i tried to take as many as possible



first thing i did was remove the axle/suspension

then i put the JKS shackle in and made sure it would clear when the suspension cycled...........it didnt the first thing to hit was the bolt for the bumper. after i cut the bolt it started to hit the body. im not gonna start cutting that unti i can cyle the suspension



the cut bolt



then i bolted up the leafsprings



i cut the spring perches and shock mounts off the ford 9" and started to clean up the axle to get it ready to go in

I've been slacking on the updates lately but I got the ford 9" under the jeep







I still need to take the leafs apart and cycle the rear suspension and set up the bumpstops but I should be able to get about 7-8" of uptravel

I decided to put the frame stiffners on today since I had it off jackstands.

I used torch and putty knife to scrape off most of the under coating and then used a 24 grit sand paper flap wheel



Then tacked the stiffners on



I got most of the welding done but had to stop early because the wind was blowing the sheilding gas away
