    Yes drop pitman arm, steering is a kit from M.O.R.E. (Mountain Off Road Enterprises), no big lift they are 1.5" RE SOA specific springs with reverse eyes and close to stock length boomerang shackles.

    The axle is sitting at full droop in the pics as the only thing holding it in is the springs. On 35's it rubs the fenders flexed out with the springs flat and not inverted. Very tried and true old school simple setup which is what I was looking for on a budget and occasionally street driven Jeep.

    I was pretty impressed with it. I've been around the industry long enough to have seen a lot of scary or questionable setups when it comes to steering. Not to mention ones that require way too much modification to get them to work in my opinion. The thing I liked about the M.O.R.E. setup is everything on the passenger knuckle is double shear and the kit comes with everything you need no guessing or running around to multiple vendors. Minus the Russel stuff I think i'm around the $2000 mark retail. This is my third and hopefully final build on this vehicle.

    So spent yet another Saturday down here at the shop. Got the rear brake lines done and the brakes bled. Also managed to get the front shocks mounted and all the other brackets on the front axle all buttoned up. List is pretty short now just need get my console together and then paint everything up and it should be good to go for a test ride.

    Well guess I should update this. Drove it home from the shop two weeks ago and it was uneventful. She actually drives very smooth for a 95 YJ. No drive line vibes or steering issues. There were however extensive leaks coming from the tranny tcase combo. I figured this might happen as I left the combo sitting for too many years. Plan is to bring it back down to the shop this Sunday with @Dobzy to pull the tranny and tcase and re-seal the entire combo. Also while doing this i will relocate the vent since on the TF999 it's in the bell housing.

    Another addition was this sweet Poison Spider hood louver. Took a total of 6 hours last night to install. Install was fairly simple but the painting with a touch up pen was extremely time consuming...lol. This should make a huge difference in under hood temps.

    Well might need a new thread title lets maybe call her "JuanTon"...lol. Definitely have to do some cleaning up but for the price I just couldn't pass it up. Amazing what a small world it is since I know the three previous owners of this Jeep. Then it ends up being 5 minutes from the shop all this time.

    Got a deal on some upgrades so I guess this makes it build number 4...lol

    The pictures make it look worse then it is a wire brush would likely take care of it but I'll be blasting them. Plan is right now get the axles cleaned up and under my rig with proper steering and the hydro hooked up after that a stretch and start building the axles. They should essentially just bolt into the current setup which is the reason for purchasing the earlier 60's. Front spring perches are already where they need to be which i'm sure you know :-) Crossing my fingers for 4.10's so that I can run them as is until my budget gets higher.
