Good job Yomie !!

I went to Miss. last weekend to see his ride and it looked real good. But his welder drives the ugliest damn jeep I have ever seen:D :D :D . Heads up he,s looking for an early model manual transfercase. Help a wheeler and dig one out of the garage.

Oh, about thoes meats, i'm going to New Orleans today to pick up my 36's, should have pics later this week

Here's what my welder drives, a Grand Cherokee with 4-5" lift and 33's.

That is a tough one. All that height equals instability, yet, lowering it some means cutting body with those 36s. Tough one....................

Congrats on the swap Reggie!!!;)

Geez, that thing is huge Reg!

I would bring it down if it were mine. I brought mine down a little bit once i got it broke in, just to high for me with out the sway bar. Now i've got a sway bar so it feels great.

Congrats on the swap again, looks awesome! Now we need some wheelin pics!

THanks for the compliments again, i have a sway bar on there now too, rides great, but it is high.

Currently i'm running a 6" shacke up front and the 8" warrior in the rear. I'm planning on replacing both sets with a 4" shorty shackle up front and a 6" in the rear (close to stock length). Im really not liking extended shackles, never really have. That will be 1" right there in height. I'll decide more after that. It looks as if i'm going to have to cur more in the rear than the front.

I'm currently working on getting a front drive shaft right now, and am planning to go on a run in Early Feb. will update as soon as more progress is made! :D

Thanks again guy's

yomie,
how is the strength on the d30? i just bought a 87xj and everyone (except from this board) says the d30 on the xj sucks and will exploede if wheeled with 33s. what is your 2 cents on that? i know d30 has been used like crazy here for the SAS.
thanks.

Swak, i'm unsure right now. I have shafts with the 297x joints in them right now(same as a D44), i really don't see too much of a problem with it, but i haven't wheeled it yet. The Ring and Pinion, in my opinion, is the weak point, and there really is no way uf beefing that without going with a D44. I'll keep ya updated on it though.

And again, i don't rock crawl with it, i'm in the south and all we really have is mud, mud and more mud :(
