I had all of it out for the summer and decided only to put the front sections back in for winter because I liked the look of the back without it.

Just another small update; Yeah, I've been really bored lately.

Changed the sparks yesterday. Seems to run a little better, as they were pretty shot..



Also finally got the sound bar lights wired up



Hid the wires under the dash/carpet. Quick fix until it warms up.



And here's just a few pics of the "big storm" that came through Tuesday night/Wednesday. It wasn't as much as I wish it had been.





We got about 6-8 inches overnight. Had to throw it in 4x4 for some of the driveway stupid tires



Sorry for crappy quality, this was early the night the storm came in.



Kinda defeats the purpose of having a hard top..



Hopefully I'll be heading to the junkyard sometime this month. Getting a "new" hood and grille. Also going to try and find some decent springs from an S10, dakato, or something to the likes. Oh and did I hear someone say 8.8....

Time to get things rollin' for spring!

Your build is coming along. If you get an 8.8 out of a '96 or new Explorer you'll have disc and some come with 4.10's from the factory if you find one with the correct axle code. They also had a track lock carrier but I opted for the open to put a lunchbox locker in.

I say ditch the track bars. They only bind up the suspension and cause rougher ride. With the leaf springs you don't get the same lateral movement like coil spring suspensions. I haven't ran mine in years nor the sway bar but that's just me. It's just what you're comfortable with.

I have a jeep...and it is modified...I win.

That's what I thought too. If (and that's a big if) I go the 8.8 route, I would definitely try to find one with open 4.10's for the same reason you did. And ditch the track bars like you said, it just makes sense haha.
Thanks for reply!

I'd just like to add my two cents on track bars as I haven't heard these points raised. Track bars are perfectly fine if they are adjusted for your suspension changes. If you lift the jeep and don't lift the bottom bracket the track bar will pull your body down. Additionally, an unadjusted track bar will cause lateral force on your suspension as it flexes.

Of course many lift kits will give you the hardware to relocate your track bar for your lift. If everything is lining up right the track bar will have zero impact on your suspension and will be added, and arguably un needed, horizontal support for your body against the chasis.

Crap.... I was trying to upload an image of my trackbar relocation via this phone app and it uploaded a crap ton of pictures. Sorry everyone. Obviously I didn't want to upload this that many times.

It's all good about the pictures. Thanks for you input, I haven't heard that side of it before. So IIRC, if you have the relocation bracket it doesn't affect the axle/suspension travel at all? I can't believe no one mentioned this before haha.
