The top of the cage at the highest point is 83 and the lowest is 80. My cage is higher at the Apillar and slopes rearward a bit. Its not a low rider at all, but it is 85" wide in the rear and 87" in the front. Its just a big jeep that look proportional.


I got the frame plates cleaned up and tacked/welded. Have a ton of welding to do. Hopefully I will have some more pics up soon with some tech....
thanks for the measurements. I just got my frame stretched 12". Im reworking my front truss on one side for some added clearance. I think my frame is going to end up similar height to yours and very similar build. Just a big ass jeep that looks right. lol. Nice build and your miles ahead of me. I have motor mounts coming in this week and should get all the drive train in and really start to get the 4 link set up. Looks like 112-114" for wheel base right now.

I thought it was the liquid apple pie that caused 'drain bamage' on each run, supplemented by paint chips?

I'm hoping you haven't updated because you've been so busy getting this thing built?

Lazy is right..........

Happel and I got most of the skid plate done, got all the front frame plating done, and primed. Wired wheeled all the welds on the frame and re-welded everything as well as finshed welding all the link mounts and cage tie-ins as well as the rear coilover mounts. I also got most of the rear frame painted.

I sent my computer and harness off to Wayne Hartwig for a tune and a rework.

Next up is to get the cage painted, the body set back down and cut the tube for the atlas.........


Pics of the skid plate and trans/transfercase mount.

Looks good.

You need to run some ribbing to help reinforce the skid plate. Primary concern is deflecting up when you drop down on it.

Can't tell what the plan is for the transmission mount but you need to make sure that it WILL NOT move independent from your Atlas support ring.

The ring set up is great for supporting the extra load but can create problems if the system is not set up correctly.

What up farm dog........I plan on adding some angle to the skid perpendicular to the frame in the front and rear of the skid. What do you think would be better, box or angle and how much?


It is a two piece skiplate where the other portion attaches at the two vertical tabs on the front of the rear skid and gets bolted to the frame. The front portion can be removed to service the transmission without having to drop the transmision support. .

The mount you see serves as both an atlas support and a transmission mount. The factory 4l60e mount attaches right below the vss between the transmission and the transfercase. This mount eliminates that and supports the atlas as well. Advance Adapters threw it in at no charge when I bought all my adapters.

Thougts?

How is your build coming along?

I didnt realize it was one mount for the whole set up. Sounds good.

I would use angle. Unlike your wemens - doesnt need to be too thick.

Well we went out to SFW to work on jeeps and somehow got sidetracked. The night started off with a lot of measuring, a few sodas and a few hot laps through some new wheeling areas..........no tech in this one, not that there is much in here anyway....

The quote of the night....EM "damn man it only took us an hour to roll the damn thing" I guess we weren't hitting it hard enough out of the gate...

Worked on the old girl a little bit last night. Did a little painting, got the wheelbase finally set and and the axles centered ang aligned. I'm at 112 3/4 at full bump. Got a couple things done to the motor and fuel system.

I have to say summit is pretty bad ass, i finallized my summit order Tuesday at 3pm and Wednesday at 6pm the stuff was on my back porch.

It is stupid how much those damn AN fittings cost especially when you start buying -10 stuff.

Just an update:

Pubes and I went to SFW.
He did some welding on the skid plate.
I drank his beer. That is all.
Stay tuned next week for an all new episode where I do some welding and Pubes drinks beer. Don't miss the never ending excitement.

Put 8 hours in today. PSC pump us on, RAM is mounted, I raised the trans and transfercase up about an inch to add more clearance between it and the skid. Finished both skid plates. I'll have some pictures tomorrow. I'm going to have to cut the tub over the atlas, hopefully the seat cage will still fit.
