Steering couldnt have turned out better, everything is parallel and everything appears it's going to clear. Got the antirock rock installed another piece to fit around the steering and trac bar. Brake lines come in from crown (didnt take a pic), this is the 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.

I took it down the road and couldn't believe how much better it drove in every way it was better. Josh at http://www.universalautomotiveconcordnc.com/ finished my drive shafts and he modified the yoke on the 14 bolt to be able to accept a u bolt style instead of a strap. If you have ever read the 14 bolt bible the strap is its biggest weakness along with it being so low (again need to take pics)....

Got some small stuff done, figured id post it up. Added a savy tail gate skin, ordered psc tramp stamp and big hit bumper from swag to finish up the rear. It came time to change trans fluid so i figured it was a good time for some upgrades. The 42rle is definitely the weak point in my tj, it runs hot really hot so I started with a deral trans cooler to help with the temptures. While I had the pan pulled to channge the filter I went ahead and installed a drain plug, also added a autometer transmission gauge to keep an eye on the temptures. To help with the stress that's on the single sheer pitman I had a duel sheer pitman arm made turned out really good.

I installed a durango 160 amp alternator today, direct bolt in other than upgrading the charging wire coming from the alternator. It's truely is a great upgrade, i tried pulling down the battery with the winch and the battery indicator never moved.
The one on the left is stock one on the right is the durango.

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 installing my christmas present today.. The poison spyder hood loovers were pretty easy to install minus cutting a perfectly good tj hood. It definitely help get the heat out of the engine bay. Also got my swag rear bumper on...

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.

98 XJ: has been tweaked a bit

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
