Mounting the RC disco storage pegs up here keeps them out of the way while the suspension cycles:

I'm pretty much ready for the first wheeling trip of 2012. This weekend, I'll be fixing a broken nutsert in my transfer case skid and I'm ready to roll. I'm so looking forward to it!

Looks like I may very well make it to URE again May 4th. A locker (Aussie or Spartan, haven't decided yet) is in order before this trip, as is a Riddler cover for the front.

I'm sure I can find some other stuff to spend your money on if you want me to!


From what I can tell Aussie lockers are cheaper than Spartan lockers right now. Cheapest I have found the Spartan for is $310.

Northridge4x4 has the Aussie for $260 w/ free shipping:

And I recommend the Solid cover over the Riddler cover. The Riddler cover is overkill for the kind of wheeling we do, creates clearance problems if you ever go to a lower lift, and is more expensive than the solid cover. Solid cover is $65 straight from Solid Axle, vs ~$110 for the Riddler.

Bought the Solid cover from knowwhere2jeep.com. . . . even talked them out of the shipping I love being in sales. . . .

Anyway, baseline4x4 has the Spartan for $259 (shown when you add it to cart, it's normally $310). So I'm not sure whether to get Aussie or Spartan. I understand the springs in the Spartan are of larger diameter, as well as the cross pin being of stronger construction. I'm still "mulling" it over, but I think the Spartan will be the choice when I go for it around mid-month.

I'll be doing a write-up when I go to install it, so look out for that if anyone is interested!

Thanks man!

I was on the fence between MCE's and Xenons before I sprang for the latter. . . . I'm really happy with my decision.

I'll have to see if they start to droop though. I'll be pissed if they do, but I hear Xenon is good about replacing them if they start to get ugly
