Hurry up? This things on the 5 year plan as I have a budget each month on the jeep set by my wife. Might have to move the jeep to a new location, so yes- I did order a body mount kit to put the tub back on for now. I will put the tub on outside so it won't be stuck in rather it might be stuck out.
Also ordered steering stuff to complete the front end. Needed to go complete high steer.
Sweet looking build man! Love the tire combo!
Remember if you mount the body you can just leave the roll bar off while you are finishing it up, then it will fit in!

Did you have to reuse the original metal inserts or did it come with new ones?
I don't think it comes with inserts. And the new T-style inserts are like $4-$5 each. I think what I will do is get some sleeves from the local hardware. The kit has not come in yet, they sent me an email today saying they are out of stock and expect more in 2 weeks. I'll let you know what I come up with
Parts should be arriving this week to get the front steering straightened out.
When I first started the 44 build I got the passenger knuckle milled/taped and had planned on keeping it SUA. And just running the drag link only above the spring with a single high steer arm on the passenger side. Well, things changed.
Now, with going SOA I want To go with a full high steer setup, So instead of having to ship off the drivers side knuckle to get milled and taped. I ordered a set of Reid Armless knuckles. I will also need to get a different set of high steer arms that have a
double hole on the passenger side and be taller to make it over the springs.
I also noticed that I got a little too much positive camber. As my front wheels look like this \ jeep /
I figure I will straighten this out with some degree shims behind the spindles when I put the new knuckles on.
I have a lot of parts that still need paint and need to get to it soon as they are starting to surface rust on me. I guess I will just get more use out of the blasting cabinet.
Pictures and updates as the parts arrive-
