SPECS: 00 XJ, 4.0 AW4, 242, HP 44 & 9" 3.50 gears, 37/12.50/15 IROCs & 39 bolt beadlocks, ACOS and stock TJ coils, bastard dakota-xj leafs... about 5"

how did you link it i see the ford radius arm mounts on the axle are you running a stock mount or are you running a jonny joint
and what rear disc setup did you use?
either way looks great i have the same build on mine except its a 01 with 36s and a bit more lift

i'm not too happy with my mounts at this point (but they work, so they will stay for awhile) just factory bushing on a homebrew cross member (it came with the axles) i have some jonny joints for them, i just haven't made a new cross member

the brakes are some dodge rotors (i had to turn down the axle flange so the rotor would fit over them) chevy calipers, and factory chevy caliper mount (from dana 44) cut all to hell and welded on the back side of the axle flange

getting closer to being done... well getting closer anyway, it will never be done

just need to finish adding a little bump stop, bolting on the skids, and my temporary rear recovery point... then take it for a test spin to see what else i need to do before leaving thurs

getting ready to install 4.56 gears, and a new 31 spline full spool in the rear (as the 28 spline shaft didnít fair so well at the badlands), also a detroit true-trac up font... do any of you have any experience with the true-trac? i don't think i want a full locker in the front with stock shafts and 37's, so with the true-trac i feel it would be safer... any thoughts

my spool


true-trac


my broken shaft (yes it hurt, but it is healing nicely)


and the heap after mounds opening day

no advice on the tru-trac yet but my 44 has one in it and will be going under my xj with 36-37" tires and 5.13's but no first hand experience but i think you are thinking right about not wanting a full locker up front
