Axles are done. I'm heading down tomorrow morning to pick them up. If Rod and I can be very efficient and get things done, I want to have the front in and DONE tomorrow and the rear truss and driveshaft measurements taken. The tires probably won't be here until Tuesday or next week so that sucks. But, everything should be complete by the time they get here. The Rockcrusher diff covers showed up today....niiiiccce.

Stopping power


ZJ backing plates after a little sandblasting


Rockcrusher diff covers


The turdy 5 ready to part ways


SYE and Rokmen belly pan ready to rock.


I'm still awaiting a few small items and the Rokmen gas tank skid. Heading out now to go pick up the axles with Rod from Sunfire Offroad. Pictures to come later today of sexy axles hopefully under the jeep.

Well, it's ugly. Here's a few things off of the top of my head for you to get a good idea. These are with shipping if applicable.

Cost of gears--$900
Tires--$985
D44--$350
HP D30--$100
Currie arms--$732
RK 4 link--$440
SYE--$220
Belly pan, MML, BL--$561
Gas skid--$256
Superior shaft kit--$278
Wheels--$211
Brakes--$350
Switch--$19
Diff covers--$167

That's $5,569 right that. I didn't calculate ball joints and all of the other little things that were purhcased. I'm going to allocate at least $300 to the little, random stuff. 35s aren't cheap man.

I'd rather pay that much then pay my own bill lol.

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.

That's not as much as what I thought you would have spent. Great job. This should be in a magazine for jeep build on a budget lol

Oh yeah, and whats up with that little knife on top of your centric box Connor? I need to add a KaBar to my collection still, I like those. I've got several little knives. Ask Rod about my collection while he's around.

Wow, the last couple days have been LONG. A big thanks to Rod and Brian for helping out. Progress happened today--not as much as I would have liked, but I'm pretty unrealistic at times. We worked for over 12 hours today...much of the time driving back and forth to Lowes (twice) and Autozone (4 times). Here's some pictures...

Neither can I, believe me. Today will be a productive day. The guys will be here at 3 and I'm expecting the front and rear to be totally done. Brakes, control arms, everything. The tire delivery date is Wednesday, which really sucks since I have an exam that day and will be on campus most of the day....sooo, someone (Rod maybe) will have to be here to take delivery of the meats.
