i know its been a while since i've been up but here's some catching it

just got back from uwharrie and came back with some carnage. broke a tie rod and a transmission mound and had to weld the tie rod back together right in the middle of kodak rock.

the new tie rod should be in here anyday.

also i put on a AA transfer case shifter bracket, and took my back seat out and am thinking about mounting a spare in the back or a lock box

about 2 weeks ago i noticed my power steering box was leaking bad so i decided this thing has given me 130000 miles time to get a new box.

instead of using a jeep tj gear box, i heard you can use a gear box of a dodge durango with the 318 and 4x4. guess what. it works. bolted up like it was meant to be there. now my power steering is a lot stronger and it turns sharper.

its been a while

ok its been a while since i've updated my build thread so i thought i would take some time to kind of talk about everything i've done and what i'm doing soon

i got tired of my bumper so i took it off.


first thing is i bent my control arm brackets on my dana 30. i don't have much welding experience. but i gave it a shot anyway. i bought some 1/4 inch rusty's lca brackets. grinded the old ones off. cleaned it real nice and welded them suckers on.



didn't get a good picture but the bead is really nice for someone whose welded as little as i have.

got some rusty's adjustable lower control arms used from a buddy.

then i got my hands on a deeal on a set of tires. now i'm probably gonna get flamed for doing this but this is only temporary til i get my front and rear end up in. but i didn't wanna lose this deal and then let the tires sit and rot away.

got 4 irok radial 36's 13.50 15's with about 80% tread for 800 dollars.




i got really bored in shop class and decided to go ahead and cut my fendors off at the front and give it a flatty look. i also added some truck lights for turn signals. at first they didnt work. they made the blinker blink fast. so i used my trusty jeep forum acount and found that cutting your blinker relay in a certain location will alow the blinker to work normaly with an odd resistance going through the relay.





and i went ahead and put them on. now remember i only have 3.07 factory gears in factory axles, this is only for daily driver use until i get my stuff together.

Got my hands on a ford 9 inch already bracketed for a tj out of a 70's bronco.

broken ring gear tooth, needs brake work, new seals and a nice sandblasting and painting, and the list goes on

anyway here it is.


i'm on the market for a 44 front to match it and i'm thinking about going with 4.56 gears. the rear has posi but i'm probably gonna lunchbox lock the front. (whenever i can find one) gonna keep factory arm geometry. i was hoping to go 4 link double triangulating the rear but the brackets are already on the rear end. i have a place in my home town that builds custom drive shafts.
and i'm also planning on stretching each end 2 inches. and i'm gonna build a custom steering set up for the 44 whenever i get it.
