That's good to hear. I haven't really ever used mine. In fairly sure a 90 is out of the question.

That's all I use it for is small control arm bends. I've heard of people making 90s on roll cage tubing, but it takes alot of time and patience.

What did you bend your cage with? Is it HREW or DOM?

pulled out my stock crossmember and got my exhaust out of the way.




should be pretty easy to build a flat belly x-member.




rolled the axle under the jeep to get an idea of my wheelbase and where everything is going to go.




set my caster and tacked in the coil mounts, and also tacked in the UCA mount and track bar mount about where they will end up









and decided im probably going to go with a TJ pitman arm for a little more steering clearence, the TJ pitman is around 1" higher than the stock XJ.





so i went ahead and drilled out the TJ arm to 5/8"




and i tossed together the new chromo's for it.

did some mocking and planning tonight.
tacked the crossmember together (still missing the side plates that will sandwich the framerail)



mocked it under the jeep, and marked will i will cut to make clearence for the bottom of the trans and driveshaft.


im thinking i will do this setup for my transmount off the front of the crossemember.



and cut up my floor some.


im going back and forth on how i want to mount the upper link mount.
either like this


or this, which is where im more leaning to because it will give me a little more frame seperation.


and how it looks from under.

and looks like i wont have to do way to much bending on the upper link to clear the starter.


couple more mock up pictures. pretty much just me figuring out exactly where im mounting my frame side track bar mount.

Why is the heim for the upper link sideways? Just thinking it would get more movement out of it if it was vertical vs horizontal. Idk though I'm just asking

Sideways will give me a little more separation, more welding surface also. And it will still droop farther than I'll be able to use
