    Just Emptied Every Pocket

    The day I picked this jeep up i trailered it into work...from across the parking lot i can hear Chrisbuilt yellin at me... (trying to warn me i think).. He did a little lookin at the jeep then pointed at in the word written on my fender.. ya know what that means dont ya? Jeep.. just empty every pocket. (Thanks for the warning Chris!!!) Since i bought this jeep thats all i have done.. the guy who owned this jeep before me probably shouldn't have even built a bird house. After fixing as much of this stuff myself that I could, even picking up a dana44 front and a 9'' rear. I realized that i didnt have the skills to install these myself so i contacted Staang to see what we could do. This weekend i headed down to his shop to see the progress. I have to say that I was very impressed with the Install.. as you can see from the pictures the axles are pretty much installed. I brought him two rusty axles and i now have freshly rebuilt and painted axles, just in need of some steering bolts, sway bar link parts, and a couple trips to the alignment table and she's good to go!
    i have to say i was very impressed with you Eric. The axles i got we not in the shape the seller told me they were. With the very little back ground on the axles Eric was able to find the nessesary wide variety part needed to complete the build. Thank you Eric i appreciate all the time and effort you put into my jeep, and would recommend you to anyone who asked... Can't wait to wheel this thing.

    Looks good. Maybe should have listen to Chris!!! Joking! You'll love a heep.

    Never gotten anything built by Eric, but wheeled one day with him and would be happy to do it again. Standup, Knowledgable, and honest. Great qualities in this day and age!

    I hope the 9" takes abuse better then the 35 did. I don't think towing a 4runner and a 2 axle trailer up hamilton mountain is a smart thing to do with a Dana 35, V8 and 35" tires.

    But I did worn you about the limits of the axles... Silly carhauler.
