Congrats. Have you driven it yet? How are the new brakes working out?
Yeah, if you look in the pick the wet spots all over is gear oil, didn't get the pinion seal in, in front of the axle is soaked! Going to do that in the next day or so. I LOVE the brakes, not going to mess with the proportioning valve, I like it the way it is. Though I am getting a little noise from the dif, I think it's the carrier bearings, but thats process of elimination, I'm going to see if I can get a professional opinion, them try and fix it myself if I can.

Sounds pretty sweet. Hope that nothing is shredded already.

Can't wait till I get going on my 8.8 swap

took off my dash completely traced vacuum lines till they operted what they were suppose to all my hvac control work now first time ever my heater stuff has worked proplerly ive had my jeep for well over a year. actually manged to cut two of the lines and toss em no use for em. ziptied the freshair/recirc valve open so its always on recirc that jeep gets hotter then hell now. got thw slider for hot/cold working. finally got my switch panel installed and most of the wires ran. ziptied almost all; the wires up under the dash so your not steppin on em when you get in.

helped my bro work on his liberty hes replacing the steering rack... took off the tires,calipers,rotors,and working on the lower a arms stupid ifs. gotta take off the lower a arms to access the bolts that hold on the front diff to pull that to get to the rack. that thing has like 4 adjusting cam bolts per side for alignment.

spent half a day on my back tracing down a wire in my bros 83 chevy cube van the lights brakes 4 ways reverse lights and somethign else werent working finally traced it back to a fusible link on the starter only took 3 hours and to top it off the damn thing threw my back out

Welded and installed a very unfinished front bumper/brushguard today on the 94. Steel and brushguard were spare parts sitting around the garage. It is more or less a center section at this time, still trying to figure out which design I want to go with to complete it. At least the majority of people who have seen it say they like it and can not wait to see how it turns out. I hope to have it finished soon and start on the rear bumper. I took a couple of pics but they turned out way too dark....will take a few tomorrow and post them.

You and me both, but with almost 200k on the axle, it may be do for some new bearings in there, idk. I'll find out soon though.
