Got ahead of my self and ordered a 24" led light bar.... 5000 lumens should be sufficient.

I'm gonna try to go wheeling every time I'm home from work, that is if I don't stop building it and start using it...

I'm the opposite, I need to stop wheeling it so much and start working on it more.

37s are perfect for michigan, specifically the mtr/k's awesome tire and rides really nice for a larger tire, keep your jeep as low as possible by doing a highline to keep it more stable. And raising your skids will make a world of difference also.

Oh yeah, I already have arched Metalcloaks, with 35's on a 4" lift. I'll do a 1" BL for the UCF ultra high skid. Re-gearing to 5:13's most likely.

Good call on ucf I hear good things about them. I am going to fabricate a crossmember with a transmission mount and have a flat skid plate. And clearance my tub as needed. I already have the cable shifter so linkage issues will not be a problem.

I know you weren't going to be getting much done to it, but maybe you waxed it?

Yes I was gone for five weeks for work this last time. But a couple days ago I finished the rear axle completely. Setup the gears and installed the disc brake kit. I started the installation of the plumbing for the full hydro steering. Just ran out of time. Next time I work on it I will get the steering f completely done. And a flat skid plate is in the works too.
