    Default MVCs latest help w/the O'pile

    90% done on the axles/suspension. Few minor things to clean up after going to full width to get everything to work perfect. Pretty much everything on my Jeep is either from Mountan Valley Customs or Rob himself. I have a bad habbit of buying his hand me downs.

    Latest upgrades:
    HP D44 w/high steer 5:13 gears hub lock
    Ford 9'' spool, 5:13 gears
    Rusty's off road 6'' long arm with room to go
    Full crusher corners
    FJ crusier swing out converted for TJ
    Genrite hood louvers
    Electric fan
    Dick Cepek wheels
    And a 4cyl eng getting 20mpgs w/35x12.50s, gears increased total travel mileage by 70+ miles per tank!

    Sweet. Looks great... Now all you need to do is drive up to MVC and thank them personally (and seeing as you are coming up bring those 4:88's with you).

    Well like I said I'm getting far better mpg, 4L 1st gear is unbelievable! I still need to do some adjustments now that I have full width axles, so once I get it all done I'm going to put it through the ropes! But so far I'm extremely happy with the set up!
