I looked at the link there and they have some nice stuff I'll most likely order from them but it will be down the road. I need to be schooled on what PVC incerts are and what the run flats r for. If they come with a double beadlock why need run flats? I can see the rock rings r just for protection but tell me what the PVC incerts do

to interupt your wheel disscusion :) ,,,

Check out UCF they have some nice upgrade brackets for the RC long arm, and their brackets also change the rear to 4 link rather then radius arms

The runflat is what makes them a double beadlock. The inner rim and the outer ring sandwich the bead of the tire to the runflat.

Ok I got it now so to have it be a double beadlock I need the runflats or the PVC inserts, So I will prolly get a set of H1s once I get the rig going again.
I'm about to go out and start trimming some of the brackets I dont need off. Then I just gotta get money around to order all my new stuff

pulled the gas tank today to see how much more room I'll have under there and wow lots of room. Started to cut off the upper coil buckets to move em in the middle of the hump instead of on the edge. Also started cutting the rear track bar mount off the frame. The front coil buckets on the frame I'll leave but the axle ones I'll have to move the passenger side a little but the drivers side will work. heres the pix from today

Got the other side frame cleaned up already, I'm going to use part of the stock coil mount but I'm going to beef it up and center it in the arch which will give me 2 to 3in stretch plus the front coil mounts r not giong to be offset like stock TJ axle end coil mounts so that will move it up 2 to 3in. So i'm going to get a 4 to 6in stretch out of doing this didn't really plan to stretch it just the way its gunna work. I'll make up the frame mounts this week then hopefully order up some of the mounts next week

Plus I bought U-joints today holy hell 54 bucks each and they r massive

Well got the new Ujoints in the axle shafts and now I'm gunna try and figure out how to get my fuel sending unit into my fuel cell

Also I'll be making all the brackets I need instead of buying em. I'll start on the brackets most likely this weekend then get em taced in and lined up
I only need the front uppers and track bar mounts and that's set, I might buy that from roughstuff since its only 100 some bucks with the frame and axle mount plus the bar and joints for it so that's a good deal I'd say
Then the rear needs axle mount coil buckets, upper control arm frame mounts and to move my framw coil mounts to the center of the frame arch so I really could have it all in by october if I worked my ass off on it
Its been way too long since I've wheeled it so I'm itchin to get out and see how these axles hold up

Didn't get any pix from tonight but had the old lady out cleaning the front axle up with a wire wheel. She was enjoying herself, I'll be taking the hubs to a buddy's to get the deully's machined down so they will be single wheel hubs now. Also going to another buddy's place to cut out all my brackets and get those rdy. So if I can get done what I have planned 2moro I'll have alot done and not that much to do.

I'm gettin there. Going to make a tablet for the axle tube mounts then all I really need is the upper arm mounts which with the Rough Country kit mounts that are on there I'll be able to just mount em right to that. Its gunna be easy really. I hope.

Well I'll be sure and take lots of pix 2moro cuz thats when I'll be getting the most of the work done. Watch for updates 2moro afternoon.

Well I still didn't get any pix but I have most of the rear brackets made up just need to make the rear upper frame mounts but I think I might buy those since the angle. I ordered a plasma tig/arc welder combo yesterday so that will be here next week and I'll get the rear all in there. Need to order a few more johnny joints tho the 2.5in are pricey damnit.

Really once I get the welder I can weld all the brackets to the rear axle get my frame coil mounts in, then move the one front coil mount on the axle and make a truss and mount for my steering ram oh and order a ram too. I have a beefy bar with heims at one end so I'll need a bit of hardware there.

Lots of money goes into this man, how do you guys order like thousands of dollars in new parts like you do. I see pix of ppl buying a ram a whole truss knuckles that adds up fast man?
hopefully have the joints and the rest of the mounts and ram by next month. I'll try and get some pix once I start welding brackets on

Well because my front axle is not a 78-79 model I only have a few choices to center the axle so I just ordered a set of 14in travel fox air shocks to put in the front. I'm going to just make my own shock boxs in the front and leave the bumpstops where they are for now. A bunch of my parts should be here this week so I'll get some pix up then. I have one to show how there isn't much room to move the coil bucket around on the drivers side and one to show the 38s under the front, the jeep will sit prolly 3 to 4 inchs higher tho so I would be able to drive it out of the garage with them on it I have a set of rollers for that, haha heres the pix

Back to the fuel pump/ sender in the fuel cell.
Check out GenRight (we are a dealer) they make a bolt in fuel pump ring that I used on a XJ with a fuel cell.
Worked real nice.

Hey thanks for the info on the sending unit, I'd like to just use the stock pump so that would be nice, I'll check into it. I'm going to put air shocks in the front so it might come down a little bit. If funds go right I'll be getting a set for the rear too. So then that would really let me fine tune how high its gunna sit.
I'll prolly make up my own shock mounts so again that will give me alot of options on how high it'll be. I'll get some pix 2moro of how things r going.
Thanks for the help again with the fuel pump
Wally
