I'm sure you will be using some jack stands to support the jeep but I figured I'd say it anyways.

I use a piece of 3/4 plywood on a floor jack to lower the tank enough to disconnect the fuel lines and electrical. 

Good progress!

Good advice Jason!! 
The tank is pretty empty as I anticipated this step ahead of time
Posi that sounds like a solid plan using the plywood. Also, I have my engine hoist rigged up to the rear of the frame and 6 ton stands as well

Stay tuned for tomorrows progres

didnt make it to the garage today...working overnight till 6am with 2 hours of sleep in the last 24 combined with incredible sleeping weather, heavy rain and overcast, made it impossible to get up and over to my dads.

however, got a nice picture sent to me from Bay State Bob showing my 14 bolt ring pattern....if he's satisfied with it than I know it must be good.

found a pic of Ruff Stuff heims I will be using on all the links

why 1.25 heims??  No real answer, just liked the idea and RuffStuff has been very easy to deal with.

Did you shave the 14 bolt or just left it alone?

IMO shave the lower lips and leave the rest complete, this could happen if you decide a cut and plate to much off. http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=972314

I ran a shaved lower lip 14 bolt for years, yes it got snagged on the smallest rock ( or stump damm Swanzy trail ) but it never broke and never let me down.

whats left of a 93YJ, 4.0/700r/241/HP60/coiled14bolt and beating it like it owes me money.

Jason, "shave the lower lips" is probably the grossest thing ive heard in a while, haha

I didn't read the rest of this thread.  but having bob set up your gears is the best choice you made.

no prob jon, I dont mind you expressing your opinion.  Some other guy, jeepgod i think, said the same thing.  He offered up a buddys negative impression but never really gave any useful info.  

If you dont mind, provide more of a review of the issues/problems/short-comings/etc, as it would be more helpful to me than just calling them stupid, useless and overpriced.

FWIW, a portion of the decision process to run ORI's was that literally everything I have read, yes read as I dont personally know anyone who has them, was very positive with the only negative being price and wait time.  I reached out to a few guys through PM on Pirate that I knew ran them and they also had nothing but positive things to say.
