81 jeep scrambler 3-link

how it going guys...... im new here and i've been building my scrambler for over a year...... hope you guys like it

10-2-12

****** ONE THING I FORGOT TO SAY IS THAT THIS IS BEEN ABOUT A YEAR IN THE MAKING******

at first i was going spring over on 1.5" military wrap springs but i was going to be 10' in the air and i didnt want that so my buddy had a set of coilovers for sale and so thats one way of getting lower (but on a bigger budget lol) so i had to ask the bank and she said yes but dont spend toooo much lol boy if she only knew lol



ok this is what im working with:
81 scrambler was a 4cyl now a 4.0l aw4 trand and np231 with a teraflex 4:1 t-case from a 91 cherokee
hp dana 44 from a 3/4 ton f250 built used-------------- but now has 5 lug (cause i already had rims )
currie high9 35 spline-------------- used
12" bilsteins coilovers ---------------- used
corbeau suspension seat front & a 42" corbeau bench for rear
35" bfg km2 on black steel rims
3 link for the front & leaf spring in rear

Nice looking start! If you end up going for that cage, make sure you close off those sections in the back to make them triangles and possibly the front as well. Looks like a few possible week points.
