We are very excited about the front and we think WJ owners will be too when they see the price.
I am only a few hours away form you and would be more than willing to bring my WJ to you. Seriously I am contemplating doing the swap. You guys could keep it for a few days if need be. Let me know I am deff. interested

Any word on the front? My WJ is tired of being schizophrenic, commuter during the week and warrior on the weekends. As a result I'm buying a dedicated commuting vehicle which frees me up to build the WJ further.

The TJ and WJ Front is about 90% complete, most of what's left is easy. Our main fabricator is on Vacation this week and when he gets back we are going to install the front 60 in our shop WJ. After install we can figure out trac bar length needed and be able to send complete steering kits with the axles.

The shop WJ is bone stock less the rear 60 it already sports. We are going to try to install the front 60 with out lifting it to be sure there are no clearance issues. I expect that some amount of lift is going to be needed but we are going to find out what the minimum lift is.

I expect by the end of the month they will be ready to ship as complete assemblies- Brakes, steering, trac bar, it may also require a larger master cylinder as this axle will have big boy brakes.

Thanks for all the interest. ECGS

What's a little lift between friends?!?!

I can't imagine stepping up to a D60 without at least 3 to 4 inches of lift. I'm planning on ditching my short arm 4" and going to a 6" Clayton long arm in conjunction with D60s.

I'm assuming a master cylinder from a Dodge 1 ton truck or something similar wouldn't be too tough a swap.

This is sounding better and better.

Yes my fabricator is mad at me for trying to install this with no lift b/c he agrees that everyone will be lifted. This is likely true but if we have no clearance issues with no lift then I know everyone who receives one will have plenty of room to work with.

The Install of the axles is obviously critical so we can provide tech support and work out all the details and solutions to what comes with a custom axle.

The purpose of this axle and all our axles is to be user friendly. IE there is a complete formula to the install. We can weld brackets on any axle that will go in a WJ TJ or whatever, however there is a lot more that goes into making one work correctly particularly Braking, steering, Ect. We will have the details worked out so there is no guessing and the final product should be exactly what you want.

As for the clayton kit, That is exactly what we will be putting on it after the axle is installed. The former grocery getter kid hauler will be in my opinion the ultimate expedition vehicle.

So, is that a yes for a bolt in YJ front 60? A YJ is a piece of cake if you have one done for a TJ...

Well its definitely going to need to be lifted but the bracket kit is dialed in and ready to be welded on. We are waiting on our clayton long arm kit to come in and we will install both the 4 inch and 6 inch spring to check clearances.
Hopefully next week we will be driving it and we will be able to put the price tag on it full a full swap kit.

Here are some pics the oh so disappointing pic that you cant see anything, but this is the shop and the test vehicle

That is all the dirty pics we will show, The axle will be removed and built while the clayton kit is being installed. Once it is complete..... pretty and painted well post up some more completed pictures. May not be the end of the month but very close to it.
