Tons of updates on this one. I didn't work on it for a while due to starting a new job and working 7 days a week for about 4 months straight. Finally got some time to work on it again and I'm setting a goal to try to finish it by April 1st.

10) Mounted orbital and modified steering shaft
11) Took a wheeling trip in my TJ
12) Mounted light bar
13) Mounted rear back up lights
14) Mounted all harness tabs
15) Mounted all tabs for aluminum skins
16) Finished all 4 shock tabs on chassis and axles. Upgraded to 3/4" through bolt for steering rod end
17) Set spools and new gears in axles
18) Welded JHF double shear high steer kits on both axles
19) Purchased and cleaned up transmission
20) Installed new transfer case input shaft
21) Purchased all trans swap components, transfer case flip ring, and twin stick cable shifters
22) Installed driver rear corner tube work
23) Replaced passenger motor mount

Damn, just when I talk myself out of 47's this thread pops back up!

I'm dragging belly really bad on 43's and 120" WB, what WB you running. I'm wishing I would of kept mine around 115".

Build is looking good

Current WB is 126". I'm hoping with the 4 wheel steer that I'll be able to help keep from hanging up on too much stuff. I'll also be running 7" up travel front and rear so that should help out too.

Thanks. I'm motivated to get this thing finished. I'm sick of looking at it in the garage and want to start wheeling it. The next few weekends will be filled with long days in the garage.

3/14/16 Update

Updates.

All tube work for the belly is finished. Just needs tabs for the plate to bolt to it and it will be done. Will add some gussets in a few areas when I pull it out from under the Jeep. I added some extra tubing to support the rear lowers that isn't pictured, and also installed flanges for the skid plate to unbolt. It reaches all the way past the engine pan and angles up a few degrees at the very front to help it slide over obstacles a bit easier. Everything tucks up in there without hanging down, so I should have a nice flat skid. I've also got a little different idea than what most do to attach the skid plate to the bottom. It will result in not having any bolts on the bottom of the skid for a true flat surface. Hoping it turns out as trick as I think it will.

Trans and t/case are mounted.

Boatsides are finished on the passenger side. Just need to install 2 tubes on the driver side to be completely done.

I tied the front engine cage into the A pillar with a piece of tube on the passenger side. Going to do the same on the driver side as well. Should help make the chassis more rigid.

Rear link mounts are all reinforced with tubing to help spread the loads better.

Planning on building the boat side plating out of 3/16" AR400 and stitch welding it to the tubing. Will make a good smooth surface to slide on and will still be easy to replace in the future if needed. I'm hoping by using AR plate, that the gouging and denting will be kept to a minimum.

Just have a few more odds and ends to finish up and then I can tear it down for paint. Here's some photos I grabbed while working on it.

Hoping there is still interest here on this build. I finished out the driver side boatside tubes tonight and replaced a tube on the passenger side that I didn't like the cope on. Ordered $700 worth of plate for the boatsides and belly, trans tunnel, and new floors/interior panels. Using 3/16" AR 400 for the boatsides and belly, 12 gauge plate for the trans tunnel, and 1/8" 5052 aluminum for the floors and interior panels. My PRP 2" lap belt for the back seat came in today. Hopefully only about 1 more week of small fab stuff and I'll be ready to tear it all the way down for paint. I'm going out of town the next couple weekends so I'll be working on it week nights to get it done.

How hefty do you estimate it'll scale in at? All the notches look nice and tight to me, makes me want more practice with the squirt gun.

Hadn't really thought about it but I'm guessing with the wheels, tires, and axles that I'm using, about 5,000 lbs. The sprung weight should be pretty close to a stock Jeep considering how much body and frame that I removed and replaced with tubing and aluminum.

1/8" al flooring seems pretty thick. Is that normal for using aluminum? Or just going for overkill?

Keep up the good work. This things going to be sick. Looking forward to getting to see it wheeling.

Only 3.5 lbs. per sq. ft. Not sure if it's normal but will suit my preference. Hoping my first run will be K2 or Wolf Caves.

Started on the new trans tunnel and closing up some of the voids in the floor. Turning out pretty clean so far. The angle on top of the tunnel is just there to keep everything straight while I build it. In the end, it will have a removable panel on top, and removable panels on each side. One on the passenger side to fill the trans, and another on the driver side to service the transfer case.

Transmission tunnel updates. There are 3 large access panels for assembly and maintenance to the transmission, transfer case, and front driveshaft. All of the bolt holes will be outfitted with nut clips for quick and easy installation/removal of fasteners when needed. You can see an example of one of the nut clips that's inserted in one of the top holes.

What did you use the angle iron for (on top of the tunnel)? Was that just there for mockup?

I used that angle to keep the flat bar on top straight when there was nothing beneath it for support, and also to keep everything square while I was welding it all out.

Man, I did a double take at those pictures of your townhomes when I ran across this thread. I was wondering where else in the states they have townhomes like we do here in Houston. I'm fortunate to live about a mile from downtown but still have a nice yard and 2 car detached garage that'll be the home of my YJ when I get done with it at my brother's shop in Beaumont. Hopefully you have non-asshole neighbors. Badass build so far.

Awesome build


Thank you for posting the detailed or "random" pics as you call them, those are often the best ones and provide some "ah ha" moments for ideas

Keep it up!
