(07/07/15) It has been quite some time since I updated this thread, but to be honest, not much has been going on with it. I have done some regular maintenance, but really just have been enjoying it whenever we can.
I did finally find a set of axles that had 4.56 gears in it, but were sprung over and had electric lockers in them, so I didn't want to go that route, but the price was right, so I grabbed them, and some sprung under housings and am now starting to convert the best of the 2 sets into one axles setup and will install the lockers and go from there.

(07/10/15) I am continuing the tear down the donor axle as I continue to work on painting the UK Jeep project. I have gotten a few hours here and there, so it is moving along. I need to figure out how to tell if they are chromoly shafts or not... they are quite sharp on the splines, so I know they are new, just not sure how to tell the brand.

(07/16/15) I will be jumping back on the reassembly of the UK Jeep, so the axles will sit for a bit. I have the locker in place, using a lube locker gasket, so we will see how that goes and the new(used) chromoly shaftw are in place. I have to drill the knuckles for the tie rod flip and I have to add the brakes. Then I have to do the rear axle setup. Then buy a Rubicon Express 4.5 kit... the list is endless!!!

(02/12/16) I wanted to update a little bit on the project. It received a new Rubicon Express 4.5" lift kit with the YJ conversion up front. It came out great, but I didn't have the rear axle done yet with the 4.56 gears, so I have to do that soon and then swap it out. The hard part was the springs and removing all of the parts/pieces. Swapping axles now will not be hard. I will also update the brakes I think as well.

All in all, we just drive the Jeep in the woods and have a great time with it.

Check back soon for updates.
