I'll get the measurements in the mourning. I was planning on posting them up once I got it all fined tuned. Had to cut one back down an 1" to allow for adjustments. Carpentry skills in play there being measure to a tight fit.

As far as the track bar I'm thinking of running a double ended heim joint stright bar over the axle. Was thinking a bushing on the axle and joint at the frame. but using the same size stock being 1 1/2" x .25 wall and get tube ends to insert then my joints.

Tie rod is - 43 1/4" (tube end to tube end)
Draglink- 33 1/2" (tube end to tube end)


I ran a LH thread on the end of the stock on the left side of jeep and RH thread joints on the right hand side. This is what allow you to adjust your steering, then use lock nuts to secure them in place.

Alright well you know you love jeeps and are broke when you change your own tires manually...
Well I got the 35's on, a free set of bald ones, but I want to see how she goes before I go and get a a good set to put on there. If I no likely then going to keep running 33's.

Well I saved $40 that I didn't have and changed my own tires. Took all day and the way I fell now I do not recommend it to anyone. "Work smarter not harder", has never met so much until now. But their on. :rock on:






As well as got my Co2 tank for my trail spare air tank, just have to get the necessities to go with it now. Thinking I may just go through here for my needs... http://www.redrock4x4.com/shop/categories/82_400.html



Then made some adjustments to my steering due to the taper in the knuckle, just put in a misalignment spacer in on the bottom side of the knuckle to fill the knuckle in and keep the bolt from see-sawing and working it self loose and causing my loose steering.

did it on the road. Being a dumba$$ and pissed at the old lady and let her loose out of the drive on the side of the road then went to bring the rear around and with the tires bald it came around more/faster than I thought then she caught the edge of the road and went.still runs but she needs a new convertiable top now.

Hmmm.... looks a little familiar, I think mine was a little more pancaked tho. That sucks man, you just got this thing going. I agree, you should just cut the shit out of it and turn it into a caged out cherokee. Good luck either way.

Nope going to keep this one pretty and nice. Going with a budget 3in and some 31's for some hauling ability of my tools and a light trailer. This one is so solid if I want to in a year I may just convert this one as well to 4wd like the green one.
