1 ton Rubicon build

Well, Ive had my rubicon for a bit and its time to change before i head out to Colorado next year for school.

Figured the winter was a good time to go to 1 tons. I built the jeep up pretty mall crawler before deciding to go to 1 tons but theres no turning back now.

Plans
14 bolt FF Shaved w/ 5.38's Detroit locked and Disk brake conversion
88' Kingpin Dana 60 w/ 5.38's
Ballistic hi-steer arms
PSC full hydro
RCI 2161A Fuel cell, Stock Tj pump

Poly 3 link front
Clayton triangulated rear stretch
Genright Coilover hoops and rear mounts.
ballistic 14" remote coilovers

42x14 Iroks on KORE beadlocks.

Going to be pretty slow build for now since im in school, but come mid December should be kicking it into hi-gear


Buy American...

Started to take the 44's out



14FF starting to clean it up/ starting disk brake conversion

looking good so far but do your self a favor get the jackstands on better ground. ive seen blocks crumble before and the wood really should be on the four corners.

agin im not trying to sound like your mom and i always like to see other builds. just watch out thats all.

1993 YJ 4.0 60 Front, Rear steer 60, bolth spooled, 5.38's, 700r/241 39.5 iroks and beating it like it owes me money.

And on the 8th day, God created the 14 bolt...

Looks like a good winter project. Any chance that you are selling the 44's?

Painted the 14 bolt, still waiting on Caliper brackets from ballistic fab to mount he calipers



Picked up the 1988 D60 Kingpin, started to cut off tie-rod, drag link, other stuff. Its going to be a little more work than the 14 bolt i think.

JC, that's gonna be a hell of a rig.

edit: I'm about to go fw 44/60 so I'll be watching... Clayton makes brackets front and rear, high steer and all if you're interested.
