I did it to mine, and it took me about 4-6 hours per side to complete the repair.
hmmmm sounds like i should kill 2 birds with one stone. Time to order that rear cross member!

Dropping the tank would be the safe thing to do...

bruceandjo95yj just bought this fellas kit off eBay a few weeks ago....
Even ALL the way up here in Canada with customs and that crap,it only took just over a week to get here and was like a hundred bucks with shipping,

Surfinglbi23 Nice repair, super clean. Makes you not as scared of rusted out jeeps thats for sure. There are some DEALS on rusted out ones. Like literally half of what a clean one costs ... big savings if you can weld in repair kits

Fishnic is it possible to get just the pattern for the steel shapes?

jeepjohnson Good deal, but it must have cost more than $40 if you needed to add front shackles.
05-01-2011 07:01 AM
jakec i put lift shackles up front also.i was worried it would cause some vibration but it didnt. i was ready to drop the front spring hanger on the rear springs if it did vibrate but it didnt need it. it didnt change the pinion angle as much as i thought it would. i have 3 in lift springs on it also.

Then what did you do to the front to level the Jeep out?
Also, when you do that it's just like adding a really long shackle, which only lifts the rear side of the spring and might cause driveline vibration...

I'm not sure I understand, are you saying to cut them and only use what is needed to cover the rust? These were made to reinforce the whole back section, no need to cut rust or no rust.
03-08-2011 12:28 AM
duaneduanet I am not sure of the place I found them. At the time I think it was the only place I could find them. Any one should do good. To save some headache use only as much as you need.
