Finally a quick update. Got my kitchen 99% done after gutting it to the studs. Then spent too much time and money on a Civic daily driver (40 MPG) I can get back to the Jeep.

I'm selling the front and rear bumpers I built to my friend. New bumpers will be save weight and improve the approach and departure angles.



Also started stripping down the HP30. Going to get 4.88s, ARB, new ball joints, Currie JJ housing kit, control arm skids, raised sway bar mounts to flip the tie rod, and a Riddler cover.



Should be ordering the parts Friday.

My father and I built a case spreader for the ARB installs


Raised swaybar mounts to flip the tierod


Notched the housing for added oil drainage.


And finally 4.88s and the ARB. Still need to press on the new bearings but the pattern came out mint. Also need to spread the housing and add more preload.


Should be ordering the gears and ARB for the rear in another couple weeks, then all that is left is outboarding the rear shocks.

A few updates. Got the Currie/Savvy steering, rear gears and ARB, Brake Wizard ebrake brackets, and Ten Factory shafts front and rear. I was hoping for Superiors, but couldn't find them in stock anywhere and got tired of waiting.





Building the rear end next week, then doing the upper rear perches and outboarding the shocks.

Love the build. I was wondering how the montaliner is. Does it help against the heat from the engine at all? I'm thinking of doing my Cherokee, but i'm not sure if it would let too much heat through the floor and cook me.

I did the Monstaliner a few years ago and its holding up great. If you are removing the carpet to line the floor it will probably be hotter. You might want to try something like lizard skin. People use it on hot rods. Maybe you can monstaline over it?? http://www.lizardskin.com/

Sweet! I love the look of a Monstalined floor and think that sounds like a great route. I never heard of lizard skin before, but I'll be looking into it more.

Added drainage notches (That is the bottom).


Rear ARB and gears installed. Need to spread the housing and add more preload, seals etc.


Also just ordered 10" travel Bilsteins for the rear.

Updates:

Rear brakelines. Added a bracket to support the right side afterward


Genright relocated upper spring perches, Currie bumpstops, rear disk conversion with flipped calipers (Brake Wizard e-brake brackets)


Outboarded 10" travel Bilsteins


Scored a set of used MCE Flat fenders. Mocked up. Still need to install the LED turn signals.


I started breaking in the gears last night with a couple short drives and long cool offs.

Whats left:

Wire the compressor and mount the switches

swap my JKS rear trackbar for the new Savvy trackbar (JKS hits the crossmember, POS)

add turn signals

build new bumper and install winch

Rust proofing and undercoating

wheel

Thanks, it was a 95 M3. I just sold it because I'm buying back the same 66 Chevy C10 my Father had when I was a kid. Doing a frame off restoration on that after the Jeep is "done".

Some updates.

Gears are just about broken in. Changing the gear oil tonight. Air lockers hooked up and tested. MCE flat fenders installed. Added stainless hardware to the sliders. New Speedo gear, installed the new Savvy rear trackbar.

Patched some rust
