so a quick update. haven't really posted anything up in a bit.
had some time off work being home. got some stuff done although i didn't really get much done considering how much time i had off. and no pics just cause.
finally got around to my 4.10 diffs. installed them in the jeep, the rear with an Aussie locker in it. install went clean. installed all new rear brakes (still drums. i'm lazy) replaced all the hardlines i could see. new seals, bearings etc.
up front I rerouted my front lines so i dont' rip em off. new brakes up front too.
new hubs, and ujoints up as well.
installed my BDS shackles with new poly framebushings and greaseable bolts (which i actually don't like lol)
new ujoints in all driveshafts
'new' transfer case after grenading my old one. this is a post 96" XJ unit so it has the slip outside of the tcase which is nice; it won't leak fluid if i pull DS.
all new fluids in everything
new steering box cause mine was crap. new dropped pitman arm put in at the same time.
finally wired up a CB with a new whip and even bought an SWR meter so i can dial it in and use it.
running pretty good now. next projects are new seats (Sunfire or Cavalier) poison spyder cage and maybe some sort of steering setup over the knuckle.
have also been considering building a bit of a truss on the rear turdy-5 to help with flex and stuff. just a homebrew thing. so far i have like, 150$ into this 4.10 locked diff, so thats not bad costwise. i figure i have 3 diffs worth of spare parts before i upgrade it.
