So in the front you have a stock trac bar?

And for the steering all you used is a drop pitman arm?

What a difference. I know I'd feel allot better with that shaft in the back. I'd also feel better about letting the kids drive it. I'm going to look into that next. NICE JOB. That's not a bad price for what your gaining.

Did you ever check the angle of the shaft in degrees. I'd like to know what that is, I still need to weld mine up and put the shocks in.

Also my rear spring is still sitting high. Looking at the drivers side rear shackle it's sitting forward at 7 and 1 o'clock. Do I need to fill the tank to settle it down before a find my angle. I'm not sure how critical that would be.
I would think if the angle is to much the front bearing may not get enough oil. Although the ring gear should throw enough oil around to cover that.

Now now, lets not jump to that yet lol. Actually all I have to do is put oil in the front end and grease some joints and she's ready for a test drive....then its going to the diff shop to get stuffed.

Yes stock trackbar for now, so far its served him well on the other jeep....but I am thinking about doing something different for stage 2. All stock steering and dropped arm yes.

I will slap my protractor on it tonight and take a pic for you...its not much on this one. Hmmm, you put new springs on it right? The only time I have seen a problem is when one of them is bent, or the frame has been tweeked. Dads tank is less than half full but honestly it should go to rest in the same place regardless of the fuel level. I have a 60 front in my 79 truck that has the pinion about 65 degrees and it still oils ok, but I have seen Jeremy drill and put a grease zirk right into the upper pinion bearing.

The front spring were the same way until they got some weight on them. Now there straight up and down. Finish the interior and throw some gas in the tank and I think the shackle will be fine. Plus the springs should settle a little after it's driven. The only moving that jeep has had with the new springs is me pushing it around.

Ok here's where I put my money where my mouth is




It woulda went up about a foot or so further had the flares not hit. They will prolly get changed in stage 2. On another note, the wishbone is perfect and doesnt inhibit travel in the slightest.

All depends on what you want honestly...I had a set of 6's on top a few years ago. This jeep is for my dad to drive around and do some trail riding with his buddies.

Well I am donna dig out the donor block this weekend to goto the machine shop. We decided to stroke a 4.0 and see how that works out. While the engine is getting machined, I am gonna have the tranny gone through and several mods done to it so it will hold the extra power. Next week it should go to my buddies to get the lockers installed since I only do my own on my trail rigs, and he's gonna drive this one on the street. Then I am gonna make some tube/flat flares for it that go from front to rear and incorporate sliders with steps on them, and painted to match so they blend in. After that, there will be 2-way radio, CB, and stereo...then Id say she is about done....until he gets another idea lol

The quack screwed my wrist up but I'm learning to live with it, the jeep is going great, been driving it and getting ready to wire in a computer so the transmission will shift on it's own.

Oh man I have no idea, I could do a standard soa in a weekend easily. But to do the 8.8 swap and make all the parts I did to do it would be hard to put a pencil to. Id say if I was to do it from start to finish it would be a grand prolly.
