I sold the Moabs yesterday a local guy wanted them, sorry man.

A friend ask me to help him move his Claytons front long arm setup; maybe a 1000 miles everything still looks new, no crossmember hes asking $500 or best offer.

Its been a while since I've updated this.

I sold the JK's & Moabs and bought a new set of 33" MTR K's and a set of soft 8's. I'm waiting on my 12voltguy.com winch panel and piecing together the parts needed to swap the WJ brakes onto my D30. I still need to get my sliders finished and installed and relocate the EVAP before URE opens in a few weeks.

A small update as I'm trying to get the Zj ready for the May URE ride. I've got JKS braided extended lines to install and I plan to do that in conjunction with the WJ brake swap.

I've gathered the JKS hub spacers, the earlier calipers and DOM for the steering. They had knuckles at the PAP but I forgot my impact (even though I had my CO2).

I've talked with my brother at length about what direction I plan to take with this Jeep in the fall. I'm skeptical about the traditional Hp30/8.8 swap knowing I'd like a wider track width and stronger parts to handle a 35-37" tire. Therefore a 9" rear is a possibility with a 9" front, but if a dirt cheap Hp44 came up I might jump on it. But this would also necessitate a suspension rebuild which is a big reason why I'm not in too big of rush.

I'm almost done gathering the parts to swap in WJ brakes, crossover steering, axle tube seals, u-joint shafts, u-joint front driveshaft, and a hd diff cover. In the near future I'll also be adding a Spartan for the D44a and a rear BTF cover.

None to speak of.

I am an independant insurance adjuster and I have been SWAMPED with work over the past 6 weeks. I worked in the Gastonia/Shelby/Rutherfordton area for several weeks writing hail damage estimates only to get caught up with Tornado claims in the Raleigh area before I was finished! And I still have to cover my normal territory from Boone to Durham/ VA line to Salisbury.

But.... all this work and seven days a week crap is making the bank account grow.

And I need to sell my WRX.

Then back to the Jeep.
