The rear should be done Saturday. Looks like our Tuttle Creek trip is getting delayed, hopefullly just long enough to get the lift in. I'll get some trail pics of the jeep flexing.

Its been a slow build with some hold backs, but I can't wait to get it done. I'll try to take some pictures of the existing parts vs. the new parts. I've also been taking a hard look at Savvy's parts, making me wish I would have been a dedicated Jeep Forum reader prior to purchasing certain parts.... that and starting with a stock rig vs. the jumbled mess I have!

Tuttle Creek?

Have you made it to Tuttle Creek yet? I'm there from time to time. I'd like to at least see pics of this thing on the trail!

Just after I got most of my parts on the Jeep I took a new job in Denver. I will get some pictures updated on Photo bucket and add my posts. The HP D30 didn't turn out for me, so I'm in search of a new one. It sounds like I should get an airlocker for it, gear in, and cromoly shafts...but that's going to have to wait. I'm finding that my 4.56 gears (we think) and 35's combined with the NV4500's not-so-close ratios between 3, 4, and 5 don't love the I-70 moutain climb.

There's nothing uploaded to that album, dude. Coming up blank...try reuploading them.

This looks like a pretty rad project. Been looking at all kinds of LCoG stuff lately and I may go this route in the future. Best of luck to you!

Try this one: Pictures by japete01 - Photobucket

LCG is really the way to go. You can thank MisFit7 and JakeAss for pushing me to head that direction. I took a 3 1/2 inch drop and the thing handles like a go-kart now, and my overall clearance was reduced by 2 inches or so. I wish I could do a flat skid.

Nice looking rig man! I've not seen too many guys from Nebraska on these boards. Then again, I've done more lurking than anything before I finally joined.

Thanks man. I'm pretty happy with the build and how everything turned out. I did find that CO can't emissions test tires sizes above 34"..... I may have to leave the Jeep titled in my Dad's name in NE.

Hop on craigslist and procure some emmissions tires. Find someone's old used up tbirds or swampers. Also, if you check local 4x4 clubs, I'm told that sometimes people play musical wheels with smaller used up tires just so everyone can pass emissions. I mean, you only need them for a day or so!

Good thing I live in Ohio where you can pretty much drive whatever you want no matter what size or how beat up!
