Got the control arms, frame and axle mounts mocked up. Also welded the knuckles up. Got one of the knuckles and unit bearing almost fitted up. They are really a tight fit.

I have to redo the upper control arm bracket on the diff. It needs to point further back so as not interfere with the track bar.

Tip: when welding up the frame mount upper tab leave the JJ in as the heat sucks the tab down. Bending 1/4" steel is not easy. I had to file it down a little so the JJ would go back in.

Here is the massive knuckle and E350 unit bearing


Better angle of the control arms. I set the upper to vertical and will rework tomorrow.

I have a piece of tube that the bolt slides through that I use so I don't smoke the races in the JJ. You want to cut it to just over 2 9/16's so you have some slack to drop the JJ down into. 1/4" is not very forgiving if the welds move the tabs.

You're moving right along. I wish I could get stuff done that fast.

Thanks Blaine! You make it easy for me!

Another great idea on cutting a tube to 2-9/16" (I think I can find a piece of tube somewhere. ) I'm going to use that when I final weld all of the control arm brackets.

I just can't leave things alone! MrBlaine has alot to do with it!
so the SYE kit made for the 231 TC also works on a 241 TC?

Thanks for the great documentation of your build up, it looks like a first rate job! Does you shop normally do fab work like this, or did you make your own 'monster garage' work space? I'm jelious either way.

Monster Garage all the the way! Old man hobby! I wrenched at my brother shop for years after high school and during college.

The 241 has fixed output yokes so no need to install a slip yoke eliminator. Only the 231 needs the kit. It is sometimes less money, better lo gear and easier to install by getting a 241.

Thanks guys

This will keep you entertained for a bit.

Great build. I wish I was out west so I could ride some of the nice trails you have out there.

I read thru your both threads and i have to ask where does the surplus rubicon parts keep coming from? Both the 03 and the 06 had rubicon doghouses and you had rubicon axles for a while in the one? Where are all these rubicons? i want one
