Added a drain to the 9". Props to StrokedWJ for the suggestion and the pic earlier in the thread. Here's what we came up with for max function and low-profile protection -- you can see it is recessed, reinforced (just a tad ), and a magnet was jb welded to the to inside plug to catch any metal. Notice the rear truss burn marks on pic #4?
Front swaybar is retained. Creativity was needed for the front swaybar links in order to achieve optimal angle (i.e. parallel with the lower control arm) while avoiding any interference of the front steering or suspension. Here is the driver's side design. Passenger is similar, and was much easier since no steering links to contend with. WJ style JKS disco's are used (open loops top/bottom). The pics are a bit deceiving -- there is plenty of clearance between the link arm mount and the trackbar.
Rear swaybar is mounted to the truss. If the gas tank was raised, it could be mounted much higher up, but as it currently sits, there is no clearance issues with the stock tank skid. Rear swaybar links are JKS disco's (not pictured) -- not for disconnect function, but moreso for flex. I like the stock rear swaybar connected.
In this pic, you can also see the rear shock mount. The goal was to position the shock for optimal dampening (i.e. as close to perpendicular to the ground as we could get, within reason given design limitations).
Glad to see you figured out the speedo wiring man!
It was a pain when I did it cuz not a lot of true info was out on the interweb. A few people had ideas, but nothing really to follow. And that was a good thing to say that Chrysler has different colors for wires, because I ran into that issue first hand. Haha. Where are the full widths and coilovers
And with the speedo gear, mine with 5.38s and 37s is dead on with a 41 tooth I believe.
99 WJ hp44, 3 link, Eaton e locker, 14" foa coilovers in the front. 14 bolt, 4 link, grizzly locker, 12" foa coilovers in the rear. 5.38s and 37s
As Mtnmarc wrote above, the speedo wiring was a bit of a struggle. I revised the thread a bit for that section (post #5), hopefully for others to avoid our headaches. Here is the 231 with the speedo port, which was previously sealed off:
And here is the finished product with the speedo gear in place and wiring run back along the rail to the driver rear speed signal wiring:
D44 back under the truck. Picture of the driver spindle, hub, lockout assembly. Note: when using manual lockouts such as Warn, the drive slug springs are not used (shown in picture for illustrative purposes only).
