Nice work. I love seeing complete rebuilds like this. I re-built my TJ as well, very fun experience, pain in the *** at times, but you learn a lot.

03Jeeper - your spot on with the pita part and also with the learning part.

For example: Axles, spent the money on the tools I needed to properly work on them and taught myself how to set everything up. Great lessons learned and skill to have. Although now I want to buy a few axles and start building them for other ppl.

Kodiak17 - Thanks, its a work in progress (jeep and garage) that's for sure and I look forward to seeing your build.

Here are a few more pics from the other day.
I installed new bumpstop cups and the bumpstops, added the Rokmen bumpstop extensions, new brakes front and rear, got the control arms in, made up my rear axle brake lines and installed the front TNT track bar. Still have a lot of adjusting to do so things line up properly but I'm waiting to build my steering which I can start working on now that I picked up a welder of my own today

This weekend I'm shooting to get my SYE installed on my transfer case. Never done one of these before either, I'm going to try and take a lot of pictures of the work that goes into doing it. Should prove to be interesting if anything.

Also a few weeks back before snow started flying I test fit my Rokmen fenders and rear corner guards. I'm looking forward to putting these things to the test. I still have to cut the rear guards over the next few weeks to make sure the tires will stuff up properly with out rubbing, luckily I have a friend that has a plasma cutter which should make things go smoother. I'm aiming to do that when my rocker guards show up so I can fit everything up and paint it all. Not so sure the paint is going to dry that well if its 10 degrees out

Nice build. Nice to see others in my area, I live in Putnam. Says you're from woodstock, but all the familiar places in the pics and videos are in Mass. I'll have to watch out for you in the road.

BTW, what machine shop are you using for your motor work? I'm gonna be building a stroker soon (hopefully) and I'm not too fond of the local shops.

Thanks everyone, its been along time coming. I'm just glad I finally have time to work on it.

Morris369 hopefully you'll see it on the road in the spring time. That's what I'm shooting for, but we'll have to see how everything works out. Kinda funny you asked that today, I just stopped by J&R Machining downtown and talked with him for a bit. John and I both have AMSOIL in common both being dealers so... There is only one other place I know of and he is up in Mendon MA, Mike's Motor's, good guy but always swamped with work, has done some stuff for me in the past, but seeing as how I live down here now I would rather give work to a local person when I can.
Do you know of anyone else the does machining?

So I was able to get the Slip Yoke Eliminator finished on my transfer case today. I took a bunch of pictures, just about one for every step. I would like to point out it was not that hard of an install with the proper tools and it was of course much easier considering the transmission and transfer case are out of my jeep. Here is a little run through of the process.

So I got my two main products needed for the job aside from a pile of tools. AMSOIL Assembly Lube and The Right Stuff gasket maker.
First thing was to drain the ATF
Then was to remove the speedo drive
Next was the shift linkage (after engaging the transfer case into 4wd)
The front yoke was removed next with a 1 1/8 socket, my impact wasn't cutting the mustard so I grabbed a ratchet and my yoke holding tool and it came right off.
Then on to the tail shaft and the removal of the output shaft boot.

I stood the whole assembly up on end.
Next the stop ring and snap ring come off
The rear seal is next to be removed, glad i don't need that one anymore lol
The two rear bearing retaining snap rings came next. The big one was a little bit of a pain
The tail shaft housing was after that with a little motivation from a lead filled rubber hammer around the edges, a little prying and it came right off
Oil Pump came next inline to come out

After the case was split, again with some help of the rubber hammer, we removed the front and rear output shaft.
Then the top snap ring was taken off and the mode hub and drive sprocket got removed from the shaft. Remember the orientation of these two.
Quick shot of the half empty case.
New shaft covered in AMSOIL Assembly Lube, replaced the mode hub and drive sprocket and placed the new snap ring on the shaft.
