Here is the beef that came from ECGS. Awesome customer service from these people. I only got one stub shaft when I ordered two. Called them and told them the situation and they sent one out no questions asked. Gook folks.



Really like these:

Thanks. Yea, I'm trying to get this build rolling. The building on the house is moving along pretty good now. So once the house is done, I should be all to pick up the build a little bit.

Thought I almost had the long arms sold today, but a no go. Hoping I can sell them once tax refund time rolls around. I was getting excited about a cage!

Have you solved your frame plate problems? I did mine in stages, and noticed a difference every time. Right now my frame is fully plated all sides from the front to the rear lca mounts. Ive added a second crossmember about 18" behind the transmission crossmember and build a custom transmission crossmember/radius arm mount. I plan on finishing the rear plates when I do the rear end.

Well I didn't really have a "problem", I am just wanting to plate the unibody because I know it will be under more stress with the 1 tons and 37s. But no I haven't even came close to starting on plating it yet. It is good to know that it made a noticeable difference.

I'll have to throw up an updated picture of the house here soon. All the electrics are ran, windows in, sheet rock is up and they're about to start throwing brick on the outside.

And not only do I have the house to pay for, now I got a wedding I have to somehow pay for. Those two things are going to pretty much bleed me dry money wise for like the next 9-10 months. So don't expect anything until like this time next year. I mean I'm happy about it, but damn, I don't understand why it's got to be so freaking expensive. Feels like you got to make 250k a year to pay for this stuff. Glad other folks got money, cause I sure as hell don't...

Going to make my own arms. More than likely going with double tri rear 4 link and a 3 link front.

Been thinking about a fuel cell after I helped a buddy put one in his YJ. Could integrate fuel cell mounts into the future cage.

Just another thing on the list...

More than likely picking up a spare trans to rebuild so I can have it in my back pocket when mine decides to take a dump. Need some help with this rebuild kit:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/370590428599...84.m1438.l2649

Didn't know there were two different widths on the band? Apparently there is a 1.375" or a 1.6" wide band.

Also, thoughts on getting a slight upgrade with a torque converter? Found a Hughes Performance Tow Performance on Summit that was used for good low end grunt.

Any input on these topics would be appreciated.

If any of you follow my Facebook, you've probably seen some of these. Here are a few pictures of where all my extra money has been going...













The money shots...





Got two of these bad boys installed for future tools...



I'm just getting pumped for my new garage! I know I'm going to fill it up quick though.
