well i ordered frame stiffeners from HD offroad. i need them #1 because theyre a good idea and, #2 i need a sturdy base to brace my rocker replacement to. which will hopefully happen in the next few weeks if i find time. nothing else new other than i NEED to replace my leaf bushings. they could not be more shot. at times i can feel the entire axle shift while im driving. probably not the safest thing in the world

haha thanks taylor. so kind of you to post me nearly getting stuck because of my drop brackets. but you forgot this one:




yes this is what ive been doing to the jeep. i did the 2x6 rockers even with the door sills. so i had to cut about 2" off the doors. then i didnt like how the rockers didnt stick out much for door protection. so i cut the old outer tubes off of my old JCR sliders and welded them to the new rockers. worked out perfectly.

while i was at it i did the cut n fold in the rear.

replacing the rear leaf bushings was obviously something that was LONG overdue. it clunked just a tad. but much better now.

just for kicks i also took off the roof rack.

soon i will be making myself a new t-case skidplate as i bent my stock one and dont want to deal with trying to bend it back. just have to think about what style to make it, if i want to raise the t-case a bit first etc...

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

heres the finished t-case skid:





something i just threw together over the past two days. overall im happy with it. we shall see how well it holds up. has to be better than the stock one. this one is held on with 9 fairly large self tappers along with a few tack welds. its all 3/16" plate.

i recently bought some parts for a WJ knuckle swap. the knuckles, calipers, and brackets. i also began collecting the other necessary parts. i bought JKS hub spacers and new Timken hub bearings for an 01 XJ. next up is ball joints. i am on the fence about getting the spicer ones or going for the synergy ones. the cost difference is pretty significant there

now i could probably get away with re-using my existing steering and just adjusting it out a bit but new bungs and tube isnt too much more. ill probably get a beefier tie rod as my 1.5"x0.25" wall DOM is bent. i was thinking 1.75"X 3/8" wall DOM.

im even toying with the idea of throwing a real locker in the dana 30 soon. having the truetrac up front has begun to show its weakness in some areas.

BUT ultimately this is a lot of money for a D30...

It is a lot of money in a 30, but it will be worth it. My 30 is relatively stock other than a Lock Right and steering, and I bet on it fairly hard with 35's. Also, the T case skid looks good man!

thanks man.

i want to be able to run 35's. im not even locked up front and i already have a PSC steering box ported for hydro assist too. i guess i COULD run them now. but id really like alloys and a truss, just to be sure. and i need a beefy cover. i only have a rock ring due to tie rod clearance.

Thanks man. Appreciate it.

In other news I just bought a grizzly locker for the D30 and will be buying a set of bilstein 7100 12" short bodies.
