Thanks! And I sure hope so. Just got ujoints today and front brake lines. The stock ford brake lines are 18 inches long so I'm gonna try those even though I know they will end up being to short. I just want to drive it so ill use those until I can order some stainless 21" lines. I pulled the jeep up the driveway today while my gf steering and I must say from the front she looks sexy. The jeep not the gf lol. Gf does to tho. I wanted to move the jeep into the garage now that all I have to do is brakes and driveshafts.

I think I'm gonna stretch the rear like 2". My perches and u bolt plates have adjustment holes in them so If my sye with front driveshaft is long enough ill move the axle back a little and trim fenders accordingly

Haha the 10 feet up the driveway quite well. I'm pulling an all nighter tonight. New front brakes, brake lines, and wheelbase adjustment in the rear and I will be driving it. Hoping to get it done quick. Just did the sye and the driveshaft is an inch to long. Hence the wheelbase adjustment lol

Fantastic. My driveshaft is like a half inch to short. And since its for the rear I don't trust myself to shorten it because I don't want vibes. Dammit

X2, get us some more pics once you've fully welded things in. And what welder are you using? Not knocking you, it's nice to see a decent build on JF for once...

Ill get some tonight. I'm not saying my welds are good by any means. I do have concerns with some of them but that's why I'm testing it in the yard and some trails in my woods before I take it on the road. I'm using a Eastwood 135 with gas. Not the best welder. I really need a stick welder. I spent all year using a Lincoln invertec stick welder at school and then I go to mig and have to get re oriented.
