I don't hate flare-less. But the the flares make the jeep look complete.


I agree, having fender flares takes a jeep from "work in progress" to "ready to wheel" in my mind.

Ten Factory Chromoly shafts came in today. Bearings are getting pressed on Thursday. Big thanks to Tim! Hopefully I won't break these

If you  pop these it's time for more lugs  ;D

Not bad at all. Little twisted but the worst part is the bent shaft. Maybe possible to put it in a press and bend it back enough to be used as a spare?

As cheap as stock shafts are I would recycle that one.

Shafts are just about wrapped up. I stripped a stud on the drivers side when pressing them fully in (picture shows half in), so that'll be finished tonight once the parts store gets the stud. Come to find out that the studs are from an early 80s escort. That was fun to track down! Waiting on my corners to come back to me, I let a friend borrow them to build his own. Once those come back, it'll be finished enough to drive it again...
