Thought I looked into those till I saw the ones at least for my rear 60 said they were 1541H which is better than stock but not much
I can adjust my steering stops, but I don't want to. I hate to lose the steering angle. I am going to clearance a bit, put everything together, and then adjust the stops only if I have to.

The Motive shafts are 4340 as well at the USA Standard Gear inner.

Exciting news for DaddyJeep... not so much for my axles though. I just made a deal on a set of 40" Nittos. I am picking them up Saturday.

In other big news.... I get to go wheeling with Holly from Mischief Maker in June. This will be great recognition for my Youtube channel. It is also why I am pushing now to make my Jeep more capable. Ugh, I have way too many projects again. I really need to quit my job so I have more time.

Awesome news about the wheeling trip and 40s!!

I completely agree and hate when work gets in the way of important things like working of the Jeep!!

I had planned to hit one of the locations they were wheeling this season. My body had other ideas. I think you can make your axles live with 40s, but you gotta change the way you drive. Lol

Yeah.... hopefully they get your back functional again. That's no fun.

Changing the way I drive??? That is going to be tough. I am pretty sure I can baby them through until I get the big axles put together. I am going to make sure that I am no longer over steering the joints, which I believe is what has been causing all my stretched and broken ear problems.

So much to do now to make 40's work.... Crawl ratio will be my next hurdle. I need to get moving on my doubler. Then there is steering. I really need some hydro assist.

My latest Crawler Hauler video is up. I am going to get back to some Jeep videos real soon. I have my front axle to put together and my fo-dees that will get some air time. I found a set of used steelies, but I am second in line. Hopefully the first guy passes on them. $150 for a set of 17x10 Black Rock wheels. I have all of my axle shafts in finally and my spool is on the way. I also have a bunch of work to do on a buddy's Jeep. I'm doing a wheel bearing, welding on a new axle side control arm bracket, installing tube fenders and corner armor, sway bar disconnects, door handles, and some exhaust work.

You know.... a 40 is quite a bit bigger than a 35. You would think it is just 5", that's not very much. Here is my 35" Cooper Stt in front of the new 40" Nitto trail Grappler.



They look pretty fantastic rolled under the DaddyJeep and somewhat positioned correctly.



So before I was going to 40's I had planned on calculating my current steering angle and modifying my axle yokes to work with that. Now that I have 40's I will have to limit my steering a bit. This is good news I suppose. I will be covering this in more detail in an upcoming video, but here are the cliff notes. I am currently steering 30 degrees in one direction and 36 in the other. The maximum steering angle for a 1310 u-joint is 30 degrees so I have definitely been oversteering them. Now, with the 40's, I am going to have to limit my steering by 12 degrees to keep the tires out of the radius arms. That should keep my axles happy with a steering angle around 24 degrees. This was all rough measuring since I don't have wheels yet. Here is all of my figuring on the floor...



Speaking of wheels. I sold my 35's to a buddy for enough to buy some new wheels. He showed up to pick up 4 35's in a Dodge Dart.... I thought he was insane, but we shoved them in there.



One in the trunk and 3 in the back seat. Good thing he isn't real tall.



I am ordering these today from Summit.

I'm going to have to be real careful until the big boy axles are ready.

24 of steering is going to bring the suck. Hopefully you can fix that when you change axles.

That is a true statement. I wasn't real happy with the 30 I had. The front suspension is going to be completely redone for the new axles and the links will definitely provide more clearance for steering than the current radius arms do. Plus the axles are wider and I will buy correct wheels instead of temporary wheels so less offset will help too. Without spending a bunch of money on wheels I was stuck with 4" of backspacing.

I suppose if I were a more patient man I would have stacked those 40's in a corner until the Jeep was ready for them.

I got the new wheels coated in a half a dozen coats of Plasti Dip over the weekend and a few coats of florescent green. Then the fun part of wrestling them onto the wheels commenced. We got it done and actually got them on the Jeep. My front axle is empty at the moment as I am waiting for my spool to show up, but I did put the hubs back on so I could at least drive it a little and put it on the ramp to look for clearance issues. I have not measured yet, but I do have more steering than I thought I was going to have so I am real happy about that. I did have some interference with the rear tire and the shock on compression. I was concerned about that. I am going to have to get some spacers. Those giant side lugs on the Nittos are not going to be good for my shocks.

Vision Soft 8 wheels in 17x8



White Plasti Dip base coat



Green top coat



Finished wheel



Here they are all mounted up and on the Jeep.



Flexed out a bit. I checked for clearance for my fender flares and everything looks good there. Really, everything is clearing fine except for the rear shocks.



Now, on to those half doors that I picked up for nothing...

As received in crappy blue paint.



and original red inside.



After a little time with some 220 grit.



I lost some pics of the inside of the doors apparently, but they are flat black inside. Here is the finished outside.

I put together my press brake last night. Now I can get going on some fender flares.
