Hopefully the TJ will be finished tomorrow and I can get it aligned so I have her to drive. Weather sucks. Rain is miserable. I want some effin' sun and the roof down.

Gladly! You have access/knowledge of good trails out there? There are a few of us who would love to come out if you know of places to go.

Sounds good to me
I'm going to have to ride shotgun with somebody
My rig is still just a frame and a motor haha
I'm doing a deal with some clubs hopefully to open the area up as ohv land so I can bring a little money to my farm and give people good woodland to wheel
But yea let's set up a day to wheel
Btw check out my build
It's not moving as quick as yours but once it's done it sure will be quick

Sounds like a good plan to get an OHV park in MA. And don't sweat it, my TJ build was slower than molasses for 2 years cause I was living in Florida while it was in Boston.

So updates on the TJ... the rear axle is almost entirely complete, BUT the rear track bar is a piece of sh** and I couldn't get it in for the LIFE of me. (even snapped a come-along in half trying to manually winch it over!)

So tomorrow I'm heading up to Steve's Jeep Country to buy an adjustable so I can get this silly rig back on the road. Today I flushed the brake system and replenished the reservoir with new fluid, all the calipers are good and pressure is great. Over the past few days I built an electrical storage box for the electrical control box, and we test-fit the 35s after finishing up the front axle. Looks good, but I'm going to need some front spacers to level it out as you can tell by some of the photos below. The raking will only get worse with a winch on the front.

Hopefully this will all be finished tomorrow, and aligned by the end of the week. I did a toe-in so it should be drivable for the mean-time.

hey man loving the build. Your pretty much inspiring me to look and get a TJ. Also for a ford your GF got a nice truck. And one quick question, ever think about a soft top, possibly a safari?
