I've always said if I can walk across it I can weld it, but there comes a time when too much gap is just that

Would your steering clear with just a drop Pittman arm?

Looking nice. That is a very clean YJ and you're doing an awesome job on the fabrication. Those Moabs look good on a YJ too.

I have to get a spring over done on my yj asap now. Also nice to see how the moabs look on a yj ive been wanting a set of those. For now my rims the way they are will do though. And If you could do you think you can give good detail about lining up the perches and setting the right pinion angle on the rear 8.8 Thats the only part of the SOA that I really would have trouble with. The front end on the Dana 30 is simple enough to figure out where to set the perches the way you described.

Thanks guys....dad was right, the moabs do look great on there I think too.

Well since he's gonna keep this one, I think we are gonna put a rubi case in it, but I'm not sure just yet....he's gonna let me know tomorrow. I just don't wanna have to build the rear driveshaft twice yanno

What transmission? AX-5? I never even thought about someone putting a 241 in a YJ. Huh.

has to be ax15. ax5 is 21 spline. They may sell a 21 spline input for the 241, I got one for my d300.

Sure, why don't you take a pic of yours so I know exactly what you are wanting me to measure.....now, it might be a few days since the jeep is sitting higher in the front and won't go back down until I have the rearend up in it.

ok I will get one when she is back on the ground for you...as far as the HD steering goes I cannot answer that because I have never used it. If it gets to that point I make my own draglinks and tie rods in house instead of forking out that money for mass made stuff

ya im probably gonna leave the stock one on and keep the HD as a spare, ive ripped the tie rod off the passenger side twice already ripping all the threads out. and the stock one has held up great soo it will most likely be my back up. Will i have any problems running SOA in the front and regular in the back??? the dana 44 im buying has axle over and i can have my ways of makeing it level front and back. Eventually i might do axle over in the back when i get my ford 9

well i have rediculously huge shackles in the front that give me around 4 inchs of lift, so i was thinking i would put those on the back and then put stock shakles in the front

Well as it sits right now I got it ready to go in the jeep in about 15 minutes. Just took off the swaybar and ground down the rust/paint where the perches go. If you get perches like mine you will spend about 20 minutes grinding them to fit. That's about all I have done so far, I am waiting on some plates and ubolts to mock everything up.

With the 8:8 and disc brakes do you have to mod the e-brake cables or the brake lines??? Are yyou leaving the original booster and those things under the hood??

I've looked at the ebrake stuff and I have an idea about how to make it work and I will post it when I know it will work for sure. I'm prolly not gonna change the booster until I do stage 2 of the build, but I'm sure I will change it to a MP Brakes one like I usually do.
