Seems to me it's done, when it's done. You know by now how these things go. Jeeps throw up unforeseen challenges all the time. I wouldn't stress, take your time, get it done to your liking and then enjoy it, while you piddle around with your buggy project

Now it's just down to I am Ready to drive it and get some wheeling in this Summer instead of hanging out in the garage. It's been fun taking my time. But, it's time to get busy and focus on the end.

I know updates are virtually useless without pictures. Here you guys go.


Steering is finished all except mounting the cylinder for the assist.

The ball joints are in and the Axle is done except for bolting on the calipers and tightening down the diffcover.

Hope you guys can see that the track bar is nearly invisible behind the drag link. It took a lot of work to get them to play together with the rig this LOW.

Sweet. That's a lot like how I have mine, your trackbar stands off from the spring a bit more than mine though.
I like that you used the offset TRE at the drag link for track bar clearance, but do you think it'll have enough misalignment for when that side drops out?
Sorry I just bombed you with questions in the other thread you just put those in...

It's was fine in all the cycles I tried, if in real time it does not then I will limit the droop to 6" instead of 7".

Thanks guys. It's coming together better than I ever visioned.
