Winter game plan time...I really wanted to build a new rear suspension myself. But because of my unpredictable busy job I do not want to get stuck on jack stands and have plenty of work already. So as of now I'm just going to buy the longer rock krawler arms and hopefully in a year or so buy another jeep and build a juggy.


Evo inner sleeve/gussets on the front 44 -Have
Fuel cell R2162A GenRight ring stock pump (sinking it into the floor to the bottom of the new frame)-Have
Atx backhalf kit and build new bumper-Have
Rock Krawler stretch arms (7" or 10")
New shocks (12" or 14") rear and front
Rear anti rock
Corner armor
Wheel spacers(not sure what width)
Will figure out brakes and E brake as I go. Maybe use LJ e break cable?
Get Tom woods drive shaft re-lengthened
Full Roll cage.
New rockers(possibly boatsides)
I'm sure I'm missing some stuff.

Im still undecided if I should stretch out 7" to net around 100" wheel base or 10" to net 103". I think I'm going to go with 7" to hit 100".

I'm also undecided if I'm going to use 12" or 14" bilstein travel shocks in the rear. I think I'm going to use 14"s in the front but not sure how hard it's going to be to fit in them rear.

Getting rid of the rock krawler front track bar and drop pitman arm and replacing it with currie is a very good possibility due to possible Clearence issues.

I would like to drop some extra coin and bump up to 37 mtr's but have a whole lot stuff to worry about before then. If I keep my 35's I'm planning on getting smaller springs. With the existing 3.5 inch RK springs I have a few inches of fender clearence left when I hit the bump stops.

Lower, longer, and wider!

Any and all input/criticism is appreciated.

The LJ cable sounds like a good plan if you do the 10" stretch... I'm not too sure about the 7" though. Seems like you would have a lil too much play in the cable unless you could shorten it somehow. I could be completely wrong though.

Saw a TJ recently with some cool looking boatside rockers from Offroad Evolution. Might be worth checking out.

I think I might go with the 10" stretch. 103" wheel base should complement 37's nicely.

I really like the evo ones but I did find these a few 100 bucks cheaper.

Thats not a terrible price for those , and it will save a lot of cutting , bending then welding it back up when your done . Thats a moot point if you have access to a large brake .

Updates......

Fuel cell is in. I plan on recessing it into the floor but not until the back half gets done.

Man look at that *** tons of room! After the gas tank was removed in noticed the bent shock..

The brown truck came. The rear stretch is coming together...or at least the parts for it

Huge!

Some wheeling yesterday.

And a new dent to prove it.

Read through your whole build. Love your plans and love what you've done. Sick looking jeep man. What's the word on the large purchase?

Thanks. I finally grew some balls and pulled the trigger on 4 14" ORI's and a duel fill kit.

Wow great looking build man, can't wait to see those seats in. Any cage plans?

Also FYI if you ever have to remove adhesive again use gas, works like a charm

Thanks.

Haha the first thing I tried was gas. A **** ton of it.

I just purchased a 1 3/4 die for my buddy's bender. We also flipped it vertical and installed a pneumatic Harbor fright jack. I am going to build a cage next.
