Cool. This kind of mirrors what I'd want to do with my 89 but it currently sits on a 4.5" lift. I don't think they'd work well for 40s on a super duty axle.

It probably would work. Youíre going to have to cut up the wheel wells anyways.

I'm going to need to learn how to weld or make more money first. I might just sell the jeep and get out of the hobby due to finances. This shit ain't cheap and I'm not skilled in automotive repairs.

Yeah it ainít cheap. Anyone that says you can do a ton swap for less than $5k is nuts. There are so many things big and little you need. If you had every tool needed and how to use them you could do it a bit cheaper but not much.

I have a question, for your rear axle did you use the parking brake cables that went with the axle or use something different. I got my front axle in and now doing mocking up the rear.

Depends on the year or rear axle you use. The newer than 08 have a weird setup but I used 2 passenger side cables and hooked them into the factory xj bracket. Then used the little cable clamp things to attach them to the XJ adjuster.

Yeah, well at lest I believe so. My XJ had a disc brake Ford 8.8 and a HP30 in it when I bought it. So it could have been swapped to a ZJ or something. It had a bunch of work done to it by someone. Not the guy I bought it from though, he just thrashed it. The brakes work pretty well though but I may swap in a 2500 Ram Van master cylinder eventually.

Here is a link to a set of leaf spring sliders I made using the UHMW and they were pretty quiet: https://www.diymetalfabrication.com/...pring-sliders/




I got the bearings swapped out. Itís a bit quieter now.

Looking good, I'm trying to figure out how to post pictures, wanted to show you some pics of my build. My neighbor works for a cable manufacture and showed me how to shorten the parking brake cables. Turned out really nice.

Is the trailer for hauling your toy? I thought you drove it where ever you went. Will the toy fit between the fenders? Are they removeable or HD enough to drive on? Even if you drive most places, it would be nice that it fit on your trailer in an emergency.

The fenders are removable. I do drive it a lot and most places within an hour or so but any further I usually trailer it. Itís so capable that I keep pushing it harder and eventually Iím going to break something. Plus, now I can go more places outside my normal circle and not have to borrow one anymore.

I can take a couple pictures. Itís got a single 3/8-16 bolt on the front and back and then the inner fender slides into a piece welded to the frame of the trailer.

the width of my rig is just over 83" and the trailer is 83". So I will have to do something with the fenders. How Wide is your rig?
