|Projectgrizz93||Looks like a familiar fender cut I like the wording comp cut haha|

Trimming the back
Cutting the rear, I think they call it a comp cut. Still have to cut the bumper.

|Scooby88||Got one side done, not sure how I'm going to finish the rear. I also got the gas tank pulled out last night, I thought it would be a pain being it had about a half tank of gas but it was pretty easy.|

Here how it sets today
I'm trimming the rear bumper and fenders today.

The plan is to get things around to slide the 14 under the rear, being it's welded makes it a little difficult.
I'm tired of updating on my phone, do I buy a new laptop or the sye?

|Projectgrizz93||Ha that's why I built a paint booth around mine it doesn't fit in the garage anymore|

|Scooby88||Tonight I got some rollers for the 14 bolt. It's not looking good. The rollers are 33's and with the f150 springs are looking like I will have to drop the windshield and remove the roll bar to get it out of the garage.|

|langwilliams||wow when you buy a welder you don't play around. I got a Lincoln 135 off craigslist for $175.|

Well I bought one today. Hard bullet to swallow but I'm at the point I really need it and I'm tired of borrowing one.
Was planning on gathering more parts this weekend but plans changed and we are heading north to see my mother for the weekend.

|freonburn||Sounds like a great idea. I can't wait to see how those axles look under your YJ|

Thanks grizz, helps a lot.
I'm thinking I'm gonna make the new dash mold, my idea is to give the first one away just to get reviews. What do you guys think?

|Projectgrizz93||Lemme know if you can see them|

Leaf spring mock up
This is what I'm thinking on the front and rear. The shackle is a +1.5". It's just hanging there without the bushings.

I'd say materials plus shipping and another 50-75 up to 125 based on how hard it is to do for you. My suggestion for a mod would be to include a spot under the gauges to install a CB or maybe a toggle switch bank to hook up all electronics used in the vehicle

I've really thought about making another mold to make dashes. I've had a few requests. I would change a couple of things on it but any requests or ideas would be considered.
Just to throw this out there....what would you guys be willing to spend on one? I'm not out to get rich....just have to be worth my time.
Do you have a build thread or any pictures of the f150 springs installed? I have ideas but if how you did it works I'd love to see.
|09-24-2014 02:00 PM|
Mine is stretched with f-150 springs full width axles you can clear any tire you want.
Easily the best build I've read you make us feel like were right in the shop can't wait to see it finished also would love to get a dash planned out
|09-23-2014 07:12 PM|
The 14 bolt is all cleaned up. Had the wife convinced I needed a plasma cutter, as I thought about it....most of the cutting is done.
I'm at the welding point and I've been borrowing the Miller from work which is sweet but....I changed my mind and I'm looking at the Miller 211 mig welder to buy.
Anyone have this welder? Oh, I get a miller, she gets a new couch I get to use both.

14 Bolt cleaned up
Sandblasted the 14, still have to cut off the stock leaf spring perches. Went to the u-pick n pull and got 2 leaf springs off an '97 F150. $77.50, I was lucky that the box was off.
|09-17-2014 07:54 PM|
Sorry for the past posts. Trying to help out a Jeeper.
Sold the Dana 30/35 axles tonight, that should cover the cost of the F150 springs for the build. Have a guy coming tomorrow night to buy the rims and tires that were on it.
Looking for some rollers for the 14 bolt, this thing is a Beast.

|Scooby88||Got some of the stock leaf spring mounts cut off tonight. Found some F150 springs at a local u-pick for $33 each.|
