Yessir. My buddy had some binding problems on the adjustable ones he built. I might lob off the back half.

I went wheeling last weekend with a group called "make it or break it". Had a blast and i believe i had the smallest tires/rig there. They nicknamed my jeep "bulldozer" because my front axle would push a pile of dirt a least 4" tall the whole time i was there. I was getting winched up a hill after a couple of failed attempts(open F/R and tiny tires) when she started spitting oil from the bellhousing. Let it cool off finished the trail, put her on the trailer and went home. She sat all week when i was working while home for spring break. Made a couple of trips into town and she seemed fine. So like an idiot i thought she would be okay to drive 200 miles round trip to a jeep potluck. halfway there she starts spitting oil again. I turned around and went home. Talked to my dad and asked him what he thought the problem was (older and more smarter). He thought seals so i ordered some. Drove it to my girlfriends house to drop it off and now it takes a half throttle to move the bish. So im going to drive the 98 until i finish school in may. Then long arms, 8.8, 35's, chop top ect. ect.

Cliffs:
beat the piss out of it wheeling
smoked the tranny
driving 98 XJ with 3" on 235's
building it better in may

You missed some good Brats. Scott made some baked beans with bacon and beef in them. Oh and a Kaiser Duece showed up to hang out.

The brackets went on the back burner. My PLC class is kicking my A**. I have about 5 stages i plan on doing. Ending at 6.5" and 35's. Nowhere near as cool as yours, but perfect for what i wheel.
