Having it follow the driveshaft angle is a good idea, it can act as a skid plate for the driveshaft.

Traction bar turned out easy. The one I had was a ruff stuff with a single tube design. But, the tube is 1/4 thick wall so I extended it with another piece of 1/4 wall tube, added a gusset tube and moving on. Still not liking the heat and humidity this week.

I'm back. Went back east to visit my mom for about 10 days and returned to a heat wave so not much progress. In the home stretch though. Finished runnining all the hard and soft lines for the brakes, changed out the wheel studs to the corrrect length, put on the rotors and calipers and bolted the tub back down. The tub was the worst. The frame is all square and plumb but the tub is kind of bashed in so it was a real chore to man handle it back in place, plus two of the mounts had punched thru the floor.

final to-do list.

bleed the brakes
bleed the steering
splice the tub back together
widen trailer
test run

Finally got the pile back on all 4 tires and drove it around the block. All good but couple issues. First the front drive shaft was the right length by dumb luck, but it's really not; not enough spline engagement so need to lengthen. Second the brakes. I seem to have enough braking power with the stock TJ booster but the pedal goes to the floor. My theory is the master is just not moving enough fluid for these gigantic super duty calipers. Open to any ideas and searching in the meantime. Otherwise, really happy with the whole thing.

I did the Ram 2500 MC in mine. Seems to be working very well for me.

thx, I'll look into that. what info do you have?

the matching F250 master is not very expensive but the reservoir is so tall I don't think I could close the hood

Thanks. I had nothing to lose by trying it with the existin master but I had my doubts; it just does not move enough fluid to shift all four huge calipers.

After some research it appears the dodge version for the 1999+ 2500 van might have a lower profile tank so ordered one from rockauto, only $50 shipped and it is supposed to bolt right up to the TJ booster

They have one on close out for $22 but the communists here in CA will not let them sell it to me because they have not paid the proper bribes to make it legal in this state.

Really happy this project is 99% done

Amazing isn't it? I ordered some vent visors for my Super Duty and Summit wouldn't ship them because they weren't CARB approved (didn't realize sunshades caused green house gasses). Had to submit a thing to them stating it was for race use only, for visors....

Can't wait to retire and GTFO.

The latest is the Prop 65 warning where there is a declaration of "The state of California has determined that anything we don't approve of causes cancer..." Any one not living here can not possibly understand it.

I read multiple threads on the 2500 master, some people had clearance issues and some didn't. I wonder if theres a slight difference between the old 87-91 vs 91-95 brake mounting location.

I got mine from Napa. The guys there are pretty cool/helpful and I told them what I was doing. They brought out both the truck and van masters for me and they were identical. I read the same thing that the van ones were supposed to be smaller but, maybe theyre not anymore?

I also read in a pirate thread that someone flipped the booster to lower the master with no ill effects.

thx, will find out soon enough. I have a TJ booster with a custom brackete Mr Blaine made for me so it's pretty close to the firewall. If just the plastic tank is the problem I'll figure out some mod for that or make a cool little dog house on the hood.

I didn’t have any clearance issues with the truck version on the stock YJ booster. I did have to fiddle with the pushrod length a little to get it just right. Had it too long at first and the rear brakes locked up and wouldn’t release. I got it dialed in perfect now though.

While waiting for my master I need to ponder the front drive shaft. I pushed the front axle forward a couple inches, but the snout is longer so the end result was it just about fit. However the pumpkin is a litte to the left and the pinion is a little lower relative the the D30 so the end result is the shaft reaches but with very little spline engagement. My thinking is I probably need more room for compression than I do extension. As it sits now the spline is about 8 inches with about 6 showing; almost certain to fall out. Seems like I should reverse that by making it about 4" longer. Make sense?
