Thank you Patrick!
That will be my plan then.
Also what is the best way to get the JeepDraw drawings?
I emailed the email listed on the Jeepdraw website last week and have not heard a response.

Best way is to send another email or send Jon a PM on this board. Maybe he took the week off!

Good!
- Axles are rebuilt, transfer case is rebuilt
- Transmission is waiting to go back together (waiting on a new case, as the first and second were duds)
- frame is primed
- Brakes are put together (just need to attach them to the axles)


My next plan is to
- finish the trans when I get the new case
- get brake drums turned
- mount axles and drums to frame
- mount trans crossmember
- finish rebuilding steering
- Finish tub

I had to get a new ring and pinion for each of my axles as they were warped and mangled.

I will remember to post more activity in this post from now on.
Thanks !
