Finally got around to installing my SRC rear bumper... this is the one I might make a tire carrier out of this summer. It looks a million times better than the stock, IMHO. I've got 2 shackles being painted the same red as the front for the back now, too.

Okay JeepForum... I have a legitimate question that I would appreciate answers to. Offroading today, and engaging 4LO, the t-case shifter broke off and left me stuck in neutral in the pouring rain in mud. After being dragged back out to the main road, I crawled under her and with a small river of rain running down my shirt, I manually engaged 2 hi so that I could get home.

What is the fix for this? Surely there's no way I'm the first person to have had it happen. What's the solution? The circle should be attached where the tip of the arrow is.





..... and some more pics

Looks like the Novak is what it's going to be... I'm going to wait a little though since the TJ is currently under the knife and I need to make sure everything's set up for that before dumping money elsewhere. SaxManClay and I spent today removing the D35 from under the TJ. Took us just under 2 hours not counting the water and food breaks. Honestly, factoring in the fact that the axle hasn't been removed since it was put in there in the first place, it all went extraordinarily smoothly. I think the brake lines were the most annoying part, but I disconnected the hard lines at the T-block, and ended up just cutting through the e-brake lines since the 8.8 came with its own.

Tomorrow, we'll be taking the D30 out of the front, and she'll be up entirely on jacks. At that point all of the components will be stripped and painted with Chassis Saver as well as the frame and tub itself. That should take a day or two in total, enough for the base coat and a top coat with some Rustoleum enamel on top, and then everything can go back under. During the paint and dry time, I'll order the ZJ steering components, and have the 35s mounted and balanced so they're ready to go under. All in all it should be pretty easy.

Here are a million pictures!

Looks awesome. I called you back to give you some advice before you cut those lines off. Are you doing the install at your house?

Got your message, my phone had been on silent on the porch. Got the brake lines off at the T-block on the axle itself. And yeah, at the house in Reading. You're more than welcome to swing by when you're free, Clay and I should be working on the front tomorrow if the weather cooperates.

Hopefully the weather will hold out for you. Did ECGS give you a new "T-Block", or are you re-using the one from the D35?

They didn't give me a new one... did they give you one? It's greasy as hell.

Glad someone noticed my hydraulic jack didn't work so I needed to improvise. Had to wash it of brake fluid afterwords but it did what it needed to!
