yea the trail was really tight. Couldn't get two trucks by one another so we had to plan the order ahead of time based on recovery points and how well each truck was equipped lol. Thus the reason I was in front of the MJ lol.

Updates!!!!

Leaf packs are assembled with the new liners for the last time. Shot them with a final coat of paint. And.....DONE!





Also picked up a 136A alternator from a 98 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L. Also grabbed some alternator brackets from a wrecked XJ to grind. Ground them down to fit the larger alternator, and painted. Also cleaned and painted housing on the alternator.

Nice build dude. My XJ is also affectionately known as "the Danger Cart". However, the 4.0 does a little better than a ball of meat.

Was a very productive weekend...



Finally found some tires...

33x12.5x15 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZs on 15x10 procomp series 98 wheels. Letters still have the blue coating on them....

picked up for 800 bones down in Virginia.




I think i need to bolt them on before I lift it :w00t:


Little difference....

Then after picking the tires up I went home and pulled the locker out of the axle sets I picked up. Found pieces of grenaded bearings inside....nice...



Saturday I went to to shop and installed the locker in my rear end



Driving with a locker in the back with a 5-speed is...interesting...It's gonna take some getting used to for sure. Part of the issue right now is my rear tires are slightly different sizes (full tread 235 and a worn 30), so the locker isn't as happy as it could be, and i get some massive torque steer under hard acceleration/deceleration. Fishtales though a grassy field like a boss though!


Also installed my stainless steel brake lines and bled all the old fluid out of the system.

Tried to install my Skidrow Transfer Case skid at the same time, but the instructions call for you to bolt up through the crossmember, which needless to say is impossible. So i drilled and tapped holes through the first layer instead and have to go pick up bolts to match the new setup. Fail Skidrow...FAIL.

I cut and folded my rear quarter panels Sunday (fenders to come later). I used Paraleyes's writeup on JeepForum as a starting point, but then kinda just started cutting stuff on my own. Worked out well lol.
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/c...t-way-1007865/

Still need to rivet the **** out of it, seal it up, and bondo/paint. But looks good anyways. Also stubbed the rear bumper a bit to match.


(this looks weird at this angle lol)

Just to look at it, it doesn't look like they will fit in the wheel wells. What do you need to do to make em fit?

You should, in no way, take any of this personally. It's just business. So to recap, I come in peace, I mean you no harm, and you all will die. Gallaxhar out.

4.5" lift is going on first weekend in June. I'll be trimming about 1.5" from the wheel well lips (up to the pinch seam), and installing rear TJ flares front and back. Beyond that I just need to bumpstop to keep them from getting cut up.
