Took measurements to see how to run my shocks. It looks like I will be able to run 13" travel shocks front and rear with my 4.5" RE coils.

I plan on using the Ford F250 mounts front and rear.

I got a good deal on a pair of 11" BBCS and pair of 13" BBCS I may end up selling the 11s and buy 13s.

I will have to cut out the rear upper mounts to run the new ones. To run the 13s in the rear I will need to raise the upper mount 6.5" from it's current location. This will also allow me to raise the lower mount up about an inch to get it parallel to the ground.

Did some work over the weekend. I am now running a 13" travel shock in the rear on the driver side. The passenger side is tonight.

I also lengthened the wheel base a little as well.

We're headed to Harlan this coming weekend if anyone is interested in Joining.

maybe tomorrow I'll get some photos. The driver side is pretty much finished. It needs paint.

Today I cut the old upper shock mounts out. I would have worked more but, I ran out of welding wire.

Well I wasn't able to get the same wire because of work and then school.

My JCR over knuckle steering and axle side track bar bracket came in today. So much for it taking 15+ Days. I believe it shipped monday.

I wanted to go in the garage this evening, but I have too much school work right now.

Currently the passenger side has a huge notch in it for where the mount should go.

It will have to be welded up by friday because it's getting put on a trailer and taken to Harlan friday.

it's not super pretty but it will work.



That is the full 14" of the F250 shock tower. I cut the angle out of it and used filler metal to fill in the remaining triangle. The lower mounts are parallel to the ground.

I did some more work last night. test fit the tires and flexed them out. Had to grind a little bit on the fenders to clear the extra .5" of wheel base. Also did some painting and other stuff.

I was only able to work for about 2 hours because I didn't get out to the garage until after 12am and worked until a little past 2am. School has to come first...

I still have lots to do before my trip today.

Overall the weekend wasn't very good.
I broke my short side dana 30 chromo shaft at the carrier on the first rock, which wasn't even a hard spot. I'm thinking the shaft may have already been cracked or previously stressed which is why it may have broken.
After pulling the axle out, draining the diff, and pounding the U joint out, we were unable to get the part out of the differential without removing the carrier. I did run the rest of the day with just the stub shaft and 3 wheel drive.

The longer shocks did really help the jeep ride on the trail at higher speeds. At some points I was able to hit 35mph on some of the gravel wash out roads at Harlan. The 4 door basically stock JK and my buddy with a short arm TJ were unable to keep up with myself and the other guy in our group with long arms and air shocks up front.



I'm supposed to be getting a phone call on where to send my axle shaft for a replacement.
