No it's the one from when Sean killed that poor innocent bastard that stole a cab and tried to kill him.

Ya, that was a rough night. I was doing 26mph the other was doing 87mph when it ran into me. I actually got lucky that I didn't get hurt.

This is actually today and yesterday.

Yesterday I put an extra back up light on.



Today I took off my mirrors, sandblasted the stocks, and repainted them. :D



I also installed my windjammer today. I'm officially ready for the cool mornings and warmer days. Window zips open and closed so you have the best of both worlds. :D

Pulled the front axle today, i really regret not paining the caliper and caliper brackets when i did the wj knuckle swap. The passenger side was a pain to get off and it looks like i need to replace it now.

Not today but last weekend, we finally finished making the kayak rack! Now I can go kayaking. :D



Even made it to swivel for easy loading.






From here you just pick up the front of the kayak and walk it around to the front of the Jeep. :D Easier then trying to pick the whole thing up at once. :D

So many may have read in the trip report, Moab was my trip to have things break. Camp repairs and trail repairs but I made it. Today, Tim and I finished up all the repairs. Cooling fan issues, new T-case adapter from Advance Adapter with a new 10spline sector collar and a new set of rear springs from Michigan Springs. Now Iím ready to pack and go to the Con on Wed.

I got the gears installed, gonna run it for a few hundred miles and recheck since I gotta change the fluid for the locker anyway. Chromoly axle shafts and new unit bearings since the passenger one blew apart separating it from the old outer. Still need to wire the compressor and change out a rear axle seal from the c clip eliminator. Then illt be ready for a day trip to Hollister or prairie city to test it.

Well, not my Jeep,  but for a Jeepster . Will weld it up Monday,  set gears up when ring gear gets back from being turned down.

That's cool, looks like you took off quite a bit. How much does the ring gear need to get turned down?

It depends on where you want to end up.
05 and newer front has 1500 u joints and 35 spline outer with unit bearings.
Rear axle is a 10.25 but that's not bad
Both of those should be 8 on 6.5 lug pattern.

I was under the impression the housings on the 10.25 and 10.5 are the same and I can put the internals from a 10.5 into it. Itll need the upgraded pinion at the very least. Main thing right now is figuring out what tcase to run in the tacoma. I dont know if the chain drive case will hold up. Theres not much aftermarket support for it.

That's correct on the 10.5/10.25.
That shot of the rear shaved 10.5 is on this rig, he is ordering an atlas as he has already broke 1 case. I'm not to sharp on the Toyota stuff.

4 speed or 2? When he installs it if you can get some pics I'd appreciate it, wondering how low it has to be clocked or how much of the seat rails will have to be modified.
