Noice, I like the link mounts for the axle... Wish I would have done that for mine incorporating the shock tabs..

Thanks!

I just found out that my tires will be arriving today, I cant wait to fondle the new compound!

I have a lot to do but my plan is to have it a roller by the end of the month.... might be a little tricky but once I get the brackets from Tab things go together quickly!

Maybe it's the pics, but the rear axle offset looks massive....like you should be running a flipped Dana 18 or a Monster-truck t-case layed on it's side. Clearence is nice, but what kind of angles are you running to get that clearence?

Maybe you could machine a new front output bearing retainer for the Atlas that will hold a stub shaft chain driven off the rear output.

from the side view, it seems like your seat is kinda far behind the b-pillar, almost to the point that your melon would exposed behind it due to the angled downbars.

seems like a lot of work just to get a couple more inches of offset or a better driveline angle.... I think it'll be about a 15-20 degree angle to get the offset... it looks worse than it is because the t-case is offset to the passengers side 3" and the axle is the opposite way. if they ever come out with an offset rear output for the atlas I'd look into it and I'd then push the diff over further. this isnt built to go 100 miles an hour for hours so driveline angles arent high on my priority list.... clearing something that would otherwise hang me up is up there. one nice thing with the hi-9's is that the pinion is 2" below the t-case output at ride height with 5" of travel in the rear.

the edge of the long side tube and the center section is the center of the rear axle... the pinion might only be 6" offset, I had it a lot more but I dont think I could have made it work without a $1000 rear driveshaft so I took teh safe route and moved it back to the center 4"

the seat is just sitting on 2x4's and that's the only flat spot I could get with the shifters and t-case being in the way... it'll be about 2-3" further forward and 2" lower when it's mounted. I actually have too much leg room (and I have a 34-36" inseam), I almost cant get my feet to the A pillar, at least not comfortably.

I'm extremely pleased that you finally got smart enough to build a real offroad rig..........A JEEP.

And I agree with Casey.......... nice clean lines.
