Got the Jeep back from my buddy's shop,

Axle re-adjusted



Skid plate mount



Skidplate modified



One day I'll learn to weld....next step is to remove a few things and re-paint...don't want to lose my clean and shiny image...then get the driveshafts made.

Don't you hate the finger prints, grease smears and dust!! I finally rolled out my Scrambler project to make room on the hoist for my son's clutch job a couple of days ago. The next thing that happened was the wind kicked up and it rained cats and dogs... It was under a carport and that helped but still- it's annoying to see that hard work covered in - well, you know ;-)

Looks great. I like the skid plate. I need to make my own- including mounts and bracktry.

Taylor said she wanted to be on the computer.....Shocks re-installed sans the white color. Front drive shaft is at 8 degrees, do I need a cv? the rear ended up at 19 degrees...

With your setup, CV would be appropriate.

Is that a heater/AC vent in your garage? ...........

....I'm not smart, but I can lift heavy things.......

Fill out your PROFILE, and don't forget to look in the FAQ for writeups

You're running a SYE already and that looks like a short and steep driveshaft already pointing up to the t-case. The angles are all wrong for a slip-yoke setup anyways. I'ld go CV for sure. That Vette engine will tear out most universals anyways so I'd want to do-it-right back there for sure. The drive shaft will be the weak link in the rear between that 8.8 and the t-case. I'd take spare parts along with me on long trips. ;-)

Still drooling, too.

CV for the rear sure, I was mainly asking about the front @ 9 degrees...

The vents are just that, vents to the outside, I would like to "condtion" the air in the garage to about 80 degrees in summer and even added a little tonnage when I had my system replaced 2 years ago. I just have not gotten around to that project.

Driveshaft place said Friday morning they would call on Friday afternoon when done. No call, so you could say I got the shaft (s), but not technically....

I did get the shifter in.....






Next up is to get the tub over to the body shop and work on wiring, fuel and brake lines.

As Sergeant Shultz said " I know nosing"

For you guys with the ford 8.8 rearends, what did you use for rear brake hoses with a 4" lift? Having trouble find extended hoses 3 to 6 inches longer without buying the high dollar steel braided ones.

Hi Rick;

Awesome project! The attention to detail is just amazing.

How long is your Lokar shifter?
For your drive shaft did you go with double cardan?
What are you doing for the Tcase shifter?

Thanks!

Kurt

I thought you were supposed to measure for driveshafts only after the sprung weight is back on the chassis? Just wondering, i am in the same boat myself. Frame up restore, need driveshafts, body is not back on my frame yet.

is there any advantage to having the t-case clocked that much? seems like you'd want that skid plate up higher.
