I actually don't have pics. The Jeep's in our shop 30mi away. For some reason I just didn't take pics since it was inside. Hopefully I'll get it repaired by Wednesday and I'll get some pics then.

Put in the new Vista Pro radiator we got off eBay for $105. All I can say is it's pretty cheap, weighing alot lighter than the Mopar and no drain hole. We'll see how it holds up though. I MIGHT get around to taking pictures if it doesn't rain for the next 3 days. I really need to get my own camera. I'm tired of iPhone pictures.

The MML is finally on. All vibrations are gone and the pinion angle is much better than it was.

Here's some pics of the BL and the mounts. Definitly need rear control arms to push that wheelbase back.



The Jeep isn't really leaning over. My driveway just throws it off.



The mounts...



Photobucket does not want to cooperate right now...



The pinion angle...

3.07's are an abomination. I refuse to go up one road now due to the fact that I caused a traffic jam last time.

Only reason why I haven't put 33s on mine yet, 3.07 gear. FTMFL.

Looks great. Looks like you got a good list going on too.

Dug around and found some pics from back in November. (aka nothing's been done on the Jeep ) I always wanted to post these but just kept forgetting. I also have a couple GoPro's I'd love to upload and share.

Nothing big. A friend and I just went exploring one day.





A cool old barn we found. Also found a little home made trough above the ground that was coming from a spring. I'll see if I can get more pictures from my buddy.







Then some stock flex.



FYI that tire is about 1/2 foot off the ground. If only I had front swaybar disco's at that time...
