Default Another 1ton YJ "56k beware"

So i started a jeep build awhile ago. Its had 3 motors, two trannys, and two sets of axles so far. Its also never been on the road or finished. time to finish the project.

Motor: 5.3L chevy
Tranny: 4L60
Adaptor: custom, drawn and cnc milled by me
T-case: flipped 300 with Stak replace-a-case and 32 spline outputs
Axle's: i bought rock jock high pinion 60 centers and some large tube. i did all the machining myself and the setting of the gears and lockers (detroit). i have 35 spline CroMo axle shafts that i splined myself.
suspension: 4-link with sway away nitrogen shocks. the lowers will end up being aluminum and the uppers will be DOM. Johnny joints will be used on the bottom.

The goal,,,,a low Jeep on 40's.

some of the eariler pictures

it made it outside, very temperary 4-link,no shocks

at this point i decided to cut the axles and change them
it was for the better, i needed the clearance.

i am going to run a PSC steering, so i cut my self a bracket.

they slide together with the slots

ride height,

this is at full compression.
