Getting the old brackets cut off and the new ones fabbed up.

I think it's comparable to a YJ frame. We'll see how it holds up.

Holding it's own weight in the front. Switched out the 2.5" YJ leafs for 4" YJ leafs.

Front axle will be coming back out for steering and adding .25" diff guard to the bottom half.

Lot's of work to do still.

You should sell a kit, then once everyone has them, convince them that they need to do a shackle reverse kit to make it perform better, then sell that too.

Front diff guard going on. Made from 1/4" to bring the total thickness to 3/8's in the high impact areas. I don't know why that pad looks angled in the picture, it doesn't in person.

Parts for brakes, steering and rear axle are starting to show up. Front suspension is mostly complete.
