Not a bad idea... I havent seen those mentioned in a while. My biggest thing about getting an antirock is the fact you don't have to disconnect it everytime you go wheeling. Thats what made me just ditch the stock one. Im gonna look into it though because I doubt I can afford an antirock in reality.
Did some crawlin at a hill climb a buddy of mine made at his house. Crawled right up it dry. It poured down rain all night and we hit it again and no one made it. I broke a short side inner shaft on my 44 already. Have to find a J10 axle for a replacement or order a custom made chromo from dutchman for 190....
Ohh and if you have a Youtube account we would really appreciate a subscription to our club channel!
Was going to order the Novak cable shifter but decided to try to fab up something on my own before I dropped $180 on that. Bought two 7/16 rod ends from mcmastercarr, used a chevy t case tab which points up instead of down like the jeep tabs and then had to make a new tab for the shifter lever, lengthed that one by an inch or so and clocked it to be parallel to the ground at 2wd. It shifts great now, it went into 4 lo so easily I thought it was broken. I've never been able to just glide it into 4 lo, I have always had to yank as hard as I could on the shifter. I'd say I came out better with this costing $15 than the $180 from novak.
Got solid diff covers in for me and some guys in my club, got mine for the 44 and 8.8. Also got some tube inserts in to make new links for the rear lowers. Replacing the links I have now that are from a TJ Rubicon Express long arm kit with 2" .25 wall dom and Currie Johnny Joints. Got new heims for one of my uppers as well thats shot.
Been having electrical problems, the VIC was resetting every time I started the Jeep among other things. Threw in a yellow top a buddy had laying around and its been running great. Going to get a Diehard Platinum next time they have a sale. I also got the
44 solid cover on, pulled my broken 44 shaft and measured it to order a new chromo. I replaced a heim in my trackbar that was shot and it got rid of a clunk in the front end, and I also cleaned out my rear brake pads and sanded them down and that got rid of a grinding noise I had when braking.
Also unrelated to my Jeep, but our club got some representation in this weeks episode of Dirt Every Day. We sent a shirt to Petersons and what do you know!
Just built new links for the rear with johnny joints on both ends. Also got a dutchman chromo for the front inner shaft I broke. I've got some Nitro 300m ujoints on the way I got for a good price too. After I get the ujoints and put the shaft in Im going to start building new coil posts for the rear with bumpstops and building shock hoops.
I need to win the freaking lottery or something... maybe getting out of college and getting a real job would suffice but GOD this jeep is milking me. I was just outside taking measurements trying to figure out how to mount a sway bar up front and looked down and thought my u joint looked a little funny on the passenger side. The outer shaft is broken off in the hub. I haven't put it in 4 since I broke the driver side shaft so I guess I took them both out then. I guess all my money that I was gonna use for the bumper, new rear shocks, and the speedway engineering sway bar is gonna go to getting the other 3 chromo shafts.
