JeepRocks86 TJ HP60, Shaved 14 Bolt, Coilovers, IROKs

EDIT:


The TJ has been stretched for about a year. It work wonderfully.
On 4/14/11 I picked up a set of Dana 60s. King Pin SnowFigher front from a 79 250. Rear is also out of a 79. Post 107 Starts the 60s build.


I am currently stretching the wheelbase of my TJ.

My TJ has progressed a lot over the years since I purchased it.
From Stock Daily Driver to modified daily driver to more modified daily driver to even more modified Trail Rig. I want to keep the jeep streetable, but have one that performs on the trail as well.

The day I bought it. Strait panels and no scratches.


First dirt.


First Stuck


4" Skyjacker and 33 Baja Claws


36s stock gears and axles


4.88s, Chromo front shafts, lockers


I have more older photos that I will post at a later date.
Custom belly up skid
RCI 15 Gallon Fuel cell with KORE ring
MORE front bumper to be straitened out and sold
Rear modified bumper from ebay that I bought a number of years ago
Currently the jeep has 35s for the street and 36s for the trail
Dana 30 front, Yukon Chromo shafts, Lockright, 4.88s
dana 44 rear, Alloy USA shafts, Detroit, 4.88s
4.5 RE springs
Shocks TBD
Clayton Long arm front
Custom rear Stretch in progress ~hopefully 5-7" with out a comp cut. (ballistic joints)
PSC steering box sitting on the garage floor

Future Plans (no particular order)...
Dana 60s
40s or 42s
re do the cage
new front bumper
sink the fuel tank into the floor with a custom box overhead for protection
different suspension mounts
3 link front
etc...

Recent favorite trail photos. Harlan March 2009. I bought a House in late 2008 so my Jeep trips have been drastically reduced.

Harlan Lions Den





Looking down into Lions den


Can opener trail


Current build:
Rear frame modification.
New rear control arms
new crossmember above the axle
cut the fenders
Hopefully I will get about 7" of stretch at most.

photobucket album for the stretch
Silver TJ Stretch pictures by JeepRocks86 - Photobucket

planned cut


How the bumper was


Cut corners (I will probably cut more out of the rear)




Rear crossmember (Factory vs my plan)





Frame clean up




The reason for the new crossmember

Initial Frame cut for the coil mounts.



Coil mount welds



Coil mount mock up






Frame welded up





3/16" reinforcement plate that goes on the inside of the frame on both sides.



one of the frame plates welded in



as it sits right now.



I haven't touched the jeep in two or three weeks. My new body mounts did come in this past week. I am planning on removing the 1" bodylift. It has been cold and I have been swamped with school work. After this semester I will have 2 400 level classes and one 500 level Engineering course for my Bachelors. My plan is to continue to get my MEng (masters of engineering) and possibly an MBA since UL has a joint program with the MEng/MBA.

Thanks, Maybe this weekend I will be able to do some more work. I figured it wasn't really build thread worthy since there are no one tons and 40s etc.

My plan was to grind them down smooth and weld over them again for a better looking weld. The weld penetration looks good, but I agree they look like crap.
