Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

You see the little rubber plug that screws into the diff behind where the vent line goes on the front axle?

Pull that out and cut it off. Screw it back in to fill the hole after wrapping it in some teflon tape. Most gear guys will screw that up unless they've done JK44s before. It's a plug for the JK's dash to show when the locker is engaged. It's useless for us, so save yourself the hassle and cut both of them off.

Just thought a small comparison to a D44 would be good. This rear JKD44 is huge.

TNT changed the truss. There's only 3 holes on the trackbar bracket for mine. That's cool. More adjustability is always nice.

You do know you are looking at the rear. You don't have a rear track bar.


James, I am going to buy you a premie.

Thats really funny, cause I had the same thing happen to me, except it was a new $100 radio, but they stole my mag lite as well, and when I got a new maglite it was the LED one, haha. I now have learned to take my faceplate off, and hide my flashlight.

Build looks nice. I had to laugh after i read that when you flopped it, you came out the back cursing at the guy, funny visual in my mind. Probably wasn't as funny in person.

I have this small pile of scrap metal to share today.




I did get alot accomplished today. My ears are ringing badly. But the Rear D44 has Naked tubes. What a pain in the rear. I know why people use axles from leaf spring vehicles. I am not looking forward to the front at all. I would like to just pay someone to trim off the front brackets.


Naked Rear end.




Truss set up and spring buckets ready to weld.








I need to install the diff cover, breather tube and rear brake lines. Then the truss can be welded.
