You might want to think about changing your bumpstops. I had those same ones on my truck and have changed them out 3 times! Everytime I went down a trail I looked back and saw chunks of Red bumpstop littered all over the place.
FYI

David, looks great. Do you hve the side fuel tank like me? Did you make a skid for it yet?

Rob, what bump stops do you recommend?

Safari Gard's new solid bumpstops seem to work better for me. I have only had them on since MAR. I did rip both of the old front bumpstops off at MAR.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the advise. Those are the only thing I ever ordered from Safari Gard and when I got them I made a blood oath to never get anything from them as long as I live. They are not even the right size. I plan on replaceing them for sure but I thought I would give them a try and see how it works. They are way too large in the front. As to the skid plate, I am actually selling the side tank and replacing it with a custom made rear tank. Very high ground clearance and will open up a ton of storage room under the side seat. Maybe a good place for a propane tank!

I agree with your blood oath, I also made the same mistake(s)
If you are very nice to Mary Chadd she might replace the crap ones you have with the new ones. I about to change out my fronts and will email you a picture of the new ones.

Thanks,
I would like to see them. The way I see it if I only waisted 140 bucks at SG I am way ahead of most rover owners so I should just count my blessings.

The board won't let me post my pictures. They are too big 2mb. It won't recognize the smaller JPE's for some reason. If you want to see the pictures and have a fast connection email me and I will send them to you.

Hey Yousef,

The front 9 is being dropped in as we speak. I have not gotten any pictures and being as the shop is 900 miles away I have yet to drop by. I wish I could real bad. I will post up as many pictures as I can, especially when the funky lift gets a good start. Hey I noticed your caption:

"I see sunray engineering axles in my future!"

Have you by any chance seen this:

40 Spline HUGE shafts for under 3g's delivered. The Camo 40 runs 10 grand. I thought you might like that!

The link is not working!

If you don't mind, can you tell me how much you paid for your both axles. I just want to compare it to sunray's axles.

You can email me the #'s if you want.

Thanks,

Hey,

Sorry about that, try this:

http://performanceunlimited.com/cust...inchaxles.html

Look at the 40 spline stuff. Holy crap!

As to the price, I am not sure if I have the authority to tell people, I will ask and then let you know. To give you a clue, it is WAYY less than the sunray axles.

I should add again that I have the 1.37in 31 spline axles. The 35 spline is a little more but not much. I am going to have a almost impossible time breaking those without a krawler box and/or bigger tires. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
