Yeah they have an insert section. I'll try and get a better picture. It would be scary if it was just a nut.

Thanks to everyone who subscribed or follows. I don't ever know if many read my build thread. Thanks for all the posts.

I'm taking off Monday and will try and get the steering finished up. I've been in Alabama working all last week and didn't have any time to work on the jeep. I did make some extra cash so I may buy something, don't know what yet. My wife is ready to go for a ride in it so I need to get it back on the road.

Any recommendation on how to break in a set of gears on the front? I know how to beak in a set for the rear, but they have power supplied 100% of the time.

I was wondering why you haven't quite finished that steering yet.

As far as the gears go, I just drove mine around on short (30 min) trips. My driveshaft was spinning due to the locker all the time so the gears were moving but no load. I occasionally put it in 4wd to put some load on it. I recommend just driving it around in 4wd a little (maybe in Royston) then wheeling it and changing the fluid after the first wheeling trip with the new gears.

I should have my body mounts fixed by next weekend. Did I tell you I have dialed the welder in?

Yeah that sounds like a good idea.

I saw in your thread where you said you changed the speed and it started to lay down some better welds. I'm still dialing in mine, depends on what your welding, but every time I do something different, I change the setting.

I'm about to put a new wire spool on it so I'm going to check the settings while I'm in there and make sure everything is good. I may need to swap the roller for the wire to the bigger size if it hasn't already been done. The wire seem to intermittently stop while I'm welding. I think if it was continuous it would work a lot better.

Any updates since this was your jeep day?

No updates, ended up do house work like hanging a new chandelier, recycling, and putting together a new mtn bike carrier for the Wifes jeep. Also had to go birthday shopping for the wife. Also to windy and cold to paint which is where I'm at right now.

I did get my MORE sector shaft support. Pretty nice, and came powder coated. Will get pictures and post. Also, got a few other things, T&T fluid holders, outdoor carpet set, and I should get a new console tomorrow. Just a few interior upgrades. Have class Tuesday and Thursday, so hoping I get some time Wednesday and Friday.

So here is what I got done in an hour or so. Finished painting the tie rod, so it's ready to put in now. In wrapped my presents to myself, they are T&T fluid holders. Also bolted in the MORE steering sector support. Some progress finally.

Did you have trouble installing the steering brace?

Yes and no. The bar bolted up fine. But since I moved my steering box with the relocation bracket I couldn't mount it as designed. Basically had to mount the clamp to one side of the bar rather than sandwich the bar with the clamp as designed. There is a flange on the steering box, that if I ground it down a little I could mount it as it is supposed to. I will probably go back and do that.

I just noticed you did installed one as well, did yours bolt up easily? How do you like the MORE shock extension towers?

Nice progress. I have the body mounts fixed on my jeep on the drivers side. I should have the pass. side done in a couple days. I will post pics tomorrow.

I didn't know you got the steering box brace. Nice addition.

Good! We need atleast one of ours complete. Brace was an afterthought and from the tax return. Came out nice. Hopefully steering shouldn't be a weak link now.

Mine should be at wheeling status in a few days. Yours will be done shortly no doubt.
