    Fired #2 6L up and sounded great............till it lost oil pressure. Dropped pan and checked things out, found bad oring on pick up, swapped and same thing. Going to pull everything out front back off, put in a new pump and cross my fingers. It has been a real motivation killer so haven't done much. Also, challenger got racked up so i'm car shopping as well as i picked up a bike. Yay, another project. lol

    Love your built!
    Where did you find the program to figure out control arm length
    and etc?
    Why didn't you go with a 1 ton axle set up?

    Thanks man. Calculators are here http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=204893
    Got a deal on the built 3/4 tons. Probably 5 times cheaper than building tons.

    Thanks for the link!
    Where did you source the 3/4 ton axles from?
    Why would it have been 5 times cheaper then 1 tons?

    Got them mostly built off someone locally who was going to tons. 5 times is a guess but $1000+ for junk yard tons then gears, lockers, brakes, rebuilding, kingpins, etc., etc. So much cheaper and easier buying built IMO

    Thanks guys. No trailer, she'll be drivin to the trail. Beadlocks are kinda he said she said. I know people running them and no problems.

    Finished the rear sway bar. Made some new mounts and flipped the old bar from the d35. Painted drums. LOL. Still trying to figure out if it's legal to run no tail pipe. Gonna hit the rubi tonight and when i get home hopefully finish the rear. (run brake hard lines, shock mounts). Front should hopefully be finished by mid week.

    oh, wasnt too sure on how sticky the fuzz is on them beadlocks..

    also as far as i know u dont need a tailpipe, like as long as you have a small dump on the back of muffler you should be ok (45deg angle pipe or so) all tho with the fumes under the jeep like that u might smell them more, and there is more of a chance for the floors to rot out faster due to the exhuast not really having anywere to go...

    btw is this your DD ? lol
