i guess i should have caught it. i am normally pretty good on the uptake, i have been in some pretty dumb/useless discussions on this forum before. it wasn't long ago there was a debate over oil life. guy tried to tell me that there is no oil out there that can go more than 3k miles without needing to be changed. even after citing results directly from the lab at the refinery that writes my paycheck. you just can't argue with stupid.

anyhow... back on track...
today i resigned myself to having someone else finish my rig. dropped the new frame off to the shop that was getting my d60's ligned up and under the jeep with proper steering. i just don't have the time and/or heart to want to work on it after losing ratmonkey. i'll just shell out tons of cash and just drive it later in the summer.

basically agreed to about $2500 worth of labor and about $another $500 worth of parts to go on the old girl.

Ratmonkey donation page. all proceeds will go to his family.

it's not much to look at... but it's mine.

Phew!
Stayed up until 4am last night working on the paint job and buttoning my rig up for today's wheeling. Got most of the paint done, but I do have a ton of touch up work to do. By the time I got showered up, the Jeep loaded, and tools put away it was 5:30 am. Had to leave to meet the wheeling group by 7am so I ended up just getting breakfast and coffee and heading out. Dear lord I'm tired now!

Then wheeled the crap out of it today. Overheated in the 104* heat when the ground popped off my fan. Then I blew up my rear u-joint and drove the 35 miles home in front wheel drive lol! I think my pinion angle on the 8.8 ended up a scosche high. Is there any way to bring it down a notch that does not include shims or new perches. Looking at how everything settled I'd say it's about 2* high of where it should be. Not really any vibes except during a hard launch, but I should probably deal with that!

Oh and a pic from last night...I'll get more up later.


Time for a shower and a nap...

Cheers

Took the tarp off my frame and got sweaty, covered in metal shavings and felt overwhelmed by my rust repair job.

Looks awesome!!!!!

Oh for your pinion problem, the only thing i can think of other then moving the pirches or adding shims would be to remove aftermarket shackles if you have them but that probably won't make a huge difference...

Well I plan on making a electric hard top hoist in my garage so removing the hard top will be much easier then pulling the soft top.

A partial tummy tuck should put u at the right pinion angle. 2 birds 1 stone.

PS: when i built my 8.8 i intentionally set the pinion angle too high in anticipation of a full TT. When i did my TT, i ended up with a PERFECT pinion angle.

PPS: when my angle was to high, i blew the sleeve yoke end of my rear driveshaft while gunning it in a rut. The ears of the sleeve yoke bound with the ears of the 8.8 flange adapter and BOOM. Most likely why u blew ur ujoint as well. Just a wild guess.

If I had a garage I'd probably do the same, but it'd still come off in May and not to back on till first hard frost. The hoist would just be to make my life easier for those 20 minutes LOL. Though I'm happy the YJ hardtop is so light compared to my old TJ's hardtop!

Combine all that ( shackles , tummy tuck ( I like this idea) ) with maybe drilling a new hole in your perches and moving your axle back on the springs for a makeshift stretcher . You'll probably be able to dial you P/A right in . Of Course you could always grinde the perches off and start over .
