No Tech Today...
But i will post pictures of the routing of ARB Line.
Got the HP 30 front in. Didn't have time take pictures but it I figure it is straight forward.
The ARB is flawless. I am super impressed on how it works and couldn't imagine how not to have a selectable locker in the front. It is mindless to work and really helps me get up those ledges.
I haven't had it out a ton but I did take some poser shots.
These really just show what lockers can do for you. I couldnt even get close to getting up this a week ago, now its simple.

Nice! Really coming along. I am pretty close as far as how me Jeep is set up to wheel. Not many ZJs Locked front and rear with 4.56 is what I mean. That front locker defiantly gets you up on rocks a lot easier.
One of my best wheeling co pilots is my dog. shes always out on the trail with me
Good luck and remember to be careful, its going to be a lot easier to put your self in a bad situation with lockers. Keep the Shiny side up is what I am saying.

OK so Went out to our local trails again, Walker Valley ORV park.
We had an awesome crowd of about 10 trucks, the day started with a nice drizzle and ended with some beautiful sunshine.
The Jeep ran like a champ, I couldn't have asked for anything more of it. The ARB is insane simple and awesome traction. IT got me into some situations where i shouldn't have but it was still fun.
A few pics Will have lots more over the next few days.
So after I got the rear receiver done, I wanted to start the rear swing away tire carrier.
I came across a killer deal on a DIY4x4 Pivot for a tire carrier. This thing is pure beef. 2.5'' Dom and dual bearings. This is gonna work alot better than my initial plan of using a bushing.
This is all Tacked together so it's easily changable.
Here is a sideview:
Please give me some feedback on what you think.
A good friend snapped some of these photos from 7-24.
This line is super tough, pictures don't do it justice. We had a guy on 60's 40'' tires in a blazer not make it. But the Grand sure did make it with a little finesse. Hopefully someone else got some good photo's of it too.
You can see my tire carrier in a few of these pics. I will take pics of the finished product tomorrow and post those up.
