Time to start over... (update with pics 6/28)

Here is my 98 TJ sport I started with from stock.



It ended up with a 4.5" short kit with rubi axles on 37" Iroks.



Here are the new build specs:
3 Link Front
Triangulated 4 link rear
4-5" rear stretch
5-6" front stretch
Front king pin Dana 60 pass drop 5:89 gears with Detroit locker
Rear Dana 60 5:89 gears locked rear disc conversion spooled
Hydro assist steering
14" Coilovers up front
Coils in rear (unless I find more $$ )
350 tbi with AFI harness
700R4
Dana 300
38.5" TSL SXs on H1 8 bolt beadlocks


Out with the engine & axles



Getting the brackets stripped from the frame




I hope to get the engine mounts mocked up this week & start collecting parts to get the rear suspension started.

Are you selling off the old stuff? Can't wait to see how your build goes. Good luck.

Damn Steve...you must be making waaayyyy too much money now that you jumped ship to ITC! Sounds like an awesome build, looking forward to seeing it complete.

We will have to get together some time when it is all finished up and do some wheeling.
