The driver side shock mount is welded into the frame as is the frame support on the top of the frame. Had to come inside to take a break.

Looks like the shocks will be at 20" at ride height.

Both shock mounts are welded in and have the first coat of paint. The welds splattered a little bit because, well, I didn't prep well enough and didn't get all of the foreign matter aka paint off. Oh well.

Well... It's coming along nicely. I'm about to go pick up some parts and go out and work on it.

I Wish I would have made the shock mounts in the rear higher so I could run the longer shock I wanted with out having to lower the axle ends like I did. 2" Higher for the uppers and the lowers would have not hung lower than the axle tubes. Currently they will be hanging no lower than the lower control arms.

I would post up more photos, but my photobucket isn't allowing me to upload.

It's a Mountain offroad HC bumper. Eventually when I get time, I'm going to straiten out the bent portion and sell it. I added the over sized tube which was free.

Thanks, There is still a lot to do. I have been lazy the past few weeks since my Harlan trip and I have been helping a buddy put the AtoZ cage in his TJ.

My new list
Re do the rear shock mounts upper and lower. Raise the uppers upwards of 6-7" to allow me to rotate the lower mounts up 2" so they are parallel to the ground and also allow me to run either a 13 or 15" travel shock. Currently the rear has 11" travel shocks on it.
I am going to use the F250 towers in the front as well so I can put my 11" travel shocks up front because my front shocks have been worn out for years.

Cut the rear floor out so I can mount the fuel cell between the frame rails.
build a box over the fuel cell to protect it as well as so I have a place for tools, spare parts, etc.

build a spare tire carrier so I can put the spare in the back seat area. That spare on the back is really a blind spot and I would like to move that weight forward. Last July was the most recent time I needed a spare and It was back at camp so had to send someone to go get it which took over an hour.

build a new front bumper. I am going to build one similar to the Sniper fab bumper but probably out of 1/4" steel on top and use all of the mounting holes up top.

Along with this stuff, my trailer is in need of some odds and ends as well as my 95 suburban needs the AC replaced (Compressor locked up) which is what I am going to do right now.

This weekend we are going to Golden mountain TN, so AC in the tow rig would be very nice.

I've also got a PSC steering box tapped for hydro assist sitting in my garage. I won't run the hydro with the dana 30, but it will give me more steering strength.

I won't put it on until I upgrade my steering. My plan is to build something similar to the JCR offroad knuckle over or knuckle under depending on the steering angles.

I broke a shock mount (my weld before was a last min thing before last month's run and I basically only welded one side), bent a shock, and broke a brake line.

I replaced the rear line with a TJ front line and a 20" piece of hard line.

Photos later.
