Do you have a body lift on the smurf?

You going to use a clocking ring (usually 3/8 thick), should have did that before ordering a driveshaft? I don't know if you swapped in that ax15 yet, but they can only be clocked so far and that's usually the wrangler clocking pattern anyway.

Did you have to alter the exhaust at all?

not really related, but why would one want the pic related on SUA suspension? It would lower the vehicle and limit flex and GC? Why?

I had the standard SUA swap and kept getting hung up on the U-bolt ends/nuts and spring plates. This just moves those to the top of the axle but has the bolts run underneath. No height difference between either SUA kits I used but now I don't get hung up as easy.

Ah, I see. I havent ever heard of anybody getting their bolt ends hung up, but I can see how they could if you were wheeling hard.

Those are bad ass!! That's on my list of upgrades. I was scraping all over my already long u bolts on the Rubicon. At $75-80 for them you can't beat it.

I have my u bolts trimmed to a few threads past the nut and still manage to find them just about every time I'm in the rocks. They like small stumps too. That flip kit looks great for the price.

I really wish I had wheeling like that around me with nice big smooth rock. All my places are full of smaller rocks that cause body damage, and get you hung up on. Not my jeep but just a photo to give you an idea what my trails are like

Oh we have trails like that too , on this trail if you screw up you usually get drug up or down the ledge on your side then righted. Its a waterfall with 3 ledges the first then 2nd and your front and rear tires hit the 3rd at thr same time and its polished granite so it either is slick as heck or grippy

I have not updated this in awhile. The timing chain jumped in the yj a few weeks back , Im hoping to have it back up and running in the next few weeks.

I have also started to collect parts for a 1ton swap. I have a 10.5" ribg gear srw 14bolt full float axle for the rear already and have found a 79 king pin d60 that I am trying to agree on a fair price. I will be going full width. With 17" beadlocks. I am currently thinking about waggy springs front and rear. Or front waggys and rear xj with an extra reversed main added. With a 38-40" tire.

Dude that's crazy- I'm planning the same thing.
Shaved 14b and d60 (cucv axles, getting them real cheap) with waggy front/xj rear springs, soa.
Been cramming Pirate threads on the wheelbase stretch for months.
Was thinking 37's for the first year or so while it's still a daily driver.
Also looking hard at a drivetrain swap to Lm7 with either a 4L40 or nv4500. The rear stretch should let the 4500 fit nicely...

Good luck with your build, I'll be keeping tabs for sure.

I have a buddy who just finished his yj soa on waggy springs front and rear I really like the stance and fact i wont need to change armor so i am leaning towards that route. Lately I've been thinking about a 700r4 swap too with a artkar winters shifter and rockcrawler reverse pattern

Yeah the stance is killer. Low and wide with tons of flex.
This pic is where my long term sights are set...
Pretty sure it's 2.5" lift waggy spring in front.

Out of curiosity why the 700r4 over the 4L60e?

Yeah the stance is killer. Low and wide with tons of flex.
This pic is where my long term sights are set...
Pretty sure it's 2.5" lift waggy spring in front.

Out of curiosity why the 700r4 over the 4L60e?
Self contained no need for a computer, if go sbc in future itll prob get a offroad carb also or fitech self learning efi

If you don't spend a lot of time on the highway, I suggest thinking about a th400 over the 700r4. I've spent way to much money building a reliable offroad 700r4 but I need the overdrive in California for freeways.

Awesome, finding the rear is the easy part though... Any luck finding what you're going to run up front? Front dana 60's are usually for sale in my area for $1500, making a new currie axle more and more appealing haha. I have a swr 14 bolt I've been thinking about, but the clearance under it is terrible and it is a little wider than I'd like. Are you going to shave it?
