The studs didn't break.. May have not been tight enough. Lug nuts were old and should have been replaced.. so that could have been the issue.

Also looking at lockers and Gears.. if anyone has any input, please feel free to tell me what lockers you all like and why.
(Just because I know someone will ask, im 3.5 and going on 33's.)
(I have to regear because my front is 3.55 and my rear is 3.05)
PM me if your interested. My parts Jeep has an Aussie Locked , 3.55 geared Dana 35 that you may be interested in. as well as set of 33 Super Swampers on AL rims you may like if you make the trip up. 2.5 hr.
I just dont know if I can get it out of the jeep in time for you. All the damn snow and Ice is a real problem for me as far as getting the ball rolling . I need to strip my parts jeep down and now there talking about another 6 to 8 inches of snow after midnight tonight.

Going to Alantic City for the week, since I couldn't go to NC for vacation.
But then again, Gambling and Drinking isn't too bad of a vacation

Found a Dana 35, 3.55 gears, Aussie Locker, that I will be picking up in the next week or so.

Will be putting new ball joints in this weekend and then the front axle will be done.

Looks good, liking the red. Did you ever figure out what happened with the wheel falling off? Looks like a lot of the lugs were cross threaded?

Na. Never figured it out. I'm just throwing new studs on it and calling it a day.

The guy claimed he did new ball joints in the hp30, But they were shot, one hub was also shot, along with bearings. Lol.

God damn dude. I checked the tubes to make sure they are not bent, and guess what.... They are not bent

this weekend I'll finish rebuilding this freaking axle.

Ball Joints showed up. Going to put them in the jeep in a few days once my IRO trac bar shows up.


Rockauto.com has a sweet magnet.

What? I've never got a MJ magnet. I've always got the one with the Monte Carlo or whatever on it.
