Ok so I dropped the Jeep off at Onandoffroad4wheeldrive ( www.onandoffroad4wheeldrive.com )

Recieved a call shortly after from Bob Crow, he informed me that my Super35 kit/ARB I ordered was incomplete. All the Axle stuff was there, but the ARB kit was incomplete. Also the ARB I was sent was used and had had the pinion gear grind into it a little. I am calling shenanigans.

I got some phone calls to make....

Well made my phone calls...New ARB should be here by the end of the week. I'll be out of town next week though so I'll have to wait to drive her

Are you re-gearing when you put the super 35 in? Or you gonna stick with the 4.10?
I'm hoping to pull the money together for the super 35 and a re-gear on mine one of these days.
My jeep has both of Chrysler's cruel jokes they played on the Jeep community D35 and 3.07 gears

Nice looking jeep by the way.

Only a handful is right...but we have all 3 colors on the forum...Silver, blue and black

The bumper was about $230 shipped from www.Nates4x4.com. I have no complaints, the bumper is very stout.

Yea I got both cruel jokes played on me too. I have the 32rh 3-speed auto so 4.10s and 33s are about perfect for me. I dropped in a set of 4-banger d35 axles for the junkyard regear. So I am reusing my old gears for the s35 install.

What was the cost and time you put into doing a 4 banger d35 swap? 3.07's and 33's are ****ting on my gas mileage. I went home for spring break last weekend and got 13.4 mpg, all highway driving.

Cost depends on your area...it cost my $700 for both axles and a day to swap in each one.

Just went wheeling for the first time since I got my lift and tires done. The RE 4.5" SF flexes extemely well, the BFG KM2s grab everything and the anti-rock is AWESOME!

And then we went to SONIC!!!! Where a couple highschoolers in a Lexus needed a jump while we were there...




And a few driveway shots... Not tooooo muddy, as I tried to stay out of the mud with the exception of 2 or 3 mud runs.

I just found out we got that Sonic, the next closest one is 2-3 hours away from me


But the girl who came out was scared to get close cause she didn't wanna get dirty. The people who needed their Lexus jumped loved the dirty jeep jumping the clean lexus. I just forgot to get a pic of that one
