Il post pics tomorrow.
Got any pictures of this?

88lsxyj Will the joints handle the angle? It's in the mid 20 degs at ride height. I had to clearance a Chevy front drive shaft to use in rear. But i didn't take it apart and bevel the cup around the centering ball. Then I busted a ujoint which let the shaft flop around and it busted the centering cup.

My next shaft I will disassemble and bevel the insides too.

Ibuildembig Chuck the cvs for bigger standard joints and it will fix it

88lsxyj Thanks! I am seriously contemplating taking a couple inches of lift off and a comp cut in the rear and moving the rear axle back about 6" mainly just to help drive line angles. It's hard on cv joints.

Although the stretch may be enough alone.

I'm just scared of cutting the rear and relocating the gas filler.

SirGeorgeKillian That is a sweet looking set up.
06-17-2012 09:47 AM
bigbuckd That is one monster JEEP. Couldn't amagine riding on 44's in a jeep. been on 42's on a Chevy. That was up there. Keep up the posting looks great.
06-13-2012 04:57 PM
88lsxyj Sweet! I don't have to pull tranny or tcase!! Fixed everything in the jeep. Now all I need to do is install axles when i get them.
06-12-2012 11:13 PM
88lsxyj Not yet. I'm going to do some vids ASAP after axle install!
06-12-2012 10:56 PM
chimera555 I like it! Got any action video???
06-12-2012 12:17 PM
88lsxyj I have none right now. I should get my 3/4 ton axles this weekend if the guy don't lazy out on me.

Then i have to install them and replace the seals in my tranny/tcase before i take her out again.

It will have new black 15x14 Bart super trucker wheels on it next time it's on the road. Mandatory going from 6 lug to 8 lug

2010JK Cool build. Let's see some action shots
06-11-2012 09:22 PM
88lsxyj No problem! There will be more! Swapping in Dana 44 and 10.5" 14bolt in a week or so. Also if my dual carb setup sells soon I'm going efi. And eventually a turbo
06-11-2012 09:12 PM

thanks for your time posting up these pics. and info....

06-11-2012 01:04 PM
88lsxyj Sweet!
06-11-2012 12:39 PM
Ibuildembig Ill keep you posted on what I come up with, should work for yours too
06-11-2012 12:13 PM
88lsxyj My buddy and I have been looking into it also. He said my tranny is the tightest feeling sm465 he ever seen.
06-11-2012 12:09 PM
Ibuildembig Same here, I am working on a super short throw shifter for my 435
06-11-2012 12:05 PM
88lsxyj Haha. My jeep weighs 3950 without me as it sets with the 10bolt front and 12bolt rear. It just about pulls the tires from a roll in first haha.

I have a granny 4 speed and it's hard to speed shift. But once I get the dana 44 and 14 bolt installed with 4.10s il be launching on people.

Later on i want to extend the wheel base with a comp cut rear body and put a auto in it with 3000 or so stall. My main use is going to be muddin and sand bill climbs.
06-11-2012 11:59 AM
Ibuildembig LOL thats funny cause I have a new SS camero in my sights for when mines done
06-11-2012 11:56 AM
88lsxyj I bought a ford tcase so I could steal the output shaft and cover to put on my Chevy 205. I did all the work myself.

The carbs are 500 cfm and progressive throttle. I did some pretty steep hill climbs last week getting into and out of the river and it never missed a lick.

Throttle response is instant and makes tons of power. Enough to scare the daylights out of a new 5.0 mustang through two gears from a red light one night. Haha.

Ibuildembig Hey I just saw this thread! Looks good, but I do have a couple of questions for ya. You said up top you got a Ford tcase and were going to have it modified for a CV shaft? That should have been just a yoke change, I hope they didnt stick it to you. The other thing is that looks like alot of carburation and Im curious how it does on the hills.
06-11-2012 08:39 AM
88lsxyj :-( awww man. Lol. Thanks for the comments.

Actually the finger didn't come out as good as hoped. I lost control in the tip. It won't straighten out, and won't bend all the way. Plus i have one nasty scar left from the surgery along with a large hospital bill. Basicly a 1500 dollar zigzag scar lol.

An yes, I'm have to get a better pic that one wasn't very flattering hahaha
06-11-2012 02:07 AM
00tj2 Awesome build...hope the finger is ok....And yes, you do look fat in that picture...
06-11-2012 02:01 AM
88lsxyj Thanks. The majority of my driving will be off road in the red river. So water crossings and deep mud/ruts are a norm here. Will see very little if any rocks in its life, but many mud bogs and deep holes. That's why i have the lift and 44s also mounted the drivetrain as high As possible in the chassis to keep it from flooding out.
