First drive of the new build

So I know alot of you know me and my Jeep how it was before, but I decided to redo alot!
Its been a long winter and spring swapping axles and lots of other things on my YJ.

I made a video(below) of the test drive, but ive done alot of vids of the build, check out my channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/FlawedOffr...confirmation=1

I could type for hours all the stuff ive done so Ill just give a basic rundown of what I did,

axles:78 f250 hp44 front and dana 60 rear

60: trussed, bored spindles for 35 spline chromoly shafts, 513 gears, ox locker, el dorado disc brakes

44: reid knuckles, yukon sure grip(or dura grip), chromoly shafts, c gussets, all new lockouts and bearings, 1.5" .25 wall steering links in crossover(plan on getting both above the leafs soon)

re centered h1 wheels I built from TWF

I switched the jeep to Spring over axle (SOA) and used new 7 leaf wagoneer springs. (removed 2 leafs in rear and 1 in front) this gives me 2" of stretch on each end, plus 1 extra inch in rear with offset perches

Major mods to the fuel tank/skid to clear the axle and its still questionable lol.

Brakes: all new stainless hard lines, stainless AN hoses on front and used a 90 ram w150 rear brake hose for extra length in rear, 4 wheel disc, dodge 2500 master cylinder, proportion valve from an XJ with the guts from a ZJ that came with 4w disc, double booster from a 95 yj, I think that about covers that.

If you want to see anything more in detail or have any questions post em up, or hit up my normal build thread!
