I have the 48" rears up front and I just ran them centered on the pin. No worries about flex on the front end of the rig. The short rears make the rear a bit less flexy but its a constant and easy to get used to kind of flex.

My rear shackle hangers brace down to my fuel cell skidplate mounting tubes. There not in this pic, but I think they are 1" or 1.25" tube running down to the 1.25" fuel cell mount/skidplate.

Floor framing nearly complete. Plan is to use floor framing to stiffen frame, support 1/8" belly pan, support center pillow block for 2-piece front driveline, and support inner floor...oh, and keep snow/cold out and exhaust heat out!

Got some work on the axles. Rear housing work is nearly complete. Turned the balls on the front; need to set final caster and weld on shock tabs, ball gussets, and a truss.

Truss is 2" x 1.5" x 0.90 cold roll rectangle tubing. Welded each edge, then let it cool to the touch before moving to the next weld.

Diff pointed up 20 at the t-case, and balls set for 6 positive caster.

TG ball gussets--I liked the shock mounts better than the Marlin mounts in single shear. Cut the ball gusset off of the shock mount to accommodate the cut and turn, then re-welded it on so the shock mount is aligned with the perches and where the shock will seat, and ball gussets align with trunnion bearing races.

So how is yours coming? You still plan on dragging it out for KOH? I got mine together for New Years weekend, wheeled one trail cause I got there late Saturday evening. Then found my front DS hits the skid plate, not real bad but enough that I didn't want to run another trail and destroy my new front shaft. Man I love that car, it wheels and rides nice through the desert. Hope to see yours out here in a month or so.....

Oh fuck! Nice work!

I'm getting a little panicked. Just about done welding, and time to install everything.

Springs are hung; time to assemble the axles, hang them, install motor, and tons of wiring and plumbing!!

I forgot, are you going EFI or Carb on Propane? I got EFI and screwed up one dash harness so I pulled another from a junk yard and ran the whole thing under my dash But after I spend some time with the wiring diagrams I will narrow it down. Running the fuel lines, brake lines and clutch line wasn't to bad. Took about a day with drinking and smoking in-between. Funny thing is I found that all that little shit I did alot better when no one was over. No BSing going on to slow the work down But I did have alot of help from some freinds to get it done for New Years weekend. You will just love it after your done, I couldn't stop smiling that first night I drove it. Good luck and my the force be with you.

DRM- heres about the most up to date build thread, I was really bad at not updating it. Would work to late to post pics and my home computer is a POS right now. You might have sign up with our site to see pics http://rockbrawlers.com/viewtopic.ph...er=asc&start=0

Yeah, I get a lot more done with 1-2 friends helping than 3-4. I try to get a few tasks stacked up that I can just delegate, and PDC_RNR will run with them without any questions. Thanks Chris!

I'm running EFI, but I'm also trying to buy a 22r Davez motor off of Classifieds, and I'd use that intake if I go propane. I bought a used mixer/regulator off of another guy in Classifieds, but I think it's a 300-series mixer, so maybe a tad big for a 22R.

Motor should be here Saturday.

That's all A/C right?

For my 2rz stuff, I bribed Marty for wiring diagrams. "Mitchell's On Demand" is what they use I think. Mainly finding the pin out on the computers helped the most. The old diagrams are kind of hard to read. The 97' stuff was better laid out and easier to read. Have a Haynes manual for 79-95, but their not that accurate. Factory service manuals seem the best$$$.

Hoo Man, Your runnin' outta time Shawn! Is it gonna happen? What 30 days till departure? I'll honk and wave as we pass Your slow train rollin' along.

No motor yet.

Finally figured out how to brace the front of my rear shackle hangers--used some 1" x 2" x 0.090 rectangle tubing.

Probably use some expanded metal for a "floor" area and to strap down tool bags, ammo cans, etc. Trying to decide whether I should put it at the top of the xmember/shackle hangers, or down at the bottom?

PDC_RNR built my 48" stock rears spring packs. We'll start with 6-leaf front packs and 5-leaf rear packs.

He also tapped my fuel tank mounts and we got that area all primed and painted and bolted the fuel tank in. I mitered some short pieces of 3/4" tubing to hold the fuel tank plates.

Got the floor all burned in and primed. T-case mount bushings welded on, ready to bolt to the back of the duals.

had to clearance my "horseshoe" xmember to clear the rear flange.

Dash bar tentative location---right at arm's length where I can reach switches, so steering wheel mount and possibly passenger "oh shit handle" will be 2-3" behind this.

Pedals welded, primed, painted, and mounted.

I'll probably paint the pedals silver so they show up!
