i should be ok with a 53" tire and 14.30 axle ratio excpecially with the rpm's this thing can reach...  were thinking the only time we'll use low range is tugowar, or running bounty holes on 66x43s

ran out to the shop today, grabbed the phone, so heres last weekends pics

removed the two horizontal bars on the bottom 


the center point on the bottom of the frame was different by a bit, so i came up with this to kinda square up the frame a little

notched it for a chunk of 2x4" 1/4"   all lower links will be meeting up on this.  

i sleeved some 1/2 bolts though the upper and lower plates...  it will get a front and rear wall to it, and clevises will be mounted there

time to start getting it together

came up with this to get it up where i wanted it

i decided to start at the rear

tacking all the suspension parts together

i am waiting on a few tabs, so i temporarily attached the lower links to the bottom of the 2x4" tube.  the new tabs will have the links inline with the tube instead once they are done

cut a few pieces of 2x2 for temporary stilts untill i finish the cantilever parts for the airride

i decided thats how far i wanted the rear axle for departure angle, and clearance for when i run it on 66x43s

got a chance to work on the jeep finally [smile]

got some new tabs for the lower links.  kinda wanted more clearance, and a smoother belly on it

yay sparks [frown] and metal shavings up my sleeves

little better

standing on its own

now it gets moved out of the shop for a couple weeks while we swap the 7.3 and 5 speed into the chevy crew cab we have for a hauler...  by the time we finish that, the rest of the pieces should be in so we can assemble the cantilever suspension on the jeep.
