My Sadass 5.9 is back on the road again. pic

Hello Gents! I am happy to say My 1998 5.9 ZJ is back from the dead, after I pulled off some major modifications . Here is a quick Pic or two. My sons is the Black ZJ on 33's . also a locked ZJ with a 5.9 power plant. and I am on the Right if you remember. Some of The new parts= 7" IRO Long arm Premium kit F/R. another big one was a new Trussed HP D30 with Detroit locker , 4.56 and alloy axle shafts. plus new steering box upgrade and Kevins Brace. Oh Yea! Bigger shoes too. Now sporting the 35 MTR's with Kevlar. Its been a long Year and a half with out my Jeep to drive. I had a ton of work to complete and all in my dirt driveway of all places. So far I can not be happier with the new Beast. I hope to get it on the trails this weekend. Some snow wheeling maybe sooner. Let me know what you think

Hello Steve ! Not the front axle. My front ring gear finally busted a tooth off on the LP D30. However I still have the front Aussie Locker looking for a new home. The Rear is the same axle, but One of the Ring gear bolt heads snapped off and ate the Ring and Pinion up. Had to replace everything plus a master rebuild kit. I have been wheeling with the Same Aussie locker I put in it shortly after I got it from you. Its held up well over the past few years. The front is the HP now.
