The Carnage! I started this thread 6 months ago I have not posted much because I have been in the garage wrenching. This is a teaser thread of what's to come.
I have photos of the build and slowly will begin to release them when I have time. This is the photo of the left over pile of parts. Oops I also forgot some so I put in the second photo. The build ones to come soon.Name:  DSCF0680.JPG

Savvy Under Armor installed. To install this correctly you need an sye and double cardan drive shaft, 1.25 body lift, Novak cable shift kit, It is easiest to use their motor mount lift.Name:  DSCF0709.JPG

Next I installed the Savvy rock step with steel sliders. The steps are smooth and slick. I decided to install some grip tape and from advice from a fellow jeeper I cut it so it would not wrap around the corner. He said that it ruined several pairs of pants and shorts when he had it to long.

Axels I went with and HP30 I managed to find one for $50 I pulled out of a junk yard. Went with 4.88 gears, 10 degree gen right lower control arm brackets they are suppose to put the JJ in a neutral position. No lockers yet needed to save money. Thanks to a local jeeper Don who helped me regear It keep my cost down and taught me a lot about my jeep.

I went with the Savvy aluminum rear corners. If you don't like putting holes in your tub I would stay away from rear armor. Hers is pic of holes and armor on.[ATTACH]Name:  DSCF0662 (2).JPG
