    Front End is on it's own weight!!!!
    New Front Truss. Need some cleaning, grinding, but has a 3/8" skeleton, 1/4" and 1/8" skin. Now I just need to do few full hydro steering mount and skid. Old truss did not allow me to tuck the frame up to my chopped frame as close as I wanted.



    Will hi-line the hood and do aluminum tube fenders (With the new TIG!!!) for weight savings

    16" x 2.0" Sway-A-Ways

    Chopped the rear tonight. I'll pick up some 1" plate tomorrow, mark it out and mill it over the next week then burn it in, turn the ring gear and relash everthing. To those doing this at home with no big mill or tooling..... SKIL SAW and a 3/32 Abrasive Disc and a 5" angle grinder. Made finished cutting in less time them it took the sawzall to move in 1/2"!!!!!!



    Tomorrow I'm pulling the body off to to the rear links and get the doublers in and a second crossmember for them.

    May 22nd is my deadline to have it roadworthy. My 4yr ask if we can for ice cream on his 5th birthday in the Jeep. How can you say no to that and the wife thought it was so cute he came up with it on his own she know I need to make that deadline.

    Oh and I told the wife that this would cost me no money over the xj.

    So far I am 500.00 in the hole for the jeep, up 230.00 in parting it out, down 193.00 for my body mounts and through selling my 44's for cash and iroks, selling the 40" iroks and purchasing the 42" tsls and more grooving knives, I'm ahead by a few bucks!!!

    I still have yj parts and a HEAVY xj chassis to scrap.

    BO YA to the girl who hates my projects as they cost $.

    Sweet progress.

    Why are you using 1" plate for the shave? Seems kind of thick.

    Because instead of machining the ring gear I'm going to mill out a section for a relief. Either that or I'm going to use 3 seperate 1/2" plates and make a hump in the middle. I took so much out at a flat angle compared to the pinion that I need to reliefeven for the carrier. If I hadn't of used the skil saw set at a 90deg cut to the cover mounting point I wouldn need to, but I will now have a sloping angle toward the ground when the pinion angle is set compared a parallel angle to the ground like most people do when they shave their big ass rear ends.

    Going the 3 seperate 1/2" plates, machining the gear and the plate. I got it chopped, so why not do the full advantage.

    From the looks of things, this machine is going to be excellent. Way to throw it to all the YJ haters out there...

    Thanks. I've dragging my feet lately and hating myself for it. I need to keep moving and maybe switch focus to another part of the build like the tub or plumbing instead of supspension to rekindle the fire.

    Tearing into my house isn't helping. Knocking down all the lath and plaster, replacing knob and tube and taking out a wall with 3 kids (one of which is 4weeks old) is very time consuming!!!

    Believe me, I know how hard it can be getting back into that garage sometimes. My 6 month project is now into 3 years... maybe someday you will see your axles and tires back in action haha. Keep it up, lot's of people getting inspiration and loving this build; myself included!

    Thanks. I've been loving your build too!!! Still miss those SX's!!!

    Chopped a little more floor tonight for the tcases instead of search for a damn ballistic joint that I spent 2hrs searching for last night for one of my rear upper links. Fiqure it will turn up under the rubble when I tear down the frame for final weld, grind and paint.

    Thanks. Hopefully in the next week I have the body and trans tunnel together enough to pull it back off the frame. Then it's onto pulling the motor and welding it all up, clean, grind, paint then motor in, body on and to the hard stuff. My May deadline is looking grim unless 24hr days turn into 34hr days.

    Some quick random pics of a little progress.
    Air shock mounts at axle

    Floor chop for cases, dshafts, links, etc.


    Pulled the body off for final welding and cleanup.

    Completely stripped and onto gusset and grinding.

    A few more hours on the frame and then it's on to working on the body.
