Not orange cause they are not reid racing. probably red ,calipers, nice semi gloss black on the axles. or pink? :-)


My plans for the front differential:

I am going to put an outer clam shell or sleeve to strenghten the tubes on the front axle. Paired with the TNT truss and a set of outer C gussets I beleive the front will be strong enough to handle anything I want to put it through. Also a Riddler differential cover. Later on I could also install a set of Magnum 44 inner sleeves with tube seals.

The rear Differential is another story:

I will only trim off the brackets and add the rear TNT truss and a set of outboard shock brackets. Also a Under Cover Fab works welded differential cover.

I will eventually run 40s. Just want to try it out. I figure with enough work done on them they will be fine.

Here are some better digital photos of them at home.









I got the rear end off the trailer WOW is all I can say. Really heavy stuff. They have been kept in side. They still have all the screws in the brackets holding them to the crates. I cannot get them out of the crates by myself so I guess I will have to slide them in the garage. I brought home my face shield tonite I was going to grind off the brackets on the rear. Its to hot outside right now to do anything.

If I didn't like satin black so much I'd shoot for this color. Silver with bronze clear. Beautiful

Since you are happily spending money, going to order and antirock for the rear also? With the rear 4 or trilinked and antirocks front and rear it should be a very nice riding mad flexing Jeep. As soon as my other Jeep project is finished my little yellow one will get an antirock in the rear, that and raise the body mounts on the side before I actually rip them off. Going to try and mount your lower control arm mounts on the rear axle even with the axle tubes to help eliminate wheel hop while climbing rocks?

Yes, There is a rear antirock in the future. The plan is to mount the lower control arms as even as I can with the tubes. I want to have everthing tucked out of the way.

So The morning started out bad. I got my axles unloaded and in the garage. I had to move my jeep out to do so. I left my jeep out in the driveway no top, no doors. Guess the local thieves decided an easy target. Got in the jeep to go to work. No CD player. O well it was the old messed up one anyway. Its just the point. I leave my jeep out one nite and bam they steal the junk out of it. Guess I got my work cut out this weekend ,clean out other side of garage, wire up new flood lights out side. I hate thieves.

****ty. The worst thing that happened to mine parked outside was the neighborhood kids covered the entire soft top with ketchup. In the middle of winter. Didn't even notice until I brushed the snow off and smeared ketchup all over the parts of the jeep that they missed. :
