So i got the spacers in today. Jeeps sitting perfectly level now. Was pretty easy. Just unbolted the lower ca, breaks, shocks, and disconnected the sway bar. Droped the axle way down with the frame on jack stands. Poped out the springs removed the spring vib pad, put on spacer then vib pad again. Then spring. Took about 1 hour and 15 min total with clean up.

Well last night i broke my rear axle. Not exactly sure what in the rear axle, but im pretty sure i fryed the ring gear or pinion gear. The axle wont pull out so i know i didnt break one of those. But thx to whidbey4x4! He hooking me up with another 8.25 rear end with same gearing today. So im hoping to get that one in soon. Atleast for the walker trip on the 7th ill have spare axle shafts. And i can use the my blown rearend to rebuild and do a 29 splin swap, and grand cherokee disks, and an aussie locker. And if i can save up enough ill do a gear down too. So i can just throw that one back under the jeep when its done so i dont have to much down time.

Thx whidbey4x4!

So last night i was able to go remove whidbey4x4's spear axle housing from his parts jeep. Went surprisingly fast, since it was dark all by hand with wheels as jack stands. Only took about 20 mins minus the e brake cable. Now to swap my axle shafts into the new housing ( his axle shafts will be spears) change the gear oil, and check seals and bearings. And BACKLASH.

Atleast i now have 2 spear axle shafts from this whole ordeal.

Thx dave. They came out really nice i love them. And ya i found out today that both my spider gears exploded. Which pot chunks of the gears through the ring gear and pinion gear. But i now have a spear housing as well as 2 spear axles. So now i can use the old axle housing as a mock up for any extra protection or renforcments i want to add to the one under the jeep. Gussets or u joint skid or custom built dif guard. That sorta thing.

So thought i would do an update, havnt done to much. I did a thuro cleaning of the throttle body and all the sensors. I installed a trans temp gauge. As well as re-preloaded all the joney joints in my x flex arms. And of course i also put on a couple more stickers haha. Mainly i have been preparing the jeep for the trip to walker on the 7th.
