looks AWESOME man. I can't wait to do my cage. I think I'm going to finally pick up a bender and do my own after my deployment. I was going to have a local shop do it, but f- it.... why not do it myself.

It's looking good. By mid week next week I will have 3-4 offer letters in hand and just need to pick the best one. I've been jumping through hoops to get all that in place so quickly though.

axles are just going to sit here for over a year. Do you want them? I'll meet you halfway to hand them off.

3/4 out of a '79 F-150. Missing front passenger side shaft, but I was just going to upgrade it. I just paid $320. . . so, make an offer. If not, I'll just slide them under the parts XJ in the garage and build them up when I get back.

awesome... so you're doing a 1 ton D60 on the front? Then what in the rear? 14 bolt ?

I'll probably just hold on to these axles for now and stash them in the shed until I get back.

Hey, do you have any need for a parts XJ? It's a '92, the motor and trans work fine. I just picked it up to have for spare parts when I break **** on the HEEP, but the wife wants to be able to park her van in the garage while I'm gone, so I think I'm just going to get rid of it. I paid $400 for it and I'll let it go cheap.

the 60 he has now for me is for the rear. i gotta wait on a front one to match it. and i dont really need another jeep, pretty much everything on mine is non-stock anyway lol, but one of my friends was looking into a cherokee just to offroad in so ill let him know that you have one up for grabs. depending on how much money he has he might end up taking those axles from ya if you let him

Ok, the D30 in the HEEP needs the pinion bearings replaced. SO, we could do it a few different ways. I could leave the good D30 under the parts XJ (only half connected right now....just enough to get it loaded onto a trailer and get it to my house) or I could swap the D30's like I was going to and put the one that needs the bearings under the parts Jeep and then give him a good deal on the other axles..... or any combination of the above.... just let me know what he wants. I can borrow a trailer to help deliver it or we could work on it here at my place to get it road worthy and he could drive it home. It is going to need a new battery, but I jumped it and ran it to get it on the trailer and move it around at my place. The A/C compressor was seized when the guy that I bought it off of got it, but he sprayed it with WD40 and it's good now. I'm not sure if the A/C works or anything though.

Hey, the other option would be for your buddy to buy BOTH of my XJ's and I'll just pick something else up when I get back from my deployment.
