Thanks Kyle, if you do decide to somewhat follow in my footsteps you've got a lot of work ahead of you buddy! At least you're buying your corners, I guess a third of my hours have been reworking those. I figure my thread should save you some quess work also. Looking forward to you starting and seeing what you come up with.

I like the corners painted to match much better . The stretch looks great , now for the painful part ... wallet opening .

What???? No metal to cut today.... no grinding today???? No sanding!!!! Lol. Ok today's project is basically to run a hard line extension for the rear brakes, Do some painting, and just clean up a bit. If I get ambitious I'll pull the T-case. SYE has been ordered.

Don't pull the t-case for a sye. Just pull the back half of the case off.

I know it can be done like that, but I think I'd rather plop it on the workbench and have at it, then be stuck under the jeep for an hour or so. We'll see, when I pulled it to install the Tera-low, I remember it being very easy to pull and re-install.

I would pull the T-case it was a pain working on it with it still in the jeep. Its to easy to take out the t-case not too. Only 6 nuts and a few wires.

Take it from this guy who has worked on his tcase to much.... pull it. Best tool to do this is a wratcheting 9/16 wrench. Even full of fluid, I can remove it by myself and reinstall without a trans lift. Maybe 80 lbs full.

Yup, maybe if I had a lift I wouldn't pull it, but I'm to big of a guy to be sitting hunched over under that jeep for very long. haha.

Well a pre made 8" section of brake line from NAPA has solved the rear brake problem. I'm not going to mount it until I get everything back together but it should work out well.

Rugged Ridge .. as far as I know, they are basically all the same. I did not go for the super short one.... since I don't need it. I think the parent company to a lot of these re-branded SYE's is Omix-ada. I admittedly did very little research though.

I hear they are one of the more reasonably priced ones. Just was curious. A SYE is on my short list of needs.

$165 shipped on Ebay was the best I could do.... I thought that was pretty good.

Gettin stuff re-connected as much as I can at this point and some final painting. Feeling pretty sanitary. Looking good for link mounting as soon as I get the brackets.
