Looks sweet!! Not sure if you saw my thread, but if you haven't done anything with your tie rod, I recommend upgrading to Rusty's Tie rod/drag link ($225ish) as it will compliment your rig very nicely!


Thanks for the recommendation, but I already bought an Alumi-Flex tie rod in the last County Chrysler group buy. It didn't come in time for my last ride, though, so I threw on a new stock one. When I have some spare time I'll put on the Alumi-flex...

Here are a couple of updates...

Alumi-Flex tie rod - After a few months on BlueJ, it has developed a noticable bend downward, severe enough to get some wobbling on the road. It's not from a rock collision, which should have bent it upwards, I guess it's just not tough enough to stand up to the 35" Krawlers.

33 Engineering TC Skid - Still like the skid itself, but I knew the recessed bolts were going to be trouble. I needed to take the plate off, and it took me about 3 weeks to get five of the six bolts out. They are recessed with a 5.5 hex hole. The only wrench I could find was a standard little bent hex wrench - no one seems to make a 5.5 m socket hex. All metric whole sizes, yes, but not 5.5. I've been through four hex wrenches already, good thing they're cheap. Whoever thought to use that size? The sixth bolt is still there, but I was able to swing the skid on that bolt to do what I needed to do. The other five were replaced with standard non-recessed bolts with normal tops. The bottom's not perfectly smooth anymore, but at least I know I'll be able to get the d**** skid off!
