Stock: Lost the picture, everyones seen a stock jeep with 7 year old soccer players in the back seat :rofl:

Heres the last post too just to put a little more in this thread.

Started constructing my new crossmember. The 2x2 will be welded onto the stiffeners and then the tube is welded onto a small piece of plate that bolts to the 2x2. Its tacked on now just to mock it up. Have a 4x6 piece of plate that will be welded in to bolt the tranny mount to. Eventually the hole bottom of the tube will be plated. Have to bend a piece of tube for the transfercase skid aswell.

What's next for your jeep after the crossmember?

UTChavok 04-03-2009 06:26 PM

Save and do rear LAs and the 8.8. After I get that done regear the 8.8 and HP30 that I find to 4.56 and do front LAs, bump up to just under 6" then too. Get chromollys for the 30 and throw some 35s on there. I could go on and on haha. I basically decided to skip the waggy 44 and do 8.8/30 until I get the knowledge and ability to run full width tons, and the little factor of money.

When you say long arms I hope you mean Claytons.

CaribouLouWJ 04-03-2009 06:37 PM

If he can build that crossmember, he can build his own LA's.

ZJones, does Clayton pay you every time you mention his name lol

Jones 04-03-2009 06:38 PM

Wouldn't you like to know.



Claytons

CaribouLouWJ 04-03-2009 06:44 PM

He should be paying you to use his arms.

My front lower mounts will be on the unibody though instead of built into the crossmember.

311LJ 04-03-2009 08:23 PM

nice lookin' zj.. my lower mounts are on the unibody as well..

UTChavok 04-10-2009 04:45 PM

I just got the jeep back, it feels so much better driving this then my parents cars. No major updates though but I did change out my 4" red firestik for a 3" black one. Definitely like it better, and will be alot better in the parking garage when I go to work.

I love this jeep! You have made it a clean build. How do you like those sliders? Probably going to be my next upgrade

rugermack 04-11-2009 08:21 AM

Is your crossmember going to be removable ? You might want to think about that.

I love the sliders, they saved my rockers so many times. My only regret is not getting them sooner. If you wheel with any type of rocks they would be #1 on my list to do.

Yes it is. If you look you can see two holes that are drilled on a peice of 1/4 and that bolts onto the 2x2.

MoonyJohn 04-11-2009 12:17 PM

What other plans do you have for it?
