Note the "JEEP" and "SPORT" logos in the first picture. Technically, the "before" is the passenger side, and the "after" is the driver's. I horizontally inverted the before picture so that it was the same alignment as the after photo. Good eye, though!

Wow, very nice. It's impressive how much you've gotten done this summer, Ryan.

Yep! They're pretty good for the price and painlessness of the install.

Thanks, Geoff. Means a lot. I've put a fair amount of time into her this summer, and I'm really pleased with the results.

I just installed the Novak in my wife's 2000 Sahara, makes you wonder why it didn't come that way from the factory, much easier to adjust. By the way I've been following your build, nice Jeep.

Thanks for the kind words. And yeah, i wonder the same thing. Three stages of linkage was completely unnecessary.

So yesterday Pat and I ripped out the old linkage. Went extremely smoothly, and we had the whole thing done, adjusted, and buttoned back up in an hour and 45 minutes (most likely due to the fact that he had done is not even 3 months ago, so it was kind of a review course). Thing went easy as pie, although adjusting the large bolts that fine-tune the cable was kind of a pain, and getting at the bracket bolt on TOP of the transfer case was not the most exciting or easy thing I've ever done. Needless to say, it's done, and I now can shift into gears without having to crawl underneath and manually move the lever with my hand.

After the NOVAK install, we moved on to a very basic installation of new Grade 8 and Grade 10.9 hardware in the front control arms. When I had first put the axle in, I needed to replace the bolts but Sears didn't have Grade 8. For an "in the mean time..." adjustment, we threw in bolts of the right size and called it a day. Before going wheeling again, I wanted to get the right bolts in there. The driver's side upper and lower CA bolts went in perfectly..... the passenger side LCA bolt went in perfectly......... the passenger upper however, took us over 3 hours to get installed.

Needless to say, I need adjustable uppers for the front. So I'll have to order those soon. Anyway, here are photos.

Geez, that's crazy that it fought you for that long. Sorry I wasn't there to help. I would have just CLAYTON-SMASH'd it.

And I agree with you on those upper arms. You have what, 5" of lift and you're on stock arms?

As long as you got it back in for the time being, you'll be good for now. I'm just glad you didn't have to call a tow truck!
