I was tired of the polished rims, so I did something about it.

I think it looks much better now. I've always liked canyons. Just have a few loose ends to tire up and it is ready to load on the trailer.

Wow, I have just completely abandoned thus thread lately.

The TJ did great at coal creek. Kept up everywhere we went like a champ. No breakages. Didn't get many pictures, but I'll try to get some uploaded.

I'm planning on running my new pitbull rockers on the LJ for the October coal creek run, which means I will have a spare set of 35" MTZs sitting around. You know what that means!

In preparation of the tire upgrade, I have ordered some new parts.

I ordered 3.5" rear Metalcloak coil springs using my discount from tjotm and their free shipping sale. $89 shipped to my door. Moving the 2" coil spacers currently in the rear to the front, combining then with the sagged 2.5" RC coils. Hopefully the Jeep will sit somewhat level. My dad complained about not having enough ground clearance on the last trip, so the extra lift and bigger tires should fix that problem.

Found a great deal on some USA standard chromolly front inner axle shafts. $120 shipped for both sides. Also ordered durasolid outers (basically rebranded Yukon shafts) for $120 shipped, and Spicer 760 u joints for $70 shipped. Brand new front chromos for $310. I can provide links if any of you other cheapos care.

Ordered Skyjacker hydro shocks for 4" lift for $140 shipped. Rough country rear track bar relocation bracket and lower shock relocation brackets for $50 shipped. I went for the lower shock brackets because I have clearance issues with the coil buckets and I don't want to cut the buckets since the current rear axle will disappear after the stretch.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on those new coil springs.

If they are as high quality as their fenders then I will be very impressed with them.

Ask and ye shall recieve.

Dana 30/44 outers:

http://www.durasolid.com/part-dana-4...plines-45.aspx

For the USA standard inners, the website to order from is overstockdiffparts, and they are an affiliate of Randys Ring and Pinion. When you order from overstock, the order goes staight to RR&P. The emails I recieved (order confirmation, shipping confirmation, etc.) all came from RR&P. The above links can no longer be found through the main page of the website. However, the direct links still work, and the items can still be added to the cart and purchased. It only took 3 days for the shafts to arrive at my door.

I am no expert on shafts, but the USA standard shafts appear to be quality. They look just like the Ten Factory safts I have in my LJ. I have not yet recieved the durasolid outers as I just ordered them last night. I will comment on those later, but from what I've read they are Yukon shafts under a different brand name.
