Here is a pic of the rear axle and some brackets. All is just tacked right now. Rear truss will get triangle peices of 1/4" welded front and back all the way to the pumpkin before its done. Should be plenty strong.

Uppers ^





Rear axle. Almost done. Got to add a little bit more bracing and some longer bump stops. Ended up with about 9" of seperation at the axle end and a little over 5 on the frame end. Cycled the suspension with no coils in it and pinion never moves more than about 2*. Uppers will hit the bottom of the body, so that is why i need to add the bump stops. Tomorrow it should be sitting on its own. In the rear i using V8 ZJ stock front springs and it seems to sit pretty level.

Quickly snapped these today. I have a few things to change, rear bump stops need some attention. Need to add rear shocks and break lines to the front and rear. Once that is all done i need to start putting the trans back in and then install the sye, driveshafts and bleed the brakes. Im sure there is lots more but Hey.
