Got the new ram mount in the mail, got it all welded up and mounted. This axle is going to be heavy but it will be unkillable!

So i Couldnt figure out how to make my Tub roll into the rear flush. I ended up Doveing it, Cut a triangal section of the floor out all the way to the floor pan and Putting a sight bend into it. It now mounts straight into he roll bar. Will need soem body work to get it smooth b4 paint.
New agnle on front coils. Also extended front out about 5 inches for a 114" ws
Started on my Rear pannels

Few updates. The skeliton of a new skid/transmount/lower link mount.
Got some custom beadlocks designed. THis is a logo my brother made a long time ago, we kinda always use it on our motorcycle helms nd stuff like that.
New fuel cell
Got my new Tsl sx 42x15x15
The lugs look different to me. When did they start grooving out the center lugs and Sipping the ousters? I Like it a lot!

Was welding a mount for my fuel cell, And was being careless, ended up igniting fumes inside of it, and Toasting my legs. So i now am sitting here with 2nd degree burns from my ankle to my knee caps. So all the skin was removed.

|yjJEEPyj||Starting to Warm Up outside. About 2 start my Work on my Jeep again for the Spring. Goals Are, Finish rear, New tires. Maybe a rear Winch. Beaf entire Cage.|
|01-14-2014 03:08 PM|
I know your jeep has come a long long way since what im about to ask you about but i was wondering if you had any other pictures of the mount you made for the hi-lift jack on the tire carrier

That gold bar under the oil pan would come in contact with the upper triangulated at full bump. Had to go 3 link. And cant lower my rig5 inches cuz right now I got 6.5 inches of up travel. And at full bump my RAM is about into my radiator.. so I will just make up some new Trac bar mounts. Hopefully that will fix that axle swing.
|09-25-2013 07:04 PM|
|yjJEEPyj||The issue with the upper triangulate 4 is the cradle for my sbc350. Thats what I was originally going to go with.|
|09-25-2013 07:02 PM|
|Norcal_Chris||Or just take and make another upper bracket for the pass side. Cut the bracket for the upper off the axle and just run a upper triagulated 4 and ditch the panhard.|
|09-25-2013 07:00 PM|
Somethin like this axle side.
|09-25-2013 06:56 PM|
Ahh nevermind. From the other pics it looked like yoir upper was attached way out on the frame.
Little low in seperation, but that is ok.
Yoir panhard is the biggest issue. Either you take a drop yoir jeep 5 inches or make an axle side panhard tower a few inches taller, and a frame side panhard mount a few inches lower. You need to get that panhard flat at ride height
|09-25-2013 06:04 PM|
Alright Chris, Here is all the pics i just took. School me in 3 link. I did all my research in 4 link.. And then when 4 link didn't fit front i kinda just looked at a few pics and built it. Haha! dint really research like i should have. was under a deadline to get to a jeep event.
I have a Double car CV shaft. As my axle flexes up and down The Pinion stays pointed directly at the Tcase so thats all good. Main thing i hate is.. How When the passenger side tire is stuffed and the pass tire is max drop the axle shifts tward the driverside like a good 6-8 inches. Witch puts my driver tire out past my fender and the pass like under my frame.
Tell me what to fix. I got like another 20 ft of 1" 3/4 by 1/4 thick Dom tube.

These fenders were very easy to make. Did it in a after noon. They use your old fender as a base to weld these on to. Guess you could bolt on if you wanted. Maybe cost me 50$ in metal. I can get measurements if you need them. MAde from 1/4 inch steal diamond plate. Sturdy enough to stand on while working on your engine or what ever.
Each side is made from 3 peaces of Steal. Look close to see where they are welded together.
underneath you can see where i cut the old fenders out. So it was just a Flat peace sticking out from The hood.
Drug this pic out from 2 year ago. My brother cutting off the parts of the fenders.
Look at the Duck tape and see what areas were cut.
this is how I originally made them but hated it. This is how you want your fender to look. Minis the tube of course. From here you have a place to attach eh New steal to.
This is how to place the top peace to the fender. notice how it is welded to the Lip of the hood holder. From the grill all the way to were the mud flap goes vertical down.
You dont have to wled evry inch. Just spot welds will be fine.
Here you can see the only spot the Side PEace and the top plate hit is in the very corrner, The Top plate is welded to the Mud flap that goes down vertical, that mud flap also is welded to the side plate.
All you do underneith is kinda weld it in areas to connect it to the original Fender
