Some old updates:

I made some skids for my lower control arm brackets. Anyone with a sawzall and a welder NEEDS to do this. Easy to do and well worth it, no need to buy the skids from Currie/jks when you can easily make them yourself.

Front axle:

Frame side lowers:

The pitman shaft on my steering box was bent over. While I have known of this issue since I finished fixing it, I never did anything about it until a few weeks ago. Took it apart afterwards, and holy crap! The shaft was splintered! had a big crack going halfway around it! I've been wheeling this thing too! Really says something about the strength of the stock steering box.

Not that you can really tell from the picture, but here is what it looks like:

After replacing the steering box with another stock one from a parts Jeep at the shop, I finally got around to mounting my steering box skid.

Heading to the beach tomorrow with a couple friends and taking the Jeep. Spent all day cleaning the Jeep inside and out after several dusty URE runs (anyone who has ever been to URE on a dry day knows what kind of dust Im talking about ).

When I get back I will be revealing the major impulse buy I made for the Jeep last week. Its gonna blow your socks off!

Yep. Well, technically I am staying at my aunt's beach house in Sunset Beach, but will be spending most of the time in Myrtle.

You should try Carolina Backwoods ORV Park if you haven't already. I've heard good things about it, planning to go eventually.

Well, I got back from the beach yesterday, and today I set about working on the Jeep to get it ready for the Rough Country Friends and Family rid in Kentucky this weekend. Didn't get around to the mod I promised, but should be able to reveal it tomorrow!

What i did get accomplished today was finally hooking up my rubi lockers!!! I was able to relocate the locker pumps to under the hood, re-using the stock bracket at the same time, and wire up each locker individually!

Anybody who has a rubicon and MetalCloak fenders and wants to relocate their pumps, this is definitely the easiest way to do it. Most people have to make new brackets and drill a bunch of holes. I simply bolted mine to the fender. I can a write-up about it if anyone is interested.

I wanted to use safety toggles, but I couldn't find any local, so I just used these. I wired them up so they light up when the switch is turned on, alerting me that the axle is locked.

Well, everything went smoothly wiring it all up, expect for one thing: one of the lockers pumps is bad. : Not the end of the world, but now I have to order a new pump, and I wont have both lockers for when I go to Kentucky. At least I will have the front locker and the rear lsd.

My new locker pump came in before I left this morning, so I am now locked front and rear!
