Hey Joe, Just read this thread today and looking good. Seen the 35 spline outers purchased but it looks like your rebuild is with the stock stuff. Make sure you put those 35 splines in with drive flanges before you hit the hammers, the 27 spline outers cost me over $500 in repair parts not to mention a 11 hour extraction from wrecking ball. My old Warn 35 spline hubs are now toast from rockrash so drive flanges are the way to go.
You still going to run the 8.8 out back? I really need to try and hook up with you guys this winter.
Yea, at this point the stock 35 spline inners will stay, along with the 31 spline stock outers & stock hubs. However, in the coming months that'll change to 35 spline chromo inners & chromo 35 outers and drive flanges (along with a regear & ARB).
An 11 hour extraction from Wrecking Ball sound like no fun AT ALL.
Speaking of Wrecking Ball....I *think* we were doing it when this pic was taken of you, with me following.
At this point I just need to get it under the Jeep & now that I have wheels & tires for it, plus a good portion of the steering stuff (I don't have the hydro stuff yet) its basically ready to install.
Yep, the Super 88 is staying out back for now (as much as I'd rather have something with more beef). I'm gunna adapt & space the rear out some so that I can run the new wheels & make the rear ~4" wider than it is right now. Its getting coilovers and a wheelbase stretch in the rear too, along with a GenRight 23 gallon fuel cell.
The rear tire & Jerry can carrier will go away, along with a new rear flush bumper fabricated that'll replace the current one.
