I'm waiting on you to get the Jana kits installed. Then I'll order mine and my JK 5.13's.

With the Jana kits…do you need master install kits? Doesn't look like you do since the Jana kit comes with all the necessary bearings and shims.

I cant say a lot until I get everything installed and see how it works out as the JK swap is new to me . Once I get home I will post up pictures and the parts list . One change of plan is that I did not go with the Jana kit to run JK 44s in my TJ 44s.

Soon. After the Under Armor and Novak are installed, I'll pull the Savvy rear bumper and Exogate and do what this guy has done...

Noob Build here on th forums. He made a Genright tire carrier work with Savvy Rub Rails. The main reason I didn't get the Genright carrier in the first place.

It wasn't me, I swear!


I did tag that on Sundowner's though, perhaps he is the culprit.

Loving the build so far. Long overdue to start reading this. I'm on page 107 as of now, but I'm exhausted. After this, I look to start reading AngryTJ's build. I need some local people to follow for once!

I never make the same mistake twice - it's more like three or four times.

Lu's build is pretty awesome and a good read plus he is in the frozen North like you

This weekends Jeeping ?


JK gear install ! I dont set gears , so this is the first time I have left my Jeep with anyone to work on it . It was an odd feeling driving off and leaving it with Jody at Carolina Axle and 4x4 but he is one of the few people I trust to leave it with .




Here you can see the size difference between the JK 5.13s and my LJ's 4.10s . This is a mostly bolt in application but does require some extra shims , different ring gear bolts and a very small amount of grinding on the housing to help clear the ring gear .

And heres my LJ stripped and ready for the JK gears . This is how it sits until Jody gets a new pinion bearing shipped in on Tuesday . This is the first JK swap being done locally and we are the guinea pig for new JK swap kit that is going to be available soon . So this is where the LJ sits until later this week .
In addition to the JK gears Jody is installing new inner seals , lube lockers and ... chromoly rear shafts .

Nice job finding Jody for the gears. Guy really knows his stuff. I've had gears done by a several local people in WNC and can tell you Jody is head and shoulders above the rest! We had a small issue when regearing my CHP9 due to a 3rd party company (not Currie) sending some wrong parts for the install kit. Jody tracked everything down that was missing and setup the gears perfect. He's the only person that'll touch gears in my jeep!
