well... i just cant seem to get enough projects going at the same time right now.
the latest is a cross member to relocate the upper end of my shocks. as it was, i didnt have enough room to compress the shock.
i just started this project, and hope to have it finished tomorrow. i have a 2"x2" cross member welded between the frame rails, and will weld some 3/16" steel tabs to it to mount the shocks.
for now, i will leave my lower shock mounts as they are, which is on the spring plate. this is just until i fugure out exactly where to put them, and what to use to mount them to the axle tube.
here are a few pictures...
more to come.
well... there you have it! i'll have to get out there and test this system out
it looks like it will work fine. these shocks have 10" of travel. i have to make a shim for the seat, and everything will be back to normal.
well, i had to do it. there ias a ramp at the jeep store that they are closing that they used for display vehicles. well the rear shock reloction worked perfectly! i'm very excited with the results of this. hetre are some pictures.
look at the compression on this spring!
there is less than an inch of shock left at full compression. perfect!
about 1.5-2" left on droop... (revolvers?)
well, there you have it, ladies and gentleman! oppinions, and feedback are welcome.
Very trick Nailer! I think its time to replace the flag though kinda tattered. Don't ya just love those MTRs! mine are great too.
Umm, well revolvers would drop those springs sooooo low. It would work but you may need to get even longer shocks! I gained 3inches droop with my stock setup so imagine what can happen with yours! Revolvers can open up like 10+ inches! I love my revovlers in the rear and can't wait to get a set for the front.
Very nice work though.
Sweet job Nailer!!!
You got me thinkin' now and that is spooky, my wife really thanks you for that
Did you measure how much travel you gained on that mod?
And was it necessary to run the base from frame rail to frame rail?
I'm lookin at buying a mig welder (of my own) and I am really lookin at doing some stuff to the heep!
No more of this, "Hey buddy, can I borrow your welder?"HA HA!

i iddnt measure the before and after, but the after is good...
no, i did not need the bar all the way across. i planned to run the shocks on an angle, and not cut the tub, but didnt like the way that was going. i utilized the cross member for plan "b"
