Got a bit more cutting done yesterday. Chopped off the factory body mount perches, Genright's are on thier way, FedEx says Thursday. I didn't grind it all down flush and smooth yet because I have to use the previous exact locations to mock up the new ones.
For anyone that's wondering, I wanted a 2" body lift that was full poly replacement, not 'add-a-puck', and couldn't really find a solution I liked. I landed up with a Daystar 1" full poly replacement and this kit from GR: http://www.genright.com/ProductInfo....ductid=BMT4001
That takes care of the sides, the farthest rear mounts I can pretty much do as I wish with, as I'm basically custom fabricating that entire rear crossmember at this point, and centering the gas tank, so that I can run true duals. As far as that second most rear crossmember that holds 2 body mounts inside the framerails, I've got one of my top men (whom works as a welder and has shop access breaks, presses, waterjet, etc.) working on a schematic for the 1" we have to make up on that. The front grille pedistal mount should kind of work itself out, with the CJ grille being 1" overall taller, I should just have to chop off 1" from the Daystar mount with the old bandsaw.
So, that's where I'm at. Waiting on my welder buddy to get those frame replacement sections I mocked up in cardboard back to me in 1/4" plate steel form.
Picked up a big fat generator from a buddy which you can see in the background of one of the photos, because my house electrical SUCKS (1960's cheapo) and I keep popping weak 15 amp breakers while welding. This ought to meet my power demands!
Anyway, here's a few pics for you animals.
