I’ve been slowly making progress the last few months. Making the big push now to get all my parts in order for install at the end of the month!

 

Napier Flares went on in early June.

Nice progress

Thanks Dain! 
 

Ordered new axle bearings & seals for the 8.8 & a SOLID Diff cover today. Ended up having to pull the pinion out to get a C-Clip that fell into the pinion bearing oil port. Now I need to order a pinion spacer kit to eliminate the crush sleeve, pinion seal & pinion nut.

Got the 8.8 back together today. Will get the perches & shock mounts burned in once I do the lift install. Hoping to start the install/seap in the next few weeks, still need to order new tierods.

Quite an overhaul going on here

It’s been in the making since early this year when I started collecting parts & been in planning stage since I bought the Jeep.

as soon as the last orders of parts come in, she’ll be done & ready for an alignment

Still waiting on parts & I’ve been nursing a concussion since Fri night courtesy of the XJ’s old draglink… new IRO shackles & RC Control Arm Drop Brackets should be here tomorrow.

i did manage to get the brakes bled, rear U bolts torque & rear diff filled with fluid. My new MOOG draglink is on backorder from ol Amazon.

plan is to get new shackles on tomorrow & get the rear back on the ground for the final time. Then start back on the front with the new drop brackets & doubling up on the coil isolators to level it out.
