Hey, Scott
plans for the rear is to just use the one i have for moch-up.
Then drive it down to you, so you can put it in Lizzie.
then get a currie heavy duty 9 + housing with disc brakes and throw in a true HI9 with a detroit and 4.56's
I want to do the rear right, and 1 time only. to handle the power i plan to unleash.

nice work, VERY nice !
in the middle of a complete rebuild of a very custom CJ7.
one of the things we are 90% finished with is an outboarded Scout 44 pushed forward 3 1/2 inches, all custom steering box mount welded in to the frame, going to shave the spring mount on the pumpkin to tilt the pinion and then cut the C's to reset the caster.

really like the cart you made ! looking forward to seeing more

Lizzie is VERY excited!! We'd feed ya!

I'm glad to hear your plan. I didn't want to have to tell you that the rear looked like crap! But I was prepared to!

Good to hear from you.
I came across a picture of your yellow jeep last night and was wondering if you were still around.

i poke my head in every once in a while, doing some research on some custom wiring ideas and like to read and see visuals of what JH has to offer. YES, i said it

yellow is doing great, had a main seal leak on the 350 but have that fixed. going to stick some one ton D60's under it this summer and keep em SUA & cut to a 62" WMS.

look'n forward to seeing more of your progress, I'll try to stick my head in more and contribute to the forum

I was all set to order some rims and tires to get this project into a rolling chassis with some money I had saved up. But, My Wife had other plans!
I guess it's a trip to Mexico in March for a week instead of rims and tires. Oh-Well

Thought you might like to see what'll be coming to you next week. I started on the rear hangers first and will be making the front ones right away. Now you can get those YJ springs mounted.

Very nice work, D44/9" should hold up to some serious abuse

Back from Mexico and really thinking about my jeep now that I have experienced warm weather.
I tried to rent a jeep in Cozumel but they were all taken. So tooled around on a scooter instead. Seen a few CJ's there, but mostly Yj's & TJ's. Stayed in playa del carmen and the vintage vehicle of choice there seems to be the VW Beetle. Seen about 50 of them in a single day.
Rested and relaxed I will get back to working on the jeep real soon.
