ok update time, I returned the wrangler axles since ideas fell thru and issues with them came up, so i got all my money back paid some bills and ordered a hurst shifter kit since i hate the ****ty stock one i have but have to now wait on the plastic bushing to come in from quadratec, dealership wanted more and the same waiting time for it to come in so just went with them. And also my headliner now has all sorts of wrinkles in it from front to back and im betting its the cold weather i hope it doesnt start to seperate. i have enough money for tires,iro steering upgrade, but looking for a direct swap 44 or 8.25 now. :/

I wouldn't swap in an 8.25. I have the 8.25 and I put Yukon Alloy shafts in it because I was worried about breaking a shaft. The shafts were horribly bent after a little over a year, so I put the stockers back in. I worry about breaking a shaft even though I'm only running 33" tires.

If I were you, I would get an 8.8 with 4.10's and disc brakes from Pull and Save, along with a D30 out of a 4cyl XJ. The D30 will bolt right and with new brakes you'll be into it about $200. The 8.8 would need only minor changes (weld on the spring perches) and it would fit. I can help you tack the perches in place if you need help - but you would need to have someone with more power burn them on. You could probably do the 8.8 swap for around $250.

bushings came in from quadratec after 2 weeks ..... :P they dont look they same as the old one but will still work just fine on the new shifter, btw i installed it and shifts a 1000% better & i also rolled over 234k.
put my sc300 in the garage and then it starts snowing :P time for jeep driving. I had to go pick up some really long zipties for the boot the shifter came with cuz the one that was in the box was not long enough ... wth lol, and bought a mr.gasket universal boot and modified it to fit so i cant see my trans/ground lol shifter boot only covered the arm and shaft.

Either one should be under $100 at pull and save, but super crummy time of year to be pulling it out in the yard!

Hey was reading through your build and saw that you installed the C-rok steering brace a while back. Question for you, did you install both inner and outer braces, or just the outer brace from the picture? Also When you remove the steering box bolts did you need to support the steering box with something?

Yes i did both but when i get a bumper i think it may be in the way.possibly have to make my own outer to make it work, some ppl do and dont have an issue. Na i just let it hang didnt go very far but a pain if u dont have someone when putting it back together lol

^ Could you feel a difference at all with both plates installed? Im about to tackle this project, and always wondered if the steering box was gonna drop out if I unbolted it haha. Thanks for clearing that up for me.
