Well, its sitting on its own weight. Just waiting for a brake hose, since the left side I ordered had a junction in the middle, so it wouldnt work. I ordered another one that's the same as the right side. Also need to get a shorter section of brake line, because a 40" was too long. Then I'll bleed the brakes, and fill the diff with fluid, and then it will be ready to drive.

So I just finished a little while ago, but I would have been done a lot sooner, if one of the ******* brake caliper bolts didn't break as I was tightening it. They were going in a little tight, between the rust that was in there and paint from when I painted the brackets, I guess it was a little clogged. So I get the pass. side in fine, tighten the bolts down good, then get to the drivers side, and I guess I tightened the top bolt a little too much, and sheared it off basically flush with the bracket, so I wasn't getting vice grips on it. I tried welding a nut to it, didn't work, and broke I think 3 extractors. I couldn't retap it for a bigger bolt because it doesn't just hold the caliper to the bracket, its part of the sliding mechanism, so a bigger bolt wouldn't work. My neighbor ended up coming over and retapping it the same size, which I didn't think you could do, and it worked. I broke the bolt at like noon, and I didn't get the caliper on until about 8. But at least I'm done with the installation part.

Go Topless day on saturday was pretty cool, found CTeunch's rig there. Did a little wheeling on the beginner trails and didn't have any problems, even with my front swaybar connected. But going up the first hill, my rear end flexing caused my driveshaft to hit my exhaust, and I almost **** a brick when I first heard it. Thought my jeep was falling apart lol. Bought a new master cylinder that should handle the 4 wheel discs better, might have a shop do it for $100.

Looks like a fun time! Probably just the angle of the pic, but your 33's look bigger than CTeunch's 35's.

Works great, I think. I can't tell if there's any minor vibrations because of the tires, I have to throw the other ones back on and see. It gets pretty sideways in the rain now with the limited slip lol.

Yeah, I didn't stay long, only like 2.5 hours. I had to work at 2:30. I wish I could've stayed longer.

Haven't updated in a while. I did my headliner today, not too difficult, just time consuming. took me all damn day lol. While it was out I grabbed some tar paper stuff from my dads shop that I've heard people using as insulation/sound deadening, so I figured I'd give it a try. Also picked up an intake manifold to do the plenum plate on. And I'm thinking of regearing sometime this summer. There has to be a bad carrier bearing in the 8.8. It makes so much noise sometimes, and other times its almost not noticeable. Either way, it bugs me. And it would be nice to have some power again lol.

Ordered some new sideview mirrors a couple days ago from rock auto. Got here yesterday and put them on today. Its amazing how much better they are. Its literally like upgrading to an hdtv lol. The old ones had so many hard water stains on them, and the drivers side has been broken since I got the jeep, so the glass would vibrate and I couldn't see anything in it.

Started ordering more parts for when I do my plenum. Got an accel cap and rotor, ordered a cam sensor and an oil pressure sending unit from mopar wholesale, and a thermostat housing, intake manifold bolts, and an air filter (just 'cause) from rock auto. I already smoothed out the runners on the inside and cleaned the whole thing inside and out. Just gotta either get it glass beaded or paint it, just cant decide what color. And heres a pic of me moving the boat into the driveway so I can work on getting it ready to hit the water.

Edit: Forgot to mention that my front drivers side tire seems to have a slow leak. Why, I have no idea. I checked it about a week ago cause it looked low and it was at 10 psi. I took it off, sprayed the beads with soapy water, no bubbles, did the same with the valve stem, nothing, found one possible culprit on a section of tread, put this leak detection stuff my dad uses for gas pipe on it and nothing. I'm out of ideas.

Sent this guy a text asking him if he wanted to separate the long arms. He just threw it on there a half hour ago, which is why he said no for right now. Hopefully I get lucky and he does!

Edit: Forgot to mention I bought a kolak exhaust minus the fm50 still in the package from a guy on thespeedfreaks, and I ordered a fm10 series at work, should be there next friday. Things gonna sound BEAST.

Intake manifold is pretty much ready to go in. I'll probably start the swap sometime next week. Also thinking about getting roller rockers for my birthday.
