Finally it's on the new axles! Still need to finish it up, but it feels good to make some real progress.

Thanks guys. I'm glad I went with the full widths and 37s over the EB axles and smaller tires. It looks awesome. I still need to fab up my steering, driveshafts, and shock towers, and install the new brake master cylinder. Then I will measure for shocks and brake lines. Once it's running and driving I'm going to build a new rear bumper and get rid of the nerf bars for some rockers and corner armor.

Drilled the taper out of the steering


Cut and welded the steering. It's 1.5 x .250 DOM with 3/4 heims from Ballistic.

I guess Ballistic builds their tube adapters to be MIG welded






Sandblasted:


Also made some shock tabs for the axles:

My girlfriend painted the steering


And the new steering went on

Corvette master cylinder will provide better braking since now it has dual piston calipers in the front and rear disc.

Thanks!

Thanks.

I picked up an extra set of stock YJ leafs Friday. I'm going to cut the eyes off the main leaf and use it as an add-a-leaf to my stockers on the Jeep now.
