I could fix the tub, it needed panels they would run me 600$ so I picked up a 95 wrangler tub (that ill convert to a cj7 look alike tub )for 300$ that needs minor repairs nothing a 100$ cant fix. This yellow tub has good floor boards and ill give the yellow tub away when I'm all done.

The white Yj tub will get fresh yellow paint!

Ok shocks!!!!' Who wants to tell me what to buy. Im leaning towards 400-600 for all 4

Rancho 9000xl is what I'm thinking but there are other good shocks on the market,

Some good looking shocks that perform well and have a reservoir would be nice!

What should I buy?

The Dana 20 needed a new front output bearing and seal. So we rebuilt the whole thing. Christine dougherty did most the work again.

Here is the intermittary gear before and after. She Got all the needle bearings In easily.

This was our first gear box rebuild of any kind, we did good nothing held us up, things went smoothly, good instructions is a must and carful disassembly with all parts laid out Nicely helped.

Needed to buy a small bearing separator though.

Replaced the cover gasket on the t18 and changed the mushroom vent to a barbed fitting for vacuum hose to run to higher location for water proofing.

Well my friend backed out on the job so I bought a miller 211 auto set. I started the project with the help of my wife. We are keeping it low as posible and stretching the front 3 inches and the back 6 or so.

I relief cut the tab on the steering gear box, so the bumper would fit on, I used MORE steering box breach that moves the box forward 2 inches.

I have it all tacked up and ready for mock up.

Mocked up the front all went fairly smooth.

I tried to keep it as low as posible, but I made it to low, so I added some height back into the spring hangers.
