Great work. If Dave has the time and the financing he can literally build anything. Give him a hammer, drill and a torch and hill make it work. That axle resleving made me happy in pant. Just wondering why CB3 didnt opt for some dog leg front long arms??

Give him a hammer and he will do a better job than what Fiat did with the new Cherokee !

seriously though, I read this thread almost every week and each time I get a new question.

I crawled under my TJ and I can see from where he got the extra 1" space for the front coils. the Front coils are hanging 1" above the axle shaft. As mudb8 explained, a 2.5" coils only gave him 1.5" of lift upfront.

As I understand from the other threads, relocating the rear coils will not give any extra lift. But will it give extra travel ?

I say this because Mr. Mud used a 1.5" BS with 2.5" coils and still was able to get 6" up travel.

One more thing. Does this also mean that the YRLS truck got 1.5" lift up front and 2.5" rear ?

Question. When you welded your double shear bracket to the factory frame side front track bar bracket did you have to preheat or anything special? Is that a casting or forging? Looks cast due to the surface and parting line but wanted to ask. About to do the same mod here in a week or so. Just made the bracket and got a bushing kit from Ruffstuff for the track bar itself. Thanks!

ok, I realized that he added 2" BB to the front. So, It is basically 2" lift front and rear.

Teaser.....lol, nick's LJ @ jeepwest
R&P of oregon city ,or pressed 3/8" axle tubes in the housing that used to reside under my rubi, it was badly bent. All hand built bracketry aside from the towers with the ford logo on them. The arms are nth degree, we ditched the gyro's and put johnny joints in their place after modifying the frame mounts. The stinger was all messed up so I built a new one...

This deserves asking again... does anyone have any news on CB3? He hasn't been on JF since 6/11.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
