went outside in the rain and took some crappy pics for you guys




the reason for that strap above is...


and

lol

ill fix the ujoint on the rear driveshaft tomorrow and take some better pics


edit: to those of you who have experience with adjusting CAs, setting pinion angles, etc.
by looking at the pic of my front axle, do you think i need to shorten my front lower CAs? my pinion is like parallel to the ground.. i adjusted the CAs to what the RC instructions called for

You need to go buy a magnetic base angle finder and measure your angle. Every Jeep is different and you cant go based off of somebody elses measurements. You can use them as a baseline, but you need to set your own.

so when i blew the front driveshaft i took the pinion bearing with it.. making all kinds of noises. and the front yoke has some nice play in it.
instead of deciding to fix the 30 (which wouldnt even be worth it to me) im buying Roger's (greengc4x4) hp30 and gonna begin a small axle build. i will most likely be running 2wd for a good while right now
that or maybe ill shorten my lowers and run another front cv shaft while i build up the hp 30 so i can atleast have 4wd in the winter
