FINALLY got some time at the shop to get some things done. robby bobby got the tires mounted for me while i was at work today, then we threw in a coil spacer up front and 2 leafs into the leaf back in the rear, mounted up the tsl's, put in the front shocks, and then i spend 2 hours cleaning the shop, since nobody else will. its time for a beer. enjoy the pics
So what all is left? I see steering, hubs, I'm assuming drive shafts. What's the list consist of?
-steering. to be decided, the jeep is currently set up for hydro assist, but i have collected some parts for a single ended full hydro system.
-doubler needs tig welded
-driveshafts need recut
-rear shocks (no biggie)
-i have another 60 front that has yukon shafts, drive flanges, etc, that will get transferred to the bare 60 thats in the jeep
-rear needs geared to match the front (4.56), or both will get geared into the 5.xx's money depending
-trim bumpers and sliders to accommodate for the 42's
got a smokin deal on a spratan locker for the front from baseline 4x4 thru pirate, thats in the mail hopefully to be delivered by the weekend. will also be ordering the parts to do the rear next week. for that im getting yukon 4340 chromoly 35 spline shafts and a master install kit to put in the gears and full spool i already have. last night i got the donor axle ripped apart and the parts ready to swap into the jeep. these shafts are also yukon chromoly and the neat thing about gm dana 60 fronts is that you can use a dana 70 side outter stub shaft which is an upgrade from 30 to 35 spline.
dana 30 stub next to dana 60 35 spline chromoly stub (same size as dana 70)
I'm going up this weekend with a small group by I won't have my jeep up till may or June. I would like to get to Rausch, aoaa, and big dogs with my jeep before the end of June, hopefully we can work something out it's been forever since we've gone wheeling
