                      Looks great! Interested in hearing how the tires, tranny, and diff gearing work together.

                        Absolutely drives fantastic. No squeaks or rattles, just smooth power. I love the gearing, it works better than stock. Freeway revs are 2500-2800.

                        I drove back from Big Bear with 20lbs of air in the tires and it was boggy. With 25lbs in them it rides like a dream, great accelleration and great handling. I love the Anitirock, just enough sway stop but still flexes offroad. Steers like it's on rails. I don't know if it's the big Rancho steering damper or what, but it's super stable on the road, drives like it's on rails. Gotta love it.

                        Next is to hook up the ARB and run the air lines, do the dash switches and hookup lights. Bumper and rack installs tomorrow, safari rack, jerry can rack and CO2 mount.

                        Thanks for all the positives from everyone. It's been a lot of planning and hard work. Jeeps are built, not bought right??? :gun:
