Thanks, Keith. Yeah this weekend would be great, when I found out it was member's weekend I got kinda mad that I had to go out of town... As far as wrench turning, I'm pretty set for the moment; seems you missed the hard part! I only have about 3 hours to work on the Jeep after I get home at night, so everything's taking a bit longer than I had hoped... But as soon as I get my upper control arm mounts drilled out the rest of the install should be cake... Just have to do both track bars, and all the upper arms, then reinstall both driveshafts...

When are you planning on sending MC your order? You'll be shocked how much clearance those fenders give you... Now that I've got the lift on, I'm hating my 33's more than ever; if my axles could handle it, 37's would fill that hole nicely. With the lift on your rig it'll be crazy!

OK, got the rear upper and lower control arms done tonight, as well as reinstalling both driveshafts... Which just leaves the track bars and front upper control arms! Slowly, ever so slowly, this thing is becoming drivable again...

Get pics when it is all done... Time to find a new axle for that front so you can run those 37"s. I would say get the parts over time, and wait till it is time to trash the 33"s before regearing.

See, the problem there is extreme amounts of money... It'll be at least a year or two before I have enough money to replace the front axle; even a JK Rubicon axle is crazy expensive. There are too many other things I could do to my Jeep in the time being to make it better on the trail; gears and 35's being among them. The vast majority of obstacles can be cleared with 35's, lockers, and good driving. As much as I want the 37's, the practical side of me knows that I really don't need them, and I'd be making myself less trail-worthy by waiting so long to get money for a mod I really don't need. That will come, but pretty much after everything else I want to do...

Unless anyone knows where to pick up a JK 44 or Dana 60 for cheap?

ahh.... so you see the real reasons why 37"s are stupid compared to 35"s. Nice. I know of a front d60 with 4.10 and drums. It can be yours for a low price, but it would need to be rebuilt. There is a ford here in the classified section with great axles for $400. You would need to rebuild axles before throwing them in there.

I say stick with the 35"s idea, and just make sure you get things tucked up (like you already plan).

Definitely. As I've seen Blaine say before, if you spend the money to do 37's right, you're spending the money to get 40's. And I'm not about to do something unless I do it right. Ultimately I'm shooting for something ridiculously expensive and awesome like Dynatrac hi-clearance 60's... But at $5500 for just the front, that won't be anytime soon!

Measured my belly height today, with the stock skid... sitting at 16.5... Which means that a flat skid (read - Savvy) would put me up to 20.5, which is pretty respectable. I hope they come out with that TT sometime in Q1 of 2010, cause I'm feeling very ... exposed ... having the stock skid and no engine skid. If Savvy weren't coming out with theirs I would have dropped the money on a Rokmen skid a while ago.

Thanks, they're the 4". 6" just seemed goofy to me, even if I could take them off on the trail. With the 4" I find I don't usually need to.

No I didn't; last show I went to at JPJ was Jimmy Buffett. That was a great show... Didn't even know Phish was playing! I was under my Jeep all weekend anyway though. You a Cville Jeeper?

So I spent more money on the Jeep today...

Realized I hadn't thought ahead and figured out what I was going to do for my speedometer after installing the JBC kit. I thought about taking it to the dealer for them to flash my computer, but a few things held me back:

1. I don't trust the Jeep dealer in Charlottesville. They're a bunch of thieves and hacks. Seriously, don't go anywhere near there. They messed something up on my Jeep and I haven't even gone back to pick up the new PARTS because I hate them so much.

2. With the regear coming in the next two months or so, and the new tires right after, I'd have to fix it two more times... might as well spend the money once and be done with it.

I was going to get the Dakota Digital kit. $80 sounded like a decent plan to fix the speedo. But then I got an email back from John at JBC, who said that the Superlift kit, while more expensive ($215), might be a bit better. So after much deliberation, I was convinced that I've spent enough money already, so....


















Why not spend a little more?

Ordered the Superlift kit, should be here monday or tuesday.

Let us know how the digital kit works out. I hate dealerships just because most of them prey on innocent but ignorant people. We have a decent Jeep dealership about 10 minutes from my house, and they are good. I would actually take it the 45 minute drive to go to the place where we bought my mom's van and my sisters car, but they only do chrysler, ponitac, buick, gmc, and dodge. I don't think they do Jeep.

Are you having fun spending money? I think you are just finally glad you areing being hunkered down by the ex... Just find a play friend, not a wife. I hear that is almost always a terrible mod (not always thought).

Haha yeah, the money's going out as fast as it's coming in... Still have some left for a bit more Savviness to come in the next few weeks though. It's nice not having anybody ***** at me when I spend money on the Jeep. For the moment, as long as I can pay bills, the rest I get to play with!

That's the rough thing about dealerships... When I was in college there was a great dealership, and all the guys who worked there were true Jeep guys... I'd drive the 2.5 hours back there if they hadn't bought it in that whole financial struggle last year...

Well, finally got everything done... Almost. (still have to recalibrate my speedo, torque a bolt here and there, but... that hardly counts)

Maybe it's just me being OCD about getting everything right, but... While taking measurements to install my JKS rear track bar, I saw that my measurement on the passenger side was 1/2" more than the driver's side. So the axle is shifted 1/4" to the passenger side. I tried using ratchet straps to correct this, and no matter how hard I crank on the strap, it just. does. not. move.

For the moment, I've just installed the track bar with the axle off center. Does it matter? I'm sure it was probably off that much or more ever since I did the budget boost, so I'm guessing it's not a big deal. I just like to get things right.

I'll try to get pictures of everything tomorrow. For the moment, the Jeep is still garage-bound, and the light in there sucks. Got it ready just in time for the 6-8 inches of snow that's supposed to fall tomorrow night!

: Stupid ... Winter ... Cold ... Snow ... Ugh ... :

edit: Oh, and I ordered something... Savvy... this evening.
