ASHMAN's Jimmy's4x4 2011 Podium Promod Grand Cherokee Buggy

Im having Randy at Jimmy's 4x4 build me a Podium Promod rock racer. Its time to retire my old home built Cherokee XJ based buggy for a new lighter smaller chassis. I really wanted to continue building my own and build a from scratch chassis but Im in a temporary housing situation with no shop. Randy kicks out many badass rigs and was my top pic for builders.


The rig will be used for the Arizona trails mostly but we got the itch Judging for WErock and competing in sportsmans class in April. Goals for the rig are to kick ass on the AZ climbs, meet the Werock promod rules and meet the KOH/Ultra4 rules.

Specs:
2011 Jimmy's 4x4 podium promod chassis
1.75in DOM tube 48in wide
110in wheelbase
Twisted customs grand Cherokee hood
LQ4 with LS1 or LS6 intake, estimated 410hp
Th400
Atlas 4 speed
D60 front, alloys, bobby long flanges(pirate give away), upgraded outers, highsteer double ended PSC.
Shaved 14bolt rear
ARBs
Cutting brakes
Trail ready HD 17in beadlocks and 42in Pitbulls for trail riding and plan to get some babby BFGs37s for some race/comps.

My buddie Jeff at Ballistic gave me a partial sponsorship hookup on shocks: Front 14in 2.5in remote reservoir coil-overs and 14in 2.5 three tube bypasses, Rear 16in 2.5 remote reservoir coil-overs and 16in 2.5 three tube bypasses.


The Chassis is about 75% complete.
Randy will be updating the photobucket with build pics.

Were waiting on afew parts needed to continue the build.
The Ballistic shocks http://www.ballisticfabrication.com/ will be ready for pickup July 11ish.

The 16th Ill be driving up to Colorado to drop off the shocks and other parts at Jimmys and will be towing my old Cherokee buggy to the new owner Nick who will meet me at the Jimmy's shop.

I bought a SWAG action packer mount http://www.swagoffroad.com/ and mailed it to Randy for fitment. We think putting the radiator up high behind the seats with a wide skinny 22 gal fuel cell below it will fit best and leave room for action packer and cooler.


I modified the SWAG action packer mount, cut 1/4in ish off the top of the bottom bracket so the red handles can open wide enough to take the lid off without pulling the action packer out.

I thought about one of those for my build, but need to wait until my fuel cell is in. Good info on the "mod" to clear the handles.

Our planned date of the 16th is changing, Randy has a race that weekend. The shocks are due early next week.

Yea I will be keeping the new trail ready wheels and Pitbull tires from the jeep.

We got some more parts in and Randy put up some updated pictures.
1410 flanges for the 14Bolt, D60 and Altas outputs. Ive broke yokes from rock grinding, with these flanges I should not need a 14Bolt pinion guard and will hold up better to rock grinding.




14Bolt ring gear turned down for the shave with ARB installed. 5.38 gears for now.


D60 with Upgraded outer knuckles and Jimmy's high steer arms.


D60 suspension brackets



Chassis side lower link tabs

The LQ4 6.0 with an LS1 intake turned around rear facing. Will be using the stock exhaust manifolds for now and all internals will be stock.



The TH400 will have a trans go shift kit but will be the regular auto valve body for now. has a 2200 stall torque converter with anti balloon plate.
Atlas 4 speed


The grill was glassed in with the hood


It will have a removable front bumper to meet WEROCK rules

Yea, its an 86, BOM# 610255, inner axles are 36.68in and 15.96in
The stock SRW 14bolt has 31.5in and 37.5in shafts from the inside of the flange to the end of the splines.
Im excited to have that axle over the almost centered 78-79 axle I had on the jeep. The Offset center and high steer are gonna make it much easier to dive.
