removed my front d.shaft since i thought it was barely hanging on,since i could see 3/4 inch of the splines sticking out of the slip yoke.
after removing it i realized there is still 2 3/4 inches still in the yoke..just to be safe im going to have it lengthened 1 1/2 inches to make up for the 4 inch lift and the lil forward stretch..
MAN I NEED TO GET SOME WHEELING IN SOON,IM ITCHING BAD;2 WEEKS IS A LONG TIME TO GO FOR ME

how exactly would you have done it? put the frame mounts beside the frame instead of under it? this is what i am trying to figure out because i have the UCF 1" TT. i dont think it would do me any good to have my skid hang down 1" and have my control arm mounts hang down 3". but then again, what about bolt clearances...

how are you going to brace the insides of those mounts? put gussets around them, or run a brace from one side to the other?

after being under it yesterday i see i couldnt have inboarded them any more or they would hit the exauhst on the pass side..
i will put a small gusset from my bracket to the frame on the front end only someday soon..im not to worried about it to be honest..the frame is 1/8 inch thick,some people put root welds and more and more welds,i put a single weld that i can gaurantee is stronger than any factory weld on the jeep anywhere so theres no point in going crazy with it..then the frame becomes the weak point..
the brackets are made from 4 x1/4 tubing so imho it would have to rip the frame apart before it could hurt the bracket even w/out a gusset on the frame..but it will get a gusset on the frame and bracket when time permits..i really need it on a lift to get up in there good.

woke up this morning and decided today was the day to remove the upper rear spring bucket and get it straight like it should have been in the first place.
thankfully i had my bro inlaw for the days also as he done most of the cutting off and tearing down while i worked on a welding job.


installed new 4 inch currie hd springs while i was at it.

not the best welds but its welded.

installed some temp skyjunker shock extenders till the rear gets changed in the future..after 2 sets of shocks, i shoulda done this the first time also..now i will more than likely rip the hole bracket off the axle next time.

no more acrhed rear springs,hippie ky yiii aaaahh,,notice i grabed the wrong can of paint the first time,satin bronze lol
