No he needs the LSD. Because I want my garage floor space back. And money.

I have zero complaints honestly. I drive it to work just fine. I'm waiting to explode an axle doing something dumb

Got a bunch of work done yesterday. Finished the CB and stereo install. Test fit the wheels, lots of cutting will need to be done...

Mounted the 4' antenna where the stock radio antenna was, fit pretty good, used lots of hot glue.



CB radio and switches for the yet to be install LED light bars



Cut the hell out of the rear doors to get these boomers to fit, sounds pretty nice



Made a little shelf to mount the amp for the subwoofer in the back, no need for that spare anymore..



CB speaker has a nice little home here by the e-brake



This is where all the fun is, finalizing the suspension plans and I'll have a welder soon...

Jeep springs show up on Monday so this weekend I'll get the skidplate and IPD upgrade fuel pump installed. If I find enough free time I'll also drill the 7" holes in the grill for the 7" round lights and get those mocked up.

Designed some painfully simple trim rings for the lights in Fusion630, 3D printing them on my printer tomorrow.

Installed the stock HD Jeep Comanche front springs, on the rear. Super simple, just had to fab up my own bottommountboltthingy. 2.25" lift from stock height, going to make a 1" spacer to get some more lift out of it.
