Looks like this thread is just a place for me to tell myself what I've done, at the least it'll serve me as a history.

New seal in the trans:


Threw a new one in the t-case while it was out:


Back together now, we'll see how it holds fluid.

Are those the actual highlines from genright or did the guy that previously had them just mod them to be highlines.

Cuz it looks like there is a gap at the bottom like DIY highlines

Looking good. How do you like the BDS 3" so far? Better yet, how does the wife like the lift so far. Has she been driving it?

She hasn't driven it really. I think I'll throw the rear sway on at least and align it. The BDS stuff has been flawless, even with no bumpstops. The passenger shock is fully compressed in this pic I snapped yesterday after reassembly:





No trans fluid on the floor today!

Seem to be missing pics of the trans work you did on page 2... would like to see that (maybe it's just my browser gone tarded).

Long time since any updates, here we go!

Terrible "clunk" from passenger side when steering/falling off rocks. No swaybar on the thing, so as I suspected the trackbar mount hole on the axle had 'wallowed' out:



The hole in the rear was even worse.

I bought a new trackbar (at first I thought the bushing on mine was shot, who knows, but it can't hurt to replace it). I bored out the bushing a bit to 7/16", the mount holes too, and got a 7/16" bolt to replace the torx stocker.

New toy in the garage:



As you may know the stock nut has a tab that makes it easier to tighten, you don't have to hold it with a wrench as it just wedges against the bracket while you tighten. I wanted to try to copy that:





Cleaned off the nut too:



Give me a break, it's the third time I've welded ever-



In with red loctite and bubba torque:



No more clunk!

Oh, and had to get this:



Thanks for checking out my heep
