I still run the rockers I picked up from you about 8-9 years ago, albeit seriously modified since then.

And I still have the tie rod and drag link you gave me about the same time. Circle of life.

big day today. built the rear spring hangers and burned them in, slung the front axle under ,dropped it on the tires and relocated the steering box. Moving on to the rear stretch tomorrow. The friend helping me is moving out of state in a few weeks so want to take advantage of getting all the heavy stuff done now and will come back to add in the gussets, finish up welding and the steering parts.

meanwhile another friend is swapping the clutch on his CJ and someone else is coming over tomorrow with his new gladiator to put in a locker or something. Busy driveway

Man, all that spring outboarding looks like a lot of work. Wouldn't have been that much more just to link it

made a lot of progress today, but nothing you can really see. Finished welding everything on the front. The only thing left is the tie rod, drag link, shock mounts and mount the ram. Got done for the day and move it into position to start on the rear.

friend of friend brought this thing over to put ARBs in it. Turns out he had the wrong carrier bearings so did not get it done. I don't know the back story and did not get around to ask but apparently this thing was built for SEMA a couple years ago.

Anytime you need a hand Jeff feel free to contact me. I'm pretty much free now as my builds are done*


*(Borrowed some tools to make a shoe rack/cat tree combination, and modified a couch to add in "drawers" below it).

With the front stretch, you may need to notch the bottom of the grill to clear the power steering lines. I did but I moved mine 3.5"

Looking good.

I spent my money on it too. No regrets at all. I can move the whole rig just by turning the steering wheel.
