This is awesome. You got a hell of a jeep for the price. I’m excited to see it again at wf.

1st thing is do if I were you is weld those drop bracket. At the time, I didn’t know how to weld and just ran bolts and they were always getting loose.

X2. I have no where near enough cash of hand at the moment and I was close. I even contacted him and tried to trade the TJ straight up for it

The snow just keeps coming!
I bet I've shoveled 10 inches so far.

Won't be telling the wife that though...

Re: Important

LOL
The town where I grew up had a subdivision called Palos Pines.
One of my buddies lived near the entrance and repeatedly switched the i and the e, until they put up a painted sign.

Not much visible change, but oh what a difference in drivability. Loving my 4:56 gears.

Big thanks to MacGyver and Grace for the garage time, beers and a place to sleep off beers. Hope I didn't leave too much of a mess.

Thanks also to Seth Barrand for setting up the gears and putting up with my drunk azz.

Drinks on me next time.

Re: Important

Did he get you the gear sets or you just pay him to set them up? I’d consider this just to save some time

I bought gear sets from http://rwkhaussupply.com/ and paid him to set em up. He works for the dana factory and knows his chit. He does the work at Magyvers. I have about 1k in the entire job and I know it was done right. Win Win in my opinion.

To be more specific, this is the set I ordered: http://rwkhaussupply.com/usa-standar...e-special.html It had everything needed, other than the gear for the transfer to make the speedo correct.
