Headed to the dealership here in a bit. Wish me luck.
Hey now, let's not get any crazy ideas. That won't happen.

I'll be getting the bolt tomorrow. Diff is still locked. Dealership tech told me that he dealt with one before. He said I have to pull the carrier, pull the actuator, then put the carrier back in, THEN the actuator. Most people don't know to mess with the actuator at all, so this is what happens. He said it won't damage anything, but it's not that hard to fix. Here's hopin.

Rod and I are headed to Fairmount to get the rockers. Once they are mounted, I'll put pics up. I don't want to debut the "finished" look and have it be incomplete.

Here's a teaser though... Look at that sexy ***



If you've got any pic requests, make them now. I'll try and get them in on the next update after the rockers later this afternoon.

James, why is your bumper and gas tank all messed up?!?!?!

As for pic requests. I wil just try to blanket cover them all:

Front: Full front on from low, above, slight to the drivers, slight to the pass.

Suspension: Joints, frame mounts, mount by the skid, shocks, coils perches,

Axle: Pumpkin, brakes, control arm mounts,pinion angle

Rear: The odd bumper, that tank, slight side angle for both pass and driver's side. Tire coverage

Side: Gotta see that new rocking paint scheme.

Top: Can we have some pics of that top, is it a full front enclosure, looks like there is a window in the back.

Flex: Need some flex pics, wouldn't be a build without em.

There is probably more that others will ask for, I just wanted to cover the main stuff. I guess I really am demanding. Looking good there James.

The bumper and tank skid are from wheeling rocks in a lowrider. I'll see what I can do about all those other pics once I get home.

No flex pics until I get the new shocks/coils in. I don't have the shock travel for anything but street driving right now. I also have no rear ds yet. So no 4wd. You better believe I'll have some flex pics as soon as I can.

Nice, I figured you would have flex pics yet since I didn't think the new stuff was in yet. I hear you on the whole low rider thing, I feel like my Jeep sits high, but I am taller than it, so really, it is just the command seating. One day though, one day.

It's all about having a sick rig like that and then running around with the silly looking, empty stock spare carrier Haha just teasin ya man, looking killer!

On a more serious note. Are we assuming that the locker issue was from the guy regearing them and not doing the actuator right? If so, at someone might want to give him a heads up or something if he ever deals with a JK Rubi in the future

The tire carrier shouldn't be too tough of a problem to fix. Just need to drill a few holes.

I'm going to call the gear guy tomorrow. Who knows, he might offer to fix it. I'm sure he will. Tim was awesome to work with.

Rod and I just got done with the rockers. It's pitch black outside so I have to see what pics came out. I'll post up in a few. I'll wait to get the pic requests until it's light out.

New coils are here.


Pre-loading the rockers.


Rockers and no doors.


Gangsta James drilling the underside mounting holes.


All done.





The "****light"


And here's what I don't like... Granted there's bolts underneath mounting through the floors here, but still, I can't get over the ill fitment against the side of the tub. They fit great against the rear corners, but I HATE the gap between the tub. Meh.

I'll get more, better pics tomorrow. Rod said not to mind the swirl marks, he's going to take care of them. Enjoy.

And no, the new coils aren't in yet. I'll do that when I re-measure for the new shocks.

Are you sure there's not a burr on the edge of the corner guard which prevents the rocker from fully seating on the tub?
