Thanks! I thought about it, but don't have permanent access to a full metal shop. I'm sure if be able to make you one, or DetourUSA makes ones identical.

On another not, I put my old 3 inch lift on a friends rig today. But the driveline was making contact with the yoke, so we're getting some 1x1.5 square tube steel and making a home brew t case drop. Then it should be good. It's just a pavement princess so were doing everything cost-effective.

Thanks! It is a great place, I have yet to venture out beyond the local bend area, but hopefully soon I will. Just need to find more people willing to go with me

Another update-

Got my friends rig all done. Solved the driveline binding with a home made t case drop made out of 1x1.5 x .120 tube steel and some hardware from ace. $8 total. Makes me wish I wouldn't have spent almost $40 on my BDS drop. Oh well. Final product..


Trying to convince her to buy my wheels and tires so I can do 15x10 cragars and 33s.

Also got some exhaust work done today, but it was too dark to take a picture, I'll put one up in the morning. Night all. Cheers.

Oh the day.

First - here's what my exhaust looks like. The pipe before tucked up flush with the bumper and collided with my shackle bolt. So I cut off the bent part if the pipe and put a straight piece of pipe on.



Second- I was leaving a parking lot, heard a big ol' BANG, got out and saw that the bolt going down into my disco snapped right on off. But I called Rough Country and they warrantied it, should be getting a new link Friday.

Ain't that the truth.

Another few small updates -
Got a few luxury parts from a guy in town parting out a jeep. Door check mechanism and lift gate supports.



And a guy with an immaculate, stock XJ parked next to me at Autozone. So, naturally..



Also! The friend that helped me with my light bar is getting metal ordered tomorrow to build sliders.

Well,

Rough Country sent me an entire new set of disconnects. So I'm pretty stoked on that one. Always good to get something shiny under the jeep. Putting those on today.



And I got a couple of poser flex shots on the hill next to my driveway. I have more droop, but I started ripping off my fender flare so I stopped.. I need to invents in some hockey pucks. But the leafs flex SO much more than my aal.
