Cool. I'd like to just go wild with my wj but its my dd and we DO have kids. Haha. If I had another car I'd be more willing to do it but that's just not possible. Looks like I may be driving 350 miles a week starting immediately, too... It's making me rethink my 3" lift and 31's. More like a bb and some tall skinny tires... Lol and ac and a better stereo system... Lol

Just finished reading the whole build thread in one sitting. Truly amazing what you have accomplished in a relatively short amount of time! Getting a welding rig and learning to use it will be very high on my list of priorities once I get to my next station. BTW: the A-10 is a beast! I've always loved that platform. Went the Navy route, myself. Been in for 9 years including almost 3 years of flight school and I'm almost ready to get my wings. Been a long road, but totally worth it. I hope you can get back to flying regularly soon!

Thanks bro. Congrats on getting your wings, big accomplishment. We will fly eventually, the time away from the jet has let me spend some more time with family so its not all negative.

What jet are you headed to or do you know yet?

Rear driveshaft is in. Drove it for 20 min to start the rear gears' break in.

Gonna drive it to work the rest of the week and over the weekend/next week to try and hit 500 miles to fully break them in then change the gear oil.

Still have some minor stuff to do before its ready for the trail but its nice to be driveable again.

Thanks.

Here's an *** shot.



Makes my truck's 35s look kinda small...

As far as drivability, it rolls down the highway great surprisingly. I had it up to 70 with no issues except a slight tire imbalance that presents itself about 50mph and goes away by 55. I have some internal balance beads I may put in. I'm still debating that.

The spare looks huge! I love the stance with the 37's. The rear protofab bumper does not look so big anymore. I like the bumpers more every time I see them.

I vote this GCOTY '13! I now have the axle swap bug, and I just got my dub lol. Do you have any resources to suggest for just general information on doing them? Have been doing as much reading as possible.

Thanks, but I won't actually get my wings until the end of July. I just started BFM today and still have section low-levels and road reccces left. Just got back from carrier quals last week, though. That was a rush.

I'll be in some variant of the 18 after this (unless something goes drastically wrong). I'm looking for Supers in Lemoore, CA, but I'd be ok with east coast Hornets or Growlers up in WA. They're all pointy and fast.

That's awesome. I was just doing a little studying on Growler capes the other day.

Good luck with the rest of your training.
