Also.... whats the final thoughts on the durango brake fluid reservoir swap?
Or did you do the proportioning valve and brake booster too?
Dont remember reading/seeing anything other than the res swap.....

I did the whole master cylinder, completely bolt on project. Honestly its a night and day difference between the two. When you hit the brakes it stops, and the pedal doesn't go down as far as it would with the stock one. If you do this project it may look like the reservoir is going to hit the hood but it clears probably by an inch or two. Also the brake lines that go into the master cylinder will have to be slightly bend a little to get them to go around and attach to the cylinder.

Thanks man! its a work in progress, I was looking at Atlas transfer cases. I've heard good things about them. Pry would be a good upgrade from stock.

So here's the new house, I finally will have a garage to really tear into the Jeep. FYI the sellers have not moved out yet, we close on the 14th.

I read through your build thread and really enjoyed it! I have basically built the same way you have, over time, learning the hard way and upgrading as required, except mine has taken a little longer.....! Good to hear on the Currie steering, I was considering going JCR but have been swayed, sounds like Currie steering is money well spent. I grew up in CO, and sure miss those views, enjoy it!

Pictures shouldn't be private anymore. The currie steering is awesome! Very strong so far defiantly money well spent. Hope the pictures are good idk what I'm doing wrong if they are still private.

Thanks man! I know it's only a oversized 1 car garage but it's got a nice big wood shed in the back too, perfect for storing Jeep parts.
