ZCARCZAR when you going to the Rubicon? Is the Beeter(Chris)going? I plan on going to the Con in the next couple months and would like to cruise up with a SoCal crew.

Looking good

As for the shock mounts....

I would be scared that youre going to bend the bolt. I know I bend mine and I just use the stock misalignments.

Also my shocks got all scratched up from the tabs running into them. When you install your shocks and tabs just articulate the shocks rod end and grind the top of the tab until it dosent bind or get hit.

Well I would think if the bolts are kept torqued to the proper amount, the clamping force would keep everything parallel to each other... But, I will definately keep an eye on them, never had a problem with bending before but I definately understand what you are saying.

that is a ready welder spool gun. looks like it had flux core wire in it (no gas cup) and also didn't have the cold start switch (making it the model 10000 if I remember right). I have the same one and love the shit out of it. 2 batteries in series and weld away. I have used mine in the shop on my mig (control heat with the machine, wire on the gun) to weld aluminum and stainless now. does great with both.
Hijack off

I like the mogs, but damn, if you're gonna build a buggy soon, all the work now??? I like the job you're doing and am amazed at what that truck has evolved from to what it is

Ok sorry for the delays in an update, had to work out of town for the last week... This is Sundays progress:

Stock mog hub being machined down to fit inside 8 lug rotor and fit the new 8 lug hub flange. Basically took ~2" off of the OD and machined the pockets for the lug stud heads to recess into:



This is the 8 lug hub flange that was shown earlier in this thread in a rough state. This is the rotor side finished:



3 of them done:



Here is a 99% complete hub. The new flange is welded to the modified mog hub. The rotor will slip over the assembly like new trucks do. Rotor indexes on the lip in the center of the flange. Studs are normal 9/16". Only thing left to do is turn the OD to get rid of the weld bead and then they are done. The joint was heavily "V" grooved so it's not a problem:





Finished hub with the OD turned to size:



Hub installed with rotor. I don't have the shorter bolts for the hub yet so I used a few of the stockers with a 1" spacer made from 3/4" EMT... Works for now.



Stock HMMWV rim with plenty of clearance:

Next was project was to build the final links for the front. As you saw in an earlier post I acquired some nice 2.5" 9/16" wall DOM for my lowers and 2" 1/4" wall DOM for the uppers. Since the lowers were 9/16" wall the ID became 1.375" which needed to be opened to 1.5" to clear the tube adapters. So I bored a 1.5" hole into the end of the links about 1.5" deep, finally got to use my steady rest:



Now the tube adapters fit and you can definately see how thick these links are... Next up was to taper the ends to make them look a little nicer:



Tapered and welded:



Installed:



Never thought I would think 1-1/4" heims are small but after these links, I'm thinking so. Don't think they will bend? In person it really is comical how big the links are. Got all the links finished and all the 8 lug hubs finished today.

Also got one coilover assembled and installed:



I got new shocks but re-used the coils and hardware. I cannot find one of the coil carriers so I didn't get the pass. shock in tonight but I'll find it in the daylight tomorrow and get it on and get the thing sittings on it's tires.

I think I need some lower rate coils now so I'll have to do some math tomorrow once it's sitting on it's own weight and see what I need to do.

Yes I know I can't change the lug studs in these if I break/stirp one As I said earlier these are temp to get me to the rubicon and moab in a few months. I'll be building the solid one piece aluminum ones once those trips are over, just don't have time at the moment.
