Figured it might be time to make a thread for this Turd.
I’m Devin, been around for a while, dont come to nearly enough events or meetings partly because this jeep has been apart for over a year now, and was broken probably just as much when I did drive it regularly.
Sterling 10.5 4 link coils in the back
Dana 60 radius arms and air shocks in the front
Around 122 inch wheel base.
I’ll get caught up with the build when I have the chance to really sit down and organize some pictures. But here’s a few before and during pictures.
Started with the rear first 4 link single tri, went with coils for now and well see how they do. May change to air shocks in the rear some day depending on the wheeling results. If we ever get there. [emoji58]
Overall I think it was around 18 inchs of stretch. I already had a fuel cell before I started all this, RCI 15 gal behind the rear seat.
Well first peice that I bent myself went on the jeep. Not very complex obviously. This cross member will hold up my grill/rad. May look a little crooked but as you can see i dont have the firewall to grill adjustment rods in its actually my grill that is crooked.
Picked up a harbor freight tube notcher, it’s nothing crazy about what youd expect for 40 bucks. All notches need to be cleaned up after with the grinder but it sure beats doing the whole notch with the grinder.
I wanted to keep a steering box so I could drive it on the street, full hydro on road kinda sketches me out. The axle is so far forward that it needed a box with a forward facing pitman arm, was going to do an astro box but the mounting profile didnt end up where I wanted it. JK boxes are pretty easy to come by, and easy to drill out for hydro assist.
