I already bent and straightened the factory tie rod a couple times when it was under the other jeep.

Got some work done today, but not as much as I wanted too. Woke up this morning to a backed up septic system and had to deal with that

The adapter ring didn't quite fit right, but after sone grinding and enlarging the holes a hair it finally bolted up. Hopefully I'll get it mounted to the tran later this week.




And the big hole I cut for clearance. Found some rust in that side of the floor pan so I just hacked at it since I'm going to have to replace it.

Got the transfercase installed today. The only issue is now it wont start with the key (started when I jumped the starter). I have not checked the nuetral safety switch yet, but is there anything this swap could have done to cause this?

Yes it could be the nss, i believe it is a normally closed switch (failsafe), so if its gone it aint gonna work, connect the wires and you should be a go.

Got the frame stiffeners cut and fitted today. Now the fun part of preping the frame and drilling all the rosette holes begins.

Messed with the suspension brackets a little today. Cut and trimmed a piece of 2" x 1/4" angle




Then I'll tie it into some 1/4" plate that will sit on top of the ballistic brackets. I'll then weld the round coil base to that.




On the drivers side basically going to build a third leg and then tie them all together with plate like the other side




Also used a spot weld cutter and seperated the rear fenders. Hopefully I'll get them cut out tomorrow.




A friend is moving out of his storage shed and needed a place to keep his welder so I quickly volunteered my house!

this might be a stupid question but, why did you go with the 7/8 thick one rather then a 3/8 thick? wouldnt spline engagement be a huge factor?

Got the front axle pulled and fired up the welder today. Only got the driver side finished. At the FD tomorrow, so hopefully I will get done mowing early Thurs. and can finish the pass side. Looked at the leaking freeze plugs and they are worse than I thought. Since the axle it out I'm going to go ahead and replace them all. Have a deal pending on my SBC and TH350. Suppose to be picked up on Sunday and should give me enough cash to get this rolling under its own power again.




Made a third "leg" so I can offset the coil seats. Traced the ballistic bracket onto a 4" x 1/4" piece os steel and then cut it out.







And then went to town...

Do you have some plan for the coil capture plate? Usually a .5" bolt should go through a plate that should come with your ballistic bracket and that hole in the center of the spring perch. The bottom of your coil would be captured between these to plates like this, there is a .5" nut welded under the spring perch.

Oh, ok I must have missed that. Dose the coil attach to that piece of pipe or just slide over it?

Just slides over it. The plan is to make a retainer clip like on the factory axle.
