Just curious. Thanks
The three speed transmission was set up that way before I bought it. To be honest I not sure what I would rather have, auto or manual? This is my first Jeep and I almost didn't by it because of the auto transmission but it was a really good deal and I was looking for something cheap because I was going to modify it anyway. My next major project will be to put a LS1,2 or 3 in and I will need to change the transmission. I have friends that run NV4500 and other that run 4l60 or 4l80's. I will just cross that bridge when I get to it.

The SOA kit was also on the Jeep when I got it but the springs are Rubicon Express 1.5", I would say the over all lift is 6-7", I cleared 37" with no problem.

Hope this answered your question, let me know if you have any others. I have taken a lot of detailed pictures along this build, I've only posted a fraction of what I have taken.

The picture I posted is a before picutre with the SOA sitting on 37" Krawlers

Sorry, not sure what type of shift kit it has but it has a good/harsh jerk when it shifts.

The only thing I really don't like about the transmission is that there is no over drive and with 4.88 I'm max'ed out at 50-55mph.

I think that has more to do with 37"s than the gears. I'll be shutting up now

I installed the front link brackets, made the links, tie rod, drag link, and trac bar, then mounted everything for mock up.

So on the rear were you able to get the full 5" stretch with the ext tank? I got just under 4 with cycling suspension on mine just curious I have an 8.8 and wasn't sure if that was the cause. I wanted to go the route you are going but it was a bit to much for me but it looks great! The gen right stuff is top quality.

Thanks,

The "mate" through me off, I had to do a double take that you are in Australia!

I love the internet and JF.com, how else could someone from Australia be checking out my Jeep build.

That's awesome!

Thank you,

I didn't use the EXT tank, I used the COMP tank. I was able to stretch it 6" but have room to spare with the D44. Someday I might go with a D60 and should have room without doing anything to the links.

I ran into a little clearance issue with the frame and drag link. I just notched the frame a little and now the issue is gone.

Shock hoops and cross over bar are tacked into place and just checking the final fitment and cycling the suspension.

Next I will be working on the bump stop can's and finishing the belly/engine skid plate.

To Be Continued.........

make sure to turn your steering from lock to lock at full bump. your cut-out looks a bit tight.

do you get any binding between the draglink and tie-rod at bump with the drag mounted behind the tierod on the steering arm?

looks like the axle-trackbar mount might offend as well when the passenger side is high and the driver side is at full droop. i had to lower mine significantly as well as shave an inch off the bottom of the framerails.

continuous tacks are fine on the frame with such thin material but not needed on the axle tubing and links. there's enough meat to take the heat.

how much lower then the bottom of the framerail does the rear linkmount crossmember on the frame-end hang?

looking good. wish my frame was as clean.

Would continuous tacks be as strong as a normal weld pool? I've never considered doing this but it definitely looks good.

It has to do with speed also, I have a continuous pool as I'm welding. Personally I've never had one of my welding break, pull a part or crack?

I'm not a professional welder but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
