work is a spectator sport. the one working is practicing, as his car is next in line for the 5.3 treatment

one of them on the couch should be working on the ZJ in the background but is easily distracted by the other projects going on.

right now we have a 1 ton Yota in the garage for some work. Used to have air shocks, the owner converted to coil over but kept the same mounts. we are redoing the shock mounts to lower the truck down to a more manageable height.

previous ride height, 31.5" to the frame, about 26" to the transfer case crossmember.

now it has a full flat belly, and is about 7" lower total with only a 24.5" belly height


made new shock hoops for the front and just relocated the rear tabs. While in the shop, it got a ton of other work as well. tied his seats directly to the frame, bigger e fan for the radiator, trans cooler, some cage bracing, Currie Anti-rock in the rear, Tube center console work. This truck has had MANY hands in it over the years, with a total of 4 different people/shops having built the cage in different stages and it shows with everyones different styles and skill levels.




Right rear tire is flat, hence the lean

My K5 gets its turn in the shop this time. 3 link, re-do of the front cage, and full hydro steering as well as fix a few other issues like the kinks in the frame we found during teardown.

wheels were just a hair big to chuck up in the lathe so had to slap them in the mill to bore out the center hub diameter of the wheels from 66.1 mm to the jeep 71.5mm. went slightly oversize to adjust for any possible centering issues with the milling.
