Well I got it plated and insured this week. I got a lot of the brake issues worked out, but still working to get a better pedal feel. I got to drive it about 10 miles or so tonight without any major problems. The only problem currently is the cover on the bottom of the 300 t case is leaking, so I will pull it of maybe Sunday morning and clean the surfaces again and put some good sealant on there instead of the gasket that they come with. Drives and rides pretty good, If I really matt it going around a turn I can get the suspension to unload, that makes for some funny looks from people sitting at a light watching me turn. I have a lot of little bs stuff to still take care of on it, but it should be fun to drive while the weather is nice. Have a pig roast tomorrow to go to that is a few miles away that I will take it to for some more test driving. I don't want to go to far from my house with it at the moment until I get little stuff worked out and I can feel confident that it will get me home. Finished pics to come soon.

I saw it. It looks great. I don't know how you can take it offroad and destroy that high dollar paint job.

Digging this up for some advice, looking to do a pass drop dodge 60 in a Tj and wondered if you have a few pics of the front drive shaft and how the track bar/drag link worked out?

I'll try to get pics tonight or tomorrow. I built a bridge over the pig and attached my upper link mount and track bar to it. So the track bar goes from the bottom side of the drivers side frame to the top of the pig and at ride height is almost flat.

If you want to donate that 60 I'll build it and put it in to be the guinnea pig and notify you of potential problems Thats the next thing on the list of things to do actually, I just need the axle

Thanks.

I just happen to have the dodge housing laying around and figured why not Plus it is a 4 banger so I can run some 5.86's or something to help out in the lack of ponies.

I remember following this build thread back in 07'. Curious how it turned out and if it wheeled to your expectations. Do you have any recent pics or vid of it in action or even still own it ?
