So, let's get this build thread going somewhere. I miss it having updates!!

How are those shocks treating you? I think I'm going to need new ones soon and might at well get in on that whole 5100 fanboy extravaganza.

The Bilstien 5100's are awesome. A very nice riding shock. Very happy I made the switch.
Its been a while since some good updates. Havent had much time at, barley have any time to drop the top and enjoy the Jeep.

Bulb keeps going on and off while driving. Checked them, all appear to be tight in the socket. Not sure if I need a new bulb or not.

Also noticed the drivers side axle tube is slowly leaking onto the knuckle. Any one know if Superiors Axle Tube Seals will seal the leak?

Sounds like the perfect time to do the LED upgrade.

No they will not, they just keep crap from getting in.

Need to replace the inner axle seals. Did mine just a few weeks ago, not a bad job to do the seals just time consuming as you have to pull the shafts and carrier.

And not that it's necessarily your problem, but mine started leaking, just the drivers side because I had a u-joint missing a bearing cap leading to excessive play with the axle shaft, wearing out the seal. Also once you jump in to replace the seal, do both while your in there.

I'm thinking about upgrading to Blistein 5100s also. I noticed you have a 1-1/4" spacer on top of the 4" suspension. Do you think I could run a 3/4" or 1" spacer on top of my 4" suspension with short arms?

Yes, I ran the spacers with my short arm kit.
