    Looking really good !! If I were you I would replace the shaft and wheel it !! Worry about the tons at a later date ... I'm damn near finished mine and after a year and a half not driving and it now being on the road there is no way I would let it stretch out longer. 3 year not wHeelin I would go nuckin futz !!





    I still have to make a front driveshaft put in a front gear set and run limit straps but I know what you mean by not being able to resist 2 wheel driving it lol I've been running in like that for a week now working out kinks

    I honestly have no idea how I broke it. I had the hammer down but I wasn't bound up in rocks or anything, just some dirt...
    I'm thinking I might throw a new set of shafts in it, finish up the rear and have some fun this summer. I'm tired of hating the poor thing lol

    Looks awesome ryan! what size rubbers you got on there? oh, and its been almost 5 years I believe! time flies haha

    Here's a few pics from when I machined the custom rear companion flange. I ended up turning an old dana 30 1310 yoke down to around 1.5" diameter leaving a small lip for the flange to rest on. I had to use a pinion from my old dana 30 to grip onto with the lath as I didn't want to risk damaging the part that the seal runs against. I then torched a 5.75" x 3/4" circle, turned the inside to 0.010" smaller than the yoke, sweat it onto the yoke. Welded the driveshaft side using a high nickle content rod to stick to the cast steel. Ran the rough flange in the lathe, turned it down to 5.5" diameter and about 5/8" thick after removing the slight off center. made a 1/8" lip to center the CV on the flange, tacked the CV to the flange. Used a transfer punch to center my holes, drilled and tapped for 12mm x 1.75 bolts. The tapping didn't go so smooth... Installed the flange and she seems to be nice and true!

    Just an FYI, the 100mm (3.94") square bolt pattern is standard on the JK's (I guess that's what the driveshaft came out of, I thought it was from a TJ)
    It took me months to figure that out which really didn't help me at all because there's no 100mm companion flanges with 26 splines for the dana 30/44/300's. At that point in time I could either change teh CV to a CV style yoke and buy a 1350 yoke for the 300 or use what I had on the driveshaft and make a custom flange. It may have taken me upwards of 7 hours to make but saved a bit I guess...

    So i picked up Chromo's a while ago and replaced the axle shafts in the front. I ditched the original C clips and found some full circle clips which apparently help keep the cap on under load a lot more. Got my drive shaft lengthened and balanced and threw her in. The custom flange I made surprisingly works good with no noticeable vibrations.

    I took her out at an old quarry on my friends farm and beat the snot out of it. Everything seemed to hold up great. I noticed a small leak on my steering box. The things brand new so I'm not sure what that would be. I hope I purged it right the first time I ran the thing! For now I guess I'll just leave it topped up ha.

    That being said, I think I can say it's done? As "done" as a jeep gets anyways...

    On a side note, a few weeks ago I was hammering on a shaft from a riding lawn mower trying to get it out of the rim because it was seized. A little piece broke off about the size of a small pea and hit my leg which made it bleed like a mother. I tended to my wound and finished getting the shaft out. About an hour later after supper My leg started going numb and feeling really weird. I took a magnet and it stuck to my leg!

    So my wife and I spent a good part of our friday night at emerg getting xrays and having surgery to remove it. After about 10 minute of the doctor hacking at my leg he got me to sit up and 'point to where I thought the metal was'. Easy enough until I looked and saw his needle nose pliars buried in my leg and a scalpel cutting away! another 10 or so minutes and the doc finally found it. Stitched me up and gave me a tetanus shot and sent me on my way.

    Man, tetanus shots hurt for days!

    Lesson learned: DON'T BE HAMMERING ON HARDENED STEEL

    Nothing really new, I threw in a 2" x 8" ram for the steering. It will push over a wall with just my finger but is slow to respond. I probably could have gone with a 1.5" bore cylinder and still had enough steering power. The stock pump just doesn't have enough volume to cycle the ram fast enough.

    Got to play a bit today.
    I find it harder and harder to find time for this thing!

    Turned out looking pretty good!

    Now that it's back on all 4's do you plan on doing your next build this winter?!
