into the dam gaurdrail.

the driver side from it being under so much stress came half way out.

can see where it dragged on the ground. ripped my brake line and ruined my caliper.

bent both LCA mounts (hopefully my CA are ok. IDK yet they look like they might be somewhat tweet but im hoping its just the bushing being under pressure)

from the tire coming off it messed up my fender

all and all me and my GF are ok no harm done. the jeep needs some TLC, needs new axle, caliper, pads, lines, and what ever the new axle i swap in needs. broke the knuckle passenger side. did find out that the bumper can support the jeep lol they lifted the front up by the bumper. hopefully my wheels arent bent. the passenger side tire got worn down pretty good on the side knubs but its still good.

That sucks, been there myself. Had my wheel studs break off doing about 50 mph with 4 people in my Jeep a couple years ago. Luckily no one got hurt and I didn't do quite as much damage but it sucked and of course it happened at like 11 PM and I got screwed on the tow.

Damn wheel rolled into on coming traffic and bounced about 20 ft up in the air off a Mercedes or Beamer and rolled about a half mile down the road. Lucky for me the guy just kept going.

Damage isn't a big deal, gives us something to work on. But it hurts the pride to see someone else towing your Jeep.

Damn!! Need new knuckles?


Do your pre runner bars block your headlights? I've got them waiting to go on but I don't know how to notch the kickers. I'm going to do them down lower than the headlights, hopefully.

Yeah, I get it. At least it's just panel damage and they bolt right up.

Any excuse to upgrade right?

was crunching some number about what to do with my front end of my jeep. and for what i wanted it came out to ~$1000 and that didnt include regear into a D30... so i can get a '79 D44 HP/9" for $350 100% complete steering brakes, everything! what do you guys think? is that the better way to go? i personally dont know how to weld but i have friends that do and im sure they wouldnt charge me more than $600-$800 tops (im shooting high) but what you guys think? i know i would need new wheels too.


thinking of running these... are XJ coils the same width at TJ i think so since i know u can swap em there just different height which wont matter here.
