yea, 4th tire came yesterday, got it mounted today. The tards at discount tire put a 3" valve stem on it, I kid you not, friggin morons. I looked at the manager and said, you've gotta be kidding me, I'll break this thing off in 20 minutes. They swapped in another one, after he said a few choice words about his hired help.

Today we ran into problem after problem, the machine shop that pressed my bearings on the 44 put the retainer plate on backwards, so they had to redo it. We had a bolt for the stock sway bar on the 44 broke in a welded on nut, so I actually just got back from Roberts (rkates) house with Rod and he helped us get it off and weld in a new nut (thanks again man). We've had a hell of a time getting new bolts. My zj tie rod is bad, the bushing on the rod end is shot, so I've gotta make a run to the pick a part in the morning to hopefully grab a good one. Nothing went right today. But, I knew I would have one of those days, and its over now, so tomorrow will go great....hopefully. The front axle is completely in, everything is on but the tie rod, just need to tighten all the bolts and put the bump stops (hockey pucks) in. Rear axle is now 100% ready to go in, should be a cake walk.

Man I can't wait to wheel.....I need it so bad

The front axle is almost in, the calipers and rotors need to be hooked up, control arms need to be tightened, stearing aligned, and everything greased. The rear axle is hanging, the big hole in the backing plates for the discs need to be enlarged a little for the bearing on the axle shafts to fit through, and the brakes need to be compleatly bled. It's getting close!

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"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.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

I still haven't seen it, I just got the call that it was taken for a test drive last night and is working great. Great ride, and the gearing is perfect, so I hear. I'm still waiting on pics too, but I'll probably see it in person this evening.

you'll see it tomorrow I just took it for a decent drive...no vibes, nothin....I don't have the correct speedo gear yet so its hilarious to see my speedometer at 90

James, I thought I emailed you a pic...must not have gone through. I am not releasing any pics until after the club sees it

I gotta go wire up my pump and switch for the locker. I put it in 4wd in some gravel, that aussie is gonna take some getting used to, but I am sure i'll like it!
