Triple Nickle Build

I have decided to showcase a little bit of my build so far. I started out with a very capable TJ with:
HP D30 W/ RCV
D44
4" lift
36" Iroks
Barnes 2" Transfercase Skid
And all the other normal stuff

I am going to be putting D60's front and rear, 3 link the front(with track bar) and double triangulating the rear. At this time I will be pushing the front forward prob 3-4" and the rear 7"+. Running 39.5" Iroks.

I will be doing a custom long/mid arm using Metal Cloak Duroflex joints. I really like the fact they are rubber, so if the do wear rebuilding is a breeze. Not to mention they have 34 degrees of misalignment.

Two major Items I haven't decided on yet are:
Air shocks or ORI
Fuel Tank

Obviously the ORI's are a no brainer, its just a funds decision. Since they are 2x the cost. Then I need to decide what I am going to do for a fuel tank. Get a custom cell made, or do a partially under the jeep and partially inside with a cover.

I will try to update this as the build progresses. Yesterday I completed grinding all the mounts off. So I am ready to start the fabbing!

The donor rig

Few pictures of the donor rig. I picked this up super cheap, the best part is its already geared to 5:13! But later on I will be going to 5:86. It has had a fun life! I am selling the motor, t case, and tranny and they rest will be pretty much free. It has the 5.9l (v8) and NV4500.
