The pic under the trans tunnel showing all the space you opened up is pretty impressive. Got me thinkin - you could clock that transfercase and you'd really be able to tuck everything up.

Cool stuff with the mag layout and article!

Thanks Fellas!

No space to clock that case, there isnt much room above it nor room for the front shaft to go any higher! Unless I started cutting the floor.......Hmmmm......


Should have her running next week, then have the old mounts all removed by thursday night. Hopefully!

No, the grand is a wheeling truck only! I've got a dual cab ute for work, plus a couple of others Jeeps in the yard

The grand has been wheeling only for the last 4 yrs and around 70thou kilometres, been lucky to be able to do that!

How many US gallons will the fuel cell hold?

I've seen some trucks hang freshwater tanks under them for camping in the desert.

Some progress!

Will be keeping the factory LCA mount on the diff, angles work well with the arms.

Still have to remove the trackbar and upper mounts to mock up the truss and set its angle to retain the pinion angle through flex.

Steel shop hasnt finished the frame rails sleeves yet, hopefully soon!
