I have to lower it back down a bit, and do some work to the calipers so they clear on the front but that is pretty close to the stance I wanted

Painting it OD in the summer with Sand or black wheels.

Can't wait for my tax refund now to finish it

Front 44 is out, it is getting a HP 44 for the front. Also cut what was left of the floor out and started to patch it.

Get a pic of it from the back/front to show how narrow it is

Adam took my front shackles home to work on them a bit... Should turn out great!

That should lower it about .5-.75" and then the springs should settle in some more as well.

Adam went and picked this up for me today... thanks Adam, and thank you Fullthrottle

Should give a much better driveshaft angle, lockouts are half the cost (not to mention I already have a set in the garage) and a little bit stronger.

Need a 4.10 and up carrier now, think I will get it in and get the jeep driving first though. I will have to yank it to have it geared.

Threw it in for now... I have to pull it to have it re-geared, and yank the knuckle for machining, so I will paint it and stuff then.

Driveshaft angle is MUCH better





And Adams shackles turned out MUCH better then the old JC Whitney ones it had...

Got a passenger side arm on the way I checked and the crossover steering will clear. I should be able to take the knuckle for machining next week when I get the arm I was able to get in the batch they are making this week

I am having it drilled and reamed for high steer as I will do that in the near future (after the wedding)

Got a LOT done with Adam tonight....

Removed the knuckles so I could take the passenger side for machining, and removed the pitman arm from the drivers side. Ball joints are completely shot and axle seals are gone. One knuckle u-joint is shot.

Adam worked on removing the OBA so we can plumb it with brake line. I roughly knocked the rust off the ait tank and started primering and painting it olive drab. It will be mounted on the rear fender inside now. I don't like the idea of having it underneath where is can get hit, and under the hood looked crummy and cramped the engine bay.

I fixed the free spool feature on my winch that has been jammed for years, but spooling out under power was never that bad so I never worried about it as often as it got used.

Adam brought a cutting disk and finished cutting the kick panel.

I finally called it quits on trying to revive my Optima. These batteries are garbage. I yanked it and will head to Sears this weekend to swap it out hopefully.

The rest of the pics in this thread will start working Feb 20th... but here are the current ones, I hosted them in my fiancee's PB account.

Time to go to UORC to get some machining done

Rockstomper kicks ass, I was originally told 2 week wait for this H1 offset high steer arm, I called up and they were in the middle of a run so he slipped another in for me and was able to get it out dang near same day... I ordered last week and have it today, including 4 days worth of shipping, GREAT people to deal with. When I ordered one, he even asked if I was sure that my tie rod in the crossover was going to clear the wheels as a lot of the time they don't. I had already double checked this, but he was thorough in making sure I got the right parts. VERY happy with their service.
