I MUST be missing the joke... that is NOT your ride hieght, is it? After following this whole build and seeing the low COG work and everything, that CAN'T be your ride height...

That's full droop. It'll be limited an inch or two up from there.

This is real ride height w/8" of bump travel.

I just read through this whole build. Very impressive!

Now on to the bad news... I'm pretty sure the front bumper is higher on the pass. side than the drivers. I hope it's the view...

Sheesh, everyone is a critic! We did the best we could with a tweaked out wrangler frame as a starting point. Next time I'll build my rig on a precision ground table

So there were two exhaust manifold bolts broken off in the head on the driver side. I tried to easy-out them and just made things worse, now the bolt piece was almost 1/4" recessed into the hole!

I ended up welding a nut to them and they came right out!


I put some lipstick on this pig - she looks hawt now. Shady body shop near my work hooked a ninja up.



Also measured for the rear driveshaft. This is at 19" of droop - a downs syndrome amount of travel. I'll limit it up a couple inches from there, but the driveshaft does work at these angles. Throughout the whole travel there is only 3" of driveshaft plunge. Not bad.



Just for the hell of it I flexed it out a little


How did I ever live without a lift??

you do some hella nice work! where'd you get a driveshaft that will allow that much up and down travel without binding? that droop image above is impressive.

Thanks!

The driveshaft shown in a standard 1350 CV from High Angle Driveline. It was the rear shaft for my old setup. I'll prob retube it for a spare after I get the new unit.

Once again she's fawkin badass

I like the laid back front grill and the LED light bars that are nice and tucked away. HOW MUCH ARE THOSE BITCHES AND ARE THEY BRIGHT?

I built a bad-ass YJ also,,,,but I wanted to use it on the street some. Some day I would like to build a dedicated off-road machine such as this.

get that junk on the trails already...sping is not to far away

Jeep safari is April 17th

...not cheap, but very bright. They packaged the best under the cage out of any other lighting option. I haven't found any lights that fit the grill to my liking yet so these will be it for now.

Thanks for the compliment!

I wish it were just a KOH spectator, but it won't make it there this year. I don't think I'll ever compete in this thing - I just want to mob around with my buddies at the hammers. The KOH racers are truly on another level.

New rear shaft from HAD. All of the angles work from full bump to 20" drooped out.

Definitely the upper and lower limits of what this thing can do.

ClamBump



Ride Height-ish


Drizooped


No binding, no bottoming, no separating.

The brake plumbing is next on the list.

Brizakes - lines run on the upper links




Tizo Pizoint - for extracting Guy, Parsons, and anyone else that did/does drive a Toyota


Rear upper link mounts are gusseted. Dash/wiring is on deck. Wyatt is helping me sort it out.

Engine cage is a work in progress. There will be a 1.5" tube hugging the firewall and some cross braces to the shock mounts.

Making it to EJS would be awesome! I'll let you know if I'm in the neighborhood.

Got some odds & ends done this weekend:

I pulled the water pump off and violated it.

Home made tap handle


Plugged the heater ports. They are 1/2" and 3/8" NPT plugs. Looks alot better than plugging it with a 180 deg hose, etc.


I also tackled the mysterious and debated "steam port." I tapped the top of the water pump housing and threw in a 1/8" NPT barb. I hope it does what it's supposed to do.


I thought plumbing the steam port to the water pump outlet is the closest thing to having it plumbed directly to the radiator, my radiator does not have a steam port connection. I'm not too concerned about having a potential air bubble in the hose from the water pump to the top of the radiator. I borrowed this diagram from Billavista Cooling Bible.


I also put a breather on my front diff cover, and plumbed the front and rear diff breathers.

All these little things checking off the list. Getting closer.

Made a sweet elbow for the back vacuum port. Now the vacuum brake booster is ta-tas.


Also, TH400 vacuum modulator plumbed. There is a spare port on the side of the intake that was easy to use.


Layed out the dash. I'll have it cut out at work.


Wyatt designed and built the upper radiator cradle, came out way pimp! It'll get tied into the front tube with a bolt-on bracket.
