Thanks. For some reason I thought you made yours. I must have not read very closely. You put extra plate between the tube and the frame right?

I could bend some up but i only have a 1 3/4" die for my bender. The WFO hoops are 1 1/2". I did add some plate to my frame. I wanted to spread the load more. I've seen pictures of hoops that have ripped holes in the frame because they just welded straight to it without reinforcing the frame.

Yeah, one day I hope to have more tools to fab up more stuff. I'm definitely going to look into the WFO's. thanks for the heads up. I guess my next step is to order some parts. Nice ride also, I've been following your thread for awhile.

Looking good. You are close to having the jeep back on the road. I wish I could say the same...

Also removed the riddler diff cover from my old axle to paint and install on the new axle. I'm thinking of painting the diff cover a dark green along with the new rough stuff steer kit. Should match the body fairly close. Done about all I'm gonna do tonight. Orders a few things:

New steering shaft since mine was toast.
MORE steering box support
New lower bearing for steering column.

Waiting on the shocks and hoops until I get everything bolted up.

Riddler cover before being painted, and after being painted and installed. Ready to bolt in tomorrow. Going to let the paint fully dry.

Decided not to wait. Had some nice warm sunlight that dried the paint quicker than I thought. Went ahead and bolted it in. Slid the new G2 30 spline shafts and bolted up new hubs. Sway bar is connected as well. Tomorrow, going to trade the old calipers for a remanufactured set. Also need some brake fluid, diff fluid, and 1.25" socket for the genright pitman arm.

Good morning so far. Got the brakes installed after I picked up some remanufactured calipers. Installed new rotors and pads. Hooked shocks up temporarily to see what I need later. Torqued everything down nice and tight. Installed the wheels temporarily to measure for drag link and tie rod. I need a deep socket to install the nut for the new pitman arm, but picked up a standard socket and it didn't fit even after I measure the nut. Have to go back and trade in for metric. Taking the nut with me this time.

Also cleaned up the garage a little since it was killing me to have to climb over stuff.

Yeah me to, I'm trying to figure out the best way to measure everything by myself. I'm a little worried about them hitting the diff at full turn and also hitting the frame. We will see. I'll notch the frame if needed and possibly the diff cover. I'm also going to have to move the bump stops forward an inch or two.

I installed my new lower steering column bearing. I think I still need to replace the top cause I still have some play in my steering wheel. The lower plastic retainer was cracked.

I installed the new steering shaft and adjusted the steering to get everything centered. Then I tightened down the new pitman arm.

I measure for the steering which was tricky by myself. First I got the tires line up and adjusted a 1/8" toe in. Then I set up the Heims where I wanted them to have enough threads to be strong, but still leave room for adjustment. Measure and cut the ruffstuff DOM to my measurement. I measured a few times just to make sure. Welded the bungs in and primed it. I only got the tie rod done today. I'll get the drag link after I set up the tie rod.
