Yea but 4.56s are much easier to find. The problem with me having a D44 is that its hard to find a geared carrier for it and often they arent sold at all. Maybe ill try to buy this guy's D30 and use the carrier. Then i might bite the bullet and pay for a regear for the rear. If i pull the carrier for the guys it might not be too pricy.

Sweet, which seats did you decide on ? Normal belts or a harness?

A buddy of mine was trying to get money to head out to the desert, so got "Sportsman" mastercraft black cloth seats for $200. Will be doing 4 pts and harness bar when I get the chance, but stock belts will be there for now

I am enjoying your ease in cutting this jeep up. Loving the signals. Now where are the MCE's?

Since it was cheap, I don't worry to much. You'll see it over thanksgiving weekend if you'll be in town. I'm driving it back. Mces are still on hold. Got a new job that pays much better, so give it a little more time. And still haven't sold the subi, so that's the other problem

Nice looking Jeep. I'm digging the look of the cut fenders. If i was not back and forth on selling my Jeep I would totally do it. We will have to see what happens. If I keep it It will get lowered a couple of inches and I will need to do something.

Well I know I can do 4 inch springs. The RE 5.5 is more like 6 to 6.5 inches. My brother in-law had currie 4inch springs and 1.25 BL and I was 3/4 to 1 inch taller than him. I hope lowering it makes it a little more user friendly for daily driving. If not at least easier to get in and out of.

You could do 3" Savvy coils with some good riding shocks and add a 1 1/4" bl and you'll still be fine for 35's. It will ride extremely smooth too


to stay on topic, I waxed it for the first time. I dont think the PO ever waxed the thing. cleans up well









Garret, I think you may be interested in this. Coming back for thanksgiving and that weekend we're headed out to TDS playground if you're interested. Also, anybody else reading this that wants to go, be my guest
