Haha. My jeep weighs 3950 without me as it sets with the 10bolt front and 12bolt rear. It just about pulls the tires from a roll in first haha.

I have a granny 4 speed and it's hard to speed shift. But once I get the dana 44 and 14 bolt installed with 4.10s il be launching on people.

Later on i want to extend the wheel base with a comp cut rear body and put a auto in it with 3000 or so stall. My main use is going to be muddin and sand bill climbs.

Thanks! I am seriously contemplating taking a couple inches of lift off and a comp cut in the rear and moving the rear axle back about 6" mainly just to help drive line angles. It's hard on cv joints.

Although the stretch may be enough alone.

I'm just scared of cutting the rear and relocating the gas filler.

Will the joints handle the angle? It's in the mid 20 degs at ride height. I had to clearance a Chevy front drive shaft to use in rear. But i didn't take it apart and bevel the cup around the centering ball. Then I busted a ujoint which let the shaft flop around and it busted the centering cup.

My next shaft I will disassemble and bevel the insides too.

I just started a comp cut in the rear today and will be cutting spring hangers off and relocating axle 7-7.5" to the rear.

Got the drivers side cut and will cut passenger side tomorrow.

That will help driveline angles a lot and also help stability.

Il post pics tomorrow.

I don't think I'll ever mod mine to that point. But that is one awesome piece of machinery you got there. Nice work
