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 just talked to Steven at Phoenix Rack & Axle. I am going to bring my driveshaft down this afternoon to get it balanced and have new spicer joints installed. Thanks for the tip!

I think it's the angle I took the picture, the pinion and output from the t-case are still parallel, and the angles aren't too sharp for the shaft that was one of the things I had them check at the shop when I took it down.

and here's a shot just for you I rewired the winch with the same heavy duty connectors and hard wire to the battery as my jumper cable so I only have to have one set of wires running to the battery

the wire tie around the winch ready to travel

the wire connected and ready to use

and one of the connector

hope thats good enough jeep porn for now, I haven't done anything else yet.

no divorce, he said he needed to clear up space in the garage. I think he took out all the tools he wanted and put them in his smaller box. there are some holes in the inventory that someone would normally have in a box like this, but I don't really care I priced it out with my tool rep. from the company and that box went for around 8,000.00 new and I already had all the tools.

I'm not sure they were in when I got it but they do light up the night really well.

had a little problem with the head lights last night, it turned out to be a ground that had come off all together.

Today I was able to find the hitch receivers I wanted, they had them at H.F.
got them welded in.

that was all I got done today

Despite the short brake lines and from the look of the fluids and axle pics, I'd say your jeep had a decent PO, unlike some of us. Looking forward to your bumper fab.
