had a blast, but I am tired!!!

Stopped by Jeff's and cut off what was left of my front fenders so have driveway flatties and swapped out the tie-rod on Jimmy's for a ZJ tie-rod, and broke in Jeff's pressure washer.

So how are we going to top this day??

My recommendation for the next large-scale repair day, get some bumpers and especially recovery points done for those that need them and start planning roll cages (wonder where that came from ??) Looks like it may be June before we can do cages, but should have a plan in place...

If we can agree on a common set-up for cages for the YJs and for the TJs we can probably setup a time to do a production line; measuring, cutting, notching and so on and do several cages at one time.

Then start looking at armor....

So next weekend is wrecking yard day, looks like Jason and I will be going Friday, maybe go back again Saturday, grab a poop load of 8.8's, I saw some D44 candidates when I was there last and I'm shopping for new seats, my back is trashed.

And finally, huge thanks to everyone who saved me from doing major repairs and to Paul and his winch Y'all missed a great trail, it was fun going our way

Rolling down that hill would have been, inconvenient

Will go fast at this price! Call (619)449-5510.
Got the message Steve, thanks for calling, or I probably wouldn't have looked onto the forum today or tmrw very clearly for this.

I won't know if I have a spare 400$ for a few days, I'm at like a spare 150$ Until this video I am working on is done. Guess this is what a Salary is like...

None the less I am going to call that number tmrw, see if they can part the set into just the rear and then take a partial payment. I hope =/

If not, back to the drawing board, Thanks though.

Also reminds me, Jason, i was wondering. If you get the 8.8, how much do/would you want for your rear axle?

Just the rear would not be a big help, since the gearing is wrong. Let's just get that locker out, we can cut it apart if we have to. Then, unless there is dmage to the ring, pinion or carrier you just need spiders and side gears.

Yup, you would need both to do 4WD, but at $400 we could bolt them in and be on the road be able to off-road in a matter of hours. You would still have two axles; a good front D30, you could work on the rear when you have the $$ and if nothing else you can turn around and sell the axles down the road and at least break even on them (or have a spare...)

And always offer less, it's not like there's a huge demand for stock YJ axles... Offer $300 or even less, or

maybe the owner would hold them for you?? Down payment? Wash and wax his Jeep? Cut his lawn?

Leaving in a few for Pomona to check out the Expo, the rumor is it's pretty small this time, only one building compared to eight plus acres of outdoors for the fall Expo. We'll bring pics back...

Paul, looks like we may caravan up via the I-5, I'll call...

X2! Kim and I had a great time out there. I'm proud of my little blue monster thats for sure!!

I'm sure we'll come up with some way of topping it. Maybe you'll actually roll next time for us?

Well, here's the big picture. First, I have to find one that has 4.11 gears in it, and preferably a LSD. The LSD isn't a deal breaker but it would be nice. So if I find one this weekend I have to get the brackets welded on, my drive shaft shortened (or buy a new one) and then do whatever I have to do to adapt the brakes.

Of course, before that happens I have to scrape together some money. The Jeep fund is kinda dry at the moment. I'm still working on that part.

To answer your question (finally) I would say for the rear end $100. If anyone thinks thats unreasonable please chime in. I even have a spare set of D35c axles I would through in for free!

seems fair but does that $100 include installation?

Installation is the easy part. A set of U-bolts, some jacks/jack stands and 2 hours and you're set.

grandpapy, I believe your fine is just as much as a daily sticker would be, $5. Here is a link for anyone wanting to get a daily or year long sticker/permit. Its only $30 for the year.
