Thanks man. All you need for a build sheet is your vin #, take it to your local dealer and than can print it out in a few minutes. I think you can get it online too, but not sure were.

Tore down the front of the jeep yesterday to remove my mangled tow hooks and fix my mesh grill from when the tow strap broke. Think ill try to figure out a good secure way to put d rings where my tow hooks used to be. I think I got enough sand out of my front end to fill a small dump truck.lol. a friend of mine bought a garage with some land to resell so I have a real place to work on my jeep now




A few more pics of my new iron rock premium rock slidersi

Not bad at all, although my pinch seem was not straight and took a little work, great kit, just didnt like the self tapping screws so I drilled and tapped some bolts in for the support arms. I do recommend them

Congrats, man. That's something wild. I can only imagine how surprising it is, but if you're in a good place in life for it, then all the better. Most people don't have that luck. So that's awesome. I wish you two the best, and I hope your little Jeeper to be is healthy and happy. Now, wait, will you still be moving back to Colorado?

A little? Come on. But at least you live where there's more to do. Where I am there is no-thing! Well, if you can eventually get to Colo with your kid, I'm sure that'd be a great place to raise him or her.

Thanks man. Still need to get the sliders out on the trail
Haven't had to rebuild it yet, I think most of my noise is coming from the front driveshaft, noticed my weights were missing about a month ago and can't find anyone local to balance it for me.

I know how that is. No one around her does DS work beyond just basics. I ask them about 'balancing' and they wig out, as if it's just unheard of. There is only one place in the entire Texas Panhandle that does it, apparently. So I'm trying to figure out if it's my front or rear DS and see how I can get it to them. Blasted Jeeps. Never are done. Oh, and no one around here even knows how to work on them, even the Jeep Dealership. I wish I knew how to get some of my other issues dealt with. Sometimes you need a Jeep expert. I'm a dope when it comes to these things. I'll spend hours to deal with something where someone who has experience and know-how could take care of it in minutes.

Best of luck to you with your driveshaft issues. Btw, how are things on the baby front?

Went to wash the jeep and found this



Hub was so hot it was boiling water off it. Any ideas? Bad hub, e brake hanging, or blown diff seal? Any help would be great. I'm thinking hub bearing but it smells kinda looks like diff fluid, just confused on why it got so hot.
Please share thoughts. Thanks
