Swapped in a new transfer case last week after I blew mine up. Changed the oil today. 324000 miles and running strong! Rocker panels coming soon.
Thanks! I did mine in plastidip because I wasn't sure how I was going to like it. It came out pretty good though and I think I am going to leave it this way. Now I just have to figure out where I want my final ride height and do my bump stops. Currently sitting at 1.5" and 33's.S8NNG8 said:Nice rig bud! I guess this 2tone idea I had is spreading like wildfire. I should be done it when I thought of it.
I had to do a lot of trimming and test fitting to make them work. On flat ground they have no rubbing lock to lock. Off camber they are good if I don't have to turn the wheel too far. If I do they hit the inter fender though. My clearance issues are now with the inner fenders, not with trimming the outside. If I want to make it more usable, I'll have to raise it another inch or so. For now this is my DD though so it doesn't matter too much. It still bombs down back roads and turns around in the parking lot just fine with this combination.S8NNG8 said:I guess it seems stupid that I'm concerned about going to 32's at 3"f/3.5"r
Same tires I had on my wrangler and now have on my Cherokee. Great tires. No complaints so far!DirtyJeepGuy said:In the next day or so I'll probably do the 200 mile one way trip for these. 33x12.50 duratracs on some brass knuckle beadlocks. To replace my boggers and biohazard beadlocks.
Lund visor? You mean the rain guards? They were on my Jeep when I got it. Jeep came from Florida so I assume the previous owner just wanted to be able to leave the windows open in the Florida heat.newtomezj said:Where'd you find that Lund visor? I found one off of a Ranger and I'm trying to make it fit but I'm not sure how yet.
Make your own from some 3/8 flat stock. Cheaper and it can't spin on you.Put on the HD offroad no lift shackle relocation. Definitely helped ride and (based on taking it off the stands) even droop a little while still running stock shackles.
The installs a pain in the *** and the very last one of the JCR nut strip nuts I straightened down didn't hold and spun. I'll update the build thread at some point with them. So now the exhaust heat shield and hangar aren't on properly and I can't just take it off and send it back because it's holding up my shackles. Lovely.
The reason you use a thicker piece of flat stock is so that you can just drill and tap it. I did it specifically because I don't have a welder.bluejunior said:Can't weld a nut to it. I did it before with flat chunks of plate and just ran it up with an impact, which worked fine, but I don't have access to an impact now...
