Well I've turned the mud flaps around. Much better. Today I ordered my auto-pal headlights and putco harness.

well lets see in the last week and a half I replaced the transfer case chain and shift fork , the radiator and trans cooler hoses and installed my front lokka locker. unfortunately I did not take any pics. next on the list is to install my ruff stuff frame reinforcements , do the aw4 1-2 shift mod and install my 30 inch led light bar as soon as it comes in . I have also been pondering ideas of building a spare tire carrier.

Rubi- I just found your build thread link. I am working on my son's '90 XJ, doing homemade LAs, etc. First time with it, and I didn't measure everything properly. I was wondering if you would post up a pic of your springs, from the sides, from over the top of the tire. Not flexed. I think I made the LA tubes too short, and I want to see the angle of your springs compared to the ones I have installed. I am using Rusty's 7" coils. Are your springs dead vertical or angled slightly forward? Appreciate your help.

My springs are straight up and down . Here is one from the front and one from over the tire. Hope this helps. Awesome build by the way

Awesome! Thanks very much. I'm not far off on my design. Could I coax you into one more favor??? Measure from the center of the bolt to the center of the bolt (OA length) of your upper arms. If you find yourself near the front of your rig, with nothing to do, and a tape in your hands!

Thank you, Sir!

Today I did the aw4 shift mod. The only thing to see is the switches I used. The one with the light is for the torque converter lock up and the other is for 1st,normal or 2nd second gear modes. I found the switches on Amazon cheap.
