Havnt gotten a whole lot done till this weekend my jeep project has kept me pretty busy. But managed to get a little progress this weekend. Pushed the front axle forward 3" and plated the frame. I also wanted it lower so I used early bronco buckets and notched the frame so I could slide them forward.







got my 17" beadlocks just waiting for goodyear to make some tires.




A few of me and some friends just to show you what else Ive been up too.

Well since I moved my axle forward about 4 inches from the original location my stock steering box wasnt going to cut it. It would end up in the radiator unless I dropped it down. So I decided to use a fj60 box with a trail queer ifs pitman arm reamed out to accept 1 ton chevy tie rod ends. I had to do quite a bit of surgery to the frame rail to get this done. Special thanks to mr. plasma cutter.

Well since I moved my steering box on the outside of the frame my trackbar just needed to get alot longer. So I drew up some templates out of card board and built a trackbar bracket that moved the mounting location over in front of the passenger coil spring.



Some heims from ruff stuff for the track bar.



Heres a toyota pitman arm and tapered reamer for 1 ton chevy tierod ends.







And I have to give Swag offroad a plug for this radius tool for a plasma cutter sweet tool. And yes I know my welding skills are lacking but Im sure nothing will come off.

I got it sitting on its own weight brackets burned in I know the axle bracket is a little ugly but it isnt going to break. My next project is to get the tranny rebuilt in the next couple of weeks and transfercases installed again. Yes I know none of the nuts are tight or have cotter pins.

Yeah saw that mounted them in the dark in my yard writing on the side is pretty small. I'll fix it later .
