Nice! Now stop putting thoughts in my head of getting a set and galvanizing them - I have already powder coated mine!

That just looks a little to bling for me


I'm pretty sure I'm going with line x. Got the front tore down today

Will bring them and a few other items Monday.


Found one shot and seized bearing in the left front stub axle, so looks like I'll replace that. Also the cv journal had some bad wear bc of it, so I'll be getting one new CV.

Black appliance epoxy spray paint seems to last the longest in my experience. Put epoxy primer on first, then appliance epoxy, then black waxoyl and you are good pretty much indefinitely on axle cases.

Finally got some parts back from the blaster. Still waiting on axle tubes from line x guy. But once I get them I can start making progress

Here's some work on the worst of the door bottoms

I was wondering where the updates were!

Mike at GSD said you dropped some items off last time I was up there. Can't wait to see how they come out when those guys are done with them.

Nice work on the door frames - I am sure you can notice already a big improvement with your work over the stock LR construction.

Yea amazing how flimsy the stock stuff is. Kinda scary that's all that's between you and a side impact. All the more reason for beefy sliders!

Little progress. Got the rear mostly together (sans brakes).

Really happy with the line-x. Real cool product. Flexible but strong. Easy enough to cut off any mating surfaces. I think I'll be doing a lot more in this finish.



(No that c clamp was not used in any way. Just adding new ballast to balance the assembly while I went and got another jack stand lol)


Now if I only had a chassis.....

No idea if I'll be off-roading it much or not...but figured just put the bracket on there and sleeve while I have it all apart.

I probably won't be doing anything hardcore with it so I'm not super concerned, and a bashed up stabilizer is no big deal, can get home without it, a bent drag link can me more of an issue.

No super concerned about the location, it will be behind and above the drag link, connected to the bottom of the diff, so if it's bashed up then that means the drag link has already been bashed as well. I guess if I hit something in reverse would be the only time where it would be first in the line of fire so to speak.

Glad you got the frame finally!
