ok...
it's been a while since the last update.

axles are finished.
rear drive shaft has been made.
decided not to run trac bars or steering stabilizer.
front hubs had to be drilled to fit the same size studs as the rear.
running 1/2" wheel spacers in the front for the time being. for some reason the h1 high steer arms i got didn't quite clear my h1 wheels and tires.


still needs done...
steering is sitting in raw pieces beside the jeep. (chev 1 ton TRE's and .125 dom)
soft brake lines need brackets welded on the frame.
front calipers need rebuilt.
shock mounts need welded on axle side and shocks installed.

that's it i think. if the stars line up i will drive it the week of the 4th of july.

there has not been any idea of pricing as of yet for them.

ok ladies and germs. i'm thinking of tearing into my dana 300 for a rebuild and a flip. i was hoping to do it and the nv4500 at the same time but i at an idle lately and need something to get my hands dirty on. any suggestions on cheap flips is appreciated. i am thinking of tackling this type of flip since it's on the cheap.

if i do this type of flip i will most likely use a straight linkage setup. i had thought about cables but the hassle and cost is just not that attractive4 to me.

i'm thinking that i'll have some pics of the teardown up within a week. it's that time of the year where it's everything blueberry around our house. the x-case will have to wait until all 30 pounds of blueberries have been turned into jams, pies, cobblers, syrup, and packed/sealed for the freezer.
