Been a super busy week, hopefully will be picking up a new dana 30 and a Ford 8.8 later this up coming weekend. I am going to re-gear to 4.88's as I am now in the market for 35's. My buddy has a great deal on a set.

So for ****s and giggles I threw the 35s on. The power loss was not really that much more noticeable than the 33s until I hit the freeway. Re-gear will be coming soon as I would really like to bring back a little gas mileage and power.

I put rear TJ flares on, I just need to do the fronts now. No rubbing in back, the front flares rub pretty hard but no fender contact still have room between fender and tire. Hoping the front TJ flares dont rub when I put them on but we will see.

Poser shotss

Im jealous of your set up! I need to get my Jeep re-geared and get an 8.8 under it so I can not worry about the 35 taking a crap.However I am stoked to go wheeling on them! I am still waiting on my 33s to sell, got a couple offers but im not willing to give them away so we will see if they go on my toyota or not..

I am choosing to not install the gears myself.... I'm going with some guys from a local group I'm in. I will be swapping the axle myself, I am just nervous to set up gears. I don't want to do it myself mess up and then end up paying someone anyway. I hope to learn how to do it some day though, as this will be the first time someone else has ever worked on my stuff (other than alignments). I am a believer in doing it yourself but with gears id rather lay liabilty on someone else...

I'm excited to get it done!

Well its been a while since of updated, very few changes.

Ive been wheeling and doing much harder stuff now and itching to do more and taking virgin wheelers wheeling





Max Flex?


Trail damage




Ive got a video of me going up this Ill have to see if I cant get it from my buddies computer


Messing around


Looking at a triple black diamond trail


Playing hard and working hard the next theres over 2000 pounds in that little trailer....


Added another OBA hook up so I can run two lines at the same time.






Finally got progress done on my axles


Self taught welder...




Dana 30 thats getting built


Might use these shafts one day solid one peice shafts from a ZJ with ABS so it has the larger U-joints. However my two peice shafts I currently have in my jeep already use the larger U-joint I might just see how long it takes a shaft to break


Currently trying to look into cage add on's anyone know any good stuff?
