well after a couple months out of town i am finally home and have the time and money to get the heep rollin.

this is how it sits right now with the old lift and tires, it still has no brakes or driveshafts.


then i got 8.8 brakes stuff in the mail from currie




then i picked up 5 of these




so in order to put the 8.8 backing plates on I had to take the shafts out and with the new locker I wasnt exactly sure how to get the c clips out. But after looking around the insides and some very tiny needle noses i got them out.

here is the auburn locker




thats it for now should be driving in a day or two depending on how busy i am this week.

Haha yeah that is true, he asked a few pages back. But they are 32x11.50 r15s with about 40% tread left. I popped one of them on the steel wheels so I put my spare on and that is mounted to one of my stock wheels, so if you're interested we would have to get that tire put on the steel wheel so pm me if you're interested.

Got a late start on the jeep today so by the time anything real was finished it was too dark for pics on my phone. but i finished the brakes on the 8.8 today, all i have left to do is weld on the shock tabs and im done with the rear



and here's the line distributor from clayton, i salvaged the lines from the old 35.
