Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

spent a large chunk of the morning cleaning up the garage as it was a mess and it was a hard time walking around without steping on stuff, also decided to install the traction bar, but there was 2 little issues, ifrst was when it was origanally welded up the 2 eye holes shifted making it impossib;e to reinstall, and 2nd when i installed the shackle relocation brackets that tilted the axle up, so i cut the top bar off and repositioned it, now tractionbar is in for good fuel system just might wait as im knocking out alot of the little things

Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

UPDATES!

for starters my turning radius sucked, the tj pitman arm i had simply didnt have enough throw, so i got a WJ arm from Jeff at Crown, the issue with wj arms is the master splines are clocked diffrently then a xj/tj arm, so i took a file to it and now have unlimited clocking and full throw steering



i also had issues with my limiting strap setup, i was gonna run ep eye to eye on the shocks, i got 29" straps, my shocks are 29.75 ext, i didnt know that straps stretch, so i redid the upper shock mount and dropped the mounting point for the shock 1.5"





strap is just starting to snug up as the coil is almost unseating(dont be hatin on meh "mad ghetto" ramps



the the good bit, spent the past few days fabbing up a rear bumper and crossmember. The crossmember is 3x3x3/16 angel welded to the frame and shackle boxes, im also gonna add 2 pieces of tube from the inner frame rail to the back of the crossmember for more support



the bumper is 2x5x2/16 box cut and bent, legs and quarter guards are 2x2x3/16 and is conected to the crossmember with 12 bolts, and has a flush mounter reciever that is part of the middle bumper mount
