Yes. With the Aussie up front it wasn't ideal but nothing "bad" will happen.

Just have front 2 wheel drive.

not until you put a new cv style rear driveshaft in... which if your putting in a SYE you would need to do anyway.

most people install the SYE, then measure for a new DS and custom order one. the time in between installing the SYE and when the new DS comes in you will need to drive around in 4wd, but with rear DS absent you will be driving around on only the front two wheels.

for the rear i'm going to do a 4 link with poly performance brackets, probably outboarding the rear shocks while i'm at it. (going for something similar to Imped)

front is currently set up for a 4 link and I will revert that back to either a stock type set up or a 3 link (again think Imped). it has a teraflex high steer kit on it that is probably coming off in favor of my correctlync.

Its going to be alot of work to do it all, but it should set me up for several years (while i focus on other aspects of the jeep).

Thanks Lee,

You missed another great run to Rausch. Nothing too crazy and for once i think i made it through a wheeling trip without damaging anything. (i havent washed it yet, so we shall see if that holds true)

Starting to wonder if i got myself in over my head with the axle swap. but i'm sure Ill work it out.

Tenative plan as of now is to have it completed by late April, maybe in time for wheelin for hope. fingers crossed.

I need to figure out which bracketry i will be using. leaning toward Poly Performance, but there are other companies out there that make compariable bracketes for less, like Artec Industries and Barnes 4x4. most likely I will need a little something from everywhere.

also thinking about adding a Savvy GTS to the list of mods. the truss and diff cover are fairly large, so i might need a little more room out back.

first order of business is to finish some woodworking projects so i can have time/space to work on them, then get the axles in my garage stripped down. Ill clean them up and replace unit bearings, ball joints, u-joints, swap yokes, pinion seals, etc. then get them prepped for install. probably going to install the rear first and get the jeep drivable; then tackle the front later.

should be an interesting experience.

Got some pictures of the axles. After the new years they get stripped down, wire wheeled and painted.

Probably going to sell the steering and wheel spacers

Should be a fun spring project.

I got the video finished a few weeks ago, just getting around to posting it here.



almost done with woodworking for the winter and will be moving the Rubicon 44's into the garage to be stripped down and overhauled before slapping them under the Jeep. 3 link front and 4 link rear.

stay tuned...

Since thanksgiving I have been in woodworking mode. Starting with a rocking horse for a friends baby.

image-672881200.jpg

Then onto cutting boards for Christmas presents. I made 8 in total. They are maple and walnut end grain boards.

Then into a boat cradle for my father in laws new PT boat.

Then some quick trays for on top of dressers or coffee tables etc.

image-815443543.jpg

Then a sipo mahognany hall table with matching picture frame for myself.

image-1164544600.jpg

image-2013060658.jpg

I'm almost finished with the picture frame. That's what's been holding me up from digging into the axles. I have too many hobbies and not enough garage space to fit them all. So one hobby at a time will have to do for now.

Got the axles moved into the garage and started to strip them down. More work over the next few days.

Ordering parts for the rear 4 link and rebuild of the front. Going to do this in two stages. Rear 4 link first, and front on stock control arms. Stage two is 3 link for the front. Maybe 2-3 months after the rear is finished.

Going to post the teraflex high steer kit for sale in the next few days.

Very little time in the garage tonight but did manage to get the teraflex high steer knuckle off and cleaned up a little. Need to post it for sale tomorrow.
