    Thanks everyone....

    The plan this winter is to Regear the D30/35. then I will be going up 3" installing the SYE then putting on the rubber.

    And before everyone jumps on me with the d35 and 35's don't mix.... I've heard of many that already do and if and when it breaks... it time for an upgrade. Hopefully It will wait till next winter.

    i have found the d30 to be a realy reliable axle and the d35 not up to the task at all been realy lucky with the d30 8.8 combo.
    if i were to spend a bunch of money i would truss the d30 add alloy axles and a warn hub conversion

    Thanks Andy, I'm not certain on the type of axle I'm going to replace the D35 with but with that change will come a SOA conversion. So at that time I want it to be the last "big" change in the suspension. That will all depend on how I manage with this set-up as I really need to get to the body modifications next.

    I agree about the alloys for the D30 but how much luck have you had trussing it? I have heard a few times that it isn't strong enough to support it.

    As for 35's on the D35, I guess it all depends on how you drive it. I would def carry spare shafts if you don't already because you WILL need them.

    Absolutely, I already carry spare shafts for both the D30 and D35.

    thanks again. I'll keep posting pics as things change.

    Cad work...

    I have the cad drawings done for the Lift schakles. they will give me 1 1/2 more inches of lift. They are already cut but I don't have the pictures of them to post yet. I will when I have them.

    the pictures portray what the finished product will resemble, the Layout of the plate for the CNC then the toolpath the CNC will take for while cutting them.

    Here are pictures of the plate and Semi Finished Shackles. I like the checker plate. It adds some bling to the shackles.

    nice work...but who ever said jeeps need bling!?

    hope you got enough mat'l for a 9th...that one 3rd from the right (in the last pic) took a shot from the center drill, looks just bad enough to weaken it near the eye

    im sure a fine designer like you caught that anyway

    yup... the material had two holes in it from its previous task. that hole has been welded up and repaired. I did not want repair it first before machining as it would have made it harder on the cutter.

    thanks for noticing.

    as for bling.... i agree there is no need for it... but to add a little once in a while makes it just custom enough for my liking.
