Worked on small stuff the rest of the evening. Tightened up the control arms, and track bar. Finished painting the frame stiffeners, foil taped the seam in the spare tire tub and put on the cover and tidied up the garage.

Things are coming together. Now if I can just get my transfer case life would be great!

Dang that protofab looks awesome. I'm waiting on the notch customs front bumper to be done. Looking forward to that. All the rears with the tire carriers are expensive and way out of my range currently.

The the next mod is 8.8 in the rear. So I can get off this turdy five

Good call. I ran an 8.8 in my YJ, great axle for 35s and pretty much dirt cheap with the added bonus of being 5x4.5 out of the box to match a lot of Jeeps' front axles.

I drive a 2500 with a Cummins as my DD/tow rig.

Yep, deleted, studded, and tuned with a dual disc clutch. It makes towing my gooseneck too easy.

yea zj's are 5x4.5 which makes my life easy. Not to mention artec builds a truss kit for bolt in so it lines it all up and all you have to do is weld. So looking forward to learning to do an axle swap.

Yeah, can't wait to get it out. I'm not much for mud, this area of the country has more of it than I'd prefer..
