I bet she does. hehehe

Are you planning on using a Speedohealer or anything to get your speedo back in synch after doing the bigger meats? I'm like 3mph off at highway speed with my 33s.

So what are you using to do that? I was looking at the SpeedoHealer, but you have a programmer that does more? I dont remember reading about it in your thread.

Im using a Superchips Jeep Programmer. It allows me to program for tire size change, gear ratio, better gas mileage, read check engine lights, 4hi locker mod and other shiznit.

Off topic are those alloy axle seals you have still causin issues?

Yeah! I hate them. Maybe if I had read that you can use form a gasket to keep them in place, I would feel better about them.

Got started tearing down the rear suspension to start my 4link.

Few before shots:




Stripping down and removing the rear axle:




Cutting and Grinding (not the final product) Such a b*itch







So worked for about 5 hours and we got the axle out, frame lower control arms brackets cut off, all brackets on the axle cut off and ground down, trac bar bracket cut off, and started to cut the upper spring perch.

Im happy with that progress, anyone have any tips on how to cut the spring perches on the inside of the frame!?

You put those axle tube caps on yet? We took mine off today, and you should see what happens to them when they spin in the tube like mine did. I'll have to get a pic up so you can see them.

Now about tops. I know you said that you got a Rampage, and I saw pics of it. And I know you said you like it. Are there any cons in your opinion? I gashed my top on a tree while doing an off camber section,mso I need a new top. Do you still have to se the door surrounds? One got a little piece broken off, but I can fix that. I really thought I would have more time to figure out what top to get, but such is Honey Badger wheelin.

You ever sell that Novack shifter? Looks like I might have to do one of those as well. My linkage is all F'd up. At least that all I hope is wrong with the Transfer Case.

Lu, when I removed my spring perches, I just cut the outside welds and then beat on them with a BFH back and forth until I broke the welds on the inside of the frame rail. Are you re-using the perches or replacing them with aftermarket?

For the top you need door surrounds, windshield header and tailgate retainer.

Extra Novak shifter I had is long gone.
