My Jeep Is Done!!! (wheeling pics are up!!!)

For those of you that dont know, my jeep has been sitting with no axles, tires, supension for about 6 months. Well i drove it tonight!!! I was SO happy even though it drives like crap lol. anyways, here are a couple crappy teaser pics. Im going to silver lake and twisted trails this weekend so ill get some action pics then...








Oh and i cant take all the credit. I had a couple buddys help with the welding. I had a local shop regear the axles and then JCR built the rest of the axles, steering and they have done alot more little things to my jeep.


Specs:
7.5 inches of lift
-----Clayton long arms
-----RE 5.5 inch coils and tera blocks in the front
-----modified 3 inch rustys offroad spings and tera shackles in the rear

Axles
-----Front dana 44 from a 76 for. narrowed to jeep width, MM hubs, alloy shafts, JCR 1 ton steering, custom JCR trac bar, JCR truss, 5.13 gears, arb air lockers ect ect ect

-----Rear ford 8.8, 5.13s, arb, JCR truss, and of course wheel adapters.


Theres lots of other stuff but that pretty much sums up the resent upgrades...

overall it was a good trip

Problems:
front locker leaks like crazy inside the diff, and by the end of sat the rear didnt work either (pump messed up)
I broke the belt in that last hole
tie rod end rubs the wheel a little (need spacers)
My tires did some custom fender trimming for me
still overheats (before the rad was caked with mud)


oh and it is NEVER done but at least it was wheelable for the first time in 6ish months. I think my next mod is going to be in the power department. I rode in a jeep with a 4.6 storker and was amazed BUT my buddy has a 302 that he would sell cheap that would look nice in the engine compartment.
