^^^ Mmmm. Boatsides.

I got the ****ing gears done. Glad I didn't settle for the first "final" set up. Found out that one of the bearing races was 2 thou taller than the other, throwing my pattern off on final assembly. Taking that into account, I got a much better set up, but I had to take the pressed on bearings and races out a few times. I'll paint up the axle for good measure and toss it back under the Jeep.

Next up is some JJs for the front axle:

Painted the rear. It's drying now. Since it's a summer only Jeep, it wasn't in bad shape, but since I had the axle pulled, figured I'd clean it up. The HP D30 is back on the operating table for the JJs I posted above, and final torque of the pinion nut. Never did that when I put it all together. Fear of commitment perhaps.

JJs are mounted on the front axle. I only tack welded the replacement for the bracket. I'll finish welding it after I test fit the front axle. Everything torqued and buttoned up. Hung it from a shelf upright in the garage to get it out of the way. Rear axle is all buttoned up, filled and back under the Jeep. Just need to tighten up the nuts and bolts and bleed the brakes, then it's done.

Running out of stuff to do.

Thanks. I think my next thing might be making a tire swing for my rear bumper.

What's the XJ skid plate like? Similar to a TJ? I've never looked.

Rear axle is all snugged down.
I need to bleed the rears and adjust the parking brake. Need someone's foot to help with the bleeding.

Brakes are bled and beautiful. Wheels are back on and it's back on the ground. Parking brake needs to get done later.

Removed the license plate and mount. I might ditch the plastic mount. Cleaned up my fender flares.

SnoFari! 170+ people in West Branch this weekend, trying to make the most of a little bit of snow. Had good time today, more to come tomorrow.
