Pile of wires

Irongrave front axle plans.

Artech truss and link tabs, Reid knuckles, 35 spline stubs with drive slugs. not sure one a locker for the front yet but it will get 5:13 or lower gears.

Irongrave the nice thing about the saws is they are nice and compact when compressed

daddyjeep I am loving your build plan... almost exactly the same as mine. I just got my Ford 9" and HP D44 today instead of the 60's like yours. I am also looking at the 14 SAW air shocks and building a custom Highline set up. You will have to check out my Photoshop job of mine on my build thread. When we get done we will have to hook up and go wheeling since we are about 60 miles apart.

Irongrave not a big update still in the part gathering phase but I did throw the 60 under it on jack stands to get some layout ides. With the 4 banger I should be able to run a 4 link front with out running into the motor using 10* angled lowers abd 25* angled uppers for the frame side link mounts.

Irongrave played around a little in photoshop and came up with a Highlined metal cloak concept. I'd move the metal cloaks up 2 inches, most likely lose the inner cloak inner fenders for shock mounting and such. I would also remove the warn sliders and do a mini boat side.

Irongrave Slowed down the last few weeks getting the house ready for thanksgiving but I did get the new decal on the tailgate today. Its from another forum I moderate on and its become a joke with a few of the guys I wheel with because I have a hat with the same logo.

Irongrave Traded my beadlock wheels for 14 cartage style joins

10-20-2012 06:54 PM
Irongrave got my Dana 300 to AX5 adapter kit ordered. hopefully I'll get that next week so I can mock up the t-case and cut the floor. Goal flat 19-21 inch belly no body lift

Irongrave rear 60 hung on a set of 2in springs and 1 inch lift currie boomerang shackles.

front 60 getting cleaned up a little. going to go to 35 spline outers with drive slugs. Then add a truss and a barnes4wd 3 link kit with Saw 14in travel 2.5 air shocks

overthehillsahara Looks like a nice space to work in and it looks like your making good progress on the rig or is that an "Illusion of progress"

The cage is from AtoZ fab. They did the weld up on it as well.

Irongrave thank you

Zombiekiller i love the way those rims look with the red beadlocks. looking good keep us updated!
07-15-2012 09:51 AM
Irongrave other then finishing up the beadlocks havent done much with the YJ this spring and summer

however big plans are in the works. my fiancee and I should close on our house in Erie PA mid August. That means the YJ will finally have a place inside where I can start to really address the things I dont like about the set up. The 5in BDS springs will be removed and replaced with 2in lift springs and I'll get correct length shocks.
