Sure, here is what Im going to use:

Here is where I got the idea:

For those with an 02 and later where the evap system isn't under the hood, the zj bottle would work great, but without reworking the intake I don't have room.

Got the rear gears setup today, the OX and the ring gear on this thing are heavy, getting them out without a case spreader definitely is fun..

Didn't have the right size spindle socket so I didn't get the rotors/hubs off yet. Get that done and the axle cleaned up later this week.

Looking good. Where'd you get the truss and are you putting one on the rear too?

The front truss is a T&T customs piece as are the lower coil mounts.

The rest of my bracketry are going to be Clayton pieces.

The rear 4-link truss is coming from Claytons too.

Thanks for the link. I think I have one of those containers laying around the garage. Hahah.

Seems easy enough.

Why ox lockers?

Selectable and made in the USA. I used auto lockers in my last build and I'm over them.

I got the electric actuators for them also so it'll just be a flip of the switch.

If they made a cheaper selectable for a 14 bolt, I would have gotten it over a grizzly. Ha.

Electric actuator is a good idea. I thought you were still going with the cables.

Yeah, selectables aren't cheap, but worth it on rigs that see pavement time, IMHO.

Clunking, clicking, and ratcheting get old after a while.

I have arb's front and rear and don't see alot of street time. But some. And I honestly don't think I could ever run anything else again and be happy with it. I love my selectables ON and OFF road. Just my opinion

Ordered all the brakes/calipers/rotors/wheel bearings for my axles.

Almost as expensive as my ring and pinion sets..

Going to try and get a tcase headed this way soon also. Then I should only have a driveshaft left to order.. Obviously have to get it sitting on the suspension first.

Getting anxious to get the suspension in.

Where are you stationed? I'm currently deployed and this build threat is definitely keeping me motivated to want to do so much to my WJ when I get home! lol

I know what you mean. Hahah. Lug studs, lug nuts and wheel bearings front and rear cost as much as both ring and pinions with install kits... and I get wholesale prices. It would be crazy to see how much rotors, calipers and pads on top of that at retail.

You may need to hold off on drive shafts until the axles and tcase is in to measure everything.
