Also while they are installing the gears, Im going to have them sleeve the axle. Im excited, but my wallet isnt haha
Holy balls dude! You're making strong moves. So....37s?

By the way, When you head out to IRO next let me know. I'd like to see the shop.

Sure man...It'd be cool to see their place. If you do it on a day I have off I'm down to tag along. We'll find something to do (browse Jeep parts, drive the RC crawlers, eat food, whatever). Oh yeah and as far as the 35/12.50/17 MTR's go...those should work out perfect. In a year from now when you decide to switch to 37s I'll swoop in and put the MTR's on my rig lol

Nice build. I like how you wheel it and mod it as you go. That's how I've always done it.

Gnarly carnage too.

Thanks man!



Well the appointment is set. June 4th she goes in for gears and sleeved front. They say the whole process should take 2 days, but Im hoping it gets done a bit quicker then that.

After I spent most of last week, deciding the parts I wanted, I talked to Jason @ Krawl Offroad and Joe @ Quadratec and ordered a few parts. Everything is scheduled to be here before the weekend, so hopefully I have a chance to get it done before next week before the regear.

Sorry for some reason I just saw this post, Im in MN for the summer but if I do make it back to Colorado this summer with the Jeep I will let ya know. I'd love to run it again.
