Hah yeah if she ever comes out of her house.


Anyways:



Dana 30 with 4.56 gears. Also bought a 2'x3' sheet of plate steel to make a belly skid for the wheeling trip this weekend.



IRO trackbar bracket just arrived via FedEx today. This thing is super beefy. I already have the double shear trackbar that I bought from bigbluezj94.




Followed this on the way home, seems a bit low to the ground don't ya think?

You gonna do anything to the HP30 before you install it?, seals, bearings, paint, truss?

It's going to be rebuilt completely. The IRO truss, IRO Almost Alloys, etc.

By the way, it's an LP30. Reason I got it was that it had 4.56 gears and I got the axle for $100.

Yeah exactly. Now I just need to save up some money to regear the rear axle.

The new Dana 30 will get an Aussie Locker most likely. I realllly want an ARB, but that would mean gearing it again.

I I I would resell that axle, make a few bucks to fund a hp30. Otherwise you'll just end up doing it again

Yeah I might do that. But my IRO Iron Y is meant for an LP30 so I would lose the adjustability.

The IRO Iron Y works on both axles and is still is adjustable. I swapped my LP30 for an HP30 with no issues. The mounting brackets are in the same location.

that is a good deal on the lp but at your height you should consider the hp your pinion has to be way off

Yeah man. Im sure someone with a wrangler could use that axle. (And if anything you could make money, offer it for $150. haha I don't care)
I ran into the same problem, the LP wouldnt work with my setup.
