I vote your next project is ...



it's yellow.

I assume you're talking about this one...





I like that red RME TJ, but I have to build the CJs first, especially since I have garage space now.

That Rocky Mountain would be a really easy fix! Some tube fenders and a bumpers and away you go. Then the fun begins! Lift, tires, TT, axles cage, armor and hundreds other must have goodies!

Whe I look at the reapirables, I always like to see how the grill and hood line up. If they are close then it is a easy fix because the frame is not so tweaked. When I see the hood shift then I know the frame needs work. Not a big problem but more work than the average guy would want to do or pay to put it on the frame jig.

Oh, and the Yellow thing looks like someone die in that thing. It is probably haunted!

Back on it's wheels!

Finally back on it's wheels. Well sort of. I had to make a compromise and run the 37" Krawler KXs this year as I'm running out of time for the upcoming season. My goal was to get back on it's wheels by the end of the month.

The 40" tires will not work with my current tube fenders so I'm going to wait till after this season to do the highline tubes and hood. MrBlaine has been kind enough to shepard me through this build and he's has been working on a Jeep that is really cool and has done some really innovated and one off stuff that most of us can only dream of. I tell you this because he has been able to anticipate all of my problems before they arise. So, when he says it ain't going to work I listen! He told me I was going to have all sorts of problems getting the 40s to fit with a LCG rig. Sure enough nothing wants to fit nicley.

So I'm back on 37 for now I'm in the process of unmounting the last two 40s off the beadlocks and mounting the 37s. I have another set of 37s wheels and tires but I can't use them becasue they are 15" rims and my rotors are 14" making impossible to use them.

We're headed out Saturday AM early early to deliver the rig to JV. We put it on it's front tires today to check ride height with the springs and the adjusters just putting tension on the coils to keep them from rattling at full droop. 7" in the front and 8" of up in the back. And it looked really really good sitting on the tires.

While not specifically a LCG rig, we checked the door sill height and it's 2" taller than a 4" lifted TJ with a 1" body lift and it's sitting on 37's clearanced for 39's.

Any chance you'd post some pics? I remember seeing that rig months ago when you were first starting it.

Here you go Nik. If we mess up GL's thread and he gets mad at me, it's your fault.

Blaine,

Thanks for letting me drive it. It really got me motivated this weekend to get my junk running! Can't get mad at my final destination.

Love the mini boatsides! How did it do out at JV?

Flawless with two minor exceptions. We tore off the skidplate under the Rock Jock and I didn't get a fitting tight all the way on the ram which caused it to spit a bit of fluid later in the day.

He liked how it worked so well on Sledge that he took it over and ran it up Back Door for grins.

Making Drag link and Tie Rods 101

Yesterday, I was taught how to make strong drag links and tie rods. Blaine thanks! He had all of these parts so now I just need to replace them all. Polyperformance had everything so I can replace his stock plus make some spares.

Material List:
Chromoly Tube 1.25" - .120 wall
Chromoly Tube 1" - .188 wall sleeve
7/8" -18 Tube inserts 2 x LH thread & 2 x RH thread - Tube ID 1"
7/8" -18 Jam nuts 2 x LH thread & 2 x RH thread
Napa Tie Rod End LH thread PN 269-2442
Napa Tie Rod End RH thread PN 269-2441

Once you have figured you drag link or Tie rod length you then insert the 1" tube into the 1.25" tube. It fits snug and you must leave a little room so the TREs can thread all the way down if needed.


Drag link parts


Measure and check lengths. I use the above heim jointed tie rod to measure my length


Insert sleeve


Tack it together and your ready for mock up. I'll probably TIG the tube insert on
