With the help of a good friend Chris Berry (ROCKBUGGY) I replaced the ball joints on my drag link, which turned into a major project. After removing them found out that the Currie ball joints that you should be able to swap out on the trail. I needed to go buy a 2" sockets a torch and needed a vise and about 2 hours of beating on the damn thing with an impacted wrench got them swapped out. Touched up some paint and rotated the tires. Thanks again Chris...

This week was pretty good for me and Cody. He scored some new tires for Whitey (XJ) at my request for cheap. And I did his axle gearings and SOA install. His height went up about 10 inches and tire size up from a 29" to the 35" claws. It was done on the cheap and most of the stuff was given to him by various people. Thanks RockBuggy for the claws. All in all I think he has about $750 in the lift including shocks, tires, rims, SYE, drive shaft, drop pitman, front ARB, rear Auburn, 4.10 gears, disc brake 8.8, HP30, brake lines and brackets.



And today it looks like this.....


And then also today *not on a jeep but for all of the jeeps* this got delivered. And yes I will need help assembling this 1000sqft building!!

That is correct. The tires he got were for my XJ and then I worked on the YJ. And I will be needing help as soon as I get the engineer sealed drawings for the building. I have the foundation getting done early this upcoming week and I hope to have the permit for the building by the end of the week. Then it's on like donkey kong.
