Thinking about doing this to the rear of my Jeep using the Ford towers so I can run some taller shocks. I would build a cover to go around them.

If running tons you can just simply out board the towers and shocks then keep the rear tub useable. Which I thought (82jeepcj7) you were swapping axles???

I am eventually. I have to drive about an hour, with a ferry ride, to go get them. Just need to work out the time where I can meet up with the guy.

Either way, theres some writeups for bolting them on, I measured mine out for 60/40 split an welded. If you bolt on you have to drill holes of course

Flipped the hardtop over and tied it down to a couple of trees so that the wind we're getting today wouldn't carry it off and tear it up. Dang, I need to put that thing back on....

Welded more nuts in my frame. I always had a problem on my Jeep with wanting to mount something, and being a pain because there was nowhere to mount it. Or having to reach in to my elbows to hold a nut.
I figure with this frame, I couldn't have too mounting holes.

After welding in new nuts for the front CJ stock spring hangers, I decided to put nuts in for mounting a CJ rear hanger on the front, in case I go with YJ springs.
Might as well make it a simple bolt on if I do. I can now mount a CJ rear hanger backwards on the front. Ground off the crossmember rivet and punched it out. Welded in a nut. I also added another to position the hanger farther forward if needed.
Added nuts for the front bumper also.


Flipped it over and drilled holes and added nuts for my tow hooks and front bumper mounts. I run the stock lightweight front bumper, I like the look and it not weighing 200 lbs.


Somewhat boxed the front in for a little added strength just in case the shackle hanger ends up in the very front holes.


The hanger in the forward most position. If I go with YJ springs, it should sit one notch towards the rear. Just have to wait on the brown Santa to bring my new hangers.


This is too much like work.....

Ya but imagine in three or four years from now when it is finished how nice it will be LOL.

These are pretty handy and you can use them for more than seat belt harnesses:

A big plus is they can be attached and welded from the same side. Drill a 3/4' hole, weld and Bobs your uncle. I used two to hold my hi-lift, works great.

I swear this teardown will only take a couple of days, not 11 years like the last time.

I could have used some of them a few days ago when I did everything that couldn't be accessed from the inside.
Not sure if I would trust MY welding enough for the steering and suspension though. Those would only hold as good as the weld.

I want to do that bar behind my rear seats like that so that I can use 4-point harnesses! Anyone else ever done that for a daily driver/weekend wheeler???
