A jeep that doesn't feel like it's entering the earth's atmosphere? What about your vibes?
I wouldn't know haha. I've yet to take it up to highway speeds. I've got it apart right now installing the rear Antirock, and now the radiator is out, as well as the grille. I'm preparing for the supercharger and putting in the Griffin aluminum radiator and Spal electric fan.

Once you get your Jeep “done” I really hope you DD that sob with all the coin you got in it

So, my next project will be replacing the rear diff yoke. I purchased a HD Spicer yoke with u-bolts just like I did for the front diff. I will pull the rear wheels, calipers, and rotors so I have no resistance, then get the rotating torque of the pinion with my lb.in. torque wrench. Zip the yoke nut off with the impact, remove the old yoke, smear some grease on the new yoke shaft where the seal rides, then hand tighten the new yoke with a new nut while measuring rotational torque. when I get it to the previous value, I'll go an additional 5 lb.in. more and call it good. Does this sound about the right way to do it? @Rob5589? Edit: it's a D44.
Have you installed the parts yet?

In a continuing search for better storage solutions, I picked up this Bestop roll bar storage bag. I was able to take my entire recovery bag of stuff and transfer it to this bag with room to spare. so far I'm liking it. It's out of the way for when the pup rides along and does't block my rear view much at all. It's got 35lbs. of recovery gear in it so we shall see how well it holds up and may get another one for the other side.

Your old bag is my current one lol. The new one is really nice I may have to pick up a pair of those. One for tools and one for recovery gear. I bet it will clear the soft top if you loosen up the straps then tighten it back up once its fully disassembled.

Since your in the mood for installing parts on the jeep go change out the yokes.
