You make the TJ look small you big mofo! Seriously though, Jeep looks good and the wheeling pics were sweet.

Sorry for the hijack, brian
i didnt do any regearing in the rear. just put in a powertrax in the factory 8.25. i plan to regear over winter.

did you have to pull the diff to install your front, i forget what the ratio cut was for being able to pull the pin without removing the ring gear

yeah since you're on the small end, you might not have to. If that's the case, you won't need to pull the carrier out of the diff (although it makes it easier) - as long as you can get the rolling pin & cross shaft out. But pulling the ring gear off wasn't bad - the hardest part was getting my carrier out - we ended up using my winch and a ratchet strap to get my carrier out of the housing...

Oh, and if you're doing your own gears - I'd love to learn how, if you've had experience doing it before...

ive never done them. but i work with tight tolerances all the time at work and do such things but on a much larger scale. ive rebuilt a few manual trannys and transfer cases so i couldnt see it being much harder than any of that.

Looking good, Imma paint mine all Black, and the R a nice bright freakin PINK!
I just love the silver too much to paint her.
I'm thinking I might just go with the overlines. Even with 35's it looks like you could stuff alotta rubber under that fender LOL

Girls like STROKIN too!

I think all black with a pink R would look good. I like the idea.

I have mine bump stopped right now because my shocks suck, but with my current bumpstops I could fit and stuff a 37" tire...The overlines should look pretty trick on the apex.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

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.
