    It's been talked about Ted time research and budget will determine the eventual swap.

    Thanks Dave I'm very excited to be back and building again.

    Had a bit of a productive day today. I spoke with Greg at Frobot and he's gonna get me a back half kit for the rear since I'm doing the stretch when I install the 8.8 I've decided to just coil over it at the same time.

    I did snatch up an 8.8 with 4.56 gears and a locker today for a great deal along with a track bar and 7075 tie rod

    I'm hoping to stay somewhat steady on progress or atleast on getting the parts needed so I can work on this thing when time allows

    Will do man. I've been talking with Greg daily about the rear back half and coil over setup. Hoping to have that knocked out in the next 6 months or so pending funds and time. Front long arms, track bar, 7075 steering and brake lines will be installed in sept hopefully

    Well the first round of Tj upgrades is complete. Added an ironman4x4fab track bar / bracket and 7075 aluminum tie rod.


    The bracket is a pre production piece and will be nicely welded by ironman with their great welders. Mine sucks but gets the job done. If you're looking for a super strong track bar and bracket look no further.

    No shocker here but I sold the TJ last year to fund home remodeling so we could move to Utah. We are here now in SLC and I just bought a 98 5.9
