T-case end mount was mocked up then welded into place.

Axle mount welded into place.

Bar is all clean and ready for paint.

Masking removed from the bushings.

Main eye bushing was pressed in.

Shackle mount all welded out and painted. All that is left is to put the shackle on and its done. It is currently drying in the oven

I'm about to have to do the same thing because mine is about to trash some fairly new ome xj springs

I'm surprised 82jeep didn't slant it back on the axle to gain ground clearance. Make the top bar longer and angle the bracket on the axle twinstickd20.

Got my cage welded this weekend!
Bet it feels nice showing off those yummy welds. Got your machine dialed in real nice there. Good work!

Any time you do a link style setup, a percentage of it needs to be below the axle centerline.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Ahh. Didn't know that. Thanks. I hasn't researched link setups much.

Pulled the belly pan off of my Jeep to make a template to transfer to the new frame. The new frame looked like Swiss cheese from all of the mounting holes drilled in it, and being a frame from a newer year, none of the holes were what I needed.
Pulled the pan, and found my transfer case mount was completely broken. I guess that would explain the recent klunking I was feeling while pulling out.
I had a new one on the shelf I picked up but never installed yet.

A little worn out????


Cut a piece off a roll of body mount rubber I had laying around for the snubber part. I had to work with what I had at the time. I just need a few more months out of it until teardown time.


Wrestled the belly pan back on dropping nuts into the access holes the PO had cut in the frame. Took a while, and a lot of cussing, something I'm trying to avoid in the future.

Plugged up most of the unused holes in the new frame and welded them up. I left three 5/8 holes in each side for water drainage.
Drilled three new 1/2 holes and fished 3/8 bolts through the frame. Welded them in place for studs for the pan. Should be as easy as a wire brush and some PB Blaster to remove it in the future.
