Been busy with other things lately

So far today...

Put these on my first gen cummins today.

http://www.kmdgarage.com/quantum-6-led-light-bar/

You can get them for 99 through pirate

Wired in a relay and such. I live away from the city so extra light is always good.

Only LEDs


LEDs and headlights


Headlights


From the front




Also pulled bearings out of the front spindles and rear hubs as well as sanding them down. Not much but needs to get done.

Next going to play with front control arms and such.

So been a little bit. Today was working on my father in laws trailer putting a new tongue on it and ran out of gas. Lets just say he used to not believe in a pin lock or chains. Said he was in a hurry. Luckily no one was hurt and the trailer was the only damage luckily.



Anyway I'm in the garage taking measurements on a 4 link calculator for the front. Not really sure what anti squat I should e shooting for in the front. I'm assuming near 100% or a little less to keep it nice and planted.

Uppers will be triangulated to center the axle.

So I played with mounting location ideas last night for hours.

Trying to get an upper triangulated suspension may not fit for the low ride height I'm looking for. If I triangulate the lowers that puts the mounts under the oil pan to have 32" lowers (2x shock travel).

I can do uppers triangulated but the axle side upper mounts in relation to the frame are at 20* in relation to the truss which should be 40* in relation to one another. Is that enough. Their separation is 14" apart. The lowers will also be angled out but not enough to center the axle like that.

Looking for help. Thanks

I'm no expert, but why not do a 3-link in front with a panhard bar? I realize you're trying to get away from a TB, but if I'm picturing it in my head correctly, I don't really see any other solution.

If you aren't content with that, google "Project Dooky's Revenge." It's a build over on pirate you may have seen before... I know he did a triangulated 4-link in the front and had major clearance issues, but eventually found a way to make it work. IIRC, he also has an LQ9 (?) 6.0 v8 in it, so I'm not sure how much it'll help you. I know his main clearance issues were with his front driveshaft and oil pan, FWIW.

I have read through his build as well as a few others. Will be doing 2 piece front shaft.

I think I may have it working but will be close.

I am going to cut the front frame off again for more up travel and build it from Dom instead.

Anyway here's how the trailer turned out

So good news... The sign went in the yard on Sunday went online Monday afternoon and Thursday I had 2 full price offers on the house.

Anyway I have 30 days to get the jeep out of the garage. Oops

Next weekend is going to be a throw down weekend front arms hubs and scrap tube between axles and frame to hold it up.

I inherited a truck and trailer this past weekend. My uncle passed away about a week ago and he left it to me. I have been trying to buy the truck from him for 5 years... He wouldn't sell it. I am really going to miss him.

04 quad cab 2500 6 speed with a cummins of course with a little over 77k miles.
20' deck over goose. May lengthen the trailer in the future to fit 2.

Sorry for your loss, now you see why he would not sell it to you all those years.

Now get back to work on that Jeep. It's been way to long. eeking:
