Felt good, with a little fine tuning should be a lot tighter. Curious how the 3 spd is gonna do on the hwy with the 4.88s and 37s. Probably gonna flat tow it til I get a trailer.

Looks awesome. I have 4.56s with 35s and the AX15 and I want to convert to Auto so I'm curious how yours does as well.

I wouldn't do the 3 spd, I'd look into an AW4 with the OD. I ran 35's with 410s with this 3 spd and OD was wanting.

The AW4 is going to need something like the RAD shifter, right?

You can use the RAD shifter, If your YJ is fuel injected. You should be able to wire in the AW4 computer into your wiring harness. I did this on mine. I have the MPI kit on my YJ, since is was carbed when I got it. Also mine was stick prior to adding the AW4. I used STU's site for reference when I did mine. You will need to get the pin diagram for your computer, to let you know what wires to tap into. I'm not using the RAD shift with mine, I have one just need to wiring it in one day.

After losing my mind with copper washers I got these aluminum ones that have a rubber seal on the inside part of the ring. Finally got the banjo bolts to stop leaking. The brake line fittings had a flat smooth surface as opposed to a grooved surface that seemed to prevent a seal from occurring.

Found a piece of concrete, flexed a little, took some measurements for shocks. I flipped the tie rod under my knuckle using Ruffstuffs inserts, looks good. Drag link barely clears at full stuff.

Turns out I overlooked the pinion angle with the new springs and I'm gonna have to move it, it's like 10* off.
