I'm sure James can give me a hand with that.......

Welding is freakin' addicting. Now I can do it all the time.

I'm tossing around the idea of building a second HP30 with WJ knuckles and custom steering/track bar out of heat treated chromolly linkage. I'll only do it if I can figure out how to get the front end pushed out at least 2". And a 3 link mid-arm at the same time.....Just thinking outloud........the rear end has had plenty of attention while the front has just been doing its thing with zero issues. It needs to be rewarded somehow.

Oh, by the way
I wired up my welder to run off the dryer outlet in my garage. Let me know if you need help.

2-3" front stretch is possible without moving the steering box. See my build soon for an example

2-3" is NOT possible without some serious modification and/or sacrifice of performance unless you move the box. If you've found a new method then please share, but your **** better be correct before touting it as the solution. That means straight coils. Proper shock angles, and proper steering geometry. If that is right, then awesome, if not, head back to the drawing board.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

When is this POS going to be ready for Attica? Get your rear anti-rock in? My sye is in & she's ready for some action.
Aside from a tweaked front drive shaft (nothing new), no rear sway bar, and the sound that's probably nothing, it's all good. Unfortunately, I've decided that there are just too many great games on Sunday and that's what I'll be doing.

I'll keep an eye on it.

Jimmy, from all my calculations and measurements prior to my front mid arm. I came out with a solid 2" stretch. Or it was all just smoke and mirrors. Maybe I lost all that wb from those short arms. But, they were maxed out also. And my ride height really never changed. My coils are straight up and down. My shocks mount at the very back of my axle side CA mount so they will be straight up and down. Before measurement from bottom of fender to center of ball joint was 22.125. After measurement is 24.250.~ my front DS is also maxed out with a HP44 which has a longer pinion.

Just sayin..... guess i am some kinda damn houdini..... :mystery:

You should do more research and less web wheeling, Fab Police. What are you gonna do? Huff and puff and complain on facebook? Beat it nerd.

Then you should remind your friend that he's in no position to tell me what I need to do...even on the interwebz. I came in here with some good information and have the sources to back it up. Your "friend" came back with attitude and I let him know his place. If you don't like what happened you should speak to him because I did nothing wrong.

Carry on

And will you be mounting it in front or behind your rear axle?

No rear AR yet. Will probably mount it behind the axle.

The fixing of straight coils and shocks can be helped with something of this sort.

Lolz sorry Connor. Forgive me for asking for proper proof because I'm tired of seeing hackjob **** get cobbled together. Albeit a bit strong for some people.

You missed a good day. The cage and interior are back in. While the cage is not completely buttoned up, it's close enough to sit and make vroom vroom noises.

On a side note, remember when you were messing with the MML and hit the tranny line or something somewhere? The UA was full of tranny fluid and when we lowered the jeep it poured out. Lol so I get to take it back apart and figure out where the hell it's coming from. Lol
