Now that the inside of the shop is boarded, new lights,painted and fully insulated I actually pulled jeep outside since it went in, frame left once for a cleaning :D

Blew the dust off it and quickly got in back inside where it's warm and less scary :fire

Carried it over to the middle of the shop

Made up 4 links, had a plan to keep all 7 links the same length but ran into a problem

First issue was stock crossmember and my rear winch mount :confused0006:

This is all at full stuff

So out came the saws all :eek:

So the link on the right is if I keep all links the same
Left link is if I make this length center of diff then need to shorten bottom links 4.5"

http://i978.photobucket.com/albums/ae263/jjtully91/023CF730-CB85-4869-BEDC-AB0BE87D3C25_zpsj6duhtgw.jpg (http://s978.photobucket.com/user/jjtully91/media/023CF730-CB85-4869-BEDC-AB0BE87D3C25_zpsj6duhtgw.jpg.html)

These are the mounts that came with kit I'll get something else built for top

http://i978.photobucket.com/albums/ae263/jjtully91/2B61CAAE-773E-4BCB-A013-CE1FE26A34F7_zpsuprzmiyw.jpg (http://s978.photobucket.com/user/jjtully91/media/2B61CAAE-773E-4BCB-A013-CE1FE26A34F7_zpsuprzmiyw.jpg.html)

If I shorten lowers it does put the front mount on a flatter piece of frame and top links center of diff

http://i978.photobucket.com/albums/ae263/jjtully91/6AB5598B-CA9B-49F4-97BF-B7DA3FD2DF2D_zpswlewjycu.jpg (http://s978.photobucket.com/user/jjtully91/media/6AB5598B-CA9B-49F4-97BF-B7DA3FD2DF2D_zpswlewjycu.jpg.html)

This is if I leave lowers long, puts mount right on a bend

Guessing my best bet is to shorten lowers :dontknow: :(

Going to figure that out later, have a rear winch where fuel tank was, how"d you get the front so far without messing up steering?

12-30-2015, 11:47 AM
some things that I have learned over the years. The lower link mounts at the diff you will want to have them so they are position below the axle tube center line. Other wise you will end up with the axle wanting to rotate under the lower link on accel and over the link on decel. Also in theory you want your upper links to be shorter than the lower links, but you run link lengths and adjust separation heights to acheive the squat that is right for the truck.

The answer to the steering is a astro van box
Pitman arm faces forward and its reverse rotation
And will bolt into stock location

Maybe I'm just being picky but I can't get the mounts to sit equal. Every measurement is the same and square but the drivers tab is further forward :dontknow:

Then I started on front shocks, got uppers tacked on

Still looks the same just with a taller piece of tubing :D
Who knew the square tube I was using is the perfect size in the mounts [h]

Thinking I'm going to add to my truss go right to other side

Nothing over here, ignore the center line mark, that was the axle center at bump :run away

http://i978.photobucket.com/albums/ae263/jjtully91/E8189C29-4C1E-4DC5-A982-5330DB8BE79C_zps25y4cbot.jpg (http://s978.photobucket.com/user/jjtully91/media/E8189C29-4C1E-4DC5-A982-5330DB8BE79C_zps25y4cbot.jpg.html)

Pass side on the other hand, still need track bar mount too

Front is pretty much ride height

And that's it started to think about lower mounts but got hungry [sorrysign]

Looks good jj
If you use a straight edge across diff cover flange and measure off that
Make link brackets same distance from that and they will be square to axle center line

It's not even raining, did some weedeating then figured I'd carry on with this thing :eek:

Started to figure out some lower mounts oh yeah

Made up some cardboard templates then cut them with some thin metal to see how it works

http://i978.photobucket.com/albums/ae263/jjtully91/E1D95376-42CC-40DC-B942-6A640D979A05_zpsp6dkbri0.jpg (http://s978.photobucket.com/user/jjtully91/media/E1D95376-42CC-40DC-B942-6A640D979A05_zpsp6dkbri0.jpg.html)

Also cut end off truss and moved to end of diff(same as pass) so mounts are the same and will carry truss right across diff, mounts need more adjustment and will probably have trackbar on pass mount too

Maybe more to come some day #yeah
