oh yeah if you really plan on wheeling that year model hard better cage it and tie cage into suspension or itll rip in half under the rear seat i know ripped 3 of em allready...i go thru bodys like b-ball players go thru shoes...the later models added raised tunnels in floor area and replaced the rear hatch with a metal one the fiberglass ones will explode under hard flex and the glass shatters under moderate stress...but at least you have a 4 door the added b-pillar makes it a little stronger but now much...

An atlas would be nice (4spd would be pimp) but it's not really in the budget. Think I'm going straight to a Dana 300 and save the 231 for a doubler later down the road.

Cage is in the plans, but want to get it moving on its own again first. Can't decide if I want an interior cage or exo it.

I considered a 4 link and probably will do it later down the road. I want to get this wheeling asap, so staying with leaves in the rear is quicker and cheaper. I was into my last project 2 1/2 years and only got to wheel it a couple of times and kinda lost interest in it. Not sure if I'm doing a comp cut, but the rear if fixing to loose a lot of sheetmetal.

Today I picked up some 3x3x3/16" angle iron to make frame stiffeners. Tomorrow I'll be picking up a Dana 300.

I need to do stiffeners too, alot of people overlook them but runnign 40's i dont think not havign them is even an option for you

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

What's your plan with the Dana 300?

I've got one going in, too. Wondering what you're doing: drop it low or hammer to floorboards or cut out floorboards, mechanical shifters, cable shifters, etc?

Cut and rebuild around it with an access hole to check/fill the fluid. Not sure on shifters yet, but this set up is kinda cool.

Pushed it outside today so I can start cleaning up the garage. Also fired it up for the first time in a while and let in run a bit.

Just have a shop bend you a cage or go here

http://shop.jeeptubes.com/category.sc?categoryId=11

They sell all kind of tubes pre bent and stuff, you could get everything needed to weld a cage

Know about jeeptubes, but would rather buy a pre-engineered kit to make it simple.
