    From my understanding, u typically install shock towers if u plan on stretching the rear. They actually fit in tightly in behind the fender opening so not sure how that would work if there was no stretch?

    Short update.. I have been struggling to find free time to get this rig all finished. I tore it all down back to the bare frame and final welded everything, cleaned it up and shot it with primer / paint.
    When i had it all together, i noticed that the Tie Rod was a limiting factor on the upwards travel on the Passenger. So i decided to notch the frame a bit to give it that extra 1-2" or so. At first i didn't know what to use to plate the opening but then noticed that the cutout on the frame in the rear where i frenched the shock towers in was perfect to fill the opening and bam.. Worked like a charm:





    Then i tore the 14 bolt apart one last time. I removed the other old caliper bracket, ground down the OE drum brake mount a bit for clearance and also cut off one more time the rear shock mounts and tilted them up as much as possible so as leave me as much downward travel as possible. When i had it on a hoist, i noticed that the rear was not drooping down as much as the front was so this will help a bit more. Installed the new CC caliper brackets to the front of the axle, torqued the spindles (Finally bit the bullet and bought a spindle nut socket) and buttoned it all up. Shot it with primer and black paint. Still have to shoot the GLO diff cover, seal it up, install the pinion guard, fill it up with oil and run the brake lines.




    This evening i started in on the front 60. Degreased it, threw primer on it and will let it dry for the night... Depending on weather, i might be able to get at it a bit tomorrow night...








    The rest of the TJ is in here somewhere....

    Shits coming along but fakk it's slow....


    Started cleaning up the tub.

    - Cut off a bit of the C channel near the rear to accomodate Cage Tie-Ins.
    - Repaired the big gash of a hole i cut into the floor in a fit of rage and a bunch of pints trying to fit an ATLAS (Ended up realizing all i had to do was clock the ATLAS..... ). First time welding sheetmetal. Did not bad. Was able to re-use almost all the pieces that i had originally cut out.

    Then decided to plate the frame notch. Wasn't going to but after thinking about it a bit more. With the torque from the antirock and possibly a winch, it's probably a wise move to do it now..

    Small update. Finally got my TC support in place. I had a fakk of a time with clearance and alignment but i finally got it to work. Had some parts powdercoated as well.

    I hope to get the tub back on this weekend. I need to first though:

    - Get the Shifters setup on the ATLAS
    - Get my fuel / vac and brake lines run to the back
    - Setup the wiring harness

    If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the powder coating done and how much did it set you back? I'm seriously considering doing all of my bits this winter.

    It was pricey. Don't get me wrong, it's fakking nice and hard but in the end, it was $1300.00.

    I had done:
    - Rear Quarters with flares
    - Front fenders
    - Front inner fenders
    - Front bumper
    - Rear bumper
    - Side Raiils
    - Rear tailgate
    - Rear tailgate kick plate
    - A few other brackets.

    I had it all done at Ottawa Powdercoating.

    that is not expensive that's about average for quality PC work.

    I guess i meant, pricey in the sense that i could have just shot it all with tremclad and called it a day and spent that money on some nice Corbeau seats

    So shit's coming along..

    Got most of my EVAP stuff figured out. With the HEMI it needs to be a 2005 spec TJ setup for it to work. I have a 2004... Wouldn't you know it, fair amount of differences. Add to that a stretch tank and well.... While some of the parts were already sourced when i acquired the HEMI TJ project, some were not. In the end, i got it all setup, less the Filter. That i still have to fit into the back of the rear PS fender. From what i have read, i can remove the charcoal canister without throwing any codes. This will make it small enough i hope to fit into the stretched corner with a bit of trimming.



    Maxed out the droop on the rear and was able to re-use a flex line i already had. Just needed to make a few new brackets and bend a new brake line to the front.




    Then started setting up all the wiring. So far so good for the most part. I have one connector that won't work on the Alternator and another sensor that i ended up breaking while lifting the engine onto the mounts. I'll get those figured out.





    Then started in on the ATLAS cables... What a fakkin useless instructions guide they provide.. Absolutely brutal and could not find much on the net either. To add to that, either I lost or they did not include a set of bolts that were required so i had to source those as well...







    Then did some last minute touch ups and primer on the cuts i had made to the tub and the loaded it onto the frame for what i am hoping will be the last time!






    Then i started bolting on all the body armour:

    I spliced in the rear ORO tail lights and attempted to reconnect the fuel filler to the tank. Because i moved it from the side to the rear, the spout and lines just don't line up. I have attempted to source a fuel line with a 90 in it (Ironically enough i got it out of a scrap pile at Dominion Radiator) but am not sure if it's going to work. The bend is pretty tight... I am hoping that at some point i am going to find another solution to this before it's ready to roll. Also setup the shifter box inside the tub and then loosely connected the Hydro assist to look for clearance.






    On the immediate shit list right now:

    - Run the rear hard lines for the calipers (For some reason i have two different size banjo bolts for the same calipers.. Gotta figure that out first....)
    - Reconfigure the EVAP and get it installed in the rear PS quarter panel.
    - Reconnect all the rest of the brake lines and tie into the master.
    - Setup the steering shaft. When test fitting, it was extremely close to the manifold. cut the bracket off the frame so that i can reposition it and am hopeful that this will work and resolve the clearance
    - Setup Hydro assist. I still need to be a HEMI specific reservoir before i can complete this.
    - Cut in some front blinkers into the grill and then install it all.
    - Setup radiator
    - Setup tranny cooler
    - Setup the PC and the rest of the wiring
    - Setup the Auto tranny shifter
    - Swap out the pedals from a standard to an auto
    - Swap out the cable actuated to electronic gas pedal
    - Install the rear tailgate
    - Cut off the current Bpillar cage plates and use different ones that will accomodate cage tie in's.
    - Install the A and B pillar cage tie-ins
    - Replace the engine oil pan
    - Cut up the hood to accomodate the louvers, hood hinges/pins and then install it.

    And then all the rest of the little things that i know I still have to do....

    It's going to be a long summer.......
    - Find a new fuel line and get that bent up and installed along the top of the frame rail.

    Wow! Looks awesome! The chev's came with 2 differnt size banjos but it shouldn't affect anything to do with lines. Ports will still line up. I highly recommend tying in the rear truss to the pinion or at least box it in some to the axle tubes. 2 buddy's, with stock 4L's, have cracked theirs and they're double tube'd. Can only imagine what the Hemi could do. Also looks like you have room to box in the rear frame uppers some. Just a tab to the frame. Just food for thought. Again, looking awesome!!!

    I did add an additional gusset on the frame uppers to help with support.

    For the truss, i plan on re-doing it this winter with:

    http://www.artecindustries.com/14-bo...uss_p_203.html

    And

    http://www.artecindustries.com/14-bo...uss_p_444.html


    And then getting it shaved.



    I'll wheel it (Hopefully!!) this late summer / fall and go from there. I also don't hammer quite to the extent you do though So hopefully i will be safe
