Ditched the tiny bolt on style bracket for these from ballistic fab they push the axle back 3 inches and down 2 thus making the overall lift 7.5". That's actually a little too much but gives me the ability to use shorter springs that will give the link bars a better angle

This is the previous owners rear setup I think its cherokee springs not what I what but it will help with $$ to link the front first then worry about the rear later

Getting the electronics together to install ignition fuel injection computer harnesses and switch panel leaving provisions for kc's as headlights a winch backup lights and a 3000 watt inverter for camping or tools. The 200 amp alternator will handle just about anything I need.

Finally have the rest of my rebuild parts for the th400 tci ultimate master rebuild 34 sprag element billet input shaft and billet aluminum forward drum. Also got a fluidyne trans cooler since I'm using a 3500 stall. A friend uses this same cooler in his top sportsman car so it should be plenty for the jeep.

picked up the dana 60 out of a 86 F350 tow truck been tearing into it the past few days have to convert it to single wheel hubs and fully rebuild

so far have new 4.10 gear set installed with new bearings and seals. Pulled spindles and knuckles to blast and powdercoat ordering rcv performance axle shafts soon

pulled the 97 body off to swap the 03 on to this chassis

moving along nice did the mounts today too dark for more picks but the original 6 body mounts on the outer frame rails had to come off but the tj frame mounts were almost perfect just had to cut them off the tj frame and bolt up to the tub then weld up

also picked up a nice tuffy center console for $100 that way i can lock the $2000 efi computer in it cant have anybody running away with that

Ditched the msd off-road for the new hvc setup times 2 that way I can switch between systems on the fly. Msd techs told me there not for the street since they make so much more power causing more heat in the boxes. I'm coming up with a way to mount the second box near the other one and a fan setup to prevent overheating.

After seeing how much room there is above the tire I'm going to order a set of full armor fenders with 6" flares to fix the mess of a comp cut the previous owner did.

With a torch and some leverage I bent a set of hooked super comps about an inch to fit in-between the frame rails the headers were intended for a Chevy pickup I had them on this motor in my 99 tahoe.

Computers in fired up and soft tuned for the new throttle body since the old one didn't have an idle air control sensor now it idles much better and has a more streetable throttle response
