Presents from Ruff stuff and other various suppliers. Yes, those are the second set of brake brackets. Doing a hydraulic handbrake.



Still waiting on a bunch. Time to go cut some brackets.

I'm hacking up a 14 bolt right now and I am about to order the disc brake set off ebay. Did you get the one from chevy_eater? If so how hard was it to assemble?

I got the one from Greatlakesoff road: you can find it here

http://www.ebay.com/itm/14-Bolt-Diff...127360&vxp=mtr

Unlike most other brackets, his isn't bent, he added spacers. I was able to take the drums off, and put on the complete brake system in about an hour and half. It was my first time doing it so im guessing its a pretty easy job.it also comes with the washers and bolts.

I literally just came back up from the shop from welding on the new calipers. All i did was cut the circle off of the brackets and weld on the arms to the bracket already on there.

I got the front seats/harness in, and I made the 4 hour drive to West plains for my dad to bend some tubing for my cage. He couldn't make the 100* bend for the a pillar, so i'll have to weld in a pre bent tube piece.

I also pulled out the 5.3 I bought and it's ready for me to pick it up. I didn't feel like pulling a trailer behind my 4 angry squirrels this weekend. I don't have any pictures of the weeks work except for what I hauled back this weekend. Bent tubing, and a wiring harness to play with.

I had to drive 30 minutes to the nearest dock so I could grab wheels and tires from Treadworthyfab.com
I'm very happy so far with my purchase.







It's hard to tell but i seperated the wheels and painted the wheel mount and the inside of the large part with bed liner, then i painted the rock ring part with a hammered dark bronze, it look good. I'll post brighter pictures later



While they were drying, I disassembled the front axle for the high steer arms and u joints installation.



Wife and I took the spare wires off, still need to loom it.

Wow, it's been almost two weeks since I last posted. Missouri has been getting some pretty bad weather so i've been out of the shop.

I have disassembled the rear axle, painted it and reassembled.
while I was at it, I finished welding the brackets on the inside for the parking brake. here is how it looks now.



Once I am ready to weld in the coil buckets, then i'll bed line it.

I also finally got the 1410 tcase rear yoke and the clocking ring int from northwestfab.com

They are installed.





I talked to Scott from TSoffroad.com and he is local to me, he will be making the last two bends of my cage I need. I think lol. hopefully i'll be able to get the cage finished in the next two weeks.

It's been a crazy last month. I finally moved into the new place. by day four of being moved in, not even fully unpacked, i started my actual jeep build.

As you can see i've gotten most the parts on the right.

I'm debating on buying motor mounts or building them. I still need shocks. The sm465 to ls conversion parts list, but other then that im ready to roll.



If anyone needs anything from a 4 cyl drivetrain pm me, i have radiator, engine, ecu, clutch, trans, tcase, rear driveshaft, and front and rear axles.

Stock, but I may cam or whatever someday. 5.3 vortec

Engine mounts burned in and links made. Using leaf spring mounts for the frame side. Cut and reinforce. Gotta redrill the holes to 3/4. It's comming along nicely, I don't know wether to mount the mounts on the frame side where it angles or underneath

I welded the mounts to the side of the frame. Made the frame side buckets for the coils. Re working the frame so I can keep good up travel and winch mount strength.
