Painted the front axle today. Krylon spray paint smells like "Victory!"

Looking good Mike, that axle looks huge. What wheels did you end up getting

MUCH nicer than my front end but I'm still VERY happy with my new HP44.

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

You should route your front ARB airline down the firewall past the RHD battery tray and then down the upper control arm slightly to the outside and then connect it to the axle.

So your saying run it from one side of the jeep(passenger side) then down the firewall to the pax side upper ctrl arm then run it all the way across the housing? It runs from my solenoid on the driver side fender down the driver side of the grill and zipped to my breather line for about 15 yrs now. NEVER an issue.. Why would I introduce 8 more feet of vulnerable blue line when I can run a straight shot with about 1.5 ft of slack in it? Your kill'n me Blaine.....

Lookin' good Mike - sorry I wasn't able to help paint the axle. Maybe I'll sneak a second coat on it.

Maybe I will even put the rainbow sticker on it you wanted.

Your straight shot looks to me like there's going to be a little bind in your suspension if you get into a crazy flex situation which is what you look set up for. Looks like if you go too far towards pucker you'll yank that line right out. I believe that's what he's referring to.

run it to the drivers side UCA and follow it to the breather. it will keep it out of the way of the other suspension components and any flying debris much better than what you have.

one good hit with a stick and your line is done.

as far as adding 8 more feet of " vulnerable blue line" ask mike or Joe about the time I melted the line and we had to rig it up as a straight shot.

if I hadn't had that extra 8 feet to work with, I would've been SOL halfway up bronco peak.


I switched to the SS line up front so I don't have to think about it ever again.
