Looks good! 32's fill out the factory wheel opening nicely, that will likely be my next tire size if Im still partial to keeping my flares by then lol

Still haven't gotten the chance to toss the RC relocation brackets on yet. Probably won't do that till summer and maybe lift the front up a little more because of that.

I am waiting for my rear master install kit and locker to arrive and the rear diff should be rebuilt and locked within the next couple of weeks!!

Ill probably put mine on in the next few months also. Ever thought about doing the zj/liberty rear disc swap while you've got the rear end apart?

Well today was gorgeous outside so I had to do something with the Jeep. I rewired all my lights and cleaned the routing all up. This was due to the engine bay fire a few months ago which charred/melted some of the wires. Also ran a new extended front diff breather tube. (don't mind the painted stuff under the hood hahaha)

Ya the Samurai is pretty damn capable, it has built diffs with chromo axles and lockers, linked on coils, 4.62 gears, 6.5:1 transfer case with a 1.6L motor swap on 33's, custom interior cage... The thing crawls like a boss!

My jeep is coming along. Can't wait to rebuild the diff this weekend and install the locker. I have a big wheeling trip coming up for May Long with my group!!

So how noticeable is the rear lunchbox? I want one but still undecided. The clicking doesnt bother me at all, just dont want any loud pops.

It's pretty invisible to be honest.. There is some clicking here and there but nothing close to loud popping or anything.
