So far it's been fine with the little bit of wheelin it's done, but haven't done any serious rock crawling or had a tire wedged down in a hole.

Great to see it in action! Have you done anything else to it since the last build update?

Yes, added some stickers for more hp The next real mods will be rear shocks and make the doors removable, hopefully by the local topless day event coming up.





Here's a quick video from Jeep Beach in the "log trap". It was freakin rough before they added some more dirt in it, you can also see how bouncy it was w/o rear shocks. Sorry for the crappy resolution, it was shot on a iphone 4s but when I sent it to my old iphone to upload the quality got crappy

I know they're simple, just trying to figure out how to fit my temporary shifters - any closeups of your twin sticks? I know they're on the opposite side but I'm trying to figure out where to fit a small plate for the pivot point.

Forgot that you retained the stock cast shifter doodad. I had to cut mine off.

Been beating a dead horse with this one, trying to get my front driveshaft to work without binding up. If you get time and you're bored, could you slap an angle finder on the d/s, along with pinion angle and caster?

I know, a lot to ask. I'm using a shortened stocker but it's a double cardan so it's binding up super fast, but I noticed even at the axle side it hits the yoke pretty quick. I could get more pinion angle but I need the caster just as badly.

Been doing anything lately?

I'll try and get you some pics this weekend. I wasn't able to use the CV shaft on the front of mine. Haven't really done anything with it lately, had some unexpected bills pop up and kinda killed any jeep money.
