Default Rockwelled Grand Cherokee

well i have noticed that some were interested in pictures of the exo caged ZJ. yes rockwells are going under it with 44s. i have three pictures i snapped last night when i got it on the ground for the first time. i havent had much time to work on it lately i have been pritty busy with other stuff.

it will sit about 3 inches lower than it does in these pictures i have not adjusted anything. also it is not close to done yet. i hated this thing but now it is unreal it will be bad ass now and capable with the front and rear steer it should help this over weight big beast get around corners.

It has a 118" inch wheel base now. the whole sub unibody has been 3/16 plated on all sides front to back then the new suspension was added on with johnny joints on both ends on each link. with 2" 1/4 wall dom uppers and 2.25" 3/8" wall lowers. detroit lockers in the diff's and full hydro steering from PSC. not to mention it has a 4 speed atlas now. the drive shafts are 1410 u joints with 1/8" wall tubes. this think should be a tank.

i think it will weigh a lot more now haha but he will be beating the hell out of this rig i can promise that. there is still a lot more to do on this considering i have been working on this rig for him on my own time to finish it and get it out on the trail.

here are a few pictures. not great pictures but you get the picture the wheel wells and a lot more still need to be finished and it will sit 3 inches lower at ride height.

If you are serious, those 8-Ball thingies are called gussets, and you can get them at Staz Works. He has many different styles of gussets to choose from.

that thing is one bad ass uni-body.... I love it!! Glad to see her on all fours.

I have seen the suspension, and how it was built on this first hand, and it is amazing craftsmanship and is going to work amazing as well.... With a very low center of gravity, wide stance, and good belly clearance should be a very capable rig!! awesome work Jason!!
