Didn't make near the progress I wanted to this week and I'm headed up north this weekend for deer camp... Hopefully ordering more parts on my way up and getting them next week. Biggest thing I need is 3 more heims, most everything else I'll be able to either build or source locally. Only real progress I made was getting my coil buckets on

Sorry I never swung by, I've been increasingly busy with life, so no time for Jeeps unfortunately. If I don't go up to Baldwin chasing salmon, I may have some free time this weekend. Gonna be around?

Well my truck is back on the road... Had to replace a unit bearing and CV shaft. Hopefully my heims will be in tomorrow and I can get the progress rolling on my Jeep... I THINK the only other thing I need is a passenger side brake caliper and a set of brake pads then I'll be good other than welding on brackets. With my luck who knows what else I'll run into though

Front axle most of the way in. Still need to weld on my tracbar bracket and shock mounts. Then I need to finish up the brakes, build my front driveshaft, throw new u joints in my axle shafts and pop them in the front, replace a leaking hub seal on my rear axle, install my Detroit in the rear, and box in my rear tracbar bracket all before Thursday...we'll see what happens









Had to use a ratchet strap to pull my factory front drive shaft off of the t-case.



Anybody wanna buy a set of KC 130 Watt SlimLites?

Check that hub out. That's a nice hub.



Steering. Stacked heims putting the knuckle in double shear



Had to add 3.5" to an XJ front driveshaft.



Drove it out of the garage under it's own power. Just have to box in some brackets and make front shock mounts before I roll north. Also have to give my rear axle some attention too because of the leaky hub...Also want to install my locker if I have time.

Yea barely... Luckily if I hit a rock and bend the tie rod up, it'll help the cause.
what brackets are those that let u run the chevy calipers? and what rotor does it use?
Google lugnut4x4. Buy the "brackets only" kit. They're advertised to only work with JB6 but I'm running JB7 because they mounted just fine. I'm running the exact same set up on the front that I am on the rear, mid 80's Chevy JB7 front calipers and rotors.

I bought the full kit from GreatLakeOffroad and am very happy with it. It was 100% complete and works great.

I've only ran about a mile on em in the front but I love em so far. The guy will prolly contact you and try to convince you to buy his full kit at a "great" price but it's only JB6 and its expensive from him lol
