rykemc Looking good sir. Can't wait to start putting mine back together again.
11-02-2012 02:51 PM
airspeed247 Got everything back together and greased up finally. Used the hammer method to get the u joints done and lubed it all up good and put it back together. Just test drove it and I'm happy to have rear wheel drive again. Front wheel only sucks.
Probably going to get a spare slip yoke and u joints for in the future. Once again, highly recommend using the drivetrain shop link posted above for any drivetrain parts.

airspeed247 ^ thanks, I appreciate it. It's a lot of fun, more so when your working in things that aren't broken but fun none the less.

Alright perfect that's what I was thinking too

airspeed247 I am having the WORST time ever trying to separate this slip yoke from the shaft. It's about halfway out and just seazed in there. I broke my rubber mallet and have torched and pb blasted the hell out of it but it's coming out millimeters at a time extremely slowly. Anyone have any tips. I'm all blistered up from a "simple" project. Lol

Carralo1 Great build man, I've been following it from the beginning it's looking sick. What'd you do for the center bolt/spacer on your shackles, Any dimensions? I got the same ones To put on after I finish up my frame

HIGHLY recommend them for parts. They got mine shipped to me next day when I paid ups ground

GREAT company and prices. Give them a call after you place your order and they will hook you up with the fastest shipping available.

airspeed247 I appreciate it. I ordered the u joint and slip yoke today from northern driveshaft.
For reference:
1-0153 U joint part number
2-3-8001KX Slip yoke part number

npe3484 You can seperate the shaft at the splines and replace it with a portion of a stock CV shaft.

airspeed247 Finally got to really get the jeep out and test it's abilities. Really happy with the weekend but it ended short with a broken driveshaft. Had to limp 230 miles back home in front wheel drive. Super sketchy as it pulled hard left and right with acceleration and deceleration.



Attachment 173088

Anyone know if I can just get that bottom half of the shaft replaced or do I have to replace the whole thing?

@ springs,I'm hoping the same works for myself. Just need the extra money now for it.

I was talking to a TJ owner the other day who had the 2". He said the guys charged him $400 for the kit and installation... I was thinking to myself. Damn, I'm in the wrong business.. Lol
You said it. Work on jeeps make money sounds like the life for me!

Looks good man.

Springsblueyj Looking good. After the body lift you should be fine with rubbing. I can't get mine to rub under full flex. Shackles look good.

airspeed247 Here's some tucking of the 35's. Almost have it in there but the 2" body lift is like to get and maybe a little longer bump stop should do the trick. Definitely works much better with the fender trimmed though. I'm happy with that.
10-12-2012 05:04 PM
airspeed247 Removed the side fenders and step to give it a cleaner look. I'm going to work on putting some angle iron there in its place and make a step soon. For now I just primered it though. Looks cleaner for sure.

airspeed247 Hoping to fix my headlight problem I went ahead and took the switch out and cleaned all the terminals as well as the headlight connections themselves. It was pretty dirty so I'm glad I did.

Attachment 168372

I'll see if it fixed it tonight, otherwise I'll take it apart again and check out the heat connections as mentioned above.
10-12-2012 01:42 PM
Springsblueyj I have a 2" body lift. I personally like it. My bro has a 3" and I thinks it's a bit much.
10-12-2012 12:58 PM
airspeed247 Shackles came in and very nice product. I recommend them to all. Especially for the price and quality.

Rear installed with front going in today. Pictures to come!
10-08-2012 01:13 PM
airspeed247 Alright, I need you guy's assistance please.

I am pretty set on getting a 2" body lift, mainly because I feel like paying bascially $100 for just 1" isn't worth the money to me. With 2" at least I feel like I am getting something. I know 3" is WAY to much and it looks goofy in my opinion and nearly everyone mentions the 1 1/4" being perfect.

I just need a bit more clearance to flex. I have the 4" pro comp leafs and basically have the shackle lift (replacing the shackles this week with Booms though) and I figure body is the last thing I can do.

Anyone have the 2" and regret it? I plan on removing the factory bushings and just put in the new pucks so its probably going to be 1 3/4" anyways but want to here if anyone has regrets? Thanks

bigbuckd Nice looking Jeep. Keep it up.

Almighty90 You'll love them very solid piece.

airspeed247 Just ordered a set of these boomerang shackles. Read really good reviews on them and for $50? Sounds great. I'll post more info when I get them and instal them.

airspeed247 When I get the money I'm going to toss some new 35" KM2's on there but these will do for a while.

Next on the list is new shackles and small body lift.
