Thanks. I like the discs, I pulled them from an '05 KJ though, not that there's any real big differences. The biggest differences I've noticed are -1. Direct bolt on backing plates and caliper brackets. No grinding out the centers for an 8.25. 2. Larger pads, and the KJ rotor has just a little larger braking surface. 3. No hole in the backing plate/caliper bracket for an ABS sensor.

I seriously hate cold weather.

I spent today putting in rear diff, other than the cold it went pretty good. I intended to pressure wash the wheel wells and the underside of the bed etc., but 35 degrees and water don't go well together. I did the wheel wells and revised my build plans. The new plan is to get the Jeep back together enough to drive it into the basement then finish up the rear in there and out of the weather.

Before...



After...

Interior is coming along slowly, just haven't had a lot of time lately to work on it. Hopefully this weekend I'll get a lot done

Now that you have the axles almost complete, what's next for your truck?

Oh, there's a list of stuff, but every time I try to plan it out too far something comes up. The short term stuff I hope to get done in the next couple of weeks is...

1. Finish brake upgrade. 95-96 brake booster/master cylinder, XJ proportioning valve and eliminate the rear load sensing valve.
2. Interior. Install the remaining pieces, find seat belts and fix the dent I made in the floor pan.

I'm looking forward to seeing your interior finished keep us updated.

Thanks. Not the same axle, I replaced the stock D35 with a 29 spline Chrysler 8.25.

Still hate the cold...

I spent today buttoning up stuff on the MJ so I can move it inside. I got the tires and wheels on and got a chance to take a look at the stance. It sits a little higher in the back, but it's a truck.



The 32's are looking kinda small...
