    Tacked together the Genright transmission crossmember today. This allows the skid to be removed without bracing the tranny/transfer case.







    Tomorrow gonna tack in the Genright rear double trinagulated 4 link crossmember.




    And I made a wrench for the heim joints

    Awesome, I need to get me one of those crossmembers. Might make putting the Klune in a little easier.

    Genright Belly Up skid arrived, frame mount holes did not line up, I think this was for the newer TJ's. Instead of going through the hassle of returning a 60# item, I filled in the holes and will drill new ones. If I wasn't using their 4 link crossmember, which aligns smoothly with this skid, I would have been way more happy with the UCF skid and had $200 more in my pocket! Genright products are quality, but way over priced IMO!

    Anyway, enough whining, here's more pics.








    And the finished GR trans crossmember~

    Finally got some stuff done today, great weather to be working on a Jeep, wish I was wheeling instead!

    Artec continues to add to their Superduty products, including the SD Ram mount pictured below. Fitment was almost perfect, I think it was designed for a 2.5" or smaller ram, mine is 2.75", so a bit of trimming was needed.

    Way happy with this kit!

    Replaced skid plate nutserts and got the 4 link crossmember tacked in.
    Removed the stock gas tank and Savvy gas tank skid to prep for stretching/Artec back half kit install. The aluminum Savvy skid will be up for sale, if interested sent me a PM.

    Have changed directions AGAIN and will be doing coil overs. Trying to do it right the first time, been down way too long to tear it up again in another year!
