Brand new alloy USA gears I bought them here on the classified section. I was planning on getting the other set for my rear but I going to go with 4.56 gears since I'm trying to swap in a 32rh tranny and the 4.88 will be to high for a 3 speed tranny.

Box is open but new, you are welcome to see them.

i only have a couple little things i need to do before i can hit the trail. i still have to install an extended pass brake line and put on some MORE shock extenders for the rear. as of right now i only have like 2" of uptravel in the rear.

for the brake line i heard a 1990 chevy c1500 2wd pass brake like is about 5 inches longer with the same thread pitch. someone said they used it before and it worked. so i ran to autozone and picked one up for $13. better than spending $100 on braided extended lines.



the only thing(so far) that i dont like is how the rear rides ever since i put on the Doetsch tech shocks on. the rear is really bouncy. like bouncy enough that it damn near gets me sea sick.....

oh and it sits a little high in the front. ill figure something out for that but no big deal right now


heres so photos





There is a trail around here, that is good for finding weak spots in Jeeps. Wanna go?

All about that unibody life.

As of right now I'm not having any problems really. But if you wanna donate so free tires I'm down :-)

Got the HP30 in today and installed the lift I got from Dustin, it's a little taller (well, a lot taller) then he said it would be

Think you'll make the JV trip in November?
I'll be driving past Blaines tomorrow morning on the way to Vegas for my daughters beauty pageant.

If you have some things that aren't too big & can fit inside the back of an rental SUV (think Hyundai Santa Fe) I may be able to assist.

I'm trying to see if I can fit a JV trip into my schedule. Sure'd LOVE to go!

You drove all the way to Texas when you could have just gone to Arby's?
