As always Detroit front and ARB rear.

This week we should be getting a bunch done. The steering box will need to go to PSC to be ported for the hydro assist so that will take a week to get done. A custom Currie tie rod also needs to be made to clear the diff. Once we get the axles in then I'll get Tom Wood to make the 1350 driveshafts.

Thanks!

Great build you have planned...I'll enjoy following along.

Can I ask, how loyal are you to Tom Woods? I have seen several driveshafts come through our shop for rebuild shortly after being installed. Seems like the once dependable quality is starting to waiver...

Tom Or JE Reel are the guys we use. I've only had a couple of bad joints on Tom's stuff in the last few years so I'm not concerned. The one that I did see was like that a new shaft that took a dump but Tom has always been cool about fixing them.

Front axle was slung under. The Currie F9 fabricated 9" housing and 4" lift kit.

The steering box was removed and sent to PSC Motorsports to be ported for hydro assist.

As a former TJ owner, I'm very excited to see Savvy cross over to the JK world. Now what to do with all this AEV stuff?

Throw it in the trash where it belongs

Edit: it was a joke. For the AEV fanboys that can't take one, I apologize

What's your take on the suspension after completing the install? This is the exact suspension I will be converting to.

It's a phenomenal suspension. I too will be running a form of it.

Nevermind...found it.

I do like the textured look, more so than the ARB cover. Keep up the good work.

Just curious Gerald...

Why shell out the $$$ for the Rubicon package and trim like colored-matched flares when you know you'll be pulling it all off anyway?
