Well I got all 4 tires mounted with inner locks installed ready to use, set rear axle in place and got rear lower links made and set, took all measurements for upper links with the hope to make them in the next day or so then I can start mocking up air shocks..
Well after being away form home for a week of work.. good to spend a little time in the garage
front links in
more of rear
front ride height
rear at ride height looking from concrete up
front at ride height looking from concrete up
Front of axle.
So I have run into a few issues.. since I built a passenger side drop axle and then put in a high 9 center I cant clear the starter very well.. so I had to put the upper links where they are due to me not being able to move the passenger side in any more which now means I dont have 40 degree seperation so I now need to add a trac bar and since I am going that route I think I will now just make normal steering with assist instead of full hydro.. and the other issue is due to starter location I can run a straight driveshaft so I will be making a two piece shaft for the front..
all in all I am very happy and hope to start on the front shock mounts tomorrow and maybe get all the shocks in tomorrow
the a few measurements and cuts and here is how the fuel cell will sit..I am making a skid plate and mounts for it to be nice and secure and also making a top so no fuel smells get into cab area, then I will make storage tie downs for the top and I may just mount some ammo cans
well only thing left to do is add trac bar and the front is finally done
the rear fuel cell is all wired, and all lines connected so I put 5 gallons in fuel cell and hooked up battery to test it and BAM nothing.. no power to anythign in jeep so now I need to check all the fuses etc.
