Finally was able to get my Jeep in to rotate and balance the tires. Hopefully next week Blaine can start on the 241 swap and install the Fox shocks. I keep telling my wife that after this, the Jeep will be finished... For some reason, I don't think she believes me.

So......does that mean you'll be stopping by tomorrow now that the tires are good-to-go?

I agree with her. Finished & Jeep don't go well in the same sentence.

I promised myself that I'd work on my Jeep this weekend & today that didn't happen. So that leaves me with tomorrow to get some things done.

I keep asking myself the same thing & yet time ticks by and its not ready to reliably run JV.

I've been wanting to drag it up to Blaines forever to do a bunch of stuff I can't do correctly myself. Thing stopping me is funds.

Afternoon is fine. Most likely I'll be starting ~9-10am.

Naw, not a "party". Just a few folks standing around talking smack.

You're welcome. I'm sure there are less expensive places around. These guys are always very helpful and willing to spend time with their customers & the service I have had there has always exceeded my expectations - so I return.

If would help you out at all I'll take that 241 off your hand.

Joe what's left on it?

You are a good enough welder to get it done, none of the Jeep related stuff is rocket science. A good eye and some creative thinking solves most problems. The harder part is to transform the creative thinking into metal, I am sure you can do it if you tried.

I want to do a custom tummy tuck. One that uses a crossmember to support the tranny & allows the Atlas to sit nice & high. I have a 1" BL & 1" MML right now which should help a little. I don't mind beating/cutting on the tub so that the tcase doesn't bang against the tub when the frame flexes or when engine torque occurs. It doesn't have to be 100% flat, but as close as possible would be sweet. This needs to be done prior to 4link work to minimize suspension rework.

The fuel tank needs to be pulled and the Genright 23 gallon tub style fuel cell be mounted and all the lines ran.

The 8.8 needs to be pulled & a RuffStuff truss added, along with cutting off the current SOA traction bar bracketry. In conjunction with that - I want to stretch the rear wheelbase ~10" and have the truss welded accordingly. This needs to be done to account for going with a rear coilover upper triangulated 4link.

Cut the old rear leaf spring stuff off & prep the frame for the RuffStuff 4link axle install brackets.

Once the wheelbase is set & the links are made, get bumpstops installed and limit straps. The bumpstops may need to be frenched into the frame.

More than likely, install a rear antirock.

Going coilover with a narrow 8.8 is going to present some challenges of its own. Its a bit wider than a normal Explorer style 8.8 due to having a prototype Super 88 kit installed courtesy of Blaine. I have added 2" wheel spacer adapters as well so that the 8.8 has a 8x6.5 WBP to match the 60 front. These adapters may help a little to keep the tires out of the coils and further away from the towers.

At some point - add hydro assist.

That's the short list.

Today, I'm doing some front end bracketry welding and some touch-up stuff on the front axle and steering.
