Atlas II 3.0:1

Axles:

Body
2000 TJ Sahara tub with hood and grill only (two seater)

Traditional type frame with 2x4 rect tubing 50ksi (1/8 wall in front of firewall and 3/16 under tub). Body will be independent of cage and frame. All link geometry on new frame predesigned to fit existing axles out of my cj. Flat belly at bump is 15", ride height belly is 22". Wheelbase is 116". Top of cage will be around 74" at ride height depending on head room could change little either way. 1.75 Dom cage and all links 2" 1/4wall with 1.25" heims.

This Tj is built simple and to ride. Not fancy, and no bling bling here. Chrome and fancy curves dont get you up a hill any quicker.

Which atlas did you go with in "blak out"? and what are your axle gears? Wondering if i made right choice on my atlas.

5:1 Atlas and 4.56 gears. I figured if it ended up being too low, it would be easier to change gears than the transfer case. The Powerglide has the standard 1.76 ratio.
