Moking up the rear shock hoops. I couldnt find much info on this, except for TJ's. All I know is that I really want them outboard and will do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Ok Here is the newest member of the family....George! I picked him up off CL for $100 and the next day sold some old tires I had laying in the storage shed for $50 so its kinda like I paid $50 for it. Major score! The Garage is being built right along with the Jeep. I have now about $800 in tools since I started this project but that isnt bad considering I got a welder, air compressor, shop crane, 2 grinders, all new drill bits...man the list is endless. Probably more than $800 now that I think about it.

That 8.8 is a bit narrower than the stock d35, so there aint much room right there when the tires are on, more so when you go to flex that thang. I been asking around because I wanta do the same thing with mine. I going with full width axles and still will have to french them into the frame. Hind sight is aways 20/20 but you could of narrowed up that back when you refabbed it.

My shotty HF air compressor went down last week, and am waiting to get a new 60gal when the tax return gets here. Waiting to teardown my rear axle when I can use air tools.

Ok so I got a little bored last night....so I took a lot of pictures and made a little tutorial. I need to make two shock hoops but mirrored from each other. Where the shock hoop is going to go is right on the motor mount so there are a lot of crazy angle. My dads a plumber and I used to do pipe fitting so I have learned a thing or two about working with pipe. The first shock hoop is tough, measure, cut, check, repeat, until you have it right. Now you have one side perfect but why go through all that again. Take a piece of paper and wrap it around. Cut the end off flush with your cut( I honestly rip it close enough). Now flip it inside out and wrap it around the pipe you want to cut. I used the first one to line up my length and alignment of the cut....do both sides, mark and cut. leave it long just in case you were wrong.

oh i am quickly finding this out but I think I have it taken care of with some 1.5" wheel spacers. I will have to keep working on it.

I was thinking about dove tailing the frame even now but then I would have to four link it because of the leaf spring mount...it will all work out...there have been about a dozen or more times that I ran into problems and wanted to quit or just sell the thing. But then a day later I get a genious idea and its all good.

I have been waiting for this day for about 3 weeks. My tires are finally in! First pic them not mounted on rims.

Think I need a bigger car or a truck. Oh yah I had a truck.

My little garage helper.

Here it sits on its own legs. Now I can really see that I am going to struggle with the outboard of the rear shocks.

This is the 7th time I put the body on the frame.

These are the reasons that I cant lose the back seat or put the gas tank in the tub. I can see I will be building at least 2 more of these....Think I will give them this one and build Dad a better one with bigger everything! LOL

Oh and me with the jeep before we started taking it apart. I think I just got the headlights working. All the other pictures have my brother in law in them.

Before you finalize those rear hoops I would check the clearance with a tire flexed. You may run into some clearance problems. A lot of guys end up frenching the shock mount into the frame for that reason. I didn't and my shocks sit less than an inch from my frame and at fill flex my tire is about an inch away as well

BTW I am so jealous of your shop and tools...I just drooled on my keyboard a little.
