Well I’m back, and here to stay some of you may remember me as *glow boy* and I’m sure there are a lot of new faces to meet and get to know here and on the trail so some things have changed since I’ve been gone, no more Toyotas I am starting my new build on a 89 4.2L Yj that unlike in the past,( I will take Mike, aka *Stetsons* advice and go with a simple build plan), so here goes first what the jeep has that I will be keeping a very strong running 4.2L 6, sprung over waggy d44 front with cable locker rear ford 8.8 with locker and solid rust free frame and tub. Now for what I will be doing with this build new propane setup(got propane) TF-727 auto tran to dana 300 case twined (usingNorth west fabworks cable shifters), front and rear bumpers, tube fenders, sliders, corner body amour, suspension seats (smittybuilt), new custom made flat leaf springs front and rear (to keep this rig low), reid racing 4 stud flat top knuckles, Ballistic fab high steer kit, custom cadge work, 36” irocks, beedlock wheels and so on. I am hopping to be wheeling this rig early in the new year. So far I have stripped the jeep, and now wait for parts to show up and dream about the trails will post picks soon as I get some time.
Later Chad.[cheers]

No I was going down through the forums; read his 'I'm back' thread in the new members section, saw the "here's my build" and thought it might have pics. (not an unreasonable assumption, given the thread title)

i've been looking for something like that (using regular bolts, no u bolts) for my jeep because of the whacky custom ubolts I used on my scout d44....long story short.. I should have spent more time with the grinder, or found a leaf spring perch like that to begin with.
