Picked up my SUA Ford Low Pinion front Dana 44 axle de-tubed from a local machine shop. Aiming to do a custom width 44. Allows for 36’s and a low-COG setup. I’ll run the 8.8 inch next-gen 44 gear sets in it. All for my YJ build. Ill run 3 inch tubes.

Rear axle is going to be bomb proof. Waiting on Spidertrax to get some rear axles in stock. With KOH around the corner, they have been swamped.

I am beginning to get more and more excited about my Jeep YJ build. The parts
just keep on piling up.

A couple of boxes from GearWorks showed up today. This stuff is on another level..Ultra 4/KOH level.

Attached a few teasers. The high pinion 10 inch third is massive and pure axle porn.

I recently replaced the 32's on my LJ with 35's. The 32's still have plenty of life left in them, so I put them to good use.
I put them on my 96 V8 ZJ. I also added a 2" budget boost and did a little trimming to the front plastic fenders.

My "today" for doing something to my CJ started on Thursday when I got it fired up for the first time in 1-1/2 yrs. Then on Friday I washed it but wasn't too happy with how it looked so I took samples of both the yellow and purple to Home Depot and got a matching quart of each and a quart of black to do some touch ups. No, Home Depot doesn't match anything other than latex paint but I needed it to look better to be taken to a memorial fundraiser for the previous owner.

Before:

After, if anyone wonders about the bodywork, I did what I call PA style, cover the holes with duct tape and paint:

Yesterday I worked on ordering a rear axle and a few parts to support it.

Today was another day of executing purchases.

This morning I pulled the trigger on a very clean GM 6.0L LQ9 which is their highest output 6.0 for that gen of GM engines.

Ordered a transmission for my LS swap.
Maximum transmission has a pretty good reputation in the Ultra 4 and rock bouncer world.
Ordered a built 4L80E today. Should take about 5 weeks to get it to my door.
