PottsyCJ5 Accident repairs continue...onto my crushed driver side fender. Pulled it off the Jeep today to bring to the paint shop to try and find what color my blue is (PO had it painted and was supposed to mail me documentation on all the work done to it but he ghosted needs after sale). Hoping I can find a paint code that looks close to whatís on there so I can get the new fender painted before I install it. Gonna see how this goes, but might end up needing to have the whole jeep painted. I plan on getting her painted down the road but hoping I can get this close enough to hold me over until I can resolve some other issues Iíve got.

schardein Progress as of today- front D44 was pulled, removed Detroit Locker, installed new inner seals, installed Ox locker (w/ same 4.56 gears), installed new high strength alloy axle shafts with new Spicer u-joints & full circle snap rings, repainted axle housing, repacked wheel bearings, new hub grease seals, new spindle seals, thrust washer & slinger seals, new brake pads, installed axle, & hooked up shop air to test the locker. Worked as expected.

Now to mount the switch and run the air lines. I need to get an inline air regulator to put between the tank and the switch. My system shuts off at 150psi, switch wants to see 80-120psi, with 90 being optimal.

PottsyCJ5 That battery tender setup is sweet.

New rubber transmission mount and torque arm bushings installed. I went with poly for the torque arm but plain old rubber for the main mount. Managed to get it installed by just jacking up the transmission and slipping the new one under without dropping the rear crossmember. I did drop the skid plate for clearance for my jack. Transmission needed jacked up anyway to make clearance for the added thickness of the new rubber mount. It was a lot easier than I expected it to be.

They are simply zip-ties style that are made out of Velcro making them reusable. They were CHEAP so I bought some from eBay.

PLM Got my on board air compressor mounted and hooked up. Use a 1 hp Puma compressor with pressure switch and unloader valve. I will try to post some pics tomorrow.

Thanks. Lots of work just to keep the stock looking fenders. It really doesn't sit that high, for being on 39" tires.

Not really. Just plan,plan,plan. read as much as you can, and do a ton of research. Put some thought into exactly what you want it to be capable of. Driver, trail rig, rock crawler?

One sold on eBay for $750.00!! 8)

I bought one off ebay b/c the leather was a tad bit better than my original, which still has the black handle. I'm likely going to be parting ways with that one.
