Thanks!

Plan is H072 rear and H072/D60 hybrid front. Will be using Dodge D60 unit bearings and stubs, D60 inners resplined to 14 bolt 30 spline and get a detroit. Rear will get a factory locker and stay 17 spline unless I find a good deal on 14 bolt shafts and a detroit. Going to use factory 5.13 gears and (hopefully) 40s. It is still quite a ways out but that's the plan. I will also be painting the rig a different color sometime in the next year or so. When the one tons go under I'll probably chop off the front part of the frame, its bent anyway. Rear might also get the same treatment, depends on if I feel like redoing it.

Picked these up too:

Welp, this sucks. Got a trip to Naches next weekend, need to fix this before then. Can't replace the whole bellhousing, its been cut by Novak for the CPS. I know of someone who fixed this (Alxj64) so hopefully I can repair it before the trip. I was almost done with the Jeep to-do list too.

Looks like you missed a step and fell over.

Thanks Imped. It was a great time, very dirty but I'm really glad we got to the rocks. After I get a cage in there I'm going to try every line I can on funny rocks and side hill moon rocks.
