Scored a HP 30 today for free. Going to teach myslef how to regear. Going with Artec lower control arm brackets, RCV's, and transfer over the Rock Krawler steering, JJ axle mount, and the Spartan. Hopefully have it done by this fall, but it will be a good way to learn gears.

But the track bar bracket is cut off. Having a little trouble finding an aftermarket replacement.

Any advice?

If the Rock Crawler setup is high-steer, this would probably be a good option...

Cool thanks! I had not seen that one.


5-6 inches of snow predicted for Sunday. Looks like more wheeling in the snow again this weekend

Pulled off the rear stinger and threw the spare in back. Loaded the Jeep with every spare part I own. 6-8 inches of snow predicted and big *** rocks, should be a great day tomorrow.

Your Jeep is very nice and mine will be very similar when it gets to roll out of the garage. Voting for you in TJOTM. I am def getting those tub rails with my corner armor!

Any issues with running no rear flares? I've considered it but I would have to have mudflaps here in Commiefornia .

Love the tub rails.

No issue so far with running no rear flares, besides it rooster tails down the highway in the rain. I got tired of slamming the ****tybuilts into trees and rocks. I guess I got lucky on my state.

Thanks for the vote man. Seems crazy to even be in the running

Have to admit, I am looking forward to top off wheeling asap though
