Update
Got the fuel tank moved
I need to figure something out for the filler to make it look cleaner. It does work though. I might be a redneck, but i ain't that redneck...




Got the parts from Artec Ind. They are awesome and fit great. they come with 7/16" grade 8. Im using 1/2" so i drilled them out. Also my bumper is mounted with the same bolts so I burned them in. Less of a pain to remove the bumper.



Also some Ruff Stuff spring perches to move the axle back



Super happy how it turned out and getting rid of the factory blocks. The rear is a little higher than i wanted but Im ok with it.
side note;
super motor keeps turning my photos and i don't know why, i also like my computer so i switched back to shitbucket before my computer ends up in the creek...

Maybe I'll see you on the trail one of these days. If I ever get time to take it out.

Did a little flex testing yesterday at the shop. Did better than I was expecting. I probably could have gone a little more.

Small update
Went to Hollister for a day trip. Left at 6am.

did some trails. i think there was like ten people there. didnt get many pictures. But got stuck...

Got some body damage. Should have built sliders first. oh well.


I also ordered some longer control arms. mostly because I got lazy. they are 1 1/4" longer than stock. Shockingly I didnt have to cut out the old cam bolts to put them in...


Fits a little better in the fender

I'd take your time cutting out the rivets. They are a pain in the ass. I found a bent shackle after Hollister. So I'd try and find some stronger ones too.
I never really had wheel hop or axle wrap or anything before. I mainly did it so I didn't spit out a block. The rear feels a little softer now as well so be aware of that.
I'd recommend Apoc, cant beat the price and they were super helpful getting me the right part.

I'd get me some arms with some Johnny Joints or similar. Those tube arms with poly bushings are going to bind. Arms like that came on a TJ I had, a stock YJ would out flex that thing they bound so bad. The stockers flex the whole length of the link, so bushings are ok. With tube, not so much.

Ya I was pretty sure that was going to be the case. I did have a method to my madness though. Bushings were in pretty bad shape. Truck has 240k on it. I figured pushing the front axle forward at the same time would be beneficial. $7-800 for arms with heims or Jonny joints didn't seem smart when I plan to do the ruff stuff radius arms when I swap the axles and 39.5s. These were $300. Figured it was a good compromise. And I was being lazy...

I got some used Beard seats put in with some Crow harnesses



My buddy said something was missing on the front bumper. He had a shock hoop laying around and I had some left over DOM.




The End
for now

Can't forget the donkey dick I imagine the blurry pics are some photobucket BS.
