Youre gonna love them KM2s man! Way to go! Cant wait to see the pics! My 3.73s are awesome on the highway! Kinda wish I had 4.56s for future purposes (future 35s km2s) . Nice build! Youre eventually gonna want a Slip Yoke Eliminator Kit. Trust me. A 13 year old can install one and it will be the best investment you make on your jeep!

Looks good man.... what happened to the KC's on the hinges ?

It's better to live one day as a lion than a hundred years as a lamb.

Good build so far, I plan to be purchasing a TJ fully stock here coming monday if everything goes as planned. Always interesting to see how others built their rigs up!

Anyhow just wanted to ask why you chose 4.56s? Are you not planning to go any larger than 33s?

If you don't stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

New Mexico Driving Rules...
  • As a general rule, the vehicle most in need of a significant amount of bodywork (for which the driver is most likely uninsured) always has the right of way.
  • Never use directional signals when changing lanes. They only serve to give away your next move, causing most NM drivers to speed up and not let you in. In fact, use of directional signals within most large NM city limits is actual illegal.
  • NM law states that at least 50% of all paved surfaces within the state must be under construction at any one time. In all construction zones, at least half of the available lanes must be closed, regardless of whether any actual construction is be accomplished or not. Construction signs shall be regularly repositioned in order to warn drivers about upcoming lane closures immediately after they pass the last exit before traffic backups.
  • Driving through constructions zones with upcoming lane closures is a popular game in NM. Itís called the "speed up and pass as many cars as you can, then see how close to the lane closure you can squeeze back into traffic before hitting any of the orange construction barrels" game.
