        notice the front part of the roll cage coming down the front windshield.

        some mods still got to be made to make it all come together and the rear all has to be installed.

          i assume you're going to lower gears did they replace the carrier? most Dana/Spicer gearsets lower then 3.92 (IIRC) require a new carrier because the pinion is so much smaller. might want to "remind" them of this fact. ain't no way they'd be able to shim out that much space. i hope they aren't going to try!

              Being the I don't want any type of problems type of guy
              I ordered new carriers, complete master install kits for the front and the rear, the electrac unit for 3.92 and up. new ring and pinions front and rear, new front carrier for the 4.56 gears.
              All the shims, bearings, fluid, you name it I got it- just doesn't fit is all.

                  I've given them the serial numbers off the electrac, the ring and pinion, measurements, the old case measurements, old ring and pinion infor, the original tru trac info. pictures of everything on line. Just waiting for them to decide what is wrong.

                  Always something.

                  first agr steering gear was bad, had to send another one.

                  headers were sent missing parts and a used return from someone else.

                  track bar from rubicon was incorrectly made
                  they sent another one after forgetting to send it for a week and I had to call them again about it.

                  first locker was on backorder for 3 months, finaly had to change the order.

                  control arm bracket ordered held up while they made them up.

                  the list goes on

                      Well, should I reinstall the old stuff and go, or wait for the new stuff and stay home???

                      I could bring my dirt bike and ride it that way!!!

                      could bring two dirt bikes and bring the wife!

                      what should I do????

                            ahhh ok.. i was wondering how they were able to keep it on the lift for so long...
                            by the way, i checked the pattern on the ring gear, and it is a thing of beauty it covers most of the tooth... it must be the way the locker works that is allowing the backlash to seem too much.

                              Hey folks!! I'm brand new to your board - visiting from Rockcrawler.com. I noticed that there are members from several off-roading sites planning on doing some 'wheeling at Calico this weekend. My wife and I are planning on being there also, hoping to join a group to run some of the trails (not wanting to do these trails alone). Do you think everyone is going to band together in one large group? Just curious - we're going to be out there Friday AM with the RV and the un-Jeep (a Bronco II - the Jeep's not quite ready for the trails yet ) and didn't want to barge in on a private party.

                              See you there!!
