Man, there is no way I can. I'm working 60-70 hours a week, money is good, and unfortunately I still got a few small odd and end things I need to figure out before I drive that far. I'm going to work on some of those things this weekend. However, I think I may shoot for the October event you guys have.

An unlocked, built HP30 should be able to handle 37s, the minute you lock it however.

So any suggestions from you on cutting my output shaft to do my SYE? I haven't done it yet because it makes me nervous.

My gear guy said it was the 4.88 that killed his he was on 4.10s for a year no problems with an ax15.
4.56 are tougher than the 4.88s he said he run them if he wasn't on tons...

Good combo. Ive been real content with the hp30/8.25 combo strength wise. I was coming up a rock ledge under throttle on the last WBR trip and ended up bouncing around on everything pretty violently with no parts shed. Once I get all the other conponents beefed up I have no fear of the axles holding 35s. ibjeepin has been good proof of that as well lol.

The spider gears like to let go even with 35s and when that happens you have to rebuild the whole axle.

I'm surprised my ***** has held up like it has. I know when to let off, but sometimes I don't. So far, I've only broke one shaft. And I do beat on it a little...

I do, and it may be considered "crawling", but you wouldn't consider it slow if you rode with me once

If I had more money I would be all about doing jeepspeed.

Crawling even when it's quicker paced stuff just doesn't really interest me.

What I really want is a pre-runner MJ and an expedition XJ (which mine is slowly turning into).

ANYWAYS, I got some plans for my XJ. First, let me say, it wheels fawking awesome. I'm 100% happy with that. However, I got some issues I want to fix to make it moe streetable and to gain some power back. So, here are the future plans as of now:

-Do an alignment and get the steering wheel straight
-fix nutsert at cross member
-install my ZJ seats
-patch all the ****ing holes in the floor I had to cut out for the 3 link (long story)
-Herculine the floor?
-cut a section out of my crossmember to lower the drivetrain some
-possibly redo the rear leaf setup
-valve cover gasket
-4.88's

And maybe, next summer it will get a a cage...
