    An upgrade in a sense to the MJ happened, It graduated to weekend/fun car since I got a dedicated daily. here's my 2006 HEMI Grand WK. Fully loaded, 130k miles, still on warranty, and a beast of a daily. Its immaculate, has all service records, not a blemish inside or out, it is really surprising that it has 130k on it, you would think it has no more than 10-15k based on condition of it. With a 7200lb towing capacity itll be able to lug around the mj with relative ease if or when the need be. Itll stay relatively stock; CAI, exhaust, stereo and maybe some paint on the wheels is all itll get.

    Another saturday used wisely. Started building my new harness. It is a 5 relay and fuse box. Every relay has its own fuse and it is al run off a single CAT5 cable to the switch panel. So only one cable has to go into the cab and dash as opposed to one wire per switch. Also installed my theft deterrent device.

    When I lived in Arizona I bought it there, when I moved back to socal I couldn't fit it in the back of the XJ along with all my belongings so it stayed with a friend. That friend is wheeling in Johnson Valley this weekend and agrees to bring it if I met him there to get it. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Been a busy week. First and foremost I took the lady and the jku up to Johnson Valley to pickup my front axle I've owned for almost a year but didn't have access to. I bought it because it was too good of a deal to pass up at the time even though I had an XJ on rockjock 44s. But I knew one day I would have something that needed it. And here we are. So first photo is the housing. It's a 1979 F-250 Dana 44. This is the one with the 3"x 1/2" axle tubes. And normally it comes with the 8 lug outers that have dual piston brakes. But the same year F-150 Dana 44's have interchangeable outers. So I also got the 5x5.5 F-150 outers and single piston calipers. With this setup I'll net around a 66" WMS front axle. The F-150 of those years has a rear Ford 9" at a 66" WMS as well. So I'll be sourcing one of those soon. The next set of photos are my new rims. To anyone who knows broncos or F-150s of the early to mid 90's might recognize these wheels. They are a Ford and Alcoa partnership wheel. These are incredibly strong and super light. 15x7.5 in size with a 5x5.5 bolt pattern. With these narrower wheels, and wider axles I'll end up being pretty close to the same stance I currently have, but with a much nicer wheel to axle geometry and scrub radius. And much stronger axles in the end. I'll be running 35*10.5*15 all terrain tires either in the General or BFG flavor. Undecided yet. I'm planning to stretch the front a little for packaging reasons and it'll help out not having to reconfigure the front driveshaft also. Enjoy: Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Gotcha, just take your time and make sure to use a decent quality product and process. They will come out nice as long as they arent damaged. My extra set of wheels had clearcoat peeling so I powerwashed them and didnt go any further and you can see how much better the good condition wheels are, even though they havent been cleaned in a month or so.

    I used mothers polish. Did a really good powerwash, first round of polish with a ratty coarse rag, then clean, then another round of mothers polish with a microfiber. Gave it a nice polished, not shiny look. Very deep aluminum color. Spent about 1.5 hours on each wheel and it came out nicely. Just mothers aluminum polish compound. Before is actually more shiny than after (tire mounted photo) but I was actually glad about that, I didnt want the shiny look, otherwise id have gotten chrome rims.
