|rdock31||Solid man! I'll be doing my 8.8 and xmember in a couple month.. So I may be pm'ing you with a few questions.|
|02-08-2014 03:45 PM|
Not at all. It didnt help that this tree was like growing into the road either, lol. You live and learn. Back on the horse now and keep moving.
|02-08-2014 03:06 PM|
|rdock31||Glad it's back and everything worked out well.|

|GoldenSahara00||So this is the reason my build changed for a while.... Was told at first it was getting totaled so I was going to be fixing it myself and heading in a trail rig direction. But I worked with insurance and got things worked out. Jeep was done today after 5 weeks since. Still gone enjoy the jeep for now and keep saving/planning the front axle build.|

First I need to get the lift properly dialed in, SYE, arms, etc. while I'm at it I'm ditching the stock skid for a 2" drop skid or a 1" skid and a lo pro depending on funds.
The crossmember idea would allow me to get to the 1" level without the lo pro and give me a chance to have an independent skid like yours.
Long run would be to drop my suspension about an inch and swap that for a body lift and net the same lift. That would allow me to raise the crossmember while keeping the drivetrain with the same geometry.
Is the crossmember made of 2x2x.25 tubing?
I guess I should start a build thread lol
|02-01-2014 05:14 PM|
|GoldenSahara00||Let me know if you have any more questions for me. What's your game plan at this point?|
|02-01-2014 07:00 AM|
|elclipo||They are yes. I have some of their stuff already on my list|
|01-31-2014 01:26 PM|
|GoldenSahara00||Lots of handy builder parts out there if you look. It's pretty reasonably priced too.|

You have that's right for the mount/bushing. I used the ruff stuff x member kit. It's just Motor mount bushings and a DOM sleeve basically and a 4 tabs for the frame mount.
|01-28-2014 09:52 AM|
|elclipo||I looked through the old one but not a whole lot of detail. I figured out the t-case mount as the busing is not needed now that the crosmemebr has bushings on either end where it mounts to the frame. What did you use there?|
|01-28-2014 09:49 AM|
|GoldenSahara00||Which are you asking for specifically. It bolts in the stock location. The stock t case mount was removed from the tcase/trans (it's 2 piece and reused the top one not the one w the bushing. That bolts into the cross member. I have more details on my old build thread I believe.|
|01-28-2014 08:56 AM|
|elclipo||Do you have any details on the belly crossmember you are running? I mean it looks pretty straightforward but what did you use for mounts, etc?|
|01-07-2014 01:17 PM|
|GoldenSahara00||The build is taking a new direction thanks to some unfortunate circumstances. I'll fill you all in in a few weeks. But it will probably end up better than before.|

|solman||The 78-79 is more popular and more $ because it perfect for leaving it full width. I had a 78-79 d60 in junkyard fresh condition (needed total rebuild) and I got $900 for it the day after I posted it on craigslist. I found a 90 d60 a few days later for $500|
