All I have is my phone. Plus I think James would like to be the one to do that.

Just an update, THE PUMPINATOR IS OUT OF THE GARAGE! I got to take the first spin in it to make sure everything felt ok. After that I handed the keys off to Rod. He pulled out of my driveway around 6 ish headed up to get James from work. As far as more info and pics...............................you'll have to wait for James.

There was a small hiccup with the brakes on the way to James and I rear ended a Semi doing 70 mph, Jeeps totaled.















































Just kidding about the rear ending thing, Jeeps fine, but there was still a hiccup, one of the bolts that hold the caliper bracket things to the knuckle fell out on the way there. No luck getting a replacement at any of the parts stores, have to wait till the morning to get one from the stealership.


Jeep rides great, there are a few bugs that need to be worked out, like the front locker is engaged without any power to it(going to ask about that at the dealership), and the master cylinder needs bled. Some more weight in the back would help out the ride a little, as well as a rear sway bar too. The Pit Bulls sound great on the interstate, they have a mild buzz sound, not too loud.

The thought of those nice new pitbulls being subjected to a locked front end on the road makes me sad

Can't wait to see the next update from James. BTW Rod, if you wanted to scare us, you should have done it as multiple posts. I started to read it, and then started to go crazy, but then realized there was a BIG break, and knew it wasn't true. Hope the rest of the bugs get exterminated (ha ha ha, i'm such a "punny" guy)

I didn't have the camera on me at the time, so there were no pics. Rod is coming over in the morning, we are headed to the dealership to find out about the bolt and the front locker. I hope the locker is simple. Pics tomorrow.

"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.

James, don't forget to introduce you Jeep like you swapped TJ d44s in, don't go right out and say they are from a JK. Give him a chance to say something like, you have no pump, or somehting like that. I wonder how confused the guy would be until he is let in on the little secret that it is a much newer axle than expected.

You should hear me at a parts store.

"What year vehicle do you have sir?"

"Any late model Wrangler will work. Don't sweat it."

"Huh?"

"Anything I buy from you I'm not using for it's intended application, just pick a year, any of the late models will work."

"Ok, then... What do you have?"

"An 05, 07, 08, TJK"

I can't wait to hear that story tomorrow.
Eh, sounds like me, when I go to the parts store I am already starting to say, "Well... I have an SE, but put in sport, SE never bring up my motor." Mine is stock and I have that problem.
Reminds me of Zach's foray with the guys at Autozone (flux capaciter, come on my, high performance blinker fluid should have been the way to go)

He could but every time he did, massive amounts of rubber were left behind. With those new pitbulls, he'll probably be able to idle up the wall. Those things are KNARLY. They make my KM2's look like AT's.

lol I've been doing that wall forever... on street tires. The only times I couldn't was when it was too wet for the Land Terrains to grab. With the Rockers, I'm going to climb over Connors Jeep... while he's climbing the wall.

Headed to the dealership here in a bit. Wish me luck.
