I will have to raise the jeep a lot higher to get the wheels back on. I sure wish i had a lift. Maybe some bigger logs. I was a little afraid of using the rounds but its way more sturdy than jack stands.

Nice going! You're really getting a LOT of work done.

I wish I could get myself motivated to get some of my ideas in action.....

Thanks Max, tommoro the wheels go on and i can get the rear driveline cut down. I checked the front driveline and it wont require any modes , or to the skid plate. I thought for sure I was going to have to cut a notch in the skid .

I got the rear and front brakes on, steering stabilizer, drag link, rear brake lines,front shocks,tires,oil in the diffs, transfercase,and more. I put the jeep on the ground for the first time and the hight is exactly what i was after. Now i can get the rear driveline measured. I left the front off because i noticed one of the u-joints was a little tight.I really want to drive it to see if the home made perch extenions will work out, or will i go into a death wobble and die a firey death!the to do list is getting shorter, finish posi-loc,hand throttle,rear driveline, install hard top, paint right front fender and one hard door,high lift jack mount, cut down front bumper, and add some tow hooks.If i had the money i would by front and rear bumpers ,winch, and a rubicon rack but the budjet is at its limit.

one tire is more worn than the other, different manufacturers... there are lots of possibilities. looks pretty good, good job making upgrades on budget, not all of us have a lot of cash laying around.

They should be, but unfortunatley they almost never are the same. I've had problems before switching tire manufactures on a vehicle where the fit was already at the max. One manufactures tires would fit fine, and anothers would rub like crazy, to the point of cutting the sidewall.

I try to research a tires true size by looking at the manufactures website for the measured true size before purchase now.

Great build and write up BTW.

today i took the rear driveline to the shop to get it shortend. $60. I here u guys get it done for $35 back east, cost of living thing i guess. I finished the posi-lock and cant wait try it. it still needs the vac lines pluged or removed and heat shrink done on the cable entrance to the posi-loc.

I set the rear pinion angle today. I was told to point the rear yoke str8 at the transfercase yoke and then down 1 degree for axle wrap up. This sounds easy but at first i didnt know how to get it exactly. So i took a string and taped it to the center line of both yokes. Note that the yokes must be perfectly level. and the jeep sitting on the ground at ride height. Once i got it perfect with the square i put an angle finder on the rear yoke and then moved it down 1 degree. then i tightened the u bolts and welded the perches. the cv shaft will run at 17 degrees witch is a lot less than i thought it would be. 22 degrees would be the max for this stock cv joint.

after the perches it was time to do the lower shock mounts. I cut down the old mounts to get them up and away from the rocks. By raising them i had to angle them in to not have the shock bottom out .I have them in the farthest in position ,but i have two more outboard adjustments.

Dude, your build rocks!



It's good that you're doing something with it daily. Building a Jeep is like pushing a Sherman tank, MOMENTUM IS EVERYTHING!!!
