  1. Fabrication and body armor
    Been looking at various cages and how they perform in rolls taking account for the weight. I really like the cage from trentfab my old design is very loosely based upon it. But, they have a support across the center of the windshield. Is there any way I could possibly make this support removable...

    I am building a rig from the ground up and need some fj62 axle advise. I have a set of 87 fj62 axles. I after much kicking and screaming I finally realized I needed to changed my transfer to a atlas2 with a center output. I still Like the fj-62 parts availability and the strong 4.11 3rd of the...

    For a while now (like 8 years) I have been playing around with the idea of a transfer case with a 1/1 low and a .5/1 high. The goal being that you could run 2 transmissions (in this case it is 2 t-18 transmissions) and then run a specialty transfer case. The idea being that you would not only...
  4. Jeep Tech
    I plan on copying a Rubicon express long arm tri link design in a cj moving the front axle forward 3 inches and the rear 7 inches back(roughly at this point). I plan on using the same long arm tri link setup in the front as in the rear using a dropping track bar design. The track bar drops...
  5. The Pub
    So, on the legal side of my build I am trying to get a answer to this question. I am taking a 69 cj down to the stock frame installing a roll cage/body made of plastic (to avoid rusting) that has (rough) dimensions close to that of the stock cj-5. I plan on retaining the frame, grill...
  6. Jeep Tech
    So despite me being a yes boy and not having the balls to stand up and take some time off from driving for this project pj(69 cj-5)I keep moving forward in the design leaving fewer and fewer questions. I keep buying stuff for it and slowly increasing the parts pile in lieu of actually being...

    I am going to use some air ride (semi truck) seats in this jeep. But I don't want to use the "padded foam seats" because I want the ability to rinse the interior down with a pressure washer. I am looking for a 2 piece plastic seat. I want high rise with a small area like a inch or so between...
  8. General Tech
    Right now the my 69 cj5 has a 231/t-14/d18. It is almost completely stock except for the 231. In the shed I have a 69 225 dauntless with 25k on it (that's what the guy that I bought it from on here said anyway). The engine looks fresh through out and after dropping around a grand into an new...

    OK your track bar can only be so long it is fixed. But pulls the axle to one side during droop. The only current way to help with this is to move the upper mount lower. But, what if you made a drop down V and had the track bar upper mount mount here-------------^. Like a mini v mounted to...
  10. Rig Builds and Pics
    Little bit of a back story: Couple years ago the trend caught on of bolting "body armor" on. This 1/8 thick steel would weigh down the jeep but was virtually rust proof. So the idea came into my head of making a jeep tub (unibody) out of 1/8 steel. It would last for 40+ years in Michigan's salt...
