I love Arizona rigs. So easy to work on a vehicle, even a 12 year old one when there isn't rust and dirt all over the place.
Count your blessings lol i find a new hole in mine every time i take it apart

Yep. I intentionally bought a rig before we moved from Tucson just for this reason.

Just a heads up, you're going to need to push your front axle forward at least 2" for body-to-tire clearance. That may get into the territory of interfering with the steering box or trackbar (I can't remember which one was close to hitting).

Running 35's, I had to push mine forward an inch (at least) to clear the body. That was after I pounded and ground the pinch weld in the wheel well (body side) enough that I ground through everything and ended up patching it.

Those aren't brake lines, that's the ebrake cables and speed sensors.

I bent the single brake line that runs back up a little and put a bottle on the end.

Got it all disconnected without leaking a drop of fluid on my floor. Pretty happy with myself.

Got em off the trailer and into the garage. Hopefully get them apart and bare this weekend, gotta cut the nonsense off the front the PO thought would be a good link setup...

For inquiring minds, pipe and tractor heims do not a good linked suspension make.

Loving the progress man. Looks great. The fender trimming looks awesome.

I probly saw that 10 times on cherokeeforum... "Hey guys can I use tractor heims for adjustable CA's?" That forum is the reason I'm glad I don't drive an XJ anymore.

Thanks!

I'm hoping I trimmed enough for the 37s.

May have to move the tank some more. Waiting on my protofab bumpers before taking more off to see how they all line up, I'll have to trim those also as they are made for factory lines I believe.

Yeah, they work great for three point implements but have too much play for suspension or steering IMHO.
