Default Project-Maybe I'll finish this one

This old girl has been passed around the board a bit..I am actually going to try and finish this one, slow progress till I'm done with school in but little by little it'll get done.

YJ tub on a cj frame that @indy originally built,he did the cage,boat sides and all metal armor on the tub.

Plans are
350 running on propane
Th350/np 205 twin sticked
80s dodge 60 with detriot and 5.13s with a 3 link
14 bolt with 5.13s and welded with double tri 4link
Coil springs front and rear
40-42 inch tires
Full hydro

Have drivetrain and axles waiting to go in,been reading up on the rear tri 4link .Havent typed in any numbers in a calculator but I'm thinking a ball park of 36" lowers 30-33" uppers..using Johnny's and flex joints.

If someone has a calculater and wouldn't mind giving me some tips on the rear link Im all ears.

So up in the air about link material

Run 2x2 square turned on its side

Or pony up 280$ bucks for 170" of 2" .500 wall d.o.m then find a place to tap it for 1.25-14

If i go the square route itll get reinforced with angle

Think im just going to use 2x2 for lower links for now..down the road i can always upgrade to aluminums

So 2x2 lowers and reuse the 1 3/4 i have for the uppers.
