No, itís not much different than stock RPM wise. It still have the stock speedometer calibration and it reads just a bit slow. Like 75 on the gauge is like 80.

Stuck them in the vise and beat them over. It took some time and was exhausting!

The Jeep went hard last weekend. I had zero issues and climbed everything I really tried save for 1 rock wall. I almost got up about the time I started basking the driveshaft off a rock. I decided to back off and wheel the rest of the day instead.

I tried heating up the tires but it didnít really help. It sprinkled all day also. Muddy wet rocks suck.

Good poser picture.

The one mud hole I didnít go around but should have....

You still have more you want to do to s XJ? I have my 1Tons waiting to go in, might wait till summer to do it. Watching your build I might just do it sooner. I will have a fully built ford 8.8 with detroit locker and a d30 with ARB all chromoly for sale when I do my swap if you know any one. Low miles 4:88 with hydro assit.

Yeah, Iíve got little projects and things I want to change/make better. I need to finish the cage. Right now itís just protecting the driver and passenger.

Where are you at and how much are you looking to get out of your axles?

My original plan was to buy a G2 Dana 44, but a buddy was like we could do tons for that price. I regretted doing the tons until this past summer. Once I got all the bugs worked out and had wheeled it a bunch. It so wide, long and low that it very comfortable even on the rowdiest of trails.
