Never started on here, figure I should so you all can see whats going on.

This is the day I brought it home.
Image

Two days after I went up to northern Georgia to River Rock offroad park to wheel it.
Image
Image
Image
Image
This is where I laid my shackle against the frame pushing the whole side of the axle back bending a leaf spring and denting the shock.
Image
Image

After that I went and tuned up everything
Then I put my winch on and replace the stock fogs with hella 500ffs
Image

Went and got stuck in some water.
Image
Which gave me this. Anyone want a strawberry milk shake?
Image
That led to me pulling the trans and a full rebuild
Image
Got high energy clutches and a shift kit. Also had the vent line re-routed to prevent this from happening again.
Did some wheelin
Image

Did some cosmetic mods as well.
Image

Picked up a set of 84 waggy axles to put in. d44 front amc20 rear. Going full width, regear, and lockers front and rear.
Image

And I just got back from Jeep Beach and found out out my trans doesn't like the highway for more than an hour so I got a auxiliary trans cooler I will be puttin in soon.

Everything minus the spider gears and one thrust washer looked good. Luckily my buddy who helped me put it in had a spare good condition thrust washer he gave me.

After installing the aussie I can't tell a difference on road but with the couple small obstacles I've played on I can already notice a HUGE difference.

This culvert I could not climb up on in the YJ. The tire that wasn't touching the culvert would just spin and the one I had on the culvert didn't want to budge. After the aussie, it crawls right up it like it wasn't even there.

I am currently in the process if building an 8.8 to replace the weak d35. It has disc brakes and I am regearing front and rear to 4.56. To make the install of the 8.8 easier I am buying the 8.8 install/truss kit from Artec. I might put an Aussie in the rear or I might just wait and save up for an arb or ox locker.

Leaving the 30 in for now and truss it. going to eventually put a selectable locker in and Chromo shafts. The 30 with Chromo shafts can handle 35s.

If you have any questions feel free to ask! I have become somewhat familiar with wrangler. Yjs and tjs aren't too terribly different and I've had experience with both. Lol

Got it a present.

Ford 8.8, 3.73's, disc brakes, and all old bracketry that is in the way has been removed already. Now to just put the brakes on, and order my Artec swap/truss kit then burn that on. Or, depending how I feel, I have a buddy with an old d35 and he said I can cut those brackets off and weld them on the 8.8. I'm going to run it with the 3.73s for a while and just pull the front DS until I can afford to regear front and rear.

It's getting there. Just need to put the other parking brake, rotor, and caliper on. Then I need to buy parking brake cable, hard brake lines, the truss kit and a few odds and ends. Getting close though!
Also, after I did some research I found out this axle has a factory limited slip! Score.
