Got rims today for Bobs project jeep. Cragar soft 8's. Summit ships fast. Under 48hrs. Decided to rock the fullwidths on 32s so I can go to the Jeep events. Then building the axles heavily when more money comes. So stiffeners and brackets need to be ordered

Big thanks to Corbin at POS fabrication for hooking me up with some heim joints for the 3 link. Those are 2 1 1/4 inch heims for the frame side LCA's and 2 7/8s for the UCA. I will be running rubber axle side joints for the lowers.

Picked up a broken 97 galant for 650 bucks. Dropped 300 into it and as of monday I have a 30 mpg DD. It sucked to fix but it gets double the mileage of my jeep

Sounds like the jeeps going to be tougher than mine when your done. Hows it been going? Ive been in the same boat with my jeep. Luckily no large things broken, just a bunch of small ones. Been trying to get them fixed and back out on the trail. I havent even fixed the dent in the rear quarter panel from the last time i was out. lol. Im going to send in money for JOCCI here soon, so i can do more wheeling. Let me know if any wheeling trips are coming up.
