Drilling holes for frame rail brackets...





Rear coil mounts/bumpstops welded to the frame...



Frame painted...






Frame rail brackets bolted on for good...



Reid racing knuckles on the front (still have to gear)...




Axles and lower control arms under it to measure for the upper control arms...







That should keep you guys busy for a little while! lol, and remember if im not updating my build that just means im building my build. Got a lot of late nights behind me only to work more late nights in the near future but its starting to look like a jeep again.

What kind of clearance do you have between the front lowers and the frame during uptravel?

Sorry to sound dumb, but what are frame rail brackets used for?

BallerJeep - the Rock Krawler kits use the frame rail brackets to mount the contol arms because you cut off all the stock control arm mounts. It takes all the guess work out of positioning the contol arm mounts like some kits would have you do, perfect instant centers amd control arm positioning everytime. Also part of the kits is a 1/4 belly pan skid that ties both brackets together.

The front lowers tuck inside the frame quite a bit, i have about 7" of up travel from where the axle is sitting in the last few pics before anything comes close to contact.
