Springs are under it. They need to be adjusted from side to side a little. I realized I made my lower arms a tad too long so my springs are arched more than I wanted, but I will have to see how it performs, or maybe shorten them later.

Upper arms are tacked together (not going to make the mistake of the lowers again)
Frame supports to go over where I cut into the frame are together, I just need to grind them smooth.
Looks like my rear drive shaft will be between 26and 27"
I also ordered lower shock mounts today and they should be here tomorrow.

As it sits right now, It's pretty much 101" on the dot.

Tacked uppers


frame supports


The shark fin will be removed, I needed somewhere to clamp the ground






Hanging by the springs


No jack stands



I've got 2 buddies coming over tonight. I hope they can knock out the motor mounts this evening. I have to remove my MML. I have 1/4" between my Air compressor filter and the hood and <1/2" of room between the top fittings and the hood.

I'm going to pick up pizza right now haha.

Well I should have moved them further back.... I will have to measure compared to a factory coiled TJ.

SHhhh don't tell anyone i'm on the computer right now. It's 1255am and my buddies are doing the motor mounts shhhh

I see what you mean about should have moved them further back. From the second picture it looks like they will miss the bumpstops when you compress it completely. Maybe it's just the angle though.

If you went any farther back you'd have to rebuild the whole rear frame section (I think). It might not be as bad as I am picturing though.
Maybe you could move it back and run shorter coils so you can drop the upper bucket down a hair on that section of frame?

My plan is to eventually build a back half kit. I though about building it this time, but I really didn't want to do that right now even though I probably should have.

My plan is to shorten the lower arms. Hopefully I can just cut the weld off the threaded insert and then shorten the arm. We'll have to see.

Last night, or rather early this morning I got the rear bumper on and the other upper link is in place.

I had to enlarge the holes for the bumper mounts, but all 12 bolts work fit.

Started building a tire carrier today. It's nothing fancy as it just slides into the receiver hitch. It does come out of the receiver goes up about 4" and then goes back 6" towards the body which allows for the tire to be closer to the body.

Tire carrier so far. I'm planning on probably putting reinforcement plates in to add some strength.



Testing for the shock mounts. I know the springs have one heck of a rake, I'm going to have to shorten the lower arms an inch or so to fix that which would probably put the wheel base at 99.5-100" with the front in it's current position. If I push the front out I should be able to get a little more stretch, but that would require a different steering setup.


Lower shock mounts. The replacement brake lines for both sides are sitting in the back seat of my suburban.

So I didn't get much work done on the jeep, I've been looking for a puppy. I found one and I'm driving to Northern IN to get it Thursday.

It won't do well in the heat, but during the none hot months, she will be a wheeling companion.

It's one of the breeder's photos.

haven't tackled the brakes yet. They should be the easy part.

Last night I built the tire carrier, welded the upper arms and painted the upper arms.

Still on my list of must do's before next weekend's Harlan Trip.

One more coat of paint on the upper arms
Rear brakes
Evap system
I would like to mount the fuel cell as well.
