Thanks man. Glad I could help you out.

Finally got some more of my parts from Ballistic. Still waiting on my DOM of all things.



And just got word from work today that I'm going to be working 60 hr weeks all through September. Will basically only have Sunday off. End of the fiscal year sucks. So much for working on the Jeep at all this month.

On the upside, lots of OT to pay off debt and get more parts.

Thanks man.

So, I've been keeping an eye out for some wheels again. Kind of looking at the KMC enduro beadlock right now.

Damn sexy wheels, but on the pricey side.

Damn, didn't see that. I love the look of those raceline monsters. The only thing is that they don't make them in the 8x170 lug pattern. SaturnICL had to have his custom drilled.

A majority of beadlocks are big $$ though.

Edit: Well, nevermind, just found the thread on pirate and the guy said he could get the 8x170 pattern. Ugh, I need to pay off my debt first before I get these. Even though it is an awesome deal. Hopefully he will have the sale still going here in another couple weeks.

I'm actually thinking about pulling the rear end this weekend. That way I can line up the S10.5 and mark it up as needed since I have everything bracket wise for the rear axle. May get some of the Clayton stuff put on as well. Need to change the trans fluid and filter, too.

PM me your number and I'll shoot you a text or something this weekend.

Are those the heims you are using for link ends? They look like 3/4 or 7/8.

Nice choice on Ballistic. They make quality sh*t. Shipping times blow, though.

And great build.

They are the ends I'm using for the track bar. They are 7/8" with a 3/4" ball.

I'll agree, their stuff is nice and beefy. But yea, their shipping sucks big time.

And thanks!

Finally got my steering tubing from Ballistic. But for some reason, another 5 ft. section of the exact same tubing was to much of a hassle to ship with the two that I got. Damn ridiculous.

On another note, pretty much made my mind up on some Walker Evans wheels. I think they'll look pretty good.

Also still talking to Kolak about getting my gears/installs/lockers for the tons. Can't wait to have those in my possession.
