Have you measured the pinion angle in the rear? From th driveshaft pic it looks pretty severe (vibrations?) Otherwise a pretty cool build.

Traded away the WJ to get a commuter

We finally got another Jeep after 5 years without. Too bad it's ALL stock.

I haven't measured it yet but I noticed that as well. I'm thinking that it may have something to do with leaving my coil spring spacers out. The CAs are adjusted for 6.5 and right now it's sitting at 4.5. I haven't driven it yet due to the brake line but I should b able to later today.

thanks to everyone that nominated me for March ROTM. Finally got the brake line situation figured out and got her out of the shop. Here are a couple poser shots at work both the front and rear shocks were limiting the flex. My rears are too long because i dont have my coil spacers in and my fronts are too short cos they are still my old tereflex shocks when i was at 4.5 i ordered some BPEs from IRO so im waiting on those before i put the mx6s up front. and next week is the TC swap! Im waiting to throw in my aussie because im trying to find an HP30 for a decent price.

Well I don't have mine on yet so I can't be all that convincing. Who would you go with?

Id more than likely go with IRO. the price is reasonable and its completely bolt on. Like i said, im not in with any welders around here just yet and spending the money to have the bracketry installed doesnt sound appealing to me.

Yep, thats correct, went into my 5.2 and I had to swap the input. same style of tail shaft and no drive shaft mod's were necessary!

Good luck with yours!

I'd get a HP30 first. LA's aren't that important since you don't drive it every day.

and to be honest, my ride isnt bad now. i would drive it every day with no concerns of ride quality. may just be low standards but either way. Im on the hunt for a HP30 but its darn near impossible to find one with 3.73s for a decent price. keep an eye out for any in your area cariboulou. that would be the perfect excuse to come out there and wheel with you.
