    Poison Spyder?

    Cage, fenders, corners is my guess. Am I right?

    So, Jim told me that he would be starting JK today and wanted me to bring the truck to pick up the "PARTS". I showed up at the shop around noon and here's what I found laying on the floor when I walked in.

    instructions "The secrets" of removal.

    After the transfer case was removed Jim started on cutting off the front shock mounts and coil mounts.

    After the mounts had been removed, here's a shot of the frame after the mounts had been torched off. I've gotta say, that he did it with surgical precision.

    Oh that little black jeep. That has changed too over the last year:

    - 8.8 Rear Axle with Disc with ARB
    - HP Dana 30 from 1999 XJ with ARB
    - AW4 Automatic Transmission
    - JB Conversions MegaShort SYE
    - 35x12.5x15 MTR's
    - Genright Comp Ext Gas Tank
    - Genright Rear Tire Carrier (Not Installed yet)
    - Genright Front Fenders (Not Installed yet)
    - Advanced Adaptors Cable Shifters
    - JKS Front and Rear Track Bars
    - JKS Quick Disconnects
    - Zone 4" lift kit
    - 1.25 Body lift

    Did all the work on that one myself, with the exception of installing the gears.

    I'll take a updated picture and upload it tomorrow.

    So, after work today dropped by the RockSpyder4x4 shop and the RockSliders, Front and Rear Bumper where back from the powder coaters. The only problem was Jim had them all wrapped up and put away.

    But, I did manage to un-wrap one of my new steering knuckles and snap a quick picture.

    So,

    A quick little update, all the brackets have been removed and ground clean on the jeep. The Dana 60 was build to start mocking up into place, and the Steering and Transmission cooler has been installed.

    So, It would appear that the boys at RockSypder had a busy day yesterday test fitting the front axle and link arms.

    In this picture, the axle is at full compression on both sides.

    Here we can see the driver side at full drop. Everything is only tack welded at this point.

    And the driver side at full compression. We have a wee issue with the driver side, and are going to need to wait until the tires and rim's arrive to check clearances.

    Bling? The only bling is the Dana 60 hubs. I had to change hubs in order to retain the ABS. I purchased the the Dana 60, ORI's , Brackets, Link Arms last year. And the bling really doesn't start until we open the other boxes

    So, I have been working too many hours to drop by the RockSpyder4x4 shop. They have been mocking up the rear 15 Bolt, and I have stolen some pictures from their facebook page to post up here.
