When I do the SYE I want to bring the t-case back up and put some belly armor on. If I am going to attempt to hit the trail with you, I am gonna need some idiot proofing to keep damage down.
What did you do wrong with the 8.8? Pinion?

Once you get the sye we'll bring your trans up and build a skid.

Then we need to hit the trails. Im hoping maybe late next month. I want to take some leave

I purposely set the pinion a little low, but now it seems to be too low. Not sure if the springs are settling funny or what, but the pinion angle is pointing to far down. I have a set of shims, but I would rather it be right than half-assed with shims. I'm on leave now for a few days, start the new job on Monday.

i think you're definitely going to have problems trying to set pinion seeing that your 4" SOA without a SYE. normally without a SYE you would set the pinion parallel with the trans output. but that would give you a STEEEEEEEP driveline angle.


what're you doing this weekend? wanna come over and **** with my jeep with me? i gotta see whats wrong with my front end and im getting tired of ****ing with the jeep alone. i get lonely

I'm not sure whats going on this weekend. Got some things to wrap up and get taken care of before I check in down in Stone Bay. I'll let you know either way. I need to order some sheet metal to fix the rest of the tub.

I was going to order the driver's side front as it was replaced with a piece of 12 gauge bent with a BFH. Both sides under the rollbar have rot and where the PO was too lazy to remove the seatbelt bolts and just drilled a big new hole. Just a bunch of WTF that needs to be addressed. I have some sheet metal here, just not sure if it will be more cost effective (read: less pain in my a$$) to get the prebent and correct sized pieces. I hate doing sheet metal work and welding.
