how much longer is the drag link than the trackbar? looks like you could move that TB all the way out to the knuckle if you needed to.

wouldn't want you to have any bumpsteer.....

98% likely it would have gotten in the way of the coil.

At least if they're parallel he won't get as much bump steer - with a shorter track bar he will get a much larger "pendulum" arc effect on articulation, though.

Looks so friggin wicked.. I love the low stance.


.. Also, a lazy question, what brake lines did you use for the rear? Soft/hard, etc.

TB - 31"
DL - 35 1/2"

Could have made it longer but I would have had to work around the coils and not been able to use high steer tie rods. With the little bit of driving I've done in it, I haven't noticed any bumpsteer. Although it may be hard to tell since all it does is bounce cause it aint got shocks. As for the brake lines, reused the extended soft hose from the scrambler from the frame to the axle, hard lines split and run down the axle tubes and a short soft hose to the calipers.

Well ain't this some crap...the Jeep is finally drivable and now it won't start . Changed the CPS but no luck, my friend that works at a Jeep dealer thinks maybe it's the computer. No spark and can't hear the fuel pump run. He's suppose to come over one evening and look at it for me.

Any news?


Gotta say I'm a little jealous you got to test drive yours already.

I managed to spend a record shortest time in the garage yesterday. Came home from work, went in the garage, picked up the grinder to smooth stuff off, and cut a brake line. Dropped the grinder and went to watch TV instead.

I noticed in the video that I guess you have a ton of axle wrap - unsurprising, but are you planning on an anti-wrap bar before you hit the trails?

Only news is that I moved it from the front of my shop to the side. My buddy still hasn't showed up to take a look at it. Need to get it going soon though so I can get any gremlins worked out so it can go to Jeep Beach the end of April. As far as the axle wrap, I do plan on a traction bar. It probably does have a little wrap, but the video may be playing a trick on you. It has no shocks and bounces like a kid in a bounce house just driving down the road
