Its needed new tires for a long time,I was gonna get them a few months ago but the XJ needed tires worse and the MJ got bumped.

 

Now that the weather is changing i decided it had to happen,i didnt want to have to drive another winter on the old tires.

 

 

One more thing i can scratch off the MJ to do list :banana:

went up the mountain today to do some sleding.

 

It was alot of fun till i got stuck and broke my front axle getting out,I snapped the right u-joint and had to limp it back to town where i had a friend meet me with a trailer.

Cool pix, Mt Hood? Are you running the stock D30 with those 33's?

I really like what you did with the interior. (The Headliner, and Dakota Seats) It looks sick!

well rather then fix my axle i got another one, i got a non disco D30 from a 94 XJ with ABS so its got the big u-joints. should be a little stronger then the original axle.

 

I'm picking it up tomarrow,then the MJ gets to go in the garage for a while so i can put it in and address some other issues.

He calls it our dude truck, hes only 6 but he helps me with it as much as he can. Hes grown up wrenching on stuff so he is quite handy.

Ive decided to go with control arm drop brackets (for now).

 

I also decided to build them rather then buy them, Ive almost got one side done

Looks like someone has a plasma cutter!

 

What kind of machine do you have? I've got a thermal dynamics cutmaster 52. Best part about it is it's hooked up to a 4'x4' CNC table ;)

i used one of them fancy Oxy-acetylene units (AKA the old fashion way)

 

A plasma is on my wish list

What LCA's are ya going to use?

 

for now i might put the stock ones on it to get it back on the ground but i plan to either buy or build some adj arms with Johnny joints.

Thanks,

 

I'm kinda liking the 3 eyed look besides I don't have room to add a light and it works too well to remove one.

 

 

I have an idea for another one that will use either 2 or 4 lights,i might put it on my XJ

 

And sometimes having an even amount doesn't necessarily mean it will look better

If it HAS to be in 'threes', Audi has a set up that is very race-proven
