    Check in with Josh at IRO and see. I dont see why not. The adjustability of the pinion is really easy with this. And it makes a TON of difference on the road.

    With the 5.5" lift and short arm it the jeep felt top heavy and had a ton of body roll. Once I installed these it feels much more centered and lower cog.

    Also just picked up some bils for the front.

    So far the D30 is doing well. I havent put much time off road on it yet. I have been piecing the jeep since my daughter was born in July 09. Now that the LA is on the rear I will be heading down to HH in the near future to put it through some paces.

    Nice, Yeah two isnt twice as hard as one, its about 10 times harder. My son is 2yr 9mo and daughter is 9mo. She is just on the edge of being mobile and the fun starts. My son will do his first wheeling trip with me in the next month. I am stoked to get him on the trail.

    Looks good. I think I actually saw your jeep over at Comberson's in Campbell a couple days ago as I was driving by. I'll be hitting Hollister next Sunday with a couple people if you want to come and test out your rig then.

    Morning Fred, yup its back at the shop to repair the upper a-arm mount, re-attach the sliders, and potentially look at fabbing a new Trac-Bar Bracket on the frame to correct the angle I created by flipping the DL. Ill throw up some pics once I have her back.

    Hmm, that is tempting, I would like to hit it with a group. Ill check in with the Boss and see our schedule. Should I PM you?

    Picked her back up last night. Still have some minor things to go over. But here she is up on the rack.



    Here is the mount for the upper link.



    Here you can see the new flowmaster muffler. Sounds mean outside but not that noticeable in the cab even at fwy speeds.

    Also check out the inside of the upper link.

    It has the factory bushings so you might be able to work the into the factory location. Though I think it's wider.

    Here are a few more pix from my iphone, I need to get the pix from my buddy.



    Where we put the hole for the filler tubes





    I ended up trimming the filler tube up a few inches to assist in alleviating the sever angle but left the breather tube.



    And my brother came into town and brought my son his bday gift for his 3rd bday. He works for the forest service up in south shore of Tahoe and is a sawyer. So how fitting to get my son home depot faux chain saw. makes sound and the saw blade moves back and forth.

    Nice.. getting that dirty diaper a raise. Have you finished yet? I want to see how you seal everything up. Ive seen some people cut about 4" off the sides where its flat, not to where it gets to the curve. Hopefully the newb questions dont bother you, I need as much info as possible so I can go do it someday.

    Nice jeep btw

    I left part of the curve in mine since it will keep some strength and rigidity in the panel. Not that it matters now I guess LOL.

    Nice jeep btw
    So for some bling I got some diamond plate to cover the hole. I only cut out the tire carrier at the curve for the same reason as JT01. I am 95% done. I just need to get some dynamat to cover the bottom and deaden some of the sound and I figure it will assist in sealing the gap. I plan on finishing up this weekend and will toss some more pix up at that point.

    Yeah, I like it. I went with 2/16th and looking back I should have gone with 1/4" for more sturdy. I went with 33"x35" and it works but it is a tad shy after trimming, so if I were to do it I would go with 35"x35".

    just out of curiosity why did you dime out for diamond plate just to cover it with carpet? why not a cheaper metal? you said "bling" but you covered your bling!
    96 ZJ swapped in 5.2, 242, 14bolt rear, big ugly home brew bumper, 7.5" of lift in the front 9" in the rear, long arms, hummer wheels with 37s... (dont worry front axle is next)

    It should be heavy. Weight is a sign of reliability. If it doesn't work, you can always hit him with it.
