I didnt get the harness yet, Im ordering it today. I should have just spent the damn money and bought a Rubi to start with!! Ive practically built one now since the only thing different are painted fenders and electric sway bar disconnect. Well and I guess the NP241 4:1 rock gear. Guess I'll be getting that next.

I did order the 6" springs like you and Dave have with your kits. With my 1" BL that should put me in your ballpark. Guess I'll keep the mid arm Full Traction lift for now. Im going to need to save and buy driveshafts!

Nice Rooster. I dropped your brake lines in the mail today. Should be there in a day or two. Keep us posted on how your install goes - I'll be doing about the same thing at some point.

Edit: there will be no resell ...nope. Im riding this thing into the ground or it'll be my son's first vehicle one day.

That's the spirit. I already told my 4 year old that he is getting my Jeep when he can drive and now he tells everyone that it is his Jeep!

Jeeps, watches and guns. Just taking care of them for the next generation!

Yes I know. I wanted 60's but considering these Mopar axles are a little over 3 grand and I got them out the door new in a crate for 2 I think I stepped in $hit and come out smelling like a rose. You have to admit 2 grand for new sticks are a pretty dang good deal. If I break'em I'll go 60's. Or if my wife finally leaves me! lol. Until then Im happy I atleast got these 44's. My ultimate goal is to build one similar to the Off Road Evolution Jeep. I may go Rock Krawler though instead of EVO's set up. I want coilovers though. Babysteps...

I bought some Procomp MT Mudders and another set of Procomp wheels too. Im taking off my current set of wheels/tires for River Rock so I dont damage them. Im not sure if Im going to keep them though cause I really want some 15" KM2's and cragar soft 8's for krawling. I couldnt pass it up though, too good of a deal. Yes Im broke now...Do they have a broke smiley?

I havent decided what to do yet. I only bought the ProComps to take to River Rock and local trails so I didnt beat up the Toyo's and Procomps Ive already got. My issue is the new Procomps are 17's and my Toyo's are 18's. I love the rims (Procomps) Ive got right now. The new procomps I bought not as much. If I sell your first on the list.

Very nice. You have myshipping address. Just fwd them on to me. Charitable donation. You can write it off on your taxes.

Speaking of which. We were discussing last night at our Jeep club meeting about joining the Polk County Emergency Response volunteer unit w/ our jeeps. Someone mentioned that we could write off mods on our jeeps. "I needed a winch in case I had to get way out in the woods."

Im wondering.....Gonna talk to my accountant about it.

Seems legit. I would think that you could write off equipment used in the benifit of others.

AND ITS DONE!!! First off let me just cut right to it. The Riddler covers are the ****! NO BS. I primed them and then painted them semi gloss black. Then I sanded the raised portion of the Riddler logo then shot the whole thing with clear. I also upgraded the bolts to stainless so they wouldnt rust.

It was alot of work but the D44's front and rear are in. I had to go back with the springs I already had because the others didnt come in. Im also waiting on the Rubicon wiring harness. So affectively the rubi axles with lockers and 5:13 gears are in but I wont be able to use the lockers until the wiring harness comes in. They should work as limited slips though.

First impression of the gears...Seems like more pep but Im not sure I notice that much difference. I know going from a 4:10 to 5:13 with 35's should make things better but not like I expected. At least not yet. I'll know more after driving this weekend.

Special thanks to my friends Greg Rice (Milgre) and Mike Cambron and their wives for letting us ge this done before Jeepoberfest!!!
