Argh...

Got my brake lines in today from Rock Auto... went to take my stainless lines off the rig and broke the rear hardline at the rear dropline... Ahwell, better to find it in the driveway than on the road or trail and not have any brakes. So looks like I gotta run a new hardline from the prop valve all the way back to the rear axle... go me.

Looks good With the H2s you will have to notch the rear frame a good bit to run them outboarded, but i think the easiest way would be to figure out how to mount the shocks on the inside. When I went to H2s on my YJ I ended up selling my Bilsteins and going with a set of cheap shocks inboarded for packaging simplicity.

Thanks man... I know I asked you a ton of questions right before I started my build... fortunately everything went together pretty easy!


So I got a buddy who has a set of 10" travel 5150s... Im thinking that might be a better route to go huh!? How much travel do you get out of your rear on leafs?

Here is a picture of how i mounted my shocks.


These are just some old like 8 inch travel shocks that were originally on my rear back when it was spring under. With this set up i am running 4 inches of uptravel without my shocks bottoming out. The only thing my shocks limit now is droop, but i have never had a problem with raising a rear tire yet. Another thing to consider is I took maybe half of the leafs out of my packs to lower my jeep so you should have a little more room under the back of your jeep and most likely less droop than I do because your springs shouldn't compress as much. I was using some tabs i already had strictly welded to the frame but i'm sure you could easily make some tabs that come off of the top of the frame to allow for a longer shock. Also consider that when you have your shock mounted at an angle the axle is able to move up and down say 12 inches where as your shock shaft might move 10.

Welp, drove her around the block tonight...

Still got some air in the lines. Had to pump the brakes once then on the 2nd it would break your neck! Should work just the way I want it once I get it tuned in.

Heard an interesting knocking while it was idling... I saw oil leaking from the top/front of the motor... gonna put a new valve cover gasket in this weekend... turns out a motor needs oil... who woulda guessed that?!

Also apparently a slushbox needs fluid to "slush" properly! A bit low on that one too...

Finally, the front is toed in so bad the locker would ratchet when I was on the gas!

Great ride around the block... I was cheesing the whole way.

Not to sound stupid but are those ladder bars on the back? The triangle looking things I mean.

It is an antiwrap bar... Help with axle wrap caused with running leaf springs. You only need 1 on the rear axle.

Oh. So like when you gun it then the axle won't shift right?

Over the last 45 years have had a lot of winches and finally settled on the MM 12,000 winches front and rear on my CJ7-, VEX. They are killer tough with the 1/2" cable and the three 60 ton snatch blocks. My last WARN was 20 years ago and they are good winches since they were the first in the electric field of winches back in the late 60s, but I need bigger winches so MM came to the fore. WARN does make the 12k now but I do not like the filament wound motor brushes.

How may leaves do you have in those packs??? Did you have to notch or move your gas tank?

Nice ride!

Vex, you're right... MM's are nice winches... just slow pulling. I've never seen one fail though. I love your jeep man.

Sundowners... they are the stock full size jeep front springs, 7 leafs. I do need to notch the gas tank... it has a paper thin amount of clearance at static ride height. Here's a picture of how much... or little clearance I have.

Also, here is a shot of how much wheelbase I got with the FSJ springs flipped.

I got a slight knock in the drivetrain... I think I have it figured out... pretty sure my CV driveshaft is bottoming out on my output yoke on the tcase. gonna drop the driveshaft and knock a bit off the ears on the H portion of the cv and grind the yoke a tad.

Been about a month... my jeep got some new parts yesterday. 10" travel Bilstein 5150's & MORE shock extenders. Hopefully I can finally get some shocks under this pig.

Got my MORE shock extensions installed. Pretty straight forward, toughest part is drilling the hole in the stock shock mount and frame rail. A unibit helped me out. I had to cut a heat shield off and trim the fuel filter mount. But, I managed to fit my 12" bilstein 5125's in the rear. The lower shock mounts aren't too low, definitely better than the stock location.

I still have to clearance the gas tank skid and fab up an antiwrap bar.
