The axle is in. The lift is on.



Just have to pick up some bolts from the hardware store tomorrow.. broke a few things.

Here are some random pictures. (nothing good. Will get lift pictures tomorrow.)

I believe these bushings should be connected to the control arm It explains my vibrations and play in the rear.

Proof that you are spending a lot of time in the Pine's ya Pinney.


Your wheeling environment I know so well. Hence the Snorkel brotha

and the with wet lands and sand that the Pines offers up, You will be replace parts like the U-joint , breaks, bearings, ect, ect, way more then most on here. Hope you like spending a lot of time on Jeep Up keep . that is why so many people I know stopped wheeling. they cant keep up with the work.
P.S. Go easy on those back tires, 242 = Burnouts

I miss living on the east coast but I am so happy I don't have to worry about that. Colorado rocks! Water in your TC sounds like no fun!
