    Default OX and 4.88's ARE DONE!!

    Well I got them all done and I got to actualy do about 95% of the work.
    Here I am getting ready to go to the shop

    I did the rear on Fri and the front on sat. I will say the AMC 20 IS WAY BIGGER than the D30 LOL
    here is the rear pattern

    that was the first try too I did find out one of the springs on the rear brakes broke (that was causing the klunking noise I had just started hearing
    her's the rear


    the front ALL pulled apart

    NOT a lot of room in the front

    and the front installed

    here are the shifters. I'm not sure if I'll leave them here or not, but they DO work

    and looking down from my point of view

    Overall I'm verry happy with the 4.88's. Now I have not gotten the Jeep off base yet, but it REALLY feels easier to drive with them.
    any questions or comments feel free to ask away

    Congrats on the duel OX's. Nice Rig.. Just curious, who made your shackle reversal. I am interested because I notices your front end geometry and your use of your shackles. Should drive well and no bump steer.

    It's the MORE stubby SRS w/buggy springs. it gave me no EXTRA lift Now granted I do need to take out the shims I had in the front, but I'll try to do that next weekend (I just have never gotten around to doing it)

    Looks good. How many hours total do you guesstimate it took? I ask because this is on my list...way down the road, but on the list.

    Well I went in at about 9Am on both days and was out the door at 1900 (7PM) so about 8-9 hours each day if you count the lunch brake.. Now also remeber this was for and OLD 84 CJ. my buddy did his 06 TJ and I think they got both front and rear done in a day.

    NOW we got both sets of gears set up almost on the first try. the rear was one time, and the front we had to mess with shims for a while. we DID have some set up bearings for the front (cause the shims go on before the bearings) and that made life WAY better.

    I'm just glad that I can now fill in this check box now.

    thanks guys. yeah they shift in and out SUPER easy. Granted I might need to mess with the rear just a bit. I was in my parking lot at work All loose gravel, and I was messing with it... was fine and then made a clunking noise, and then fine again. I'm not really getting the description right... sorry.

    again so far I love the gears, not too low from what I can tell.. I'm gonna take it off base today, and put a bit of driving on it. I'll let yall know

    my buddy put 5.13's in his TJ and he actualy gained 2MPG supposedly
