got the springs installed and was surprised with a winch for a graduation present from my brother. A used ramsey platinum 9500lb winch with a new winch line. This isn't the actual winch but you get the idea.

Haven't really had much time for the jeep lately, put on a magnaflow exhaust when I had to put on a new downpipe to attempt to fix my exhaust leak. I bought a new cat for it but had trouble getting the o2 sensor out so I left it. ( I had an exhaust leak so bad that I smelled it in the cab all the time) I'm not sure why it is still leaking. I'm hoping its not the manifold but I don't know what else it would be. I picked up these two axles for very cheap. The dana 30 was thrown in so I didn't have to do a gear swap. The dana 30 has an ected locker and 4.10 gears. The 8.8 has 4.10's with the factory limited slip and already has tj brackets burned on. It has a seal leaking but besides that it should be in good shape. I have a winch guard from savvy that needs to be put on, a new rancho steering stabilizer, genright rocker guards and tube fenders. I'm considering going ahead and putting i in a super 88 kit when I have to fix the 8.8 axle seal since the bearing is probably bad. I think I'm going to go ahead and do a full set of savvy control arms when I did the 8.8 swap, considering their nice steering and track bars, also need to do a sye/cvds sometime. The pictures are of where the downpipe met the manifold collector pipe and of the new axles.

Changed my mind and went with a full set of metal cloak control arms and track bars. I've yet to get them installed. I'm debating on installing those white rhino fenders. My plan at this point is to eventually go with a one inch body lift on top of the three inch curry springs I have already. If I go with regular tube fenders with the amount of lift described with my metalcloak arms will have have enough usable suspension travel to justify going to highlines ?

Also on the above question I plan on running either 35 inch LTBs or Q78s

I've got the front lowers installed. So far getting the old bolts out have been a treat. One bolt was seized to the old bushing sleeve. This caused me to bend up the bracket a bit. The old sleeves all fell out of the bushing as soon as they came out. I imagine this means they are worn out.

Thanks, it finally seems like its coming together. I'm hoping to get those axles cleaned up to be dropped in and finish getting the suspension overhauled. The jeep already rides better with both lowers replaced.
