YJ got a new goodie for Christmas. I got a new JPcooler. Its a 56qt, dual compartment cooler that fits behind where the rear seat should be. For me it fits perfect behind my toolbox and right under my cage. Ive been wanting one of these for a while and my GF took the hint and ordered one up without telling me.

Very nice. We can't have those beers getting warm by any means.

Little update. I received a $100 gift card for Amazon from my brother for Christmas. I couldn't really think of anything I needed so I used the money on the jeep. I ended up buying some new rear shocks. The shocks that ive been running in the rear are HORRIBLE. If i ran over a penny I'd feel it in the rear. Decided to get the same shocks as I run in the front, Bilstein 5125.

I got them installed today. Much better ride

That's why the cooler is needed...to keep the beers warm when something breaks. I can't be wrenching on the trail without something to quench my thirst on a hot summer day or dull my senses when it's blistering cold.



Shocks are awesome by the way. Can't imagine why the old ones were no good.

Oh and I should find out by the end of this month if we are moving to Raleigh. I'll have to make a trip to Jacksonville if you're still down that way.

Ive gone through your thread before but I don't remember seeing anything about your steering setup, care to enlighten me on what you've got? planning on a SOA with wagoner springs up front and have read about some steering issues if you try and stretch anymore than 2".

Thanks! You jeeps looking great!

Thank you very much man.

My steering is a M.O.R.E. bracket, 1.5x.250" DOM with 5/8" hiems. It is true that you can get some steering issues with a 3" stretch. My drag link kisses my diff cover at full stuff but its right about where i have my limit of travel. I could easily bumpstop it a 1/4-1/2" in sooner and avoid it all together. It doesn't really bother me though, this is all a temporary setup anyway.

Hope that helps. If not let me know if you have any more questions.

Yea at some point it will all be gone. Not anytime soon though. Big boy parts are expensive.

Oh yea. Thats why Im trying to SLOWLY collect parts. I have the Artec 4 link frame brackets that i bought about 6 months ago. And a couple weeks ago I received the disc brake brackets from Ruffstuff for my EATON axle.

One the subject of collecting parts I had 2 new parts show up today. I finally decided to use my Metalcloak gift card I won from the YJOTM contest in May. Thanks again to Metalcloak for supporting the contest. I used the gift card to order 2 Duroflex joints. I only need 6 more now for my rear end

Anyway these things look and feel pretty strong. Time will tell. Ive read a bunch of good reviews on them so I figured its worth a shot. These are the
2 5/8" x 2 5/8", 1 1/4" stud joints. Same size as a common Johnny Joint


couple pics of one of them
