4 door xj with 60/70 with coilovers
 
Well, I've lurked around here for a few years looking at all of the different builds. I finally decided to step it up on my build. Before I was running a trussed locked/d30 and 8.8 with bds 4 link in the front and bds leaf springs in the rear with 36" iroks.

Here are the Plans:
Front coilovers
79 ford kingpin 60 with 1 Reid knuckle
5:13 gears
Welded
35 spline outers
35 spline Yukon hardcore locking hubs
Artec full truss with ram mount
Trac bar mount
Psc double ended full hydro
Disc brake brackets and rotors setup to clear 15" rims (even though I will no longer be using 15s)
79 ford e350 Dana 70 rear.
Diy disc brake brackets and rotors/calipers setup to clear 15" rims
5:13 gears
Detroit locker
Yukon cut to fit chromoly shafts
Leaf spring swap
Anti wrap

Tires:
38.5 maxis creepy crawlers
16" stazwork double beadlocks

Inside:
Cage
Corbeau rs seats

Pics to follow

why a 70 rear instead of a 14 bolt?

ranger4.0 01-14-2016 10:34 PM

Sounds like he got matching axles out of a donor vehicle

nickjc13 01-14-2016 11:05 PM

I bought them from a friend who bought them from a friend who ran them. Hence why only one Reid. But now knowing what I know I should have sold the rear end or trashed it and got a 60. The original owner liked to mud ride and ride through a lot of water. One shaft came out like butter the other shaft was hell. After trying everything I could, we cut the center pin out of the carrier. Put a rail road iron through the other side and whaled on it. Shaft wouldn't come out. Heated up, still nothing, ended up having to cut out the carrier and then cutting through the carrier/bearing/ and shaft just to get the main part of the shaft out. Then once I got the shaft out, I could not get the spindle nut off of that side. The spindle was mushroomed perfectly. I hear this can be from running the wrong hubs but I am not sure. I had to grind the mushroom down to get the spindle nut off. Then once I got that i had to pay someone to cut off the bad part of the spindle in order to spin the new nut on. I am still looking for a thinner spindle nut to possibly double nut the spindle.

I will have to re organize this thread once I can get on a computer. Too hard to do it on an iPad. But here is a teaser front end pic.

sorry for the thread hijack, but how do you like the BDS 4 link front??

nickjc13 03-08-2016 04:49 PM

I like it all but the fact that the front uppers still use a bushing mounted on the axle like the factory. It has made it a pain in the ass. And I hate that I still have to run a trac bar. Id much rather be fully triangulated but I did not want to have to build a crossmember so this was the next best option.


I will be finishing this thread very soon. Jeep is almost complete.

quit being a smart ass. Ha :flipoff2: Just because you know the problems I have been having with this axle.

nickjc13 04-08-2016 11:14 AM

is anyone interested in seeing the rest of this build? It is basically finished and I brought it to Choccoloco Mountain for a shake down run. If there is interest I will do the build thread.

post up some more pictures

Bamaguy84 05-06-2016 08:55 PM

I'm in the process of gathering parts to do a 94 Cherokee. I'd like to see how you did yours.

AKIQPilot 05-13-2016 11:11 PM

Nice work Nick.

Looks like it came out pretty good. Post up some more pictures of your build. More pictures are always good. Helps people develop their own idea how to get something done.

CherryXJ 05-21-2016 03:07 PM

Post it up! I'd love to see it as I am dreaming of my 4-link but not sure how I am going to do it yet

CobraMarty 05-21-2016 04:03 PM

Really want to see how you did the coilovers.

nickjc13 06-10-2016 09:09 AM

I will post some later today, I just got back from my honeymoon so that's the reason why I haven't responded.

jeepman2250 08-17-2018 07:12 PM

What happened to this thread? I really wanna see the coil mounts and link setup

nickjc13 11-05-2019 10:12 PM

I honestly forgot about this for the longest time. I can post pictures if people would like to see it.
