Looks good. Are you still running the stock diff cover? Let us know if you have any problems with the track bar contacting the diff. That concern is the only thing keeping me from ordering it instead if the Currie.

Yeah i still have my stock diff cover for now. It seems to have a good amount of room , ill snap a pic today. The only issue i had was the frame end bolt. Its a 5/8in bolt, so i had to drill out the hole. The axle end is 1/2 inch. I had more problems getting the stock tbar off than i did getting the MC bar on.

Got my rear springs on today. Had some issues with the rear track bar and the OME bracket i got, so im on the hunt for a new rear tbar. Had some issues getting my drivers side shock mounted on the bottem also. Luckily i had a welder, had to cut open the stock rear tb bracket so i got to weld in back together. Here are some pics (also a couple of the clearance the MC front tbar provides from the diff)

Got the front end aligned, so its drivable now. Need to crawl under it tomorrow and so some work. Front TB needs tightened up, rear axle needs pulled forward and squared up, and i need to measure and cut down my antirock and rear swaybar links.

Officially part of the 33s club! Got my wheels and tires mounted today, and got my rear upper control arms installed correctly, and got the axle squared away (hopefully). Need to take it for a spin to see if I have anymore vibes. Didn't get over 25mph on the way home, so I'm not sure if I I got the pinion angle set right or not. I have the front pinion set good, so I'm gonna wait to do the front uppers. Been spending alot of money on the Jeep in the last couple weeks, my bank account needs to recoup. I still need to get my bumpstops installed. Wont be doing any wheeling till my rear track bar comes in. I almost think I should have just bought the Metalcloak lift kit..the only things I have that aren't MC are my springs and antirock.

Took a couple of poser pics to see how it flexes out, and i was pretty impressed. I still have 3-4 inches between the tire and the fender. Still need to get the rear axle centered, and hopefully i will be able to get enough room between the spring perch and the shock to get my pinion angle set correctly. Pics for funsies.

Got the drivline reset this morning, so hopefully my vibes are gone. Im going to start saving for a SYE and new DS, so when i get back to the states next year, I can get my MML put on and do a tummy tuck. I'm starting my search for some good spwing compressors, so I can take my springs out without dismantling my entire suspension, and get my bumpstops installed. Hopefully my MC rear trackbar will shop up next week, so I can get it put on and go test everything out.

So I still have some vibes between 20 and 30mph, but they seem to go away after that. Been looking at the PSC DeFenders pretty hard here lately, so I put in a photoshop request and here is the result. I think I see some DeFenders in my future.

Picked up a v8 ZJ tie rod yesterday, along with a new stock TJ drag link for $25..just need to replace one of the tie rod ends before I install it. I put the washer back on my skidplate to drop the tcase some..hopefully it will allieviate some of my vibes. Still waiting for my rear TB to ship. Once that comes in, GOnna get it installed, and try to put the MML on again. Gota buddy thats installing TnT long arms on his XJ..gota say they are awesome..makes me want long arms (even tho I dont need them).

Got the tie rod end for my ZJ tie rod today. Took the old end off, as well as the old drag link. Cleaned them up a bit, and I'm putting a coat of flat black rustoleum spray paint on just to make it look a little nicer. For $43, my steering will be ready for 35s when the time comes.

Thanks for your service!!!! I sometimes wish I had joined when I was younger. What kind of problems are you having installing the MML? Read my build thread about installing a SYE/CV driveshaft on a Jeep with a lift over 2".
