"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

ok, so we just got back from the JY. I got my hp 30 pulled, it wasnt as clean as I would like it to be. We actually almost flipped an xj with some mid evil torture device looking lift thing trying to get the one I wanted. The bastards at the JY werent interested in helping us, so I had to take what we got pulled. Anyways, this one is in fine shape, it will just take a bit more TLC to get where it needs to be in 2 weeks. I was planning on changing all 4 ball joints and both bushings anyhow. I think I will get this one sand blasted first as well, its gotta look purdy. Next step, get everything in line for the re gear, I should be taking the axles to the shop next tues/wed.

One thing that I am concerned about, especially with my time frame is finding an air pump for my locker, I know I can go arb and just get a regulator that puts out 5 psi (rubi locker) ideally I would like to find a stock rubi air pump so it would be much more simple but the only place I have found one is ebay, and they are 200 for a pair, thing is, I don't wanna spend 200 bucks on them, and I only need one! Anyways, if you have any ideas as to what I can do or where I can find one, let me know!

Don't waist your $ on the powder coating. First rock you hit, it's waisted, and if you ever decide to weld on it, the powder coating is a ***** to get off.

Rod and Mike--sorry for pussin out on you guys today. I was up until 4:45am dealing with that damn MML. Stuck bolts, no room to work, and doing it alone made it a lengthy process that I regretted and cursed at several times last night....but it's done, jeep is vibe free, and that clears up more time for me to devote to the axles. Guess I'm gonna have to go out to a JY and pick up a HP D30 another day...hopefully not alone.

Well, we only got one today, and since Mikes on a bigger time crunch than James is, we decided to give it to Mike. There are two more good candidates out there, but due to the lack of help from the jy, we couldn't get them. Both jeeps were sitting on the lower control arms, so there was no way to get the axle out without getting it off those stands. I want to try again Wednesday, maybe the JY will be more helpful then.

I got the hp30 stripped down today, will be taking it tomorrow to get sand blasted, having this done instead of grinding like I did my D44 will make my life much much easier.

So I got everything lined up at the shop, I am taking them to Sunfire Offroad in Sunman IN, it is a little bit of a drive for me, but it will be worth it. I will have both axles geared to 4.88, an aussie in the hp D30, and the rubi locker that I am providing installed in the D44, master install kits, and an open carrier for the front, they are also adding a weld to the inside of the control arm brackets on the D30, all for just over $1000, thats including the price of all the parts (minus the rubi locker) and labor, so all in all a very fair price for parts and labor.

Sun Fire is a great place. I met and got to talk to the guys from there last year at the Calvicade of Customs in Cincinnati and they were top notch and do great work. Another good place semi-local is Hill Top Offroad in Harrison Ohio. They do everything offroad as well and the work and price is amazing. Cant wait to see some pictures man!
