Default Project Farfetched

Far fetched because it is far to long a build and crazy overkill
Plans:
Body
98 tj tub stretched 15" to match a LJ tub length, front half Tj frame pinched in on the rear and back half of a mandrel bent early cj5 frame.

Axles/Tires
Chevy 3500hd rear Dana 80 5.38 welded, hubs machined to 8x170mm bolt pattern and 99-04 super duty f-350 front brakes

Dana 80 center section, real super 60 knuckles out. 99-04 f-450 rotors and 05 up calipers. 5.38 gears and Detroit locker.

would like 47" LTBs but still waiting for them to come out in a 20" rim. Might have to settle on 46" claws

Suspension
Tri 4 with 16" 2.5" SAW coil overs front
Rear double triangulated 4 link 14" SAW coil overs

Steering
POS Hydro

Engine/Trans/Tcase
351w roller cam motor with gt40 goodies, Aod with 4r70w goodies, 203/205 doubler

What I started with (old pic)


Lots of pics and hopefully some good tech.

Not quite, but yes it will be similar. I have had this idea from before I saw that one. Just finally have a chance to build it. Hard to change a good thing

I was gonna build dana 60's and 42's but that gets way to expensive.

Are you going to drive it on the road at all?

Rocks become quickly more expensive than 60's if you plan on making them street able.

I plan on doing the ouverson Super 8 LINK conversion, which will make them more streetable. It will be full hydro so I don't plan on driving it on the street much, plus I think I would stick out alittle :tonka:

Even with the cost of the super 8 it will still be more than 1/2 the price of two built steering 60's

I have seen those before, they are bling. I have never checked pricing though... are they really $750 a peice just for the hub?

Sort of, you get hub/brakes/caliper/drive slug and I beleive bearings/seals. So it really is a good price.

Can't wait either, should be going real soon.
