Ok, as far as pay back on the rock throwing, believe me, I have had my ideas. LOL One was possibly a bottle with a rag in it dropped from above. LOL

Anyway, today I took some before pics. Excited to say that tomorrow we start the lift process. :D







Hopefully tomorrow night or Sunday I will be able to share some after pics. :D

Ok guys, here is the after. :D









I was pleasantly surprised about the ride. I was worried it would be stiff because of the heavy duty springs, but it was a really nice ride. Better then with the stock springs. :D

I had a leaky axle seal in my 8.8 that I've been putting up with for a couple years. Finally replaced it today. It went really smooth until my spider gears fell out, and I was dumb trying to put them back in before getting the c-clip back in. Would've been a 15 minute job without c-clips. Instead took over 2 hours. But hopefully no more leaky axle tube.

I wish I had spent the $360 for a powertrax no-slip to put in there while I had it open. Limited slip will have to do for a while longer.

Next week I'm going to replace the heater hose I used for fuel filter and vent, with the right parts.

Moving closer towards the finish.
Ride height is 4 inches lower when it's in 42's.

I finally gave up trying to stop the oil leaks in my Warn full-floater kit. I installed those very rare offset D44 flanged axles Sean gave me. Thank you Sean! I'm sure I will enjoy 2/3's less spline slop crawling through the Rubicon. I had to loose my rear disk brakes for now. Installed an adjustable proportioning valve to ease off rear bias. Works great.
Oh, no more K&N either. WIX filters now.  :thumbsup:

Thursday night after work I got a powertrax no-slip installed in my 8.8. I can't wait to test it out.
