I have a lot into the axles. It's one of those things where just assume its gonna cost a small fortune to run 40s comfortably. Rear axle was the cheapest. 100$ for the axle and about 1200$ for all the goodys. The front was 750$ and about 1800$ for all the goodys. And I'm not even close to being done on the front axle still need. Need a locker, 35 spline stub shafts, u joints, warn hubs. Then it should be completed. That's a other 1000-1300 for the front.

By no means is it a daily driver. But it will be driven on the street. I'm gonna enjoy driving it every time I can.

So I built the 05 LJ to 2" lift with 35s. Performs perfect. Got my new house and ready to continue the build of my 99 TJ. I also am planning on fabricating a complete 4 link rear and 3 link front suspension upgrade on the black 98" TJ

You think so? Where's the fun in having someone else build your rig?

I like it a lot actually, then someone else has to deal with the headaches and whatnot quite commonly associated with builds. I do quite a bit of my own stuff but when I can sub out I do it in a hearbeat - aint got time fo dat!

Anywho, looking awesome! The black one is yours too?

Not much of a update on the 99 one ton build. But on the 98 black tj I started putting a Clayton long arm kit on it. It has been a bunch of work getting everything to work correctly with a jeep that has only 2" lift. Making sure everything has all the clearance and freedom of movement is a chore. Another score is I picked up a 98 tj that is purple for only 400$!!!! It has broken upper control arm mounts in the rear but that is such a easy fix that will be fixed in no time.

I got these fenders on eBay from a company I never heard of. But they were the right price for a budget friendly jeep. 200+ shipping. I only have about 1300$ in to that jeep including the purchase price
