Well very interesting, and will follow along with you. Have you considered going thru the drivetrain at all with putting those rubbers and 1 tons on it? It would seem that the engine and trans will be stress tested more quickly with the 300k miles already on it.

I thought about it, but just going to run it for a while. Thinking about a stroker motor down the road.

The right gearing take the stress off the engine and transmission.

Not necessarily true. You have extreme amount of negative resistance with the added diameter and wt with the tires and rims, and also the nearly double the wt with the 1 tons, and that is what I am referring to. Gears are only allowing less rpm effort with the higher gear ratio and less strain on the trans from having to shift up and down constantly, along with fuel economy.

But, as they say, if it ain't broken, no need fixin. So we will see, and indeed it will be a tuff SOB to break in the mud, axle wise that is.

Interesting build, like the scrambler too! You should join NorthEastFL4x4.com it's a site I just got back up and running to get local 4x4 enthusiast together. I know people would love to see your builds. My CJ7 build just turned into the forum build.

Trimmed the front fenders yesterday, still need to do the cut and fold on the pinch seam. May have to end up cutting more but will wait till I can get the tires on to check the clearance. Probably will end up cutting the front side horizontally just below the side marker lght. Also removed the front bumper, thinking about recessing a winch below the radiator to help the approach angle like this http://s143.photobucket.com/albums/r...cpZZ1QQtppZZ20

Ordered some leaf spring pearches from Ruff Stuff Specialties this morning. If they arrive by this weekend I may have the rearend sitting under the Jeep Sunday.

Before




Scratched a line following the mark left by the fender flare and then cut it off with a cutoff wheel and the cleaned it up with a flap disc.




After, when its all said and done going to cover the edge with door trim.




Bumper off




Getting there!

Ordered some coil buckets/lca mounts from Ballistic Fabrication today. Hopefully I won't be reporting a horror story about them soon like some people have.

Perches arrived yesterday, the plan is to get them tacked on tomorrow and slide the rearend under the jeep.




Got an email from Ballistic Fab today saying my brackets were backordered (imagine that ) Called them up, talked to 2 different people and changed brackets so hopefully I'll see those soon. Changed from the 3" diameter to 3.25" The Dana 60 housing is like 3 1/8" so I don't think it should be a big deal.

Out with the old




In with the new!








33's and no lift, better not hit any bumps





Just put a tack weld on the perches to keep them from moving until I figure out the exact pinion angle.
