Do it right, get them both in.

OK I made the assumption arms would be made a the same time. If you have arms already that you are using you will have to build within those perameters.

I personally will be cutting and turning my knuckles. This way pinion angle and caster are not dependent on one another. However I drive it like it is now. Cutting the knuckles will come this winter. Mostly on the trialer to wheeling.

Nice, I'm doing the same, cutting and turning the knuckles, but I'll have to rotate my housing some to accomidate the TNT Y link arms. I think they only have about 2" of adjustment, so I'll put them at 1" and set the pinion.

When adjusted out ~2.5" you'll still have 1" of thread engaugement on 'em.

I dig the build. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Take lots of pics and keep us updated!

...and good luck on the recovery.

Sweet, thanks for the clarification. Lol, I'm just waiting on them to get here....whenever you get them in I guess...



I do have to say I really did like the 60 truss that you put on that axle. Nice build and nice to see it in person.....maybe next time there wont be an airshow next door and I can show Liz.

That is probably the second "worst" drawing I have ever seen.

(first is attached)

I dig it, and don't waste your time enclosing the cab. Make a soft top if you're that worried about it.

"I like lots of tube"
Vetteboy, is that crayon or colored pencil? Please tell me crayon...

It's really hard to do anything but laugh at either of those pictures.

I didn't make the one I posted, I stole it from someone else.

It's not a serious drawing, of course.

edit: Pipe, you'll probably want some more vertical separation on the rear links where they meet the axle.

Who gives a fuck about the quality of the drawing. Lets just be glad that "sell it" idea is out of your head and you are going to finish this beast

That's not a serious drawing? I haven't been this devastated since I found out the Easter Bunny didn't actually lay the eggs he brings around.


Pipe, aesthetically, it looks like that'll be pretty sweet. That's about all I'm good for advising on.

No the buckets are facing the right way .I think it comes down to who ever welded it up that day was high on fumes or something.The shock mounts should have been welded to the other side,the outside edge of the bucket not the inside edge.

Or they welded the right one on the left and the left one on the right. Either way easy fix.

The shocks will most likely hit the frame with the mounts in that location. I had to move my lower shock mounts outboard from the stock location to keep them from hitting at full articulation.

I've seen you driving around Va beach a lot. I always liked your rig and I think I've seen you at the VBJO meetups. But awesome rig!

Ya that is a possibility since their perches are not off set.

I had to do the same thing .I moved mine down and away .It still wasn't enough and i would hit the shock on the frame from time to time





It also allowed me to weld the perch to the LCA mount as well.

Pipe...Nice to see you're still wheeling. Or getting your shit together to start wheeling the xj again. I ran with you a time or two at Crozet this year (white ZJ). I like the build a lot but I have to say I'm surprised to see you cut it up as clean as it was before. Get better and get the xj done. See you on the trail!
