This morning was adequately productive. First, I installed the transfer case linkage bracket from Advance Adapters. It took about two hours including a couple brief coffee breaks, etc. Most of the work was dealing with tight spaces, since I did not drop the transmission crossmember.

After that, I finally found my pickle fork set & pulled the pressed-in sway bar end links.

At the shortest setting, the JKS (PN 2000) links are just a bit longer than the stock links.

At stock height, the JKS links are about perfect.

Someday, a Currie Antirock system will replace them. For now, they are free (leftovers from my old XJ).

Took the heep for a drive this afternoon, and the Advance Adapters bracket totally eliminated the rattle. I am more than pleased with it, and the transfer case shifts a little easier now, as well.

That was the best purchase (for $35) I've made.

Much appreciated! I posted a link to the bracket (page 3, post #35).

Went with the poor man's plasma cutter. (Someday...)

It's a bit rudimentary now, but the dremel tool will spice it up.





I used the clips/screws that held in the original bumper milk jugs. Turned out really clean!

Looks great man. I too am building my Jeep on a budget. Gotta save every penny just to get one thing. It's kinda fun,more fun than just throwing money at things ahha.

On the list now: So far have about $880 into the heep.

- Still need to install the powertrax in the Dana 30
- Have a rear bumper/tire carrier being made
- Once bumper is on, I'll decide on measurements for a lift, but so far I'm thinking 2" front/1.25" rear to level it
- Buy steering box skid
- Buy steering dampener

With good recovery points front/rear and the front locker, I'll see how it goes this winter and go to stage 2 in the spring....
