well what I plan to do was as time and money allowed I would pull a component, strip it, rebuild it, upgrade it, clean paint and reinstall it.

This that I'm doing now I don't think I would call a build but more catching up on several years of PO neglect and/or negligence.

either way I'm having a blast, I took the jeep out last night for some night fishing and urban assault 4wheeling.

I used to do buesisness with a company called dicks dirve lines but that just sold to phoenix rack and axle stll have the same employees and service.

the new unit is actually pretty beefy compaired to the old one even the yokes are thicker and the solid portion of the shaft is about 1/2 inch thicker. The turn around was only a day and I told them I wasn't in a hurry. The entire unit was only $210.00 and that inclueded new u-joints. overall I'm pretty happy here's there #(602) 252-8255 they also do allot of high performance stuff as well as steering.

hope that helps

I did get it on the freeway and up to speed, there was a very noticeable lack of vibration from the new shaft

Yes they did, they also spin balance and weld on weights in the appropriate places.

todays update

I've been thinking about the bumpers, so today I went into my steel pile and pulled out the frame from an old project and started cutting.

the old frame
img00041-20101202-1444.jpg

sorry about the picks there from my phone and I can't seem to get them to load correctly. The first one is the old frame, the second and third are of the way I cut the old brackets off, the forth is the angles I cut the ends for the front bumper and the fifth is both of them.
I going to weld the square tube on then use plat to weld on angles and planes, but I have to wait on mail order for the spindle and hitch receptacles so I'll go back to finishing all the maintenance for now.

yeah thanks to the the dry heat of AZ that surface rust there actually took 5 years to build up and will come off in seconds when I get to it.

thats the only good thing about the heat here.

You're really making some great progress there! The idea of taking one component at a time to do is good too. You'll be able to drive it while I'm still working on mine.

Looking forward to seeing those bumpers too.
