Colesjeep used to be in my fourwheel drive club so he knows that the club gives out the cowbell each month to a member that does something stupid. In my case, I was supposed to deliver it to another member in Nov, never did, and it has been sitting in my garage since then. Since the club has turned into a bunch of pussies that don't go on runs, had more members enter their jeeps in a car show than went to Hollister to wheel, I got it for not bringing the cowbell back to the meetings. I'm sure I will get it for next month too for welding the dinger to the side of the bell.

Ordered up my parts to four link the front end. I'll still be using a trackbar due to space issue's. Ended up ordering all the brackets instead of making my own. To busy with work to have the time to make my own. Ballistic should ship out the joints and brackets on Mon., then I can start putting it back together. Got all the old brackets cut off and cleaned on one side. Still need to finish the other side. The front axle will get moved forward @ an inch, so the steering cylinder will not have a chance to hit the engine pulley on full compression. More to come.

Coils? Coilovers? Come on, be specific.

I kind of think you'll be done next Sunday, if it goes like the rear.

14" used swayaway coilovers. The suspension will be a similar setup as on my dodge. 4 link with trackbar. I would hope to have it done by next sunday, but I think it will take a little longer to finish. I'm doing it in my garage right now. I'll get everything mocked up and tacked in here. Then trailer it over to the shop where I'll articulate it with the forklift to check everything, then final weld it all in.

Well the brackets finally showed up yesterday. Tacked the brackets on to see where everthing would end up. Still waiting for the ballistic joints and square tube bungs to show up. Might get those next week. Set a piece of tubing and a tire iron in to show where the links will be. I'm going to try and place the trac bar behind the axle. So far in mock up it looks like it will just clear the oil pan, air bumps, and the top of the diff housing.

Worked on it a little tonight. Still waiting for the ballistic joints to come in. They said they should ship out the end of the week. We'll see if that happens. I took off one of the johnny joints off the rear so I could use it on the front mounts to get the spacing between the brackets right. Fitted some of the brackets, and will probably start welding them in on thurs. Kind of pissed that the joints haven't shown up yet.

That is a pisser...

I have Curries on the rear and Ballistic on the front. When I bought my Ballistic Joints, they were quite a bit less than Curries. I see Curries are about $6 less now.

I have no idea how they compare in strength or preformance or anything else, I haven't had trouble with either.

I called poly performance after I found out that the joints would take awhile to get. They told me that like currie, they were out of stock on the johnny joints. So I am kind of stuck waiting for ballistic right now.

Made a little progress in the last couple of days. Got most of the brackets welded on. Still need to reinforce some of them. Joints should be here on tues. Finally.

I did push it forward some more. It was at 103"s before. I think it will be 105"s when done. I pushed it forward so the steering ram's not below the crank pulley like it was before.

What are you using for your link material? I saw that you used square 2x.25 for the rear. Same for the front?

What's the plan for the axle end panhard mount? Something custom?

Axle end panhard mount is welded to the axle mount link brackets. It will also get welded to the diff housing and get tied into a bracket that I'll build that get bolts to the diff also. If that makes any sense.

Little more done last night. More bracing on the coilover mounts. Plated the front side of the axle tube link mounts.

Well I drove it to work this morning. Did good, more body roll than before, but that was to be expected. Had to change the upper link mounts on the frame side. When I lifted it up, the pinion angle would drop way down and bind the yokes. Only going to run one upper link because the links where binding up when flexed with all four hooked up. Flexed it out this morning. Driver's side coilover hit the trackbar mount. I'll have to trim it, or move the mount under the frame.
