    EatingSpam's build (CT Motorsports)

    Colin has been asking me to post up a small thread on his build that we did before the season. As many build often go, we started with a game plan that wasn't supposed to be too involved so he decided to just go with Dana 44's instead of the usual D60 swaps. We went with Waggy D44s for the axles. Here's a list of some of the parts that we went with.

    Dana 44 Waggy axles
    PSC Hydro assist
    FOA coil over shocks (He wanted to go with 14" travel shocks but we had to limit the droop to 12")
    Poly Performance upper shock mounts front and rear
    We modified a Rock Krawler rear Truss
    The trailing arm mounts on the frame end were salvaged from his BDS kit
    The lower control arm axle mounts are Poly Performance and some that we fabbed up in the shop
    Gen Right fuel tank and skid (stretch)
    Dana 300.NP231 t case doubler

    Stripped

    Looks heavy-duty!

    Cool build.

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    The doubler (7.12:1 combined low) WILL kill the rear ring and pinion. Been there done that (x2). If you're real lucky you will kill the front end at the same time. I did it with bald 35" tires.

    Haveing zero seperation on the frame end of the rear links is going to have some fantastic axle hop. No bueno.

    You did read the part where he said that they re-used the frame end link mounts from the existing BDS lift kit, so they are like every other BDS lift kit on the market.

    Wow, that is very disappointing if that is the case. The instant center will be completely out to lunch. In fact, the IC will literally be at the link mounts. I can't believe their kits are designed that way.

    Ski thanks a lot, it has turned out better then I expected and DAN is the man with a wrench.

    If anyone is looking for work to be done, I would give CTMotorsports a call.

    Great work at FAIR prices.

    I have tired to shop around at different local shops, always end up buying from CT for price and service.

    Thanks guys

    Colin
