Steering couldnt have turned out better everything is parallel. Got my anti rock for the front welded up too. Brake lines come in from crown (didnt take a pic), these is one thing i couldnt find checking previous swaps. In my opion crown is the way to go all u need to know is the od of the banjo bolt and the length and they can build u anything,mine ended up being $250 shipped.

well took it down the road and couldnt believe how much better it drove in every way it was better. josh at http://www.universalautomotiveconcordnc.com/ finished my drive shafts plus he moded the yoke on the 14 bolt to be a u bolt style. If you have ever read the 14 bolt bible the strape is its only weakness, other than it hanging so low (again need to take pics)

Took it down some local trails and found out it rubes about 3/4 full stuff in the rear. No rocks but some deep ruts and some nice hill climbs, gave me a chance to test the brakes offroad and like on road had no problem.

started getting my christmas present put on.. poison spyder hood loovers were pretty easy except getting the adhesive off the hood. Also got my swag rear bumper on. ordered my fox coilovers for the front going to redo the front end stretch it about 5". going with behind the axel steering genright pitman arm, changing the upper axel side control arm so its adjustable on both ends.

Excellent build sir! If your jeep had a budget boost on 33s I'm sure this would be 89 pages long of people praising it.

What is the deal with that if I had ever part out of the quadretec catalogue on my jeep I'd have a lot more hits..... Thanks
