Driver rear wheel has been leaking since I did the c clip eliminator kit, finally pulled the axle shaft. Getting the outer race out of the axle was a bitch but hopefully it doesnt leak anymore.

What are the dates of the wedding?We typically have it in the middle of July. Next next year that would be like the 16th through the 19th. But we sometimes move it around, because of who else might be up there. :pissed:

Looks like you may need a hood latch repair also.

By the way, I changed your profile location for you.

What I didn't do to my Jeep today:
Those Explorer springs won't work on the front. The center pin offset is around 25"/30" which the 25 is still too long for my frame. They would work in the rear though. I will look into Durango, S10 and Trooper springpacks at 22/32, 21/27 and 21/26. Not sure of the rate and lift on them. Kind of limited with my 81" WB.
I set my air-down gadgets down to 7psi - done. Go slow everywhere but anywhere.  :hahaha:

Finally got to put the jeep on the lift and start some work! Front stiffeners mostly done. Need to install front locker. And starting the diy db bumper.

Had me a little helper in the shop today and he wanted to watch me weld so I gave him a helmet and he just stood there watching lol
