After you commented on the A to Z bumper I jumped back to read your thread, and I love what you did with it! Exactly what I have envisioned to do eventually.

It was a long time ago that I first read it and forgot that you started with the A to Z, since it looks so damn good. Been thinking that it was a Rokmen.

What else is there to spend money on ? Beer and transfer cases ?

Amazing build. You do great work. Wish I could do the meet up in Moab, but have other plans during that time.

As my wife says, Moab is like Disneyland for adults. We have always had a great time.

I want to start by saying I wheel my rig with a soft pedal , but if it gets ugly I am not afraid to stomp it . With that being said hopefully my parts list vs tire size will make sense.

Synergy Ball Joints . I know Spicers would have sufficed , but what the heck .
Superior Discovery Axle Shafts with 760 joints (Evos are back ordered with no scheduled ship date) But 4WS in Springfield MO gave me good solid advice along with great pricing .
Synergy Inner Axle sleeves .
Timken Wheel Bearings .
And I am going to make an Inner C gusset while I have everything apart .

A lot of ya'll will think this is overkill for 33s , and I can agree with that assessment . However I tend to go pretty far off the beaten path and hopefully this is insurance to get me there and back with less chances of breakage .

One last thing ... crows are the debil ! More to come , but they have been bombing my J trucks .

No arguments at all, on any point, whatsoever. Proceed.

I will argue that I wanted the American made Evos instead of the Indian made discos , but when ones not available its a moot point .

That's why I didn't argue it; if you can't get one, then you have to use what you CAN get. I'd prefer the USA stuff as well, but an upgrade is an upgrade - upgrayedd - any way you cut it. I'd also probably pick "truss" over "sleeve" for my own build, but I'm also the type to pick truss AND sleeve, so, moot point there as well. All the same...no arguments; and go ahead and cut a couple extra C-gussets, while you're at it.

I thought you were on 35s already. That should be a sturdy jeep on 33s.
