Nope it was a pain in the ***, it was like it was just a hair to long but I did get it installed. As for the hoops I love them just burnt them in today (there only bolted on in the pic)!

It was a hair long but I made it work. The tolerances must be low on that part. I was looking at those and a few others for in the future. I'm hoping that My shocks will still work as is for awhile.

More progress.


This morning I got half of my steering bolted up. It's pretty beefy but I may have some clearance issues with the diff cover. Also measured and cut the drag link and welded in the bungs. Notice the bung how it had a section that slides into the tube for support. Next is to paint the drag link and bolt it in. After that I need to bleed the brakes with the help of my lovely wife, and it should be drivable at that point. I still need to wire up the front locker but I'm going to require the lights and the rear when I do this. Main thing is to get it on the road right now.

Your welds are amazing. Now when will you have it back on the road?

I'm going to drive my jeep around all week.

Need to paint the drag link and install it, and bleed the brakes, and it should be drivable again.

Drag link painted and installed. Steering works great, cranked it up, and did some full turn tests sitting still. Nothing hitting at this point. About quarter inch or more between diff cover and tie rod. Just need to bleed the brakes

Awesome.

How does the Gen Right pitman arm work? Can you turn the tires lock to lock?

It works great. Everything is close to parallel with it and it also appears nothing is going to hit when flexed. We will see though.

Turned it lock to lock, and you can tell a difference with the more support bar, and the new bracket. I hear a lot of wining from the steering box, but I couldn't feel any give when turning compares to the stock setup.

Got it back on the road. I used a one person. Brake bleed system that doesn't work to well but it is sufficient to get it on the road. Still will get the wife to help second check and bleed again. Steering feels good, don't feel anything from the gears at this point. Sway bar works good in the neighborhood. Need to take it down the road and find some place to flex the front and see where I'm going to need to put my bump stops and possibly cutout out some frame for the drag link on the passenger side if necessary.

Drove the jeep around town and got the dreaded death wobble. I checked everything from hubs to all the steering components. Found the ball joints had settled a little and I could crank a quarter turn on all the nuts.

Also found that my rear pinion was loose and had some lateral movement...not good. Took the whole rear end to pieces and after hammering away to get the outer pinion bearing which was seized on, I didn't really find much. I went ahead and replaced the inner and outer bearings but after putting it all back together, I found that the pinion nut was bottoming out on the threads and therefore not pushing the bearings all the way into the cups. I used Two washers and managed to pull the bearings into the races to get the right preload. Not sure what happened here. But it feels a lot better now.
