To show my appreciation I would either give you a man hug, or pay you with currency, whatever works!

Hoping to do the fender install the weekend of Nov. 9th - ish.

Pretty sure this one is from the drivers side , or at least it looks like it when I compare it to how it would bolt up . The part # on the back of it is 48 4 B .



If this will work pm me your address .

Thanks so much Greg, that should allow me to bolt my cage back together and my drivers side door surround won't flop around anymore!

Would it be tragic if I threw a real TJ grill back on this Jeep? Not super High on the priority list, but I'm considering it.

Sent the driveshaft off to be shortened. They should have it Monday, and I should have it back by Friday. The place is local, but I can't make it there before they close as I work in the opposite direction, so I just shipped it..

4.88's or 5.13's? This will stay my daily driver and I have a 30 minute drive at 60mph. Like to get optimum mpg's.

Loosely planning in going to the badlands for toys for tots, so I gotta get working on this thing, need that front locker working!

We'll see, I have a buddy who wants it pretty bad.

Well, here is my shaft. What an ordeal, but isn't everything I touch? Ill comment more on that later. For now, my shaft. This weekend I plan to put the tease skid back where it belongs, and a surprise hopefully.

Well...aside from me making the hood look absolutely horrific...which with some time with a flap wheel I can make that look better, didn't turn out too bad. Displease with psc and the fact that they didn't bend that radius that bolts to the grill.

More later.

Ha! Yeah I know, had I known in advance that I was going to have to re-gear anyway I would have purchased 37's. I wanted to get the fenders on before I lowered it, so now that's next.

I agree completely, this is what I needed to get the warm and fuzzies about the grill. It's exactly how I envisioned it.

Thanks, I agree!

Well the passenger side cut went a lot better - still want to go over both sides some more since im kinda anal. Not sure what I am going to do with my fuse box - I think Lu or someone just had theirs zip tied to the hood bars. I cant recall what cold air kit I have but it's in the way from doing that. I need something like a rock it intake or something short.

Ill try to get some underhood shots tomorrow. I did way better this time about being redneck - got quite a bit of stuff bolted down so things don't flop around.

I like it.

Thank you. Yes I did, thank you.

Super happy about this - 1" tcase drop is gone!



Sunday we had a real nice day so after I picked up fourteen thousand leaves I took a couple pictures. Very few turned out the way I liked.





Other than that, this is my favorite picture, did some silly editing on my new droid and I just think its neato!



At this junture, looks like toys for tots at the badlands dec. 7th. I need to get my factory roll cage put back together and make the front locker work. Bonus points if I can get it lowered and aligned by then. Hope to get lowering kit purchased this week yet.

I'D LIKE TO BUY A USED LOCKER PUMP IF ANYONE KNOWS OF ONE!!

A decent amount of happenings!

Bought a used locker pump, it's on the way.

Bought a used $125 dollar front Currie Antirock. I have to replace the joints, not a big deal $5 each from Summit - I'll document this later.

Roll cage is bolted back together with the correct mount thanks to G Beasley.

Factory TJ hood latches installed. Less pucker factor when passing a semi on the highway on a super windy day.



Ive got a pair of brand new SOLID diff covers, but I might just wait until I gear it before those get installed. Gotta get some lube lockers anyway. Lu is about the only one I heard from on what gear ratio to run.
