Thanks! I actually hijacked my dads welder up until a few months ago. It is definitely worth saving up for. Fluid holders were from TG (Trail Gear) they were a worthy investment as I was originally carrying extra fluid in a plastic crate before those which bounced around a lot. The TG ones can be bolted down. I bought in a set but you can buy them individually as well.

Got any free weekends between now and September? I may come down while Sylvia studies. She is pretty hardcore right now so I can only imagine how it will be when test time comes. Let me know.

If yer gonna fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.

Finally ordered my new driveshaft from Tom woods. They talked me out of the output style disk parking break. So now I have to figure that out.

Goals for this weekend is to get rocker guards mounted, front fenders painted and mounted. If I'm really good I'll get the rear bump stops welded in.

Sounds like fun... I have a new set of 35 KM2's planned for the daily driver, as well as swapping the family bar out for a sport bar. That's presuming the thing survives the 2 hour drive down to Tampa...

Why did they change your mind on the disc parking brake?

Sweet can't wait to see pics of those KM2's. Had a friend with some and they were sick. I'm actually a fan of a hybrid roll cage, something between the sports bar and the family bar, like a rollback. Saw one in Crawl mag on a TJ that it would love to build.

They guy I spoke with said they stopped carrying as many of them as they were not selling. He said that he saw a fair amount of returns on them and that he just wasn't convinced. He did tell me he was not one way or the other, but I could tell he didn't really feel they worked for most folks. I'll continue to do more research before I make that call.

I'm not one of those that believes everything I hear, but I would like to do some more research and to be honest I had made that call prematurely without any research cause I hate the parking brake setup on the 8.8.

I'm looking forward to getting them on as well. They were backordered for months, so I was a bit surprised when they said they had a set in stock.

I wanted to swap the bars out because I'm just not a fan of the family bar... never have been. I don't run a back seat, so really just don't need/want the bulk back there. The hotrod, of course, has a very serious roll cage, that is actually functional.

If yer gonna fight, fight like the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark.

I am in agreement. I'm actually thinking about putting drum brakes on my 8.8 just for the parking brake. I never had a problem with drums and compared to the D35 (in size) they will be a big improvement.

Well house work got in the way of working on the jeep. I did however get the rockers mounted 95%. I still need to tie the rear corner guards, rockers, and fender flares with the supplied hardware.

Started fitting the front fenders. I'm going to have to modify the front part of the rocker to compensate for the flair on the front fender. Shouldn't be to hard, just a little bit of 4 1/2" angle grinder work to do.

Driveshaft comes this week on Thursday. If I can get front fenders complete before weekend it will be drivable.
