Tell me about it...That's what I've been doing too. My poor CJ thinks I forgot about it. I walk by it every day, once on my way out to my truck, once again on my way back in the door. Paychecks sure look nice, but I've got no time for anything else but sleep.

Nice vids there!

I commented on the exhaust thread, but what cam is that? Sounds like a pretty chunky solid cam. I'd love to know the specs on the motor. I'll have to back up through your thread to see whats going on in there.

I did that on mine. It's worth the stretch, but unless you want to run degree shims, you have too be careful how long your shackles are, and build some height out of your spring hangers in the front. It will probably lift the front near a couple inches when you do the reversal. Good luck!
