I'm really digging that 1st option you have there...the metal axle kit/ disc brakes...I may just have to get one...LOL My CC-01 I have done the rear 4 link (GPM shock mount and made my own links) and the GPM alloy steering (like Noob suggested). Both have made a big diff in what it is able to handle but more mods are still needed. front CV shafts are almost a must if you raise the front of the truck and mod the knuckles for more steering. And if you are running any real weight in the wheels then I feel a GRU is needed (I wouldn't mind the rc4wd 2:1 or 3:1). For water proofing the axle and gear boxes I just packed mine with Marine Grease and it works pretty darn well.

I have the Junfac kit on my Mog. It's a nice kit, but with the skid plate it ends up making it seem a bit "low" in the center. I do like the kit, though, and for me that lowered clearance isn't a big deal because I'm using it for only trail driving, and not any serious crawling or climbing.

Thanks for all the input.
GPM Steering and GPM Univeral Drive Swing Shafts, I'm about to order and bearings as well

Regarding the GRU, I read that you need to modify or costumize your car to make this works. Im not good in modifying parts
