Are you leaving it limited slip, or locking it?

Probably just limited slip for now. I'm going to do a high pinion d30 at the same time as this, but it will have an Aussie. This won't be a quick swap. I'm still looking for a hpd30 with 4.10s before I throw the rear under too. I'm going with the artec truss.

Eventually when I'm out of college in two years (hopefully) I'll lock the rear with an ARB.

Billy Mountjoy is a artec dealer might save you some cash on shipping. He goes by Scuba Jeepster on Jeepforum and arkansas crawlers forum. You will like that truss lightnin just used one on his 8.8 swap.

Got a surprise this morning for my birthday. Flat fenders and a wireless winch remote.
Big thanks to my parents.

I believe they are rugged ridge. Have the inner fender built in to them. They are really beefy and seem to be well built.

Had a little bit of fun pranking one of my room mates that set off my fire alarm in my room.

Ordered the rear bumper and swing out tire carrier today.
I like the front bumper besides their coating they use so I figured I go with them again.

New bumper got put on this afternoon. I like the look a lot better. Everything lined up great and all the hardware was included.

Not yet

Debating whether to just paint them or paint the whole jeep while I'm at it. The hood needs paint and so does the windshield frame. If I paint the whole thing I'll be changing the color to sunset orange metallic or some orange/copper color.
