Products on order:
1 x Crossover Steering Stabilizer -
2 x Heavy Duty Pinion Seal -
1 x High Steer Kit for Hilux -
1 x Front Axle Service Kit -
2 x 4.88 ring and pinion -

My earliest pic of it below.
And yes, 8 years. Nuts, I've never had a vehicle NEAR as long. I think I had the green and silver imp wagons for 3 years each. . .

With any luck, I'll be able to keep my same driving habits, but actually be easier on the vehicle by not having to take charges at off camber stuff. Whole new ballgame I gotta get used to.

Well, got to take it up to Evans Creek and see if lockers and gears are all they're cracked up to be. Yes. They are. Got to go up the big rock face on lower 311, went up it like it was nothing, didn't spin a tire. Did a bunch of trails, had a blast.

T'was the frist time my truck ever gave me crap. The alternator died on the way up, changed it out in the parking lot while waiting for my front gears to cool. (break in time) No biggie.

After all sorts of trails, I started hearing a random clank. Turns out, one of the rear leaf springs broke. The broken side turned inwards, bounced and popped a hole in my gas tank. :eek: So we limped it back to Ken's, drained the tank, and patched it with some good old jb weld. All better.

Due to the overwelming amount of responses to this thread, I might as well post a couple more pics. :lol:

Painted my damn wheels, much better now.

Nice idea with the mirror. That is the only complaint I had while rolling doorless as well.

A simple ea81 mirror and a couple of self tappers. It fits into the body line perfectly. It's a little bit forward, so you have to crane your neck to actually use it, but it's friggin' legal.

The knuckes were NASTY before the front axle got rebuilt. Nasty.


Trail Gear has a set of decently priced doors, but we only get such a small amount of hot enough days to take the doors off that it doesn't seem worth almost 300 (shipped).

I wish I could have more money to play with the Jeep.  Here's what I'm up against, these things have ENDLESS amounts of add ons and the like.
