Never too late to teach yourself. I'm far from an expert.

This is a good place to start:

Any more info on how you made your own setup bearings. I found it mentioned in the pirate thread you linked, but couldnt find any more info on it.

Sure, I took the old bearings I pressed off and used my dremmel to hone out the ID of the bearing so that it was a hand fit onto the carrier and pinion. I ground them out just enough that I could push them on by hand but not so much that they were loose.

Makes it so you don't have to press the bearings each time you change shims. Then after I got the pattern where I wanted I pressed on the new bearings and put it all back together.

Hope that was clear enough.

Plenty clear. I figured it was something to that effect, the fact that its really that easy is what threw me off. Thanks!

Had to run a jet to Tucson yesterday hence the lack of work.

Burned on the base brackets for the coils. Gotta cut off the track bar mount deal on the passenger side as I'm using Claytons TB bracket for high steer. These brackets were originally T&T's TJ brackets I moved wider for the WJ. Also have to weld on the center cup(not sure what you'd call it) for the isolators to sit on.

I'm kinda taking parts I like from different places and welding them to the truss I liked.







As soon as I have the front as far as I can go until more parts get here I'll cut off the rears brackets and leaf spring mounts and get the gears in it. I **expect** to have that done NLT this weekend.

Oh, and the shafts, knuckles, etc are staying off until I get it under the jeep. Its heavy enough as it sits..

Also, Mike from Protofab emailed and said they loaded my bumpers and got them on the road yesterday.

Looking forward to getting those mounted up.

And where I stop for the night.

Cups burned on and bracket cut as needed. And yes, I intentionally put them centered on the axle instead of offset forward.

that thing is looking great. explain the reason for not offsetting the spring perch. wouldn't this create a low caster angle when springs are straight?

I took this into account when I welded the truss, I set vertical @ 5 degrees of caster.

All moving the cups directly over the axle did was push the axle forward a little under 2".

Pulled the NP247 today, guy picks it up tomorrow.

Also started disassembling the 60 to get it ready.

Then I ordered a Dorman plastic tank to modify for my windshield washer bottle since I need to relocate from the stock bottle location.. I fully intended to use a ZJ setup and change my intake or move the evap system but decided to go a different route since I really don't like the open element style filters.

Picture or link to the plastic tank? I haven't had a washer bottle in years. Carrying around a bottle of water for the windshield gets old after a while. Hahah.
