Re: Ross's Jeep that will take longer than Rob's to build thread...

In no particular order over the last year or whatever. Barrel rolled it and flopped again, DS u-joint and chromos let go at Rocktoberfest. Warranty gave me new Yukon shafts and I bought Super joints. And lastly, I bought a cheap truck and parted it out. I'm left with a 01 6.0 LQ4/5spd NV4500/t-case full pullout

Both, and the u-joint. Joint probably went first and took out the shaft ears. That was the second Spicer 806 so time to upgrade, Superjoints are going in now.

So how is your exhaust routed? It sounds like a tractor.

Awesome rig. Saw it come up Little Jagger and saw video of Mason Jar.

Re: Ross's Jeep that will take longer than Rob's to build thread...

So got the jeep back together. Bought some Yukon Superjoints and had the DS chromos warrantied. Started putting everything together and realized the long side inner was junk too. The new gooseneck and Dodge got some fresh tires and other needed maintenance. Decided to forego NACfest and head down to The Crawl in Harlan, Kentucky instead this year!! Jeep did good, hoodstack gave me some carbon monoxide poisoning, broke the rear driveshaft, did some overall dumb stuff.

Re: Ross's Jeep that will take longer than Rob's to build thread...

Now onto fixing stuff and adding some stuff to it. Rebuilt the rear shaft with a new H-block and u-joints. The front driveshaft centering ball was junk too, so I rebuilt both front shafts with new stuff and cut/welded some bigger slip yoke setups on too. Door skins came off to straighten and added some saddle mounts for all the spare shafts now.

Well damn, I scratched the paint again. And I haven't built new exhaust yet and the hoodstack still is terrible. Dash is all apart right now because the HVAC is messed up too.
