Man this is such a sick build .. i think most people just have not seen it or our thread would be 70 pages long ... A+ work man .. pro. If you told me you did this for a job I would understand. you probably do work at a jeep or fab shop or something. But really really nice ...



Too bad your in CA .. I would make payments to you to cage my XJ

Great cage work man, one of my next steps will be an Exo cage

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

thanks man, i actually stock shelves at a grocery store haha I just do this as a hobby

i picked up some parts today

i got some 4.5" polyurethane bumps for the rear


a spintech muffler


i wanted to make sure i didnt have any clearance issues so i made some mock up links out of some angle iron and used 1 3/4" hrew for the upper




i just need to build a mock up track bar and i can cycle the suspension

Just curious here, why didn't you plate to the very front edge of the frame rail? It seems everyone stops a few inches short?
I ask because we are making templates and cutting mine out at 730 am tomorrow. I have HD offroad centers and am building y own front and rear. I'm using something just shy of 1/8" I believe and wanted to go as far forward and as far backwards as physically possible.
Tying them to the center, as well as fish plating over.

My main reason was that at the time I wasn't sure if I was going to be building a front bumper or buying one so I wanted to leave room for the bumper plates then tie those into the existing stiffners. But eventually they will go all the way to the front of the frame

not much of an update but i got the mock up track bar all mounted and cycled the suspension today, everything cleared when i flexed the front suspension but when i tried to cycle the suspension to full bump i ran into some clearance issues with the upper link mount hitting the frame about 1" before full bump.



1" before full bump


heres where the heim makes contact with the frame, im gonna move the bracket over about an inch and cut off the part of the bottom of the frame that sticks out a little

i got the upper link mount to fit today and got the 7" of up travel i was looking for



i should have the links built out of DOM tomorrow

i dont think i showed how i was mounting the upper on the frame end, i cut a hole in the floor and cut out a piece of 1/4" plate and drilled some in it and plug welded it to the frame and welded the outside of the plate to the frame



im gonna plate the floor around the link mount with some 10 guage steel so i had my buddy cut it out on his new cnc machine for a case of beer because i didnt want to drill all those holes ha
