I apologize... forgot the camera at home.

So I was going to regear the 8.8 the other day and put the Aussie in.... Pulled off the tires, pulled off the brakes and wheel spacers, after I pulled off the diff cover I looked at the carrier and thought....wtf.... Turns out my 8.8 has been a limited slip the entire time. So that was time well wasted, I must say the 8.8 sure does SUCK. I always thought it was open, and did not even notice when I did the 8.8 build.





So instead, I started on the bumper build. FYI the winch mount is for sale now. $250 shipped, comes with mounts.

Mocked up.... Had to cut off some parts of the factory mounts and hammer in some of the front fascia.




and how it is now, I still need to put the winch mount on and line it up with my unibody mounts. I am sanding down the whole thing grinding all welds.

Wow! I want to do some of the same things to my jeep. I love the v8 swap and would love to do one, but don't have the mechanical know how to do it. Wanna take a trip up to NH and help me swap in a v8? lol I hope some day my jeep will be half as good as yours.

Hahahhaha, we run D30's with all sorts of lockers, 37's, 36's, 35's all day with V8's, 4.0's, built 4 cylinders... They hold up pretty good.

I got a carrier from Luke at IRO, so thats all good.
