    Front axle show up a week back



    Then it was time for the 3 link panhard

    Or so I thought, Where the ram is mounted nicely tucked in there is just no room for a TB to sneak through.

    So Tri 4 link up and coming?





    WB sitting at about 108 right now




    Frame notches for the Ram today possibly

    Hunts is on for a rad as the upper link mounts are not going to be kind to the tank when they self clearance I don't imagine

    Awesome. If your not going fancy custom look into 80's grand waggy's, cherokee, j truck. Shorter, wider and the inlet/outlets are in relatively the same place. May have to yank the a/c tho. I'll be giving it a shot very shortly.

    Thanks man

    I've got a couple call out on universal ones the size needed.

    As for the AC, well I may have got one of the lucky Sahara's with no AC no Cruise and no ABS

    Its the tank on the bottom hanging down that's gotta go, as I'm sure you've noticed haha, and maybe some of the grill

    Cross flow vs down flow. Make any difference does anyone know?

    Front Frame is cut and the pieces are ready to weld in, and get on to the Strut hoops.

    It not very far from holding it weight, and hasn't been for 3 weeks or so, haha

    Get some fenders welded up and do a bunch of plumbing and I'm really looking forward to some seat time for the payoff




    ---------- Post added at 09:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:59 PM ----------

    Oh yeah

    Axle's all welded up except strut mounts and the links are done



    Ran into a good one with the one tube adapter when it decided to weld itself to the JJ as it being hand tightened in. 2nd thread of the JJ met the seventh thread of the Adapter and it all stopped. Broke the vice trying to get it apart. Then did some grinding, and heating, and beating, and more heating, and beating. Then the next day did more grinding, heating, swearing, beating, grinding, and got this out...





    No fun all that

    So after all that heat and abuse I think I better build a new arm, no big deal but a bit of a PITA


    You DOM experts, Did I harm it buy having the thing cherry a few times?

    I had one other arm that tightened up part way in so I stopped and found a guy with a tap for it.


    16 joints welded plus all the steering ones I've done and 2 seem to have got to hot on the weld.

    Upper, lower, front, rear? Is it pushing the johnny into the arm or trying to pull it out. Either way........................i'd run it. lol. Had to cut one of old seized in johnnies out too. It was a whore. But not as bad as cutting the bungs out of the no dice track bar to reuse in the new one. Bigger whore. lol. Keep at it buddy. Exciting sh!t
