Now that the Jeep upgrade fund has been replenished (Tax returns) I am thinking the next upgrade should be selectable lockers front and rear with a regear.
How hard is regearing? If you get a shop to do it, what is a decent price?

I paid $1,200 for all the parts and labor, supplied the lockers though.  Maybe someone here will do it for less....

By some miracle of all miracles, my fuel cell does not leak from the pump, sender, or filler. I thought o would have a few leaks since the stock tank had a steel ring for the gaskets to seat against. This little project has cost way more that I intended.




And I picked up some 40s.....for my RC Crawler

I hope you dont regret cutting the back of the cab out. I wish the PO of mine would have left it alone....especially when it starts to rain.

Sound like you have a plan. Ill be raptor lining mine as soon as I finish up the bed mods. I cover the cap and bed with tarps when its parked, but I sure wish I had a solution for driving in the rain/snow. I might look into some canvas with plastic windows sewn in, we used to do a lot of boats at the upholstery shop I worked at.

Re-did all my auxiliary wiring under the hood in my old add on fuse panel to an enclosed unit that hold fuses and relays and got both 12v compressors.  I did plumb them through a distribution block that also feeds the tank, if in the future I do away with the tank it's just pulling the hose and plugging the port on the block.

We wheeled, SOS, Sledgehammer, Sun Bonnet and a bunch of others,  three a day. Then hit Turkey Claw every night.
You kids should really consider making a trip there.  Closer than Moab, and free camping.
