Well I installed a new bikini top. My old one bit the dust. Went from a strapless style to a strap style. Will see how long this one lasts. The other one was really old.

Parents are visiting from Texas. Been driving my Dad around in the Jeepster. He's constantly looking for a reason to go for a drive.  Cheers

Picked mine up from OCD Offroad in Stafford last night.  I was rear-ended on I-95 and the upper left control arm mount was destroyed.  Scott welded on a new SafeTCap section and it looks great!

Lubed the QA1 bearings on the long arms.  Been daily driving it and it started squeaking.  All quiet on the XJ front now.  Checked all the fluids in preparation for the drive to central PA this weekend for a radio contest.  No runs no drops no errors.

Adam and I got my D44 installed over the weekend. We are going to be pulling my D30 and getting my ARB compressor installed today. Once everything is hooked up, Iíll get some pictures going.

Dain - Nice I am jealous. Now for the bigger question is that a clocking ring on the D-300? If it is, what position are you planning to install the D-300?

It is a clocking ring on it. I was planning on putting it in the stock position. And therefore, I would not need the ring at all.

Am I right?

True you will not need the clocking ring if mounted in the stock position BUT many of the kits include an extended input shaft to compensate for the ring thickness. If you remove the ring the input shaft may be too long to properly mate with your transmission....

Good to know. I will worry about that now.
