No problem.

Well my gauge cluster is good to go. I just need to wire my LED markers up properly and I'll be all set.

I think the only thing I NEED to do is fix the torque arm and bushings. My last outing bashed that part inward on the skid and it's kind of binding. I need to take some washers out of it as I put some in there to take up the gap I had before installing.

I'll snap a pic of my box tomorrow. I may have forgot to mention this but the braket I got not only moves the box forward 1" it also moves it 1/2" towards the pass. side. I was concerned about this as well but it fit nicely.

Pics tomorrow.

No problem. I'll snap a few pics tomorrow in the daylight. I've drove the jeep today and I'm pleased with how it drives.

I need to see if the drag link interferes with the frame under full stuff. It did before so I assume it still will. If so I have two options, notch the frame or modify my bumps. I'm not opposed to either.

If you modify your bumps make sure to get something besides metal, I have metal stops and they can get old when wheeling for a day listening to them making contact with the axle haha!

My buddy got me some extended Daystars for a birthday present. I put them on but they don't line up with the axle under full compression.

For the most part I never worried much about bumps. I have a trip in a couple weeks to Morris Mountain. We'll see how it goes.

Looks good Lou. How would a steering box skid fit over top? Would it have to be custom or are there enough places to utilize the factors mounting brackets on the box to mount it? I understand the front of the skid would have to be modified. How about a steering box brace?

Thanks for the pic...

Anti, as for the skid. it shouldnt be an issue. it aligns withe the box bolts so as the box moves over so does the skid. and a brace can always be shortened a 1/2" if needed..

Question to the JF guru's.

My pass. side axle seal is leaking. I still have the CAD system and will most likely just refill the diff until warmer weather comes. I have spare shafts for the CAD system so I'm not in a rush to do a solid shaft conversion.

The question, if I were to replace the seal in the CAD would it be beneficial to put some seals in the pumpkin on the pass. side? I know there isn't a machined surface on the shafts so it would inevitably eat them up. I've seen other guys put (2) seals stacked in the pumpkin. I would put some gear oil in the CAD as well to keep it lubed.

I figure it would keep the fluid in for the most part. Or it would drain to the axle tube and keep it from getting back in.

On another note, I am riding at Morris Mountain this weekend in Alabama. Will be driving 260 miles just to wheel the jeep. We'll see if I make it home.
