4 link fitment ideas

So I was laying under my jeep this evening dreaming about how I'm going to make my 4 link rear work with everything that is currently underneath there combined with my original plans and goals. First...

Here's a thread I created a while back on how to swap in the 8.8 on a budget... 8.8 in the rear and upgraded axle shafts up front and you'll be able to comfortably run lockers with 35's. If you go...

Not to be offensive but trying to tell it like I see it. I feel your expectations for the jeep and the level of effort you're willing to put in are not lining up. A rear axle swap is cake walk...

My anti-wrap bar sits as close to the driveshaft as I can get it and at about the same angle...maybe 6 inches or so to the side. I'd rather break the anti-wrap bar over the driveshaft any day. That...

Length plays a big part in that flex. Chevy also runs inverted shackles which changes the loading on the shackle as well.

Agreed with above. Only spring stiffness and spring shape can counter axle wrap without an anti-wrap/traction bar and trust me... you want the softest springs you can get away with. Lift springs are...

MAP gas is what I use for quickly heating something that propane likely won't handle. It's more expensive than just propane since you need a special nozzle but my one small bottle from home depot has...

Yeah a cheap (sub $50) impact gun isn't very good. These days, you can get a pretty nice battery powered impact for $100. I have a porter cable impact that I used to take off wheel nuts torqued to...

Aren't flexplate bolts torqued to something crazy like 75 ft-lbs? Your wheels are torqued to just beyond that and no one cries for loctite but if you lose you one, it's going to be pretty...

I was kind of thinking that but I also think that seeing your 30-31" tire in there proves my suspicions that a 35" tire would be way too big.

I basically have a version of that T handle myself. I do like the expanded steel shelf. That may be a much easier solution for the times I do need to carry a spare and maybe even times when I don't....

I've been debating this as well... I carry a plug kit and have a compressor onboard at all times. I also don't carry a jack or a spare tire unless I'm offroad. Realistically, when I'm offroad I'm...

Agreed. I had the exact same setup, 95 4-cyl, 4.10 gears to 4.88 on 33s. Before the gear change, I ran out of engine at 55mph & waiting for 55 was like watching grass grow. Moving to 4.88s, it was...

Yeah I've done roughly 1.5" up front already for better shackles geometry and it looks like I've got about 2" before the pitman arm starts hitting the diff. I'll look into the steering box...

I'm not sure I follow your logic. In stock configuration the rigid mounts create twisting loads on the compressed and drooped leaf springs and shackles. The shackles physically twist under the stress...

I don't ever use a backseat. Sorry if that was confusing. I was just saying that the spare is laying flat where the backseat normally goes.

I disagree with the blind spot though. A 35" tire on...

Is it? I thought the 4.0 airbox on XJ's, ZJ's, TJ's, and YJ's were all basically the same with slight modifications to make them fit where ever was most convenient. I've never held them up side by...

I had that same setup except I had the 95 engine and I went with 4.88's. If you're unhappy with the power, you will still be unhappy after regearing. I rolled with the 4 cylinder with a mediocre...

How do you mount your spare tire? (not on the tailgate or bumper)

My 35" spare is currently mounted on the floor of my Jeep where the backseat is and I'm trying to brainstorm other ideas to regain some space without putting it on the tailgate or a swingout carrier....

I ordered a set so we'll see. Now to decide whether I want to stretch the front axle forward while I've got half of the front suspension removed.... :dunno:
