I love this WJ. I want this WJ. But if it gets stolen, it wasn't me.

Looks awesome man!

LOL, yeah, I knew someone would say that, but I had the bolts all torqued (all 10 of them) and it was just a tad, spreading them was easier/faster .

Edit: G- I hope I didn't just void my warranty .

I am pretty sure it does. Order another one so you have a warranty, in the mean time, I will come get that one.

Jeep looks great.

They reinforce the axle Cs not the knuckles themselves, got them from Offroad Evolution: here.

Good work

Glad to see some parts still working right !!!
Good work men !! Just now I see your build thread.
I did change the radiator support, and let me tell you, is a real PITA; mine was worst than yours, thanks a honda I climb up.
But good work !!
Still with alignment problems.
I remember when change my Dana 44A , and have to pass by the stealer to get it, (3 years ago, can't find it used)

Looking very good. I like the fact that you trussed your axles before you did anything else. A lot of people don't think about that.

I can't wait to see what you do next.
