    Wow, I am looking forward to the final product. I thought your jeep looked good when I saw it at Marble Falls a while ago.

    I saw you are sleeving your front axle. Not a bad idea but I would go another direction based upon your build list. Go with the Dyantrac housing and use your D44 Rubicon innards (if you have a Rubicon).

    I do see some 'beauty queen' in your build and thats good, that said you might want to consider the Rock Crawling Domes to add to your Walker Evans BL (I am assuming they are real BLs not the WE street locks) Here are some tips on dealing with Bead Locks and how to torque them down and the OMF Rock Crawling Domes: http://www.savagesun4x4.com/enter/ho...ps_to_ins.html

    NICE! My favorite part is the windshield graphics. Not that it isn't a SWEEEET Jeep, I'm just all about the Molon Labe. (by the way, how did you get it written like that under your screen name??)
