After many late nights and long weekends the Jeep now sits on all 4's What a relief that is. Still a long way to go but it now feels like I'm making actual progress.




Put my dads bone stock CJ next to it for kicks.


Departure angle


Approach angle, the hitch will be cut off the front. My tires will be past the bumper.

rig looks good. what size are your upper superflex joints? Small or large? What do you plan to do for a rear bumper and how are you thinking of attaching it?

Oh ya, I saw you're putting an NV3550 in instead of the AX15....do you need one, I'd be interested in a trade? I actually want to get an auto for my jeep instead but have been to lazy to find someone that would want to try and trade me. Mine's a 2000 and has ~60k on it.

Thank for all the compliments, it means a lot to hear people say good things about the work you do. I'm extremely happy with how it turned out so far, especially since this is my first ever build and I did 100% of it with my own 2 hands.

I would assume they are the large ends. I bought them at Mad 4wd. They are about 2 5/8" dia. with the control arms being 1.5" 1/4 wall DOM. I have a couple ideas floating in my head about a rear bumper but nothing permanent yet. I open for suggestions since you see a lot of builds at your brothers shop. I was thinking running a hoop from frame rail to frame rail under the rear of the tub by the rearmost body mounts and tieing 2 tubes from that going forward to the crossmember where the frame starts to turn up. Then I could make bumpstops off those. I already have the trans, sorry I can't trade you. It would be a thought if I had an auto though.

I guess it would depend on what you want. Price can vary on how much fabbing you want done.

Got a chance to build my inner wheel wells this weekend.


Passenger side. I will have a bolt on cap to cover the top of the frame. It needs to be removable to get to the shock bolt and schrader valve on the shock for tuning.


Drivers side

When I get a fill neck for the fuel cell I made and put it on I will sink the cell halfway into the floor.






I scored an insta-trunk for cheap that will be put in the back. I will seal it up tight which should keep the fumes out of the passenger compartment. I think I will put some sound deadener on the inside to quiet the pump down too.

Got my caps for covering the frame coming through the wheel wells done tonight. A little refining to do to them but it will give an idea what it is supposed to do.

Looks really good, Just a side note when you do the final install on the rear calipers to put the bleeder upwards. I am sure you did it downwards for mock up to not kink the airline.

Actually if you look close enough the bleeder is up on top, the air line is tapped into the banjo bolt hole. Thanks for the heads up though.
