    Got a call from the shop today:

    Them: "I have good news and I have bad news"
    Me: "Let's hear it"
    Them: "The good news is that your drive shaft is ok. The bad news is your Ox locker grenaded completely"
    Me: "Uh... well... I guess that would explain the weird noise"
    Them: "Uh..... yes, yes it would"

    Time for an update, I can't believe how time flies!

    I have an Iron Rock off road 7 inch lift long arm kit on the way, including new Bilstein shocks. The front diff was, surprisingly, repairable and now locks and seems to work. So, with a little bit of luck, I'll be coming to Moab with the new suspension all installed and ready to test.

    I will be needing new drive shafts to accommodate the lift, and very likely also a SYE.

    Makes changing the fluids and filters seem like nothing.

    Well, the long arm kit is on.

    Remaining work:
    Limit strap in the front
    Belly skid
    Fender flares

    I'll see if I can find some dirt to play in tomorrow to test out the new setup. So far, having driven the Jeep a bit around town, there's huge difference between the old "frankenstein" suspension and the new Iron Rock stuff. But then again: New geometry, new bushings, new shocks and springs SHOULD make a difference.

    Oh, and, the shop had to re-route the exhaust pipe so they needed to put a new muffler on. Turned out all they had was a Magnaflow. Hate it when that happens

    Got a small amount of dirt on the Jeep today. Got it all cleaned up too.

    After the trip to the spa, the Jeep decided to start misfiring on one cylinder. I never found the bad one, but the problem is gone again.... at least for now.

    Couple of pictures:


    How she sits now, definitely taller


    Front suspension close up


    Rear suspension





    Double!
    Seems to be spraying a bit of fluid, gotta get that looked at
