The third brake light bulb I bought from superbrightleds.com and the stock socket accepts either 194 or 921 size bulbs, which are pretty common. Here's a link to it: http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...se-tower/1563/ and it seems like it improved the reaction time of other drivers behind me. It's pretty bright and disperses light well since the stock housing for the third brake light is small plus you don't have to mess with or change the flasher since it's not on the flasher circuit. Make sure you buy it it in RED to match the color of the reflector though. You may find it cheaper on ebay as I only bought mine from superbrightleds since I had good luck with them in the past.

The 2357 bulbs for the two tail lights are just standard bulbs you can buy at even walmart and they are a bit better than stock. I do have projector LED bulbs as backup lights in the stock housing which work great but took some minor modification to work properly so it was about the same price as buying off-the-shelf backup lights from walmart.

Ordered new R&P and install kit for 8.8. Also ordered new extended front brake lines.

Got the inner and out pinion races pressed on my HP30. I figured out I needed 0.098" of spacers which entails:
0.031 Slinger
0.021 Baffle
0.046 shims
So I said screw it and put it in. You only live once (plus I have another baffle )

Almost have the design for my tube fenders finalized. But starting to change my mind again. : thinking less of an angle across the front (currently 45*, thinking 60*) and trying to decide what angle to put at the bottom of the flare. But I've atleast decided on this style vs. my other design.

Finally got rid of the last of the vibes, and decided to put my front shaft back in for wheeling this weekend. I had the axle end wrapped up in a trash bag so the caps wouldn't get nasty. I did have the bearing caps wrapped with tape so they wouldn't fall off. It started pouring, and I already had a bolt started in the cv end. Wasn't paying attention, and this happened.



Im usually smarter then that, but in my defense the rain was cold. Scraped what I could off. Now I smell like a plastic recycling center going down the road.

Finally! I just picked my jeep up from the shop where I had 4.88's installed with Detroit truetracs front and rear and Yukon shafts in back. This was the final modification needed to finish what I consider to be phase one. Now the jeep is a capable all around wheeler and still a great daily driver. Some day when the jeep is replaced as a daily driver it may morph again into something wilder, but I am ready to rock and roll now. I can't wait to go wheeling with the new gearing and LSD's, but already on the street I am so happy I went with 4.88's. I got my OD back! I don't understand those who will upgrade thier stereos and buy expensive light bars, bumpers and other do-dads but wont' put the money in for a re-gear. I understand I can take awhile to save up the cash, it took me awhile, but it is so worth it!
