Just looked them up, looks like some well built parts. I nearly opted for ruff stuff covers however I heard a lot of good things about Solid. An hour after I notified them of the wrong cover, they shipped out the correct one. Hows the YJ coming?

Little by little this Jeep is coming together.
Installed YJ Wrangler front brake lines, they go nicely with the JK Wrangler shocks.


I decided weld on larger mounting plates for the rock rails. I used my friends Hobart 220 mig with c-25 gas. The basic rail is complete, I have a few more holes to drill before I can mount them. Lastly, I still plan on welding on an outer leg to use as a step/tree pivot point.



Couple more pictures-


Il get pictures of the solid diff covers and rock rails mounted up this week. Happy Jeepin.

Went Jeepin'






Not quite ready for the rock garden-


Drove 70 miles back with a broken drivers inner and outer d30 shaft. Time for 760x u-joints with full circle clips.

Rear u-bolt bump stop plates with one hockey puck works perfect. Countersunk the pucks with a dremel so the top of the bolt is flush with the puck base.
