He was probably talking about control arm bushings, but you run stock control arms with relocation brackets...

You should reconsider that setup

Thanks for the insight. I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty putting on a lift.

Happy Trails

no prob. just be careful to make sure everything is tight, but not too tight, or you could break a bolt. ive done it plenty of times.

lost a ujoint cap 2 days ago, while wheeling at badlands. so will be redoing my right ujoint and using a press to make sure it is pressed correctly. and getting the caps tack welded on, just incase.

also will be replacing inner axle seals.



so will be changing diff fluid and doing an oil change while im at it.


ball joints are dam near dead. but i do NOT want to replace them. since i'll be swapping these axles out real soon.

took a few hours to get all the sand out of the Jeep.

swapped in a new ujoint tonight. but still need to figure out my steering issue. think i killed another power steering pump.

as you know, DUB and ballistic off road were working on getting me to SEMA this year to show the Jeep for a tire company. Well, i hadnt gotten a response in a while, so i decided to look around more. So i sent out some messages to a few companies and lo and behold, Coverking called me, and they want my Jeep. They will outfit her with all new seat covers with custom embroidery. they need my exact answer by tomorrow on if i will do it or not.

it all comes down to the transportation method and costs, as Las Vegas, isnt close, and gas isnt cheap.

I'm also gonna have a new hood decal made in matte black (to blend in with the gloss black paint, so you can just see it up close).

i like that idea, not flashy but it's there nonetheless

my other axle is hasnt been responding lately. so i continued my search. found this little bad boy. 1999 F350 D60. 3.73 gears
new brake calipers. new ball joints.

good ujoints, good rotors, good gears, good shafts + inner + outer splines.




was thinking of maybe putting in some Currie unit bearings, that puts me at a 5x5.5 Bolt pattern, with that, id have to replace the outers with 35 spline and either drill the current rotors or get new ones.

then id tie the drag link into the tie rod.


what you guys think?
