Hahaha yes. We’re set to go. Most definitely will reach out!
Also big things coming to my Jeep within the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned.
Thanks brother........ probably not unless I decide to go bigger tires, but I think for now I’m just going to run it like this for a while. I’ve got some parts on the shelf, dynatrac ball joints, rock jock upper control arm joints, Yukon rear axle shafts, etc.. I’m just waiting till I need them, trying to get a feel for how long oem parts last running 37s.

Word on the street is you and some buddies are heading my way, if so , be sure and reach out.

This is more for the journal than the build...

So I’ve been informed by Colby that I haven’t give her enough credit for all she does around here, so.........I must give credit where credit is due......

Checking to see if 37s is to high.

My buddy and me had a wrenching day, he tore down a hemi in a Ram he’s gonna rebuild, and I did my knuckles and ball joints. What should have been a few hours turned out to be all day affair, lol. To many chit chat breaks, and it didn’t help there was nascar on the big screen......😁.

The knuckles and ball joints really tightened up the overall feel of the Jeep. My steering was great before this, so good I haven’t bothered getting the new steering box. But it feels rock solid now, hard to explain really, just more planted and responsive. For me it was definitely worth a skinned elbow and a stripped out torx bolt that holds on the rotor, had to drill it out......:facepalm:....... not sure what it’s for, not like the rotor can go anywhere, lol.
Maybe it’s to hold it still while you put on the caliper, but I used to just run a lug nut on to do that......:)

Just a heads up guys, if you’re swapping knuckles, don’t forget this sleeve if you’re running the yeti drag link. Brought to my attention by moto 21. Mine came out with stud but easy to forget if it stays in the knuckle........

Got my Rock Jock upper control arm bushings in.....

No difference in the way it drives. My oem bushings we’re still in pretty good shape.
The biggest difference for me is better articulation, and not having to worry about the bushing wearing out or failing. Here’s comparison pics....

Burning rubber in the mud......:)

giving a shout out for these nittos, they really perform great in our sandy, red clay mixture mud. It’s extremely slick, as you can see a couple times I start to slide back down. You can see them clean themselves and when they got hot the side biters worked great.You can hear the wife cheering me on, lol
At no point did I over rev the engine, although it sounds like it. 😁.

Got these ..........

At full stuff the rear brake line bracket was catching on the jam nut and I didn’t like that the brake line/wheel sensor line were being slightly stretched. Also they were rubbing on the threads of my RK link. ........

This is what you get to deal with wheeling in Florida.......

The sandy mud is like sandpaper, it’s eating into the joints. Won’t be long before I’ll have to rebuild them .......😔.,

Played hooky today and got my poison spyder rocker guards installed. Time consuming but not to difficult.....it was nice do some cosmetic mods for a change. 😁
