  • *deep breath* --Finally!!!

    Just had to share my deep rooted feeling of "I'm glad that's over"!

    The title to the jeep finally showed up today!

    Just in time for me to find out I have a bad TRE on my two month old Currie steering system, and I have a u-joint cup that tried to jump out of the short side axle shaft. Luckily, it didn't make it all the way out, so I was able to beat it back into place, but I have a feeling that the ear is stretched, as it went back in WAY to easy. New axle shafts here I come. yee haw. More $$$ down the drain. I'm supposed to be saving money now that I don't have any payments, not spending more!

      Glad to hear it's all yours.

      I suggest the warn hub conversion and alloy inners. If your interested let me or Erik know, we can direct you to someone who'll get you a good deal.

      a good deal for goodtimes, ha, that's crackin' me up.:yay:

      <edit> just remembered you've got one of those fancy TJs. I'd bet the hubs would work but you'd need some other inners i think.</edit>

          Yea, one of those "fancy" TJ's. It might get a whole lot fancier next weekend.....if I still have a job (we find out Wednsday if we are closing the plant down). I found a ferd with a pair of dana 60's (kingpin front!) that was donated to charity (who is auctioning it off). Fortunately, they don't seem to know just what exactly they have, and the starting bid is supposed to be $100.

                Yea, they really are. But they would be really cool.

                Unfortunately, I probably won't have the $$$ to actually build those axles for quite some time....about the time I did, I would have to go ahead and dive into a serious round of modifications. But before I hacked up a basically new (03) TJ for a trail rig, I would probably buy some old beat up toyota that was rolled from a junk yard, put the 60's under it along with a crawler box and a set of 38's, and keep the jeep for light wheeling/camping, etc.

                But it is fun to think about!

                  Just an update, if anyone is interested. I just unloaded my d60's (HP front). By the time it was all said and done (tax, title, towing, etc), it cost me just shy of $600 for both axles, the driveshafts, and the t'case (which I have yet to identify---just haven't had time to clean it off yet).

                  I also ordered the new drivers side axle shaft for the 44 in the jeep (inner and outer, new u-joint, unit bearing and seal), direct from DC, for $132. For that price, I may order a spare long side. The short side is still usable for a spare if I TIG the one u-joint cup in place.

                  So, in all, I am pleased with the last 2 days worth of work! Now I just gotta find something to put the 60's in.

                    If you can't find anything to put your 60's on, I'd be happy to let you borrow my fancy TJ for a while

                    Or just throw together a buggy :p

                      Thanks for the offer seamonkey, but don't worry, I'm sure I'll find *something* to put the axles under.

                        Seaspan has a good idea. You have all that fancy welding/bending stuff. Build a buggy!

                          Have you priced steel lately? No way, I'm to poor for that!

                          Maybe if I find a job in the next couple of months.
