Getting somewhere now. Test fitting the tub back on....definitely got some clearance issues, but I pretty much knew I would. You can really see the stretch now.

New Skyjacker nitro shocks for an 89 dodge ram...14" travel....$50 a piece. Aaannnddd I started myself on fire with the grinder. This isnt the first casualty. I almost cut my left pointer finger off with the grinder...freak accident...I thought my finger was still in the glove when I removed it. That was stitches and 4 hrs with the Dr. I also got a metal sliver in my eye...Im blind from birth in my left eye and I woke up blind. Another trip to the ER. So my budget build has gotten expesive if you figure in the Dr bills and the new tools.

DONE!!!! the frame is welded up or at least the majority of it. It is nice to have that crossed off the list of stuff to do. I checked the date and that was 03/16/13....10 more days to catch up on....I think I am done for the night. Enjoy!!

Yes all the pics are coming through fine. Hell of a project, great job!

Never saw that green color on a Jeep before, was that stock do you think? The while looks MUCH better, keep up the good work.

Your garage looks like mine....**** all over the place!

Ya, looks like we are in the same boat, my frame looks a bit better than that, but all in all same direction.

You got a 8.8 yet? I got one all stripped down here with 3.73's. also you keeping that d30? got one here too if you want spare parts.

GREAT looking build man!! I know exactly what you are going through. Currently I am swapping a 9" into the rear and a HP D44 up front. Along with Waggy springs a flat belly skid, cleaning the underside and coating it all. My frame repair is no where near as bad as yours. But the restoration is still a time consuming and challenging event. That and this kind of a build are VERY involved. Keep up the good work. I am subscribing to get some ideas.

X2 We are all on the same slow moving steam boat. I say we have a race to see who can get done first. And one to see who can screw up the most stuff!!

AND we're all good ol Wisconsin boys! Well now I'm in New Mexico but born and raised WI style

I originally wanted to buy brand new springs but I ordered one set from JC Whitney and they were back ordered months so I tried ordering a different brand but got the same results. In hindsight I should have waited...for the time and effort I have in pulling them and cleaning, painting, etc I could have bought a new set. I pulled all these springs out of the junkyard and this set is a little different than the first set. The eye on the spring is bigger and they seem to be way flexier than the others. So I decided instead of going and getting another set I would just sleeve these. So the next set of pictures goes through the steps.

SYE Kit is in thanks to Kimmer, a local wheeling friend. I brought it home and cleaned it up with a wire wheel....I may paint it, not sure. I heard aluminum is hard to paint. Thats later anyways.
