Yep. Here's mine. I think the MML will ease some of the angle.

Yeah I see the nice crack... I'm gonna keep looking for a replacement but possibly a shorter one. I could always modify my belly pan if I wanted.

Finally replaced my diff cover with the riddler cover I got a while back. Had it laying around since I painted it and moved. I needed to replace it so I can get good measurements between it and the gas tank once I move the axle back some more. The riddler cover is actually 1/8" less deep than the G2 meaning I'll have more clearance.

Not yet, last time I looked they were still waiting on tire carrier and rear corner guards. Bought two 6 ton jack stands from harbor freight, along with a welding helmet and gloves. Should hopefully get the welder in this week I hope.

Awesome. Are the new jack stands pretty tall? I think the 6 tons can raise up quite a bit.

The 6 tons go up to 24"... which was almost tall enough for me.

I wish I knew you were buying a welder, I just upgraded, so have a 170 amp MIG that can go to a new home cheap...

Yeah the jacks matched the other ones I have from autozone. Actually, louie4 is looking for a good welder. He posted one post before you.

I have a Harbor Freight 170 amp unit that actually works surprisingly well. I made a deal right before I skipped town and wound up with a 250 amp Millermatic and a 100 amp Plazma cutter.

Louie, if yer interested, give a shout, we can see what we can work out.

So after four weekends of not being home, and being on the road for works 3 days every week, I finally got some time in my garage with the jeep.


So i had already cut the old spring hangers off with a combination of my plasma cutter and angle grinder. Got every thing cleaned up and ready to weld. I had to cut about 3/4" off the bottom part of the body mount bracket in order to move the new hangers back 3".

Did a few measurements and welded up the new spring hangers. I painted them up after they cooled down with a first coat of black paint. I'll go back and put a second and third coat on just to have some protection. I also welded up my new rear shackle hangers as they come in two pieces. Once welded I had to modify them and the genright bumper in order to get things like i want. The hangers will be slightly lower than the original position which will give me a little more lift in the rear. This will be good since after the springs begin to sag, the front tends to sit higher anyways. I probably weld up the rear bumper tomorrow and shackle hangers tomorrow. Ruffstuff has some quality products, and my new Hobart welder is working nicely.

Looks great. Welds are killer. Did you reuse your spring hangers or buy new?

Was the bachelorette party this weekend?

I bought new ones, the old ones seemed to be thinner metal than these. The old ones were so destroyed where the bushings are that they were eating them.

Bachelorette party is three weekends from now. Lora wants me to have everything out of the living room by then, we will see.

LOL, if I didn't have a separate shop, I never would have a living room! There's more junk laying around than I can shake a stick at.

Those are some sharp welds!

Thanks, some were good, but not all. I wish I could make mine look like the genright welds that are on the d ring tabs. Yep, I don't think I'll have everything out of the room. And it's much harder to find room to store stuff without a two car garage.

So I did some more work today. First thing was to finish up the rear bumper. I welded the shackle hangers on. At that point I cleaned it up a little and it's ready for figment. I also marked up and cut out some support plates to sandwich rear cross member. I didn't get pictures of those but I'll get some this week. I also cut off the old spring perches on the 8.8. That took a decent amount of time and it was burning hot in the driveway where I did it. Here are some pics.
