    My next project

    So after making the move to Whitby, keeping a truck and a dolly just to haul a jeep 2 hours north didn't make sense. Sooooooo, sell the truck, sell the dolly and sell the TJ- yes thing 2 is gone. So now a little more road friendly and family friendly rig. The jeep is in amazing condition, 212000K, oil seals leak, but not much. Runs and drives like a top, it came certified and etested as well as with a hardtop winch/storage and 3 tops. It has 35" tires already.
    So already installed evap skid.
    Spartan front lunchbox locker.
    New trailhead custom bumper waiting for install, currently in garage,
    Will be doing the following over the next several months
    rear bumper/tire carrier
    D3 full skid plate
    rock rails, maybe evo
    4:88 gears
    rear eaton locker

    Well she is not totally gone, piece by piece lol, my son is parting it out.
    This one was a score ZERO rust babied big time, the only thing I hate about it although its a good thing, was it has been oil sprayed heavily! I installed the evap skid. Took 10 mins to install, then it took me 30 mins to get clean from all the oil spray lol

    YUP it sucks, no matter what you're working on, you will end up coated in it! But it does stop the rust!

    Thanks Bernie, this one is a little diferent to wheel, the long wheel base makes a huge difference, and reqiures very different approach angles. But I like the change.

    Yep, diagonally up everything.
    Taking that first bolder at the bottom of forest on a more than 45* angle is going to feel weird

    Well the titan winch shit the bed before I could get it mounted on the new jeep. FAWK! Guess it didn't want to come off the TJ! So for now, going to grab a Smittybuilt 9.5 XRC. should make do for now. Hopefully get that m ounted and the new bumper in a couple weeks! Seems life is just too fawking busy these days.
    This weekend will be ujoint replacement in the front axle shafts, I have some clicking going on that I don't like, so better safe then sory.

    So out working on the jeep today, looking for the clicking coming from the front axle, well I found it! Lost the cap for a ujoint, ovaled the hole in the ear! FAWK! I had picked up a pair of spare shafts from Jim at Rockspyder, decided to put in new spicers joints before installing, uhm the 5-760X was too small! Turns out Jim had given me rubicon axle shafts WOOT! They where used, but hey sweet. Super beefy ears on them, Problem though, none of the auto parts stores around here had the right ujoint! Double fawk! So of to Jims Monday!

    So I couldn't do any more work on the axle, so I started installing the new bumper. Its mounted, but still have to wire the winch and some other small stuff.

    Jeep changed plans part way through the jk. Originally you could use the 760 joints but they had too many issues with trashed ears causing warranty work. So they changed joints and said you now have no choice but to buy complete shafts when the joint goes. Fun times, I think there is a Spicer joint to replace it but I don't know the number.

    That's a 760x on the left, and a USA alloy on the right. I will post the part number later, but Jim at Rockspyder has them! They do not exist in moog
