The local salvage yard has a 8.8 there with the disc brakes for $202 plus tax. I think I will go on Monday and get that.

Thanks!


A question here: I need to be able to get this rig in and out of my 7/minus foot high garage door after its built. I am thinking with the current planned drive-train right now I will start with 35's. Now with that being said, I want as much suspension travel as possible in case of a upgrade way down the road to a bigger and better axles and 40's.....way down the road! Anyhow, I only want to spend this suspension money once. Going with the 3 and 4 link GenRight system Front and Rear can I get the 14" travel springover shocks right away and adjust the ride height with them for the 35's and later on for the 40's if so? Also if I run Into a garage door height issue, can I thread up the shock collars to drop ride height to clear door if needed? I'm sorry if this is a total stupid question, but I want to be absolute clear to myself that my plan will work for me before i drop a major pile of dough on this conversion.


Thanks
Matt

I would be extremely surprised if you're over 7' even with 40's.

you can always do like I do, and have a set of smaller/shorter tires mounted on extra rims, just for moving it in and out of the garage

Thanks for the complement. I'm really, really new to this, and with just the one arm takes me a little long than most to get somethings done.

I've changed my mind a few times already, but my game plan is for a weekend wheeler that can be drove to and from the trails.

DIY 4 link in the back
DIY 3 link in the front
8.8 w/locker and 4.56s rear
D30 build up and locked front
Lengthen out wheelbase to 100 inches
35's
DIY full cage
DIY tube bumpers,fenders,rock guards
Tuning up the 4.2L with cam and few other things

Kinda the plan for now

Any thoughts on just swapping a 4.0 in? I picked up one with an NV3550 for $700, complete with wiring harness and ecu

I'm so far from building anything with the engine, that anything could come up with that by the time I need it.
