    It looks like I need to do a complete rebuild on the long arms as well as put a new trans mount in and that should shut it up for a bit

    Yup, I already have the front bushings and retro fit kit here (mine are the old style arms that they don't sell the bushings for anymore).
    Just have to order up the joint re-build kits for the rear parts of the arms, and the trans mount. Will wait untill end of season to do this, (or at least till after the jamboree.)

    Well had a good week of wheeling for the Jamboree last week.
    After having my a/c compressor sieze on the trail the week before (did not work to start with) I swapped the compressor for just a straight idler pulley.

    Did not get many pics, this is the only one I was able to grab when I caught the wife playing around with the heep.


    Also, the staff from Jeep Jamboree USA thought it was me that put zip ties on their drive shaft, so this is how the returned the favor.

    Well after the Ardbeg trail clean up, I ended up ripping the hitch and part of the unibody out of the back of the heep.




    So put it up on the hoist and started by pulling the hitch and tank.



    Cut out all the bad and prepping for new boxed in section.



    And since it is down for repairs for the time being, I will finish up some wiring, and maybe some other "little" mods.

    Ya I totally understand that! I had a steering arm on a Rockwell axle let go at work and thanked god it didn't let do on the highway... as it had just come off the highway!

    Are you planning on reinforcing the doorways or anything? I would imagine that there might be some cab flex issues...

    Looks like she flexs good in post #87!

    Nope, not worried. The doors on the XJ do not do much in the way of stopping the body flex. I have had it right twisted and could always open the door.
    Now the tailgate, that a different story. When it's flexed, the tail gate does not like to open nice (if it even will).
    Plus now with the extra support in the rear, and the RE skid plate I am not worried at all.

    Thanks.
    As for the repair, we cut out all the rot, cleaned up the area. Then slid square tube into the unibody and welded ot together and "built" a rear frame section, then welded the hitch into place.

    It's not going anywere now.

    No shit....I did the same thing to the back of my XJ. Tied my bumper into it also and I'd have to say the back half is stronger than its ever been. Are we on to something here?? lol
