Thanks!

Got the other hub/etc done on the rear axle, tire is on until my new pads/tcase get here. All thats left on the rear is brakes and pinion angle.



Started burning in the new cross member/LCA mount:

Finished burning the mounts on, cleaned up the welds, sprayed on some primer/paint, and dropped the transmission back onto the crossmember.

May actually start the front end install this week..

Yeah the Hog is a great jet. Love the time I get in it, which is almost nothing until October due to funding, over 1/3 of the Air Force's combat pilots have been stood down on all training missions until then.

Modding the Clayton brackets are going to be more work than I initially thought. The differential is going to be in the way so I've gotta do some cutting on it and clearance the driver side bracket quite a bit. Took a break tonight to think about how I'm going to do it.

Hoping to successfully re-attack in the morning

thats a lot of clearance over the 37's.. I like it. Hopefully my front end will look like yours shortly, axle-less haha.

Haha, didn't last long.. Still have work, removing old brackets from the frame, get the axle completely centered, etc, but its on the suspension..





Long day, this fought a lot more than the rear. Lessons learned:

I don't think I'd mix and match brackets were I to do it over. I'd probably ditch the truss, it was a lot of work for what probably is very little gain, considering the beef of the 3" tubes already.

If you're doing Claytons brackets on a Ford HP 44 be ready for the driver side LCA mount to need reworked, to put it where it needs to go it has to be modified as the diff is in the way a little. No biggie, but something to think about.

If you're using Clayton brackets and a JKS track bar, you'll have to cut it down almost 3-4 inches or rework the frame bracket, your choice.

I'll think of more.

Thanks, unfortunately it won't be done by next weekend. Even if I got all the parts in I have now I'm still waiting on my transfer case and then I'll have to measure for a drive shaft.

Its coming along though.

Thanks, the clearance seems good as it sits. Im curious to see how much it drops with the bumpers and spare tire on. I've got a couple .75 spacers and 2" spacers in the garage to play around with ride height once all the weight is on the Jeep. I'm thinking they might not be needed though.

Another pic. Stock cover is just on for when I painted. Once I get the ox cable connected to the shifter the ox cover will go on.

your track bar is short, and you drag link is gunna be longer due to the extra width. it will cause some flex steer.

Clearance issues with the differential. The brackets have multiple holes for mounting options, I'm still playing with which I want to use.
