okay got the tail gate bar installed last week I also changed all the fluids front and rear differentials, tranny, transfer case and engine oil on Friday.
both differentials looked good. while I had the rear diff cover off I found out that that I have 307 gears. I live in the flat lands and don't have any troubles getting it up to 70mph but I do have the 6 cylinder. my question is if I upgrade to the 8.8 should try and stick with the 307 gearing? I don't think this thing is going to see any rock crawling unless I take it out of state mainly sand, a little mud and river washes around here. I would not consider this my DD but I like to drive it like it is on my days off. also I'm considering a 1'' MML would like to clock the TC and build a new tranny mount. I know all this will need be done before the 8.8 and the SYE im trying to figure out the order of things

Did you end up going with the 33s? It may seem ok now but you don't know what you are missing until you are geared properly. The easiest thing to do is find a front axle from a 4 cyl YJ. It will have 4.10s in it then you can find an 8.8 to match. Thats what I did and the difference was night and day. No more feathering the clutch...

sweet that seems to be the simplest way I was not finding an 8.8 geared in 307

I got so damn tired of the crappy OEM mirrors I had to replace them I ended up ordering the relocation bracket and the quadratec brand mirrors I could not be more happier with them




also the wife and kids are out of town for a week so my plan is to install my 1" raised motor mounts one day this weekend

well its been a trying few weeks my internal slave cylinder went out I wanted to upgrade to an external but could not get a used bell housing and a new one was like 250 bucks that job was a nightmare (pinched or pulled something in my back life sucked for a week) started the nutter bypass on a Wednesday after work didn't get that going until Friday another nightmare. I'm guessing the first set of wires I ran were parted somewhere in the insulation I checked them for continuity they rang good . on a positive note I was able to install a smittybuilt center console, new head unit and some new alpine 5.25 speakers in my sound bar . i ordered a "new" motorcraft 2150 today hope to go a head and order a HEI dizzy tomorrow if i can get approval from the finance department.







and this was sitting on the door step today

A little tip for dealing with the finance dept.
These things are never "wants"
They are "needs"! You wouldn't feel comfortable driving your family around in an unreliable/unsafe/(insert bad term here) Jeep would you?
Another one of my favorites is"well I cant do this without doing that or the whole thing is pointless."

I too installed this louver kit from PCS. It really is a good investment, especially in the summer months. Did you paint yours or get it in the powdercoat version? I didn't know if you were talking about painting the louver or underneath it.
