I also have a 2000 Z28 M6 with your employer's tubular turbo K-Member.

Can't wait to see it finished.
I have owned 3 f-bodies before I got the Jeep, they're a lot of fun too.

Ok so I haven't posted much and this thread is old, but the Jeep is finally running and driving. The fuel pump strainer melted from the fuel sitting in the tank, so we put a new fuel pump and strainer in. I cut down and welded a front XJ driveshaft for the rear, put all new u-bolts and u-bolt plates from ruffstuff, plumbed the master cylinder and front and rear brakes. Next weekend we'll bust out the welder and weld up the MORE shockmounts and weld shock mounts on the axles and I'll start driving the jeep every few days to work out any bugs from it sitting for so long. Then I'll build a traction bar for the rear and it's time to start wheelin it!



Measuring for shocks

Nice flex. Is the front going to rub?

It just barely rubs in the front, but I'm going to bumpstop it so it won't. In the picture the rear is actually touching the tub, I'm going to cut the rear to a TJ size opening

My buddy Danny welding up the shock mounts on the rear. He's been a huge part of this build, it wouldn't be where it is today without his help.

Took it for the maiden voyage today, and it went pretty well. I got it up to around 50 mph and had no vibrations or wobble, which is amazing. Being that I welded the rock rings on the wheels and I didn't get them balanced, and I didn't get the rear driveshaft balanced after I cut and welded it. Our eyeball alignment was good enough to take my hand off the wheel and the Jeep stayed straight. The rear pinion seal is leaking pretty bad and the brakes need bled better, both of which I'm going to do tomorrow after work.

Bringing this back up due to this build actually moving along well now. The rear end that I had in it was in pretty bad shape, so I picked up a new one. Got it all set up and put in. It's open diff right now, but I'll be putting an ox locker in it when I have the money.

The jeep drives great. I have had it up to 75 mph with no vibrations or issues, which is crazy since the tires aren't balanced and neither is the driveshaft. Now that I have been putting some miles on it, it's time to get everything else done.



Also got plates formed for rock sliders and a rear crossmember, or start of the rear bumper.



Also picked up a Trail Worthy Fab 12" LED light bar

lesson learned: be glad you live in Florida running those military oz tires. they are the worst cold weather tire on the planet hands down.

Got some rear tube flares for a TJ, and opened them up more to clear the 37s, and 4" LED taillights.



Almost fits in my garage with the top on! It'll fit with no top which is when it really matters.
