JEEP HISTORY
I bought Jeep used in 2006 with 29,012
miles on it. It already had the 2" BB
and JKS Quicker disco's on it and 31x10.50
Winston Winner AT's but I put everything
else on it with the help of my dad (he has
WAY more tools than i do). I took it
wheeling the day after I got it and it
really surprised me. Whenever I get a few
extra dollars I put it into my Jeep. I've
put a Tuffy overhead security console, a
Cobra CB, RRC rear hitch bumper, Tough
Stuff hood rack and light kit, Fabtech
rocker guards and front bumper, and a
Super 35 with an OX locker with 4.56 gears
in it. Since I put the locker in it
I've really noticed a big difference off
road. I've taken it over the Rubicon 3
times and had a blast each time. I plan on
some lower gears and a front OX for my D30
for the not-too-distant future.

Dude.. I'm so sorry. I never recall seeing any kind of message saying you posted here in my JF profile..

here's the link: http://s181.photobucket.com/albums /x29/mywhtjp/lucy/V8/ She's all fixed now.. BUT.. it took this POS shop 70 days to fix her.. but they took a year to do.. AND.. they're wanting $16, 295.00 for labor. So I've hired an attorney and am taking them to court.

Hope all is well with you..

Yup.. but motor is all stock.. which has some miles on it and a few left in it. I also added an Atlas II transfer case, 700R4 transmission, 4.88's, detroitARB.

hey man, just curious how the D60's are comin' along. are you planning on 38" tires to match those giant diffs?
=========

hey there.. the D60's are in.. just doing alot of other stuff.. I'm going to go pick up my 16" rims Saturday and then go get my 35 BFG MT's mounted on them.

I am so looking forward to driving her again..

here's the pictures of the project: http://s181.photobucket.com/albums /x29/mywhtjp/lucy/V8/

This is some of what the mechanic is working on:

Did he have an excuse for using a puller fan in front of the radiator? We fired it today and it blows air forward....not going to work....also, engine smokes like a freight train, like fill the yard with oil smoke if you touch the gas while idling. R Rear axle is too long, causing the ARB to bind and not roll. R&P is set up wrong, over .020 backlash !Supposed to have .008-.012...Power steering hose fitting is wrong, it leaks like a faucet when idling. Main power feed wire to ECM broke at solder joint when we installed pcm. Does he have the steering shaft and support bearing? How about the specs on the front axle, need to know to order axles, 35 spline? Length? I know the outers are Yukon. Did he set up front gears? How about shock spec sheet? Info on Front knuckles, Deadenbair? Ford or GM caliper brackets? year? Did you get reciepts of all the parts? We will need wheels and tires to set ride height properly and you will need taller rear springs to level it if you want more than 2" up travel. I am ballparking up travel at 4", thats 3" less than my tj , 2" less than stock ....I am going to get some 2 1/2" muffler tubing(its cheap) to make spacers to imitate coil springs for static ride height and figure out how much up travel it will have. This is very important if you want to drive it on the street, which you mentioned. I will go over what we have done in the next day or so.

one other quick question sorry to bother you when you had 3.73s did the mpg drop terrible. i have 31s now with the d44 3.73 i just dont have the dough to regear right now but i want to do it right. either go with 31s or 33s? the 31s turn like butter so i fgured 33s would be ok, thanks again

Thank you for the advice Jeepster. I have never been sure of where to find my gear ratio and didn't realize I had two different ratios listed. I'll make sure I check and write the correct ratio down.
