The rock krawler rear double triangulated cross member came in today. It’s stout and a lot of the math is already done ha. Was originally designed for ultra 4600 races.

So there’s no going back now. Took the Jeep over at lunch so it could cool down and got started on it after work. Got everything factory deconstructed. Sold 90% of everything that came off of it.Then I went home and loaded all the 1 ton stuff in the back of the truck. It took every inch of the 8ft bed. Definitely time for new shocks in that truck. Going to be cutting all the factory stuff off today and everything prep for all the new stuff.

Been busy the last couple days working after hours.

Got all the factory brackets chopped and cleaned off the second day of this week. Lots of grinding was done.

Day three we starred to position all of the frame side mounts for the links. Lucky for me I have integrated crossmembers and prefab third link mount for the front. Rock krawler double rear triangulation and three link front artec kit. Lots of small adjustments to get everything perfect.

Last night was all about getting the gas tank mounted and positioned. I am running the  Tj tank rear mounted with the cargo a rear turned into a fuel pump access door. Still have to make the door but the tank is in.

Well we got some more done on the Jeep last night. Got all the brackets on the axle side mounted minus the track bar. I am happy with the progress that we have made on this build.

Ok everyone knows I finished it but I’m going to try to fill in where everyone was left off at.

After we got all the suspension in place and started working on the weld on knuckles, track bar and hydro assist. This took some messaging with the grinder but it came out fantastic. Ended up using vks offset from frame side track bar mount and the artec low profile track bar axle mount. It allowed me to easily stretch out the front three inches that was desired.
