    sold some old parts and DVDs I didnt need and decided I'd get myself a few lil things for my truck that I've wanted for a while.. check it out.

    [​IMG]

    first up, spring plates from JKW. These things are beef. 3/4" thick solid steel. I didn't need the anti-sway bar attachment point that JKW offers with their standard plate, but I did want them drilled so I could relocate my axle 1". Steven is great to deal with and he got my plates shipped out really quick in spite of their custom requirements. I like the attention to detail also... lots of parts you get from online fabricators tend to need a little finishing work with files/grinders etc but not these plates, all the corners are nice and smoothed out. Cleaning up burrs and stuff really isnt that big a deal... but it just goes to show how JKW ships a well made quality product regardless of the size of the order (and mine wasnt that big!).

    [​IMG]

    next we have the High Angle Driveline np205 ebrake kit. My ebrake hasnt been functional since I did the ff14b axle swap many moons ago. This bad boy will solve that problem. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [​IMG]

    last, but certainly not least, we have my new ff14b diff cover. I have been running the stock cover with no diff guard for quite a while. Its prolly just pure dumb luck that I never peeled the cover off or got a hole bashed through it. A while back someone on Pirate said they ordered a diff cover from a new company called Great Lakes Offroad. The same guy sells covers on ebay... always has this pic along with em...

    [​IMG]

    thats some beef! They are 1/2" thick steel on the mounting flange and single-piece 1/4" thick steel on the rest of the cover. Whats more, if you bust the cover, the guy offers a no BS "you break it, we replace it" guarentee. All this for $85 a cover. nice!

    anyway, Im gonna eventually post pics of this stuff installed on my rig in webshots... who knows, maybe a write-up on the HAD brake kit (since it comes with no instructions at all!). /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    It only works with the newer version of the HAD output flange... thankfully I always planned on doing this mod so when I got the f/r HADs I got the proper flange to work with the e-brake. Next thing ya know, I won the month HAD drawing and I was on my way. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Very nice! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just got my zero-rates made by Steven @ JKW in the other day and they are a work of art! I had them machined for 4 degree tapers, but with the thinnest part of the block right at 1" so it stays a true 1" zero-rate. Most shops just machine a stock of 1" steel and do the tapers from there. What you end up with is a block that the thickest part is 1" and the thinnest part can get down to 1/2", 5/8" or so. I wanted a true 1" and got it. Steven is a great guy to work with and I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    unless you won a HAD monthly drawing, the brake kit is gonna be a bit more than $74. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
