Just finished up my Jam 2013 check list, looks a little something like this:
February -Install front Drive shaft -Fenders (Prep, paint, install) -Front shocks (add a little more to the top of the tower) <- Do when Fenders are off -Cut sway bars down (made for a 4" lift) -Spring Retainers -Trim a few spots for more droop
March -Remove Gas tank -Gas tank tuck -Move upper rear coil buckets to take the nasty bend out of my springs and to level out the Jeep -Trim rear track bar bracket on the axle to allow for a little more droop -Spring retainers -Outboard rear shocks -Cut sway bar down
April -Belly up
May -Recondition trailer for Jam, Needs a lot of love it's an old tent trailer converted to utility, needs inspection and registration plus some other work. I'd like to use it to haul my tires down and just be able to huck everything into it Sunday and leave not having to worry about getting it all back into the Jeep. Hoping to make it able to fit a truck cap from an s10 to keep things dry, we'll see.
-Wheels spacers 1.5" rear 1" front
Plus all the other miscellaneous things that will pop up in that time span. I am pumped though!!!!!

I finally dropped the drive shaft off with Aaron who is going to take it to be re-tubed at McLellan's Machine Shop!!! no more climbing under there to reconnect it and disconnect it!
I was thinking about having it re tubed with something with a thicker wall, but then I got to thinking, If I do that then it creates a weaker spot somewhere, rather than bending the tube again I'd likely break something else or even crack my t-case. So I think it'd rather have to re tube if it ever bends again then to replace a transfer case. Tell me if my logic is flawed.....

It's a friggin' miracle!!! Peck's and Alan Justason save the day!!
Timely and professional and a price that couldn't be beat locally, I was even able to upgrade the tube to DOM thicker wall tubing for less money than it would have been to replace it with the original thinner wall.
