Default Update 9-22

Okay, here some pics.
I got the manual out and the auto in (thanks Tab for the loaner) Got the rear frame cut and started planning my attack for the Rear frame. BTF informed me that my rear frame kit would take a month to be here and $600 for it so Im going to make my own. Also with the auto in there I now have a flat skid.. So if my calc. are correct at 71 in tall I should have a center skid of about 19"... I was going to use this CJ tail gate but with my new rear bumper the hinge wont work like I want it so its now for sale.. Make an offer. So later this week I'll show some more progress.

This is my back half idea.
red planes: Body/ location for old/new frame meet
blue planes: Angle for the tube to be cut
Purple planes: heights of the frame
black planes: body mount
The other little bits sticking out are fish plates and yes there will be plates on the inside aswell.

Made with 2.5x4" Rec. tube .188" wall. And i will make the bumper angled and D-ring mounts will be in there somewhere

Design and material selection all looks good. Have you thought about where your coil over shocks will need to mount and if the frame will need to notched for them. Unless the frame is narrow enough than it won't be any problem for you. I only ask cause I saw this at the mounds on Sunday. I wish I had took a picture of just the coilovers where they passed the frame but he had to notch the frame around 2" deep and 6" long to place them where he did. It looked real good and boxed in very well.

with cutting the rear frame off like he did will allow coilovers with no notching. I know this cause i have a BTF rear frame section on my red tj.

I was ordering the BTF kit but was told it was going to take a few weeks due to materials. So I bought the materials from my work. 24 feet for 190. 2x4 .188 wall. And my air shocks are going to mount to a bar that is going from my B - C piller like this one here... But I will add my little touches.

if you ever need to take measurments, your more than willing to come take a look. Maybe you'll get me focused on working on my TJ again

Heres some of my full hydro mount ideas.












40* steering.
I was also told that for proper steering that at full lock the steering links need to be one parallel line at the top view and the front view.. I almost have it completely parallel but if try to lift it any more by fixing the one side the other gets messed up and also at full compression of my suspension it will hit the bottom of the radiator.

Well I stole your idea... Hope you dont mind.. But as soon as I get back from my trip to the Bahamas for my bday. (last Sunday) I will be going all out on it.. Also If I make a detailed drawing and if I bring you the materials. How hard would it be to take the information and make the peices outta 3/8s and bend the main section..

Thants cool, you told me you liked it and were going to try and fit that design into your build. It wouldnt be hard at all to do that. It would probably only take a couple of minutes to do, even less if you have the part already drawn up in basic cad. Have fun on your trip.
