LOL... OK. Life has a way of interfering. Medical issue, kids, work and then simply being able to find a housing. Kong located this one for me which was way cool.

Finally got the Jeep over to Blaine's and a new HP30 is in the works. As a refresher, after 10 years including some rather intense abuse, the old HP30 axle was slightly tweaked and I could not take the bump steer from the crossover steering any longer so I am reverting to a new housing, and stock type configuration using Currie/Savvy steering kit, Currie trackbar and all new PSC stuff to drive the ram.

You Metalcloak nutswingers should have a nice time with these pix..... Currie trackbar with a standard Currie bumpstop kit and 5.5" up and 5.5" downtravel

There are a couple of other little surprises in there too for the sharp eyed among us.

You're waiting on drama that won't happen because it doesn't exist.

"Hate" is a strong term for something as good as that track bar.
