i got plates renewed on it today, and my favorite FedEx guy dropped off 63 lbs of Currie rear triangulated 4 link parts.
its decision making time now: weld some brackets on the D35 and use it for a while (even though I doubt it'll be very advantagous without a locker), or wait until I find a front 3/4-1ton axle and do an semi-expensive build...

Thanks, that XP is my buddies, I was on a 3 seat Yamaha as the camera man mostly. And we were on the Assateague Shoals. This was Tuesday and I guess that storm up east was kicking up some big swells because they were huge at high tide.

I'll have to check out the Indian River, never been up there on a jet ski.

Does that mean you're moving to Cherokee tech soon?

Let the rain get in it. Folded the rear seat down to the cushion wouldn't get wet and rolled up the windows to keep the rain out from the sides.

Got some goodies yesterday:

Advance Adapters 32spline HD rear output:



Tons of brackets from Ruff Stuff as I'm not sure which I'll need/want:



Got my trackbar mounts tacked in place last night:





That passenger side of the axle is getting pretty crowded!

Tonight I was looking more closely at everything and found that my 1.75" diameter tubing would hit the diff housing with nearly no compression so something had to change.

My options were A) raise trackbar mount at the axle or B) find someone/somewhere that could bent my trackbar to clear the diff.

I am going w/ raising the axle mount as it will also give me better angles in relation to my drag link. They will be at about 3 degrees from horizontal at ride height... which is fantastic. Also I'll be able to keep a straight track bar which is stronger anyways.

To extend it I am actually using the piece I cut off from the frame side trackbar mount, I have it welded to the top of the axle mount now and drilled out, need to do a lot of bracing and boxing and actually build the trackbar tomorrow night and re-cycle the suspension w/ it in to check for problems.



I haven't been posting everything in this thread... for all the stuff up to this check out my build thread.

So, how long did it take you to get your LoD's?

As I've mentioned here before, It's been 11 weeks waiting, but I did actually receive the lower part of the rear tire carrier yesterday, but not the upper portion of the front bumper.

I look forward to seeing your pics.

It took almost 8 weeks, but I did not have it powdercoated. Instead i requested it be sent to me bare metal in order to paint it myself. The finish isnt quite as nice, but I can touch it up easier. I will edit this post to add pictures tonight.

hydrolocked and seized my motor driving through a puddle in tampa, how it happened is a mystery because i have been through much deeper water offroading. Looks like its time for a stroker.

Finally quit just talking on the phone to Jeff and Dave at Rokmen and ordered my first mod parts. Engine skid, belly skid, gas tank skid, mm lift, body lift, and some adjustable lower control arms will be on their way to me soon. =)
