this will be a well documented build with as many pictures as i can put up.

this jeep is being built to be used and make trips to rausch creek, tar hollow, and other offroad parks. along with reed road near me and all of the open pits around me. and like stated before i will make sure i take pictures.

i honestly cannot say which number jeep this is because i have almost lost track. i will figure out another day how many i have had and post it up. but i know its close to 20 :)

stay tuned for this awesome build!!!!!:cheers2::thumbsup:

Digging your build so far! What's the benefit of the durango steering gear over the cherokee gear?

thanks!!!!! box is stronger, gears are numerically bigger i believe for turning. i did alot of research and it seemed like a win win situation. the cherokee box that was in the jeep was toast so it had to be upgraded anyway.

More info on that durango box? Year what all durango parts you need new holes drilled? And is it 3 or 4 ears? It looks good! That rear hatch makes it look a lot cleaner

doe the durango box its a bolt in box. you re use the same three bolts from you old box, both power steering lines work fine, and you have to re use your pitman arm even if it does come with one. you need a 99 durango 5.2 box. thanks, the jeep is coming along. i don't plan on putting stock flares since im gonna go with armer and metal tube flares built in. today ill be doing the water pump making sure its all mechanically sound before i start ordering parts.

glen6251 11-04-2012 11:44 PM

i will be ordering lots of the lift parts this week!!!!!
stay tuned for whats ordered and installed.

glen6251 11-08-2012 06:46 PM

6.5 rough country long arm
steering stabilizer
sye and drive shaft
