We can formulate a plan over the upcoming months. We can PM with details.

Danke, though I never really "left" so much as I just wasn't posting as often. I tend to get tied up from time to time so it limits my time to basically only being able to glance at the forum now and again, but all is settled here in CA. Looking forward to a number of wheeling trips in the coming months, so there'll be copious amounts of video to follow suit.

LOL! Good times my friend! We'll miss you on the High Lakes run. Wish I could make it on your exploring run, but can't pull it off.

Before






Primed



Painted



A brief side by side



After









On that note, as I've stated previously, I'm not much for making my rig a billboard. The only decals I have go on the rear window of my hard top. Other than that, I try not to cover my rig in various insignias. For that very reason, I chose not to paint the Spyder logo on the covers.



Step 1 of Summer axle rebuild.

Done.

Nice! If the front cover clears, I'm getting me a set of them puppies! BTW, your TB JJ looks a bit dry.

2000-01 Silverstone TJs are the only Silverstone TJs that exist in my book

All the others are too damn silver

Dirty but heavily greased with Spicer Ultra-Premium Synthetic

Now if only they'd comp me a few tubes for saying that.....

EDIT: I just realized you said dry. Derp. But yea, it gets greased every oil change. That said, all the dust from our last trip stuck to it and makes it look a bit drier than normal.

So by the way, I might go and do the RMS the weekend after King's Canyon, so the weekend of the 16th - 18th. What are your thoughts, Jim?

August is pretty quiet run wise, so that might be a good time. I'll check my schedule to see if that will work. Have you researched the install? Is the FelPro kit the best to go with? I think Stu's site had a good write-up.

The Fel-Pro is indeed, IMO the best to go with. I've already ordered 2 of them, just in case I manage to booger one of them up. It's quite honestly a job I could do in the driveway in a couple hours assuming breaks and munchies in between, so I now have to wage whether or not I really want to take the long *** drive up to Lake Port just to do the swap lol

150$ in gas would make a relatively inexpensive swap a slightly less in-expensive swap. But we'll see where I'm at when it gets closer. Perhaps we can plan some local wheeling after we get em done so as to make the trip a bit more viable, or at least give me an excuse to make it.

I hear ya there! I'm guessing you're about a 3hr drive to me, so I totally get that. Of course, it's nice not to have to do it on your back the whole time. I'm spoiled with our two post lifts! We could hit Cow Mt afterwards for some offroading fun. It's only 20mins away from the shop. Of course pizza-n-brew after as well. We'll play it by ear. I'm in no hurry to change it. It's been leaking since I've owned the heep,lol!

Concerning my front diff clearance. I took these pics when I put the 32's on. I had to add 3/4" bump extensions, so I did the full bump test. My estimate of having 5/8" clearance may of been exaggerated a bit. I'm thinking it's more like 3/8" clearance. I may be in trouble! In the second pic, you can see the tie rod just barely clears the TB. Sorry to clutter your build.
