The tube was 3x5x1/4wall it still need bracing under it to keep it from bending.

Alot of jeeps end up with the compound angle in the rear driveshaft after an 8.8 conversion. Most say it is not a problem???

Nice build!

Thanks for the info I have decided to run it and find out. If it vibrates i can always change it later.

I took a brake from the cage and got the steering done.











Nessary to remove the chunk of over load spring to make room for the draglink.


















all that is left is to hook up lines untill I get the Hydro assist.

There will be bumpstops from (Marvin Shaw) in there to keep the springs from going that far backword and making it more fun to jump. This should not kill overall flex that much.

You gonna come back up and help? Harlan the Nov.1 would be kick ass. I will have to turn into superman to get it done, but I will give it a shot. That sounds like a hardcore shakdown run. I will be working on the cage tonight.

I'll be lucky to be ready by Nov1, If I go it will be with the lower springs, no way I'm going like it is. About lost my mind last time, too easy to flop.
Colds suck by the way...

P.S. What's with the single hoop? You could hang a swing in the back
