Finished my trans mount and raised the drivetrain allllllll the way up to get it flat with the frame. had to cut a small section of the tub reinforcement that hit the t case, enlarge the shifter hole up top, and beat the section near the end of the tranny hump to clear the driveshaft. I did a quick fix on the exhaust because i wanted to drive it today. i am going to re route it under the oilpan and around so i can do the skid and incorporate a skid over the oilpan.

Tcase started doing this stupid loud whirring/whining noise. Sounds like the planetaries are spinning around. Hopefully a fresh fluid change will stop it because it is really really loud on the freeway.

Recently sold my geared axles for ease of swapping the 8.8 in. got the 4.10 geared d30 in and the 8.8 in.

So front is all buttoned up. I just need to re-adjust my draglink and rotate the clamp for the tierod. It hits the springs at full droop. Lame. the stock perches were a lot taller wich i thought was stupid.... apparently this was for clearance on the springs lol.

Oh and figured out my driveshaft uses 1330 joints. So i can just get the plain explorer adapter flange. Kinda cool i got some extra beef. And my pinion is too high in these pics. I kinda just guessed and tacked the perches on when i set it in there and well i went a tad too high.


Oh and another note... My new phone takes awesome pictures.

Also forgot to update i sold my 33s, and bought 5 35x12.5x15 Super swamper SSRS for 350bucks with rims. spare is pretty much brand new as well. Put those on and jeep looks mucho better.






And been really busy with my dad on the Hayabusa sandrail. We are taking it on its maiden voyage on new years day to sand mountain. Fab is finally all done and now we just need to re assemble. I finished all the wiring tonight and we got all the parts painted.



Wiring was a pain....

I had the same problem when I swapped in a different Dana 30 with my homemade low profile spring perches. I had to do a tie rod flip to keep it out of the springs.

Those look awesome! Did you have to cut any sheet metal out of the rockers to make those work? Do they tie into the body mounts?

Well my drivers side pinch seam was all folded under and bent from rocks already. I just had to take a deadblow mallet and bend the entire pinch seam back the same angle as the rocker and it squeezed in there. I made some backing plates for the bolts with the middle 3 tied together, and made a floor plate that attaches to the bottom of the rock sliders. No ties to the body mount and no movement from them either. And i frequently hit them hard.

Redrilled my rear spring perches about 2 inches back for a quick and dirty rear stretch. I have a pair of xj springs that are going under it here soon.

Cut the fenders up just kinda wingin it and it came out perfect.

made a quick prairie city run after work...


one of my fav spots got modified a touch. It is now redicuhard.











Oh and pay no attention to the shocks that are dangling. They have no lower mounts :haha:

Went to the super secret spot.

The rain washed out a bunch and made the hard spots harder.

Teetered reallllll bad in this spot. I had my buddy holding a strap or I would have went over.




and after. Was able to back out of it.

Been rollin around without a skid.

Finally got around to building one. Its 3/16 with 1x1 1/8 wall angle iron. I used some 3/16 flatbar for small spacers to make up for the factory nutserts sticking down below the frame and to give a little more room around the tranny crossmember bolts. Should be pretty stout.

Took the buggy, quad and the jeep out a few days ago First real test of the sandrail. And well it was about 10-15minutes of anus clentching and white knuckled hell raising. Broke both axleshafts. They were beveled and welded over about a week and a half short spurts at a time but it was just too much. We need to step it up to somethin bigger anyways. For now it looks like we might be sleeving the whole shaft and plug welding it in about 10 spots, lowering the throttle stop from 3/4 to 1/2 or so and test the rest of it that way.

Just got a few pics. I didnt have the rollcage mount for the gopro done in time, and the buggy didnt last long enough to rig something up :haha: This thing is so stupid fast it is not even funny





Here is some random gopro footage on the quad running around in the back part near the river.
