Btw, was going to rent Brink for you to watch (and me, love that movie haha) for helping me out with the LAs, couldn't find it, so I went to look on Amazon, ONE copy of Brink in VHS, $198.00!!!! Hahaha, so sorry man, couldn't come through on that one . Anyway, thanks again for the help.
no problem man....hope your build goes well. If you can find it at a good price, id really recommend using boxed tube fro your arms like Clayton does

and yeah...if i still had a VHS id HAVE to buy that. $198 bucks is a steal

Haha. I have a question for ya as well. When you put on your rear long arms did how did you bring the axle forward so you could adjust the arms and get the slip yoke totally back into the tcase? Or is it sticking out a little? Thanks

i pretty much just stuck with what Clayton recommends for the length settings on the arms. The yoke is out about 3/4'' at ride height from where it was stock. I have never had any issues with it wanting to slip out at full droop. There is no binding in the rear when fully drooped either so im thinking there is plenty of spline engagement left. ive never taken a measurement to see how much is still in the TC but im comfortable it will never drop out. the amount the yoke pulls out from the TC is really related to the amount of lift you are running rather than how far the axle is pushed back. I image i might be able to pull the yoke back into the TC maybe a 1/4'' or so by shortening the arms, but them id run into issues with the tires clearing the fenders..............so basically, dont worry about it. ive seen guys run 8.5'' lift on the WJ without dropping the shaft

I think the WJ is pissed at me for neglecting her. Went to get something out of the back seat and when I closed the door, the window fell straight down into the door.....had to use some camo duct tape to keep it up. Probably wont bother fixing it for a while. Ah, the beauty of having a DD hahahahaha

That's an awfully expensive copy of Despicable Me...

I texted the wife. Elias may like some movies for long trips. Only downfall is I have black cloth seats.

Haha. I like my cloth honestly! That and I'd rather spend money on other parts of the jeep! But then again, all leather would be nice...

How about you just sell me your WJ and be done with it. You won't even have to remove the head rests...

my wife is on her last week working nights at the hospital. Good for the family but its a pay cut since she wont get the overnight pay differential anymore. so if it becomes an issue it will be officially for sale. Shes actually coming around on letting me keep them both though. just gotta make sure we can afford it now

The pay cut will be worth it. My wife used to work nights at the hospital too, now i do. It sucks. I would love dvd seats for the kids.
