Finally got the emission conrol stuff moved from the rear quarter to underneath. I mounted the cannister between the driver rear upper control arm and drive shaft. I just got some aluminum sheet and tek screwed it in to the tub. The other stuff I welded a couple of bolts to the frame rail and mounted next to the transfer case protected by the skid.

When all said and done you only need to run two emission lines back to the tank vents and intercept the others where I mounted the ECU. Bring the wire from the back to the middle of the Jeep and your done. It took me a lot longer becasue I sat there and looked at the thing for a couple of days trying to make sense of it all. I think this uniquire to 2003 and up TJs.

I'm getting real close now. I need to install brake lines and mount the tank. Install the new Genright aluminum stretch corners and wire up the ARB compressor. Also, got the Genright bumper and Warn 9000XD winch setup. I've got a synthetic line I have to install but that can wait. I'll get some real poser shots later.

Good old Rustoleum Satin Black.

Had some fun today. Shaffer Offroad and Torchmate were kind of enough to make me a set of steering arms from my knuckles. So, I was able to burn those on. The problem with Spidertrax steering arms are they are way up there. It is really hard to keep the Jeep at a decent ride height if you want to use them. Also I pushed the front axle forward making space really tight.

I saw the knuckles Shaffer Offroad did for the Torchmate Buggy and I asked them if it would be possible to get a DIY kit. No problem, they cut me a set out and sent them down. So, this weekend I must have the Jeep running. I've got some long days ahead of me.

Here are the steering arms




Got the bumper mounted and you can see the power steering cooler for my PSC Hydro Assist Unit

Build looks great. If there's anything I can do to help with spydertrax and tru hi tech, let me know.

I've done quite a few of them in the last couple years.

Very nice.

I have a build coming with another set of 609's. I will be using that steering arm on the one side as well.

Do you have any shots of the installed height on that draglink in relation to the frame?

How much steering angle did you end up with?

What's Next?

So as I thinking forward there are many thing I would have done differently. Since this was my first one ton build I learned a lot!

Things to do are:

Highline Front Fenders - At full articulated stuff the 37s will rub and I still have another 1.5" of uptravel.

Reshape the Rear wheel openings - Again, at full stuff the stretch corners will dig the tires. I'll really do not want the comp fender look as I like the more traditional jeep look.

39s are in the future but the above most be completed first.

Suspension Seats will probably be installed at some point.

So as I tally the build cost from where it was on RE 3.5 SF 35s to now, I've spent a little more then 20K. Not a small sum but the enjoyment I get from the process is priceless.

Thanks for looking and I will still update Unrolled.

Thanks!

I don't know the actual angle but it is a lot. The front is 63.5 WMS which I find is a little to narrow if you want alot of steering. The 37's rub the frame with 4" BS wheels. I temporarliy put some 1.25" wheel spacers and I can max out my u-joints and the tires no longer rub.

Something to look out for, which I found this morning, is to make sure you don't make your link bracket on top of the diff (with a Hi9) to low. I will have to do a slight modification as the arm and DS make contact at full stuff.

Why I didn't catch it was my mistake as I had been fooling around with the pinion degrees and never set it back to wher it was suppose to be. Thus creating this mess. Easy fix but not something I wanted to do in a hurry.

Keep in mind I push my axle 4" forward so my WB is now 101". This created all sorts of problems and I if I were doing it again I won't do the front as much. But, my goal is 39's so I'm going to need the room.

Here are some pix of the draglink.

Passenger side just might kiss at full stuff and I used the Genright Kit

Lot of it looks familiar.

Lucky for my last build I went full hydro so didnt have to worry about some of the clearence issues.

This next one I'm not so lucky. Here is some of my front end. Its about 67.5" wms, due to 45 degree steering and 38's.

Not quite full lock but you get the picture. Right now my lowers are the limiting factor to get past 45 degrees.



With my flush mount lowers, my 3rd link over the pinion was quite high to begin with to keep seperation. As soon as I cycled, I noticed exactly what you ran into, but lucked out and it cleared.





Mounting as high as I did at the pinion result in a funny angle on the upper with my low ride height. I actually built the frame bracket on top of the one poly sends you to get a better angles upper. Basically double stacked the mount, and then boxed it in.






On the next build I will be following with a lot of what you did. Its pretty cool to have someone to bounch this stuff off of.

I was told to go 67" wms and was stubborn thinking I could keep it narrow (huh Blaine) so now I'm at 66.5". I'm going to get some 3.5" BS wheels and call it good. I got a great deal on the wheels (well at least I thought so at the time. LOL!

I like your shock mounts. AT the time I thought I was going to rub the tires if I did something like that.

I like your idea on the upper frame mount. Hmmmm

Thanks for the pix. I guess we are never done with these things!

You arent kidding. I still have air bumps to go on, and a heat treated smaller diameter trackbar combined with some notching and adjustment to get my last 1.5" of uptravel for a total of 6-6.5 up front

I too have to install my air bumps! Ran out of time. I was shooting for 7" of up travel so the front is going up 1" and the back will be going down 1" from the current pix.
