Grenaded D35

Some folks use short shackle plates and that gives them some flex; I once used a uniball from a forklift which worked good but can't find them anymore.
I decided the best route to go would be to use heim joints at all the ends. The rear two I tightened until they were snug so they shouldnt move anywhere (except allow 10* side to side sway if needed). The front is not tight at all, it is loose which should allow the bar to pivot on that axis, along with the 10* of misalignment that the joint will allow. I drove it up a trailer loading ramp at work (about 24" or so high) and it seemed to work pretty well, not much binding at least at that point. I also installed a shackle at the front between it and the t-case mount (which I still have to reinforce) to allow fore and aft movement as the axle flexes.

MoparFreak69: Axle wrap bar looks good, post up some pics of how you mounted it. I need to build one for my XJ so I'm looking for ideas.

Redgper: The 8.8 is a decent swap into the YJ and is plenty strong, there are all kinds of people running it behind V8's with big tires. And if you have a 5" x 4.5" bolt pattern, like you should, then you're good to go. The only question I have is it 31 spline?

Here you go Chili. I decided to mount the top link to my truss, mostly to get better link seperation and to try to limit the anti-squat I introduced into the suspension. I get a bit of anti-squat (rear lift instead of drop on acceleration) but I may be able to overcome that with a spare tire and healthy rear bumper. The tabs and heims I ordered from Spidertrax. The tabs are 1/8" material, I figure if I notice tearing or other deformation I will just order duplicates of the axle tabs and weld them onto the existing tabs, with plug welds which should give me effective material thickness of at least 3/16" (since 2 1/8th plates welded together arent quite as strong as 1 1/4" plate itself).

Rear axle mounts;


Front mount; will reinforce the t-case skid with some 3/16" plate with plenty of plug welds along the bottom.

Lol I have Currie steering with the Savvy heat-treated tie rod. If that was bent, I'd have some SERIOUS problems!

Gotta replace the trac bar with a Currie one. Lets see 1 1/4" x .250 wall 4130 chrome moly and a Johnny Joint do that!

The AMC gear is on the right, the left is the D44

First time for gears so I am sure it will be fun. I know how to do it, just never done it hands on.
