Cool. Which bumper? The AtoZ base, or the Swag off road one? Savvy has been good to me, and their stuff it great!

Just read your build thread after seeing your post elsewhere about your cage. Do you know if AtoZ corrected/changed the angle of the A-pillar bars to match the TJ windshield pitch?

Hey. I don't know if they changed anything. You should give Zach a call if you are considering his kit. Zach is a great guy, and has great customer service. The kit is a pretty good price, but it's a generic kit for YJs and TJs. That means it takes a fair amount of work to make it fit. i would consider just buying a tube bender, notcher, and the DOM after doing all the work I had to. I really like this kit also. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ba...-cage-1076451/

Bought a lock box from Jeep outfitters. It's pretty solid, but was a pain to get it from them. Don't be in a hurry to get it, and I would call to order vs. there website which doesn't work worth beans.



I replaced the factory front drive shaft with a Tom Woods. The stock shaft had issues at the splines.

I picked up a small 6.5 Kicker sub, and just built a box that fits in the foot well of the back (the side that doesn't have a seat). It will provide more flat area for the dogs. The cheap-o sub I put in the back will go away since it doesn't sound very good now. I'm working on a storage trunk for behind the rear seat. It will be open to the rear door, so once that is locked it will be secure.

In the near future. Outboarding the rear shocks, spring bucket relocation, longer front shock towers and shocks.

Hey Benderff, great build and great Jeep. But I wanted to ask you a question. As a Combat Veteran and maybe a little more paranoid person than most, but do you not worry about showing your license plate, your address, the street you live on and the state??? I mean all that info out there just floating around makes me think you dont even think about the crazies out there.

Sorry bro, I didnt mean to get off subject or Hi-Jack your thread, but I think youre giving way too much personal info on you and yours......

I did notice some vibes. I need to adjust my Castor which will help my pinion as well. I had the spicer no maintance u-joints put in this shaft. Less of a mess, and they seem to be easier to work with vs. the Tom's u-joints. The shaft is quality.

Thanks for your concern. We have something in common. Personal info is very easy to get on-line just from normal use. If we want to find someone it's pretty easy these days. You are right I don't need to make it any easier. I would like to think having two dogs that speak German, and a few other advantages weight in our favor.

Excellent build. Very nice jeep!!!
I will be using your build as a reference tool. Might hit you up with some questions here and there.

Thanks! I'm still learning myself, but I'm happy to help if I can.

I sold my hardtop. It was getting beat up. I was looking to loose some weight, and I was sick of storing it in the summer. Replaced the upper front arms with some Curries, the old ones where a little to long for setting the pinion angle with a HP D30. Lower Currie arms on the way for the front now. Looking to finally outboard the rear shocks and line up the spring buckets. Then I am going to build a new tire carrier. I want to do a fold down style, and keep the rear mounts for the roof rack.

Picked up a Kongo cage off of Craigslist for dirt cheap. This will be great for trips. Cleaned it all up, and painted it. It's easy to take on and off by myself.

Stored when I don't need it.



Added a tab for the CB antenna.

Lower Currie arms arrived. Running lower and upper Currie arms and Currie springs with a belly up and a HP axle. I didn't even have to make a "why are my currie arms to short" thread.




I need to get to work on the stack of projects I have.
Speaker box (wheel well)
Secure storage box (behind 3rd seat)
Another HP D30 (Sleeved, Currie upper joints, Mini truss, OX)
WJ steering and brakes with the new D30
Outboarded rear shocks and spring relocation
Lower profile rear tire carrier and bumper.
