More measurements please sir.

From the lower tube to the floor at b pillar?
Then the distance from it to harness bar?

They look to be almost identical degree bends on both tubes. If you're unable to determine the bend degree, could you measure how far both sit behind the b pillar?

Distance from back side of rear most body mount to axle centerline?

Distance from back side of rear most body mount to end of stock frame that's capped?

What gauge steel did you use for skins? Assuming you used a small break for the bend?

That should be enough harassment for now. Thanks again

I am out of town until Friday. I will pull the measurements for you either Friday or Saturday and get them to you.

Hey, you told me look at your build. Haha. Mockery is the truest form of flattery.

Thanks again

After wheeling it over the course of the year, I decided that I wanted to change a couple of things. First issue was the rear was too light and at times, the rear wasn't able to get decent traction due to where the axle was located. I decided to move the rear axle forward 3" and while doing this, I also relocated my airshock mounts. Now, I am in the process of pushing the front axle forward and tubing out the front portion of the frame directly in front of the motor mounts. I am also going to switch to an aluminum radiator and electric fan.

So by pulling in the back and pushing out the front, are you still going to be at 115"?

BTW - your rear tube work inspired my JKuggy. Thanks.

That is the plan...do you have a build thread for the JKuggy?

It is over where Lance keeps all of his slow red headed stepchildren:

I am getting the builder parts together to push my front out four inches and triangulate the front - 115 inches.

Finally have gotten around to getting some tube bent. The very front portion of the tube, ie...the first piece that will smack a rock, has been internally sleeved with a 12" piece of 1.5" .250 wall DOM which was plug welded in four spots and just for good measure, I had a buddy of mine TIG weld it. I also have the winch platform set up as well. Hopefully by the end of the weekend, the majority of the front tubework will be completed and I can focus on moving the axle forward. A few photos...

Got most of the front tubework completed and the axle has been moved forward 5". Upper airshock mounts are finished and once I get the links finished and the axle located, I can do the lower airshock mounts. Then it will be a laundry list of small items and then off to get painted. A few photo's for your enjoyment....

Finally got some time to work on the Jeep. The lower link mounts are in and the new links made and hung along with the upper link mount on the passenger side. Lower airshock mounts finished. Airshocks are kicked out 10* and leaned back towards the body 15* and set for 5" of uptravel. Finished tieing in the A pillars at thier second point (just in front of the firewall) still need to finish up the track bar mount (thanks to James @ BTF for it...lazer cut cromoly) a few pics for your enjoyment.

Not right now...once I rip out the dash, maybe I can do it...depends on what I can remove and what is in the way. Thanks for the compliment.

10-4, got mine moved into the new house, and hoping to start mimicking your tube work soon. Hopefully it goes together as cleanly as your backhalf. You've got me rethinking the front now.
