Sweet. I hope it works out this time. What happened to the track bar mount area that you reinforced it?

I cut off the factory mount and put my own in when I redid the suspension. I welded the mount right to the frame rail instead of plating it first and the stress of offloading tore the metal around the mount, too thin.

Ah, I see. Definitely time to repair then. How hard is the KOR skid to install? I've glanced at it a couple time. But I've never really looked at it.

Shouldn't be too bad. Looks like some drilling and nutserts.

I haven't put it in yet, sitting on the floor waiting for me to clean it up and paint it.

Mine took me about an hour to install, but that is because I also did some welding. I did paint it the day before as well.

There are two bolts that tie it to the factory crossmember, then I ran to the store to buy some large nuts to use as spacers (My lift kit lowered the crossmember like a T-case drop). Then I used a drill to screw the self tapping bolts into the unibody, then I also tack welded the unibody side mount in place as well.



This is right before I tack welded it.

Hmm. That skid isn't what I have, at least it doesn't look like it. Mine is the one that works with the Clayton frame stiffeners.

I didn't know there was more that one option with KOR.

Will, your skid is the none claytons one. He also makes one for the claytons suspension.

Makes sense. I am glad the standard one worked with my RK kit.

The KOR is not too bad to install, just a lot of drilling. Pay attention to what size bit to use where, though. I didn't drill the larger diameter holes in the skid where it mounts to the frame stiffeners, so when I went to put the self-tapping bolts in, it was a huge PITA and took a lot of impact wrench to get them in until I figured out it was because the bolts were having to tap the skid as well as the stiffeners they were bolting to. I don't look forward to the day when I have to remove that skid. I imagine I'll have some broken bolts to drill out.

Hopefully that makes sense. I've had a few. I still haven't started doing anything here in Cali due to the gov shutdown and whatnot. Apparently SERE school and getting us started flying supers isn't a priority, so I've basically been on vacation for the last 3 months.

Rig still looks great, dude. I've been re-reading it to refresh myself on the swap process. I'm picking up my HP44 in Reno this weekend and will be sourcing a 60 from one of the local yards for the rear. Gonna shave the rear for more clearance with 35's, gear them both to 4.88 and throw in some lockers, probably Ox after seeing your build.

Better late than never, I've been away from the forum for a bit.

Sorry to hear you're still on hold..hopefully this budget stuff gets sorted soon, but the cynic in me kind of doubts it...we are having similar issues on the Air Force side, but more along of the lines of killing the whole A10 fleet..we shall see.

Nothing exciting with the Jeep, put new plates on it. Hooray.

They can't get rid of the Warthog. That's one of the best CAS platforms in the US inventory. Really hope they don't do that. Always liked that jet. I still have a picture of an A-10 I got the pilot to autograph at an airshow when I was a kid.

They finally got us rolling, finished SERE, and I've completed a whopping 4 sims in 4 weeks. Moving right along... Hoping to start flying in January or February. Hard to develop any sort of proficiency in a new platform this way, though.

At least it gives me time to work on the Jeep. Got my rock lights finished, finally. After Christmas when I get back from leave, I'm going to start sourcing parts for these axles. I'll probably hit you up for some advice on putting together a complete parts list and the best order to buy/build when the time comes, if that's cool with you.
