Rolled the rear axle under her today. Not too bad with the H2s

finally got the powerplant setting in place with its weight on the Jeep! gonna put in a 1" BL before finalizing everything in place.




Here is a shot showing the oilpan in relation to the frame-really happy with this given how tall the 4BT is!

Its slow going (couple of ruptured discs) but I've managed to do a few things. Trying to decide between DJ or CJ grill (leaning toward DJ for uniqueness and ROOOooooOOOM!) Put on 1" BL (much easier than anticipated). Tinkering on front axle, got pass knuckle milled/drilled/tapped for Hi-steer just in case.

I'm all for the operation, docs say no because of their location. Risk/benefit ratio not favorable.

Check out the massive amount of room the DJ gives me! Radiator, A/C condenser, and air-air intercooler should have ample space! Seems like ~4" difference between the two grills. I think a 6BT Cummins could be installed with the DJ grill without hacking the firewall!

A few more pieces of the puzzle coming together

Spartan locker for Dana 44 HP



refurb'ed axle shafts with new Spicer joints





I think next I'll try to install the ring and pinion After that the rest of the axle assembly I could do in my sleep.

I had a little snafu with one of my new stub shaft's snap ring groove being WAY off (too far from end of shaft). During the conversation with the selling vendor he told me they'd begun to not even put the snap rings on the outer end of their rig's stub shafts and were getting longer joint life. Anyone else heard of or not running the snap rings themselves?
