First design axles 1984 and earlier use a different pinion straddle bearing than 1985 and later
Second design SRW axles in 1-ton pickup trucks and 3/4 ton Suburbans changed to allow for a slide-off drum (drum can be removed without pressing out the wheel studs). The backside of these hubs is not machined flat to accept a rotor, for example. The hub flange is also further inboard to allow for the thickness of the drum.
Good post...I came across the same info. The only difference it mentions regarding the center section is the additional fins so I can't see it being an issue.

We left some of the tab in place to mount our Upper 3 Link Mount to...I'll have some pics of that later.

Custom Pitman Arm and Custom Hi Steer Arm...we kept the box in the stock location and pushed the axle as far forward as possible.

Question about your 14 Bolt Shave Kit- If you are going to cut the axle with a sawzal/grinder...How do you know how much to cut off since you have to cut the diff and the cover?
Not enough and you aren't getting all the bang for you buck. Too much and the ring gear will rub.

Thanks I am very interested in your kit vs. buying from a particular other source.

The directions are very self explanatory, and if they aren't you should be paying someone else to do it. They give you measurements of about everything they can.

Hi Scott, if you drop me an email (see the link in my sig below) I'll send you a .PDF copy of the manual. We've provided as much info as possible to make the install very straight forward.

Time to finish up the front end! Here's some pics of the D60 suspended by our TMR Customs Front 3 Link Kit, 14" ORI Struts and TMR Customs Shock Towers.











And some more cleaning/prep before final installation of the cage.

Looking awesome as usual, although it would look even better with square headlights.

do you have any pics of front driveshaft clearance with the frame? i'm getting ready for a same swap in my TJ, and I would like to see what kind of clearances I'm up against. Thanks. Love the build. Even if it is 'cookie cutter.' There is obviously a reason TJ's are the most popular platform around...

Front driveshaft is a bit of a soft spot for Tim and Mike.

Looking great. Top notch everything! Keep the pics coming.

has anyone done those style front towers on a YJ?
the TJ frame has a ton more room in that area
would a set of the rear towers I ordered be a better start point for the front of a YJ I wonder?

What are the length of your rear lower arms?
I am having issues with my 14" ORIs contacting the frame or the tire and I think it is because my rear links are too short (lowers are 28") which causes the axle to swing further under the vehicle when flexed.

Thanks,
Scott

Hmmm...good question! I personally don't know of anyone who has used them in the front of a YJ...but that's not to say it hasn't been done. A set of the rear towers would definitely give you the most fitment options because you could trim them to suit...so they are probably your best bet.

You got it! We used them both front and rear, and they are on sale for 50% OFF until Monday evening.

Hi Scott, our rear lower arms are 32-1/4" center to center. The clearances in the back are extremely tight...at full stuff the top of the tire is 1/4" away from the strut tower, and at full droop the strut itself if 1/4" away from the bottom of the strut tower. Any other questions just ask!

For the second month in a row you exceeded the bandwidth limit and crashed our site...now that we're back up we're extending the sale until Tuesday to make up for the lost time!

Awesome build! Can't wait to see the finished product. I'm building something similar, 14 bolt 4 linked on a CJ frame (now tha I read what I wrote, really no similarity other than the 14 bolt).... In any event am intersted in how you are going to run your brake lines to the rear. I am thinking hard tube on top of the frame and then a ss flex hose to go around the top jj to hard line down the upper link to flex hose again. Please post some pics of your solution! Anxiously waiting!

We ran stainless braided lines front to back. I'll get some pics up later so you can see how we routed everything.

Next up it was time to finish off the steering. You'll see in previous pics that we machined a dish into the front diff cover, we did the same on the tie rod to gain some extra clearance and get as much steering angle as possible. Again, we're using 1.5" solid 7075 for the tie rod and drag link. After drilling and tapping the ends we tossed it on the mill and machined out the additional clearance.







Then it was time to install the Derale Power Steering Cooler. We didn't want to bury it under the hood, so we kept it in front of the grill so it would get some airflow. We had to machine some clearance on the backside of the cooler to stuff it tight against the grill, and some clearance along the front side to jam it in behind the winch. I'll have some better finished pics later. Here's a pic of the mounting brackets we machined from aluminum.



Next we had to finish installing the Derale Atomic Cooler in the rear for the AW4 and route all the required lines.
