Just a few things to add.. non related to my Jeep. Finally got my old axles on my Dad's Jeep. Clearances up front are tight but they work. Got the rear shaft for it yesterday but not waiting on rear uppers and we'll see how she does. Also Got some new tires on my Mom's Jeep. 35x12.5 Trail Grapplers. She doesn't have a lift right now but she needed tires so we decided to go big and lift it later. They fit for road driving just have to take your time pulling into parking lots and going over speed bumps and still its only rubbing the inner plastic.

So got the head out today. I still can't see any signs of a cracked head or a bad gasket, but I'm going to replace it anyway now that I have it off. Will be a little while before I'll get back together though. So for now I guess my Jeep will be sitting headless for a little while.

Well got the motor back together.. Sorry no pics. But she runs.. Got a few little things I need to do now before I'll be back out on the trail. Ordered some custom control arm joints today. Will probably be next week before I get them. Need to do something about that shaft I broke.. I bought a stock set. But I'm thinking about just ordered an in we chromo for that side after reading about the short side being the weakest. Also need to install my warn hubs and get some camber shims.. Then she'll be ready for the trails again. Will keep everyone posted

New control arm joints came in today. Will try and get those put in tomorrow. Went to swap out the hub on the long side the other day and noticed that the U-joint in that shaft was toast too. Got some new u joints put in today. So now all I have to do is get the nub out of the carrier from the broke shaft and put it all back together.



Also added something a little special...

They are currie.. Ironman fab made them up custom for me using currie builder joints. They have 3" of shoulder and 6" of thread so I could push my axle further out

Finally pulled the Jeep out of the garage after about of month. Got the new joints, lock outs, and shafts in. Drove it around and she rides a little better with axle sitting where it wants. Sitting with around 106" wheelbase now which is what i've been wanting. Though there is more then enough thread in the bung to be safe I'm still a little unsettled with as much shaft exposed on those joints, might end up gusseting them to avoid deflection.

ok so its been a little while. Had a little issue with my front shock mounts. Had them angled up at first but that just caused them to bottom out way too quick so had them flopped so that they were angled down instead.. Actually rides a little bit better now too. Also fixed the breather on the 44. The truss sat right over the factory breather so had to cut a hole to fish the hose down to it. Was suppose to be going to Gulches yesterday but got rained out. So a buddy of mine invited me to his farm to get a little wheeling in. The Jeep did alright. Was a little wet and my $150 toyos didn't do all that great but nothing broke and the new head held up to some skinny pedal so I was happy. Did realize that the rear part of the body has become real weak. Even with the rear stiffeners. Every time I'd flex the rear I'd hear some loud pops. So I need to find some way fix that, if I can lol Right now I' focusing on the OSCAR trip in april. I'll go on other trips between then but I need to get some chromos and some tires. So will be trying to save for those. Hopefully I can have them before april, but we'll see how that goes.





Some poser shots.






Had a little butt pucker moment out there. Climbed this rock and didn't get far enough over. When I tried to go back down I slid off. I swear it felt like it was going over.




Also got pretty deep in some spots.
