Ok so got some work done friday. Went out of town friday night so this was all I was able to get done with work.. Got all the outers on. Just kinda threw it together so we can set up the track bar and drag link. After some more looking I'll probably be able to run my TnT track bar frame mount for the time being with a little trimming. So probably next weekend after finals I probably get that done. Then it will be too the D60 and getting that under.. So close now. I do also have to find out why my tires are leaking down. but I'll worry about that later..

Haven't had a chance to run them yet. I had a set of 31s in this same tread pattern and a set of 33s in the kevlar pattern and loved them both. From what I can tell so far they are a very heavy tire so I am little concerned on the stress they will put on the axles, especially the HP44. The lugs are also extremely hard so I'm sure I'll be spinning up a lot of things and breaking some of the lugs off. But for what I paid for them I can't complain. I do plan on getting either a set of Blue labels or kevlars later on so I'll have something a little lighter.

haha no its more like his dad is tired of it being at his shop. Went from a weekend or two to a few months so its got to go. Not too worried about it. We are going to finish up the front. I can do the rear here at my place so.. Just going to be crammed over here cause my dad's Jeep is in the garage at the moment awaiting my old axles.

Got the track bar and drag link fabbed up today. Will be painting it all tomorrow and throwing it under for hopefully the last time. I need to have the Jeep done this week so will be just giving up on the rear and taking it up to the 4x4 shop monday and letting them do the brackets on it. Then will throw it under as soon as I get back. Hopefully will be able to début it at the local poker run put on by Clemson 4 wheel center next weekend.

Thanks guys! Yeah pulled it one last time to burn the TB mount in and paint her up.. Realized after I pulled it I didn't do shock mounts. But that'll be easy to do once its back in so I'm not worried. Dropping the rear off in the morning. So its looking good for having it done by the end of the week!!
