Cool build and cool thread!

Question for ya, is that "renagade" kit you put on a decal or a paint on stencil type deal?

I'm actually looking for a stencil for mine to be able to paint on.


Edit: I see you just traced your old decals. That turned out really good.

Yeah thats all we did was trace around the old decals and then primed and painted over them. A little time and effort and a whole lot of razor blading. Came out good for krylon but the real paint job will be done once I get my tube fenders done front and rear. Thanks for the support!

I hear ya. I spaced you were doing the full size axles. Your right you should have room. You'll hit the bottom of the fender before hitting the fill neck. Its looking good and I'm looking forward to seeing on the trail again.

The build looks great. I read through the whole thing. As a YJ I feel I can relate to a build with leaf springs all the way around. Im in AZ right now on vacation away from my Jeep and I miss her. Thanks for keeping me entertained and motivated!

Well today I started a little work on the full size axles. I wanted to lighten them up a bit before dragging them to the shop for the overhaul. All I can say is WOW!!!! 32 lug nuts never came off this hard! 3 hours PB Blasting the crap out of the lugs and standing on a cheater pipe to break the rust/torque. Here is the finish product before I drag them down to the shop in the next few days and start this next big project! Should be fun!

Oh yeah......going to have a set of CJ axles laying around in a few weeks. Rear is an AMC 20 with an one piece kit 3.54 gears and the front is a Dana 30. Great shape from the West Coast originally. I will post something once they are out but it never hurts to market them before hand.

Probably take $500 for the set but would consider any offers.

Alright so we got down and dirty today and cracked open the axles. First we started with the Dana 60. I am almost tempted to just do an axle build forum but I'll just toss them up here. First was the hubs. I won't badger this too much because I don't know the exact names on everything so bare with me.

Star bolts removed.

Next was pulling the locking hub cap off.

Then the screw that holds the cog and spring in.

Then the large lock ring came out.

Next was the smaller lock ring.

At that point the rest of the locking hub assembly is ready to come out. Thread the star bolts into the holes so you can use the bolts to pull the last of the assembly out.

Once that is out its time to get to the large nuts inside. I didn't have the socket to do this. Its a specialty socket. A punch and soft hammer blows should loosen these nuts.

After the first nut is out there is a star type washer or plate behind it.

The next nut comes off.

The bearing is the last piece in that puzzle.

At that point the only thing holding the rotor on is the brake caliper.

Dico'd the brake line.

The small bolt on the bottom of the caliper is the next to come out.

Then the plate holding the caliper on needs to get punched out.

At this point the caliper comes off and the rotor can be removed.

Once the rotor is out there will be 6 bolts to remove that hold the dust cover and caliper bracket on.

Remove them and the circle cover will come off.

Then the dust cover.

The caliper bracket comes off next.

Thats the last piece holding the outer part of the hub on.

From there the axle shafts can slide out.

Here are pics of the short and the long axle shafts.
