Looks awesome man. Ha I remember when you got that dent in your rear corner in the Central parking lot I think haha.

So what camp ground are you staying at when you go to silver lake? Is there room on your site for another tent? I would pitch in some money of course...

Ahh I see, may the force be with you


As usual, I've been just stupid busy with one thing or another.

I have managed to get quite a bit done on the Jeep though:

-Replaced the water pump, lower radiator hose, and the mechanical fan clutch. And flushed the coolant system a few times.



-Installed a CB radio, Uniden 520XL, 4' Firestik, etc... I got a kit from RightChannelRadios.com. It was a good price and I was pretty happy with the service. To all those who are rocking the CB too, what channel do you usually 'cruise' on? if any.












-New ball joints, wheel bearings, steering stabilizer, Yukon TJ chromoly shafts, Tom Wood's CV driveshaft w/ new T-case yoke.



















Also heading to Silver Lake monday for a few days! It'll be nice to relax a bit.

I've also been keeping busy with a semi-jeep-related side project. I'm building some custom tool cabinets..

This is pretty much what they looked like when I got them..



I basically plan on restoring them and adding some custom mods (sound familiar?)

A little sneak peak of the direction im going with them..

I scored the shafts off of craigslist and just bought the seals (Napa #11800).

As for the placement of the seals, I wasn't feeling pulling the carrier lol so I just sort of popped them in where I saw fit.



We'll see how it goes as far as actually sealing the axle. It's been okay so far

Ok so you basically just used the stock placement of the one in the CAD and added a tube seal lol. I hope that works for ya. Lemme know how it goes because I want to make this upgrade before I install the aussie up there!

Yeah I guess so, I'll keep you updated. With the Tom Woods shaft the ride is super smooth. It didn't feel any different to have the front ds spinning all the time now.

Put in some reverse lights









I'm pretty happy with them.

Ended up putting another seal in the carrier for the TJ shafts..



Front Brakes: Drilled and slotted rotors, ceramic pads, new calipers (painted red of course)





Monstalined my hardtop



I really like the finish on this stuff

Wired in the lights for the trailer that im bringing back up to school



Installed Corbeau 2" 3-point retractable harnesses





Finished my cabinets! And yes, that red is the factory color of my Jeep.



Delivered the cabinets to my new shop out in Fenton and monstalined the top of the workbenches and two drawers that I will be making a desk with.
