So with my new rear axle the shock mounts where level with the axle tubes. with that the 10" shocks I had were way to short! changed them out with some 7" ones i took off my other jeep when i gave it a little boost.




To this




Its not on level ground, there is like a 1" bump in the driveway where i park the jeep, so i can fit it with my other nose to nose

Got the mini spools in. We will see how they are on the trails next weekend at rausch creek. It doesnt seem to bad so far, drove it around town a little, just a little scrub around corners.


Freeze em up


Done.


jeep drives pretty nicely on the road.



been doing some work on the tow rig too.
mounted a little tongue box, hold some stuff and will work with a stack nicely.


made some wood sides


and i made a tailgate net. will be perfect for between the wood sides

Hey man. I just went through your whole thread. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I am gathering parts for my build now. I will start tearing into it in a few weeks. I am not going as extreme as you did, but it will be fun! I am a diesel guy too, I have had a few in the past and now have a 2012 2500 Cummins G56. Good work.

So i broke the hell out of my jeep at rausch creek! shock mounts tore off the tnt truss and then i cracked the track bar bracket right off and it peeled the unibody apart!!! Wheeled it hard and i had a good time. heres the jeep at shoot the moon, a red trail. I have another video of the other side too but photo bucket doesn't like to load videos from my laptop .

I was egged on to go first and i made it look easy, others after me did worse lol even bigger and more built jeeps, when you click to watch the video you can probably see the other videos if you want
