I'll be done before that for sure.

Have you heard about Johnson valley? Go to pirate and check out the massive letter on the front page.

I'm going to write a letter, my gf is going too as well.

It's still going to be a few months before I put it in. I'm still curious on the shift cable.

When you put yours in, can you take a picture so I can get an idea on what to do.
I can get you some pics of mine ic it will help you.

Ya, that would help a lot. I'm thinking about buying the sye soon and just putting the 231 in there.

My build slowed down a big so it would be nice to have 2wd for the summer.

It's a thought.

Cut it in half with die grinder. Flip the bottom piece cut the top piece diagonal bevel both pieces. Measurement should be 2.90" to 3.00" center of the pin to the center of the hole. Test fit it to male sure that it clears everything and weld it up all the way when you get it tweaked just right.
You will also have to move your cable to the bottom hole.

I saw where the 231 you had didnt have the speed sensor and I was wondering if you knew were to get the 3-wire connector for it. I just picked up a np242 out of a zj and it has the sensor but it didnt have the plug and wires. I have looked and looked but cant find anything??

that sucker is huge!!! and your tires are small, you are going to drag on everything.

Idk whew the speed sensor wiring is. I bought it how it is. I'm gunna pick up a super short sye that has a speed sensor in the kit. Did you try advanced adapters? They might have one.

For strength, ha. I'm not sure if I'm gunna shave it right now. I'll decided when it comes time to slap it under.

And these tires are just for this lift, I might sell them, or maybe keep them for street use. I'm planning on 37 inch km2s, but depending on how MGDWJs looks with 37s, I might go 40s :-)
