The only thing about a Yj that's reliable is its mechanic.

Joey to Mike- That's more like it! Never done.....just outta money at the moment.

atjeep-Every time a YJ passes inspection, an angel gets it's wings.

Looks like you could pull an engine out with it too. Multi-purpose!

Big decision today... decided to go with 35ís for the time being.  Got a great deal and had a few gift Cards.  Good news is this lets me put some stuff off, just need to decide on lift.... and, this plan will keep my tj around!

Damn working in the cold sucks... but the hard part is done.  I screwed up the install of the Oil seal in the carrier, but should have it all set by this weekend.

Before I get the 37ís on, need to finish bumper, get inspected, do some cutting, and then make a few decisions.

Late comment but as a new guy I'm catching up on other builds..

That oil seal on the LoD is a pain! Took me and Shock Crawler a good bit of time, had to quit due to darkness and finished it off the next day after using a dremel to slightly custom fit it. I do like the look and function of the LoD bumper and tire carrier. Your build is nice!

So, I donít remember if I ever posted about this, but since you brought it up... this is the seal the bumper came with, ... I was so careful, but didnít want to sit well.  Finally thought I got it and bent the hell out of it.  

Ended up doing a bunch of searching, by part number and size.  The part number (450068) kept bringing me to a seal that had different measurements.  ; And it was pricey, like $20.  Since it was amazon, i bought the last two in stock and Bought 2 with the exact measurements the bumper came with; only a few bucks a piece.  

Here is a comp against the busted seal (I ended up canceling the similar seals)

The reinforced metal on both sides makes all the deference.  

LOD stuff is strong and their bumpers are on both of my jeeps.  Still, hearing another person had an issue with the seal, I hope that they just ran out of the seals and used a similar part??

(back yard poser rock!)

With the 37ís on stock suspension, I was getting tired of rubbing when turning... so went ahead and put the 2.5 inch lift on, as Iím not yet ready to drop more loot on a 4 inch lift.  Still very happy with progress!!  Soft top is on back order but supposed to be in before the end of May (got it for a great price so worth the wait). 

Going to concentrate on this one for a little while since the top and doors seem to have fallen off somewhere??
