Thankfully I had my previous More sprint plates that I could re use. I had to beat them with a hammer on the concrete to straighten them out, but I got them bolted up. It is weird that the perches come pre drilled with 1" holes but the plates do not. I decided I'll make do with these until after a trip to windrock in two weeks.

Here it is with the axle bolted back up and the wheels on it. You can't tell at all that the axle has been pushed back 1" and thankfully it appears I won't have to do any extra trimming at this point.

Just something else I decided to do while I was replacing the tank with the new genright EXT unit. I read up on the home made tailgate flip kit thread but decided to go with the swag offroad option for a few reasons. The main reason was that I recently worked a ton of overtime and had extra cash on hand. It may have been overkill, but I like it. And it will work great when I get some corner guards down the road.

And here is the finished product on the swag tailgate flip kit. I wasn't impressed with some the hardware. There is not much difference between a torq head and an Allen head to me. Call me old fashion but I'll take a good ole bolt and nut any day.

So during my axle push-back I found that my passenger rear brake line was crimped at the flare. Didn't take much to completely brake the line. So a new flaring tool and cutter from sears should do the trick. I used the ends of my perches I removed as a new bracket for the brake lines, as they were previously bolted to the u bolt plate. A cutting disk, flap disk, and welder later and I had a new place to put the brake lines. Pictures to come.

Picture of the new flared brake line, also through in the pic of how I re routed my exhaust, not a permanent install yet.

Replaced my old rubicon express shackles with new rubicon express boomerang shackles. Last time at Morris mountain I ended up inverting my front shackle, which thankfully popped back out while wheeling and didn't damage the spring to much. These should help to keep that from happening again.

Removed the gears and brakes. Getting ready to cut all the old brackets off.

Got all the brackets cut off and ground down. Pain in the butt, when they put those things on I have no doubt they would be bent or cracking. I also am having a case of the black boogers cause of all the metal, dirt, rust, and grease flying around. Finally got smart and set up a box fan as I worked and blew it away from me as I cut everything.

Next step is to remove the ball joints and the steer arms. Will end up reusing the driver but going to do a high steer setup on the passenger.

Also going to start putting the EVO sleeves in and gussets on. Will try to be detailed on that part, in case it helps someone else.

Pics to come

it's really coming along!

did you already order the parts from EVO? I've seen some of their stuff and it definitely left a lot to be desired in craftsmanship and fitment, For what it's worth. Hopefully that's not the case with your stuff. I can't remember since it's been about a month since I've looked at this, but what flares did you use? Genright, correct?

Some pics after cutting the brackets off. Went through 7 cutting discs and 1 grind disk. Don't know where this axle has been on the Cherokee I pulled it from but they had some crazy road grime and grease build up on the c's. Hence the black boogers.
