So I picked up an axle and some spare parts I found on craigslist this past Saturday. It's a low Pinion Dana 30 out of an LJ. Unfortunately the housing is bent, but it has 4.88 gears, A Spartan locker, Chromoly axle shafts, Currie correctlync steering, with a new tie rod for it, along with the original currie tie rod for a spare, ORO steering kit with tie rid and drag link, and finally two pair of factory axle shafts for spares. I think I'm going to add the Spartan and the chromoly shafts and the currie steering to mine. I will probably end up selling the 4.88 gears since I want to build a high pinion. I'm torn between running the Currie kit or this ORO kit. I think I'm going to run the Currie kit and see how I like it and go from there. I do like how the ORO kit has a solid tie rod from knuckle to knuckle, and the drag link goes from pitman arm to knuckle but this makes the track bar/drag link out of parallel so I could see the possibility of bump steer there but I doubt it would be very noticeable.

nice work so far. i like your DIY approach to most of your projects.

your switch panel looks realllyyy good too. the step down for the 12v plugs will help keep your shifter from smacking your dash should you eventually tummy tuck. i had to bend the snot out of mine on my TJ after i put the UCF ultra high skid on

Nice switch panel, really clean looking. Where did you get the switches from?

Thanks for the kind words, The switches came from OTRATTW.
