when that thread on pirate came out i had already done mine but didnt have many years on it yet. people tend to do write-ups without actually testing things out. they get it together in the driveway and run to the computer to show what they did. seemed to get more brittle with age which makes sense.

like the short and low pro perches.

Since the dana 30 came with knuckles already drilled for a tierod flip I mocked it up that way.
I had this problem:


I only had about "1 of uptravel before my draglink contacted my tierod.
so I created this thread http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/t...rence-1358161/I decided to go with a ford ranger Pitman arm out of a '80's 2 wheel drive with power steering.
Ranger arm on left YJ on right:

I had to file out the keyways

on it in the arm to clock it for the yj steering and add a goferit insert into to arm, because the taper was bigger than the yj tre. I fully welded it in instead of just tack welding it.

then I ordered up another goferit for the tierod to attach to the drag link. It worked great and I ended up with plenty of clearance. My turing radius kind of suffered a little from it but not much.

flexed it out on a mound of dirt out at the ranch:


after installing the 8.8 I never really liked how spongy my brakes felt so I ended up installing a ford Van E350 master cylinder:it made my brakes muy bueno.


I still may order me one of those parts mike bracket that moves my steering box forward an inch but the ranger arm is working good for now I can live with the loss of radius it really isnt that much.

Moab wheeling trip pics and video next.........

Loaded up headed out for Moab.

Made it safe and sound.

The begining of Hells revenge trail:

The Colorado River:

Coming out of Mickeys Hot tub:

My step-dad three-wheelin it all day.

Devils Highway Hot tub

It was about this time that we ran into the coolest group of guys running really built rigs. they let use tag along with them.


I always thought "Tip over Challenge" would be a bit more of a "CHALLENGE"

Did you have any clearance issues when running the Dana 35 with the waggy stretch? I would prefer to put off the gas tank mod until I am ready for my 8.8 swap.

It would kiss the skid every now and then when I flexed it out.
