And a Dana 44 and disc brake upgrade. Scored the housing in a trade. I Geared it to 4.88’s with track lok carrier. Buddy gave me the ARB cover (thanks Scott with Cloakworks)
Finally get rid of the Dana 35!
Then onto finding a cheap high pinion Dana 30 out of a XJ and get that built. Granted it’s still a 30, but the XJ has a larger ring gear and a bit tougher being a reverse cut gear set. Can’t afford a front 44, but this Jeep will never be doing hardcore trails
Made use of the TJ this weekend finally. Just a overnight trip to do a shake down run. Definitely need to have better organization! My OCD was going nuts. And the smittybilt tent pad is horrible, I’ll be looking for more padding in future trips. All and all though, my daughter and I had a great time.
