Finally got around to ordering the hydraulic-assist parts from PSC. Lance has everything on order & I should have the parts within a couple of weeks. I already have the ram, mounts, & cooler.

So I have just about everything for the front axle/3-link in the garage:

3-link frame mounts
DOM
JJs
3-link bridge (Clayton)
New shock towers
Fox 2.0 w/res shocks tuned by Alltech Motorsports
New axle mounts for links, shocks, & AR
16" Vanco kit w/knuckles reamed for tie rod flip.
Currie steering w/Savvy tie rod (already installed)
PSC hydraulic-assist for Currie steering
New unit bearings
New Synergy ball joints

Still need to get Evo sleeves & Superior shafts. But at least I'm at the point that once it gets a bit warmer I can get 'er done.

What made you choose the Evo sleeves over the other brands on the market?

Honestly, the Evo kit are the only ones I've seen (up 'til now) that come pre-cut & ready to install. Their reviews are good & the price is decent.

However, since I saw your question I've looked a little harder & actually found the Synergy kit at Poly. I'm a big fan of Poly Performance. They've always been easy to work with and I like their parts. Not to mention, their prices are better! If you wouldn't have asked that question, I would never have noticed the Synergy kit so thanks!

The reasons above are enough to pick the Synergy kit over Evo. I'll keep using what's worked so far until Poly lets me down (don't see that happening).

Thanks again!

PSC stuff is in!!! Much sooner than I thought they'd get it here.


Lance was easy to work with. I just called, told him I was looking for the setup Blaine designed, showed him the Black Magic website so he'd know what I'd already bought, & voila'.

I haven't checked everything yet, & I'm a little anxious about the install, but I'm looking forward to learning & getting HYDRO-ASSIST!

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.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

New things have arrived!

Snagged a steering box skid from Savvy. Also have some really nice LED lights (lighbar for front bumper & 2 backup lights) that I ordered through IEcrawlerTJ01. If you're looking for some LED bars, PM that guy. He'll take good care of you

Also have a new rear seat coming. Corbeau (red & black) to match the front seats.

All-in-all things are stacking up nicely. Jeep is in the garage right now so it's easier to work on, but sucks since it's not drivable & the weather has been beautiful.

Just wanted to check-in & say Merry Christmas to everyone.

Haven't been around much, but do lurk from time to time. Having a little Jeep hiatus until the baby arrives. Then it's game-on again!

Unfortunately, no.

The new baby (well now he's 19months) really kind of delayed things, but it's all good. We're doing a pretty good job of turning him into a Jeep kid!

All of my garage time has been spent working on my wife's car. She has a '66 Mustang that I'm re-doing the top end of the motor, converting to disk brakes, and replacing the suspension. Of course the unexpected hiccups come along with doing that as well.

I still have all the Jeep parts stacked up in the garage. Just haven't had the opportunity to do what I want to do with it yet.

The best news is we're going on a family Jeep trip to Colorado next Summer (August) to wheel some trails. My Father-in-law and Brother-in-law both have JKs and we're all going out together. The guys are driving the Jeeps & we're flying the women out & meeting them there. No way in hell I'm driving 8 hours across KS and CO with the wife and kids

So that means the expectations from the wife are to have the Jeep ready by August.

That sound's like a great plan. I have dreams of taking my oldest boy out to EJS someday. Trying to negotiate the in-laws motor home and trailer.
