Thanks you, hopefully I'll be able to get some real progress in even though I have school and work now.


So I'm thinking about using 63" chevy springs when I do the stretch I just don't like how they are a rock anchor when using the stock mount of front. If anyone reading this has done the chevy leafs or no anyone who has let me know.

I found this kit from ruff stuff which looks really nice http://www.ruffstuffspecialties.com/catalog/63SWP.html just need to figure out what kind of stretch I can get from it. I really like this look with the chevy springs and its hard to tell but looks like he might have used the same kit.
cant find much on this rig and I have stalked the crap out of the guy

Couple days ago I fixed some problems with the fuel cell. I took the filler neck off and replaced it with a stock xj one and attached the vent hose to that so it no longer over flows. Also fixed the sending unit so it reads pretty accurate now. Today I bought some leaf spring brackets off of ruffstuff and now determining what kind of leafs I should get. After market xj ones or 63" chevy springs?

Chev springs! There long but you could mount your shackle hangers to you rear bumper. Its really pretty easy, I did it with my 2a with longer leafs and just made a rear bumper with shackle hangers.

Thats what I think I will go with just need to grab some and figure out where to mount them to get a good amount of stretch without them becoming rock anchors off the rear bumper.

What xj guys? I'm having a hard time finding good information on it even on pirate. I put a thread about it on here and only people who responded where like thats absurd that long of a spring. I see them on xj and yotas and the flex is really insane. Am I going to see you this weekend for some wheeling?

Damn I didn't realize showtime used chevy springs. Well if you run into any local guys see if they stretched their wheelbase with it.

I love the blue rig but can't find anything about it, I've stalked the guy on probably 5 other forums and he shares no details except they are 63" chevy springs.

I can't wait to either! especially since then I get home I can begin cutting away!

Went wheeling over the weekend with some friends up at Rausch Creek in PA. Jeep did pretty good kept up with the big guys which made me pretty pleased. The steering is really worn out, got me looking at the currie set up but need to finish the rear first! Today I figured out how I'm doing the compcut so hopefully Wednesday I'll start some bends. Anyway here are some pictures!

awkward shots










Have some videos with the gopro hopefully will have them up soon.

I got to land on the sliders a couple times it was awesome ha. I hope to work on it some tomorrow but I'm not really sure with school. I need to see what my work schedule looks like for the weekend, I go in Thursday so hopefully I'll see some free time during the evenings this weekend.
