Still sick, but tired of doing nothing so I pulled the 44 out today...some pics.

Dented diff cover, must have been last trip lol. Look at how much material is left around the lower bolt




Both shaft's splines have a slight twist. Damn. Oh well I'll just have to drop the asking price.


Gotta love having a big mess and a hoverjeep

I've had to hammer it back into shape at least a dozen times, in fact in the first pic you can see the bottom lip is peeled back at least a quarter inch a little left of the center . I lost at least a 1/4" of material in the bottom from all the dragging, if not more haha.

I just ran into your youtube videos. I have to say, the revving at about 13-14 seconds is the sexiest sound Ive ever heard from a jeep.

I think we have the same friends. And I like your sponsors.

Watching that rear suspension work is ridiculous. Very cool rig.

Well during our trail clean up two weekends, someone had to much of the sponsor and flipped their big tire TJ. Snapped and I mean snapped the rear half of an 8 point cage off (yes, DOM tubing) and destroyed the rig in a run called Pure Hell. So I try to take it easy on the sponsor and wait till after. But running the camera, it's ok.

Haha this picture is a timeline, it shows my dads past 3 vehicles. He started with my 01 brand new, I got it from him about 4 years ago with 160k on the clock and he got the blue 04 overland in the garage used with 5k miles on it. He put about 220k on it and ran it into the ground. It's sitting in the garage with varying compression in all cylinders lol. After that he got the maroon 04 with 50k on it. I think hes around 100k on that now and swapped the BB, tires, rock rails and skids off his old one.


He's actually on his 5th consecutive grand cherokee, he bought a blue 93 ZJ NEW back then, and then had a '97 before getting into the WJ's. How awesome is that haha.
