Beefed up the tub protection with some Genright sliders. These things are stout! I almost wish they hadn't some pre powder coated becuase with their aluminum front fenders I had to plasma cut to accomodate.
I haven't had 4 wheel drive since putting in the 8.8, and missed opening weekend in Uwharrie because of it. The local Jeep dealerships club run is next weekend so now it's crunch time to get the HP 30 trussed, rebuilt, and hung.
This is why you DO NOT BUY house brand ball joints!!
Knuckle back together, using Synergy Suspension ball joints, and Timken bearings. The previous owner had flipped the tie-rod, with the swap I'm going to Currie steering, so tonight I have to get Mr. Blains sway bar link relocation kit welded on.
Currie JJ pressed in to the pumpkin, passenger side is welded in to the Artec Truss
I was suprised with the front Artec truss, the rear is very, very beefy. Other than the actual top spine they used a thinner metal for everything underneath. Still a great product though.
