Haven't been on the Jeep much. Got a lot of other projects going, and work keeps me on the road a lot. But, I did decide on an eLocker in front and an ARB in the rear (going to stick with the LP30 for now). Got the eLocker in yesterday, the rear will have to wait while I put some funding into other things. The install went pretty smooth for the most part. But, if I ever go into the front axle again... it is coming out from under the Jeep! Trying to put the diff in place and use a case spreader while laying on my side under the Jeep is not worth it.
I was a tad aggravated with the fact that the D30 eLocker uses a non standard bearing, which is not included with the locker. At least ARB has the decency to supply the bearing since they are not standard parts.
I settled on the eLocker for the front due to the fact that the collar type engagement on the D30 units is reportedly very strong and reliable. The pin style used in the D44 does not seem to be as such, therefor I will be using an ARB in the rear.
Other than that the only mods have been rearranging the front fenders with a rock face at Coal Creek, flattening my RR shock into a "D" shape, and folding the tailpipe around the rear axle tube.
I'm not going to spend money replacing the shocks in their current configuration. After this trip I will install Currie rear spring with corrected factory upper spring buckets, and outboarded 12" Fox shocks. At the same time I may or may not re-engineer the rear arms and link mounts.
Also decided on the Corbeau Baja JP seats, I'll get them eventually.
The longer I spend doing things other than working on the Jeep, the longer my wishlist of parts gets...

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
