New tires mounted today. Tomorrow I am putting in the 4.56 gears and burning on the 1.5" UBE. It should be sitting level then.

So far they do not look like they are going to be. I would go out and take some pics to show you but I fell ill and we have a foot and a half of snow on the ground. Crazy seeing as how yesterday it was 70* and I was cruising around with the windows down and the sunroof open.

I dont have any pics. The wire runs under the passenger seat, behind the plastic trim at the B pillar, behind all the pastic trim at the roofline all the way to the back, then out the grommit that all the rear hatch stuff runs through, then through a small hole drilled in the rear hatch.. The mount I used was a Firestik Doorjamb Mount. FireStik SS204 Adjustable Stainless Steel Vertical Door Jamb Mount

I had a buddy help me install gears yesterday. The new front already had 4.56 gears so just dumped 4.56s in the 8.25 to match. I snapped some shots of the stock control arm mounts vs the arms...












3.55 on the left, 4.56 on the right....



Nice when your buddy has access to a lift big enough to lift 2 Jeeps at once. That is his at the front....he is installing tube fenders.





Took it out for a shakedown run today. I am having a few issues with the transfer case that need to be ironed out and I need to trim the fenders some more....possibly add some bumpstopping.

No pics from today yet except for my buddies JK fender damage and the pic of mine in the driveway afterward.

I love the long arms. Really improved the ride and the flex. I wish I had done it a long time ago.


Another thing that I am wishing I did a long time ago is the gears. I am now getting 19-21 mpgs with 35s!
