Congrats on the shop, it looks nice! There's nothing like having a dedicated spot to take your **** pile apart

Oh and drink beer too

Maybe you should talk to me. Just a thought.

Well, it's just the garage, not a standalone shop (I wish)....but yeah, it's nice to not have to make the 30 minute drive to my dad's (where everything used to be kept) to just work on stuff.

Made from aluminum? Do tell!

I bought a set for myself for Xmas this year. Just thought I would pass the info into this thread, being that Connor does not have a set.

I am jealous of your garage space. I might actually be able to walk through mine comfortably if I didn't have my CJ blown apart in it. Plus a lot of other Jeep parts taking up space...oh well!

Imped quick question,

I remember seeing you had a truss tied into your diff cover, now where you able to clock your axle towards the tcase and still tie into the diff cover or did it require modification?

Here's some old pictures for you. Hopefully that helps you see how I set the mounts up independent of the angle of the bridge.

Hey thanks for the pics, I guess it doesn't matter as much as I thought, cause the joints are free to rotate about that axis

Here's an observation.
Looking at the front of all the Jeeps, guess which one has a JK Dana 44?




Tierod on that one needs some work. On my play grounds that hangs way to low. Any way atleast a tierod flip can be done? Hi steer would complement that setup nicely

Tie rod flips cannot be done on a JK knuckle. It would not steer to the left or right because of the way the drag link mounts. I wish a company would make a set of replacement knuckles for true hi steer. The only option out there are Reid knuckles and they only raise the tierod 1.5 inches.
