Thanks! So far they have been awesome.

Yesterday we traded in the Commander. It was a great rig, but the transmission was failing and I didn't want to dump anymore money into it. My goal was to get an F250 to tow with, but its the wife's DD and she won.

Should still tow pretty good though

Bling bling ! 400 HP and 400 lbs of torque should work nicely as a tow rig.

I know. It wasn't the bling but the cooled seats that lost the truck for me.

Are you kidding, I don't even have AC in the Jeep. It would be nice though to get rid of the swamp a$$. When are you making a trip to smorr?

Totally understand. Hopefully I can keep my junk together and get a chance to wheel with you.

I finally got the TF Knuckle in, now just waiting on ECGS to ship my axle out.

^^^ Did you do the gussets on the inner C's? Figure I might do everything while it is out and wondered why you did yours.

Yep. Artecs Cs. I had to modify a little to miss the springs and beat on it to fit the upper part of the C. I did mine because I thought that I had bent the axle housing and had already put them on order. When they came in, I figured I might as well hot glue them in place.

With the latest upgrade you should be in good shape for a while . We are hoping to come out over the Fall break from college . When we head that way I will give you a holler .
