Keeping my cv shaft... 1310 on the end, matches the 1310 of the yoke flange. I verified this when I accidentally ordered the smaller mustang 8.8 yoke flange, which fits the u-joint, but not the axle flange.

Hmm. I'm still trying to decide what I want to do as far as DS and SYE are concerned. I'm probably going to just bite the bullet and get it all now.

And the U-bolts arrived at work today...



Too bad they wont work.

I knew they were going to be way too long but I figured I could just cut it down, no big deal. I didn't think about how long the threads were gonna be though. Oh well. I ordered some shorter ones and they should be here soon

Yeah, crazy.. oh well though!

This time it was white santa who dropped off a present today:



Spring perches, shock tabs, u-bolt plates, and a pair of clevis mounts (for the front bumper) from GPF

High quality stuff, very pleased

The spring perches are DIY style, I have to weld them together



Then they'll fit together like so..



Still waiting on parts!!

I would highly suggest welding the tubes to the center section. if your spending the time to build it up might as well do it right.

Agreed, I have a couple of two to three inch long beads along the tube/diff on both sides. Apprehensive about welding cast without proper equipment, even though I know many others have.

Ground Pounder Fab. He's a member on here, BESRK. I talked to him and we worked out all what I needed, better than any of the "kits" out there IMO and about half the price

I plan on it! Although I haven't decided if I want to have it "professionally" done or if I will just borrow a friends arc welder (my little HF flux isnt nearly up to the task)

I must admit I didnt do the welding of the tubes I paid a pro to do it. I did weld the spring perches and shock mounts myself though.



After you ground down those plug welds on your 8.8 you will regret it if you dont get the tubes welded to the diff. I really wish I would have went with a stronger rear cover like the one lutzke21 hasAre you planning on welding up your spring perches with that 90 amp welder of yours?? I hope not! its not going to be up to the task of welding that thick of steel. not trying to be rude just trying to help a fellow jeeper out If you lived closer I would offer to weld them up for ya.

To weld my tubes, I rented a 220V stick(ark) welder and some nickel rods.

Those are nice welds! I just ordered the Blue Torch Fabworks diff cover (which is very similar to lutzke21) and am way too excited to get it...

No, sadly i've recognized the limitations of my welder. My plan as of now is to get the axle under the jeep, set my pinion angle, get everything where I want it, and tack it in with my welder.
Then I'll either take it to a local shop to have final welded or borrow an arc welder.

No offense taken, thanks for the tip!


BTW, Monstaliner and chassis saver should be here tomorrow!!

Question...

I've decided to just bite the bullet now and order an SYE.

I'm going to get the JB Conversions kit shown here.

Since I'm going to be running a DC shaft, I would need the CV yoke, correct? NOT the non-cv yoke?

The CV is Part #16-1200-1942

The Non-CV is Part #16-1200-1983

I'm a little confused as to the difference between CV yokes and non-CV yokes.
