Haha I almost did the same but I'm keeping the first week in March as my target finish date. I didn't wheel till Memorial Day last year and didn't get out as much as I wanted. Trying to change that this year.

Nice! I try to get up to Rausch about once a month since I m only about an hour away. My cousin runs a nice little samurai with us. We're putting a shogun doubler in it right now. It's a capable little thing for only being on 33's.

Let me know when you're headed up to rausch next

Back on all 4's for now. Everything is painted, tight, and ready to rock. got some exhaust work, fuel plumbing, and other stuff to do yet but its a roller again.

Boogers







Tried to flex it out in the garage but hit the garage door track before i really got any articulation, but here's the pics anyway.

Had some spring issues that needed to be sorted out since I was able to get a better idea of how the coilovers are supposed to be set up (first time 4-linking or using long travel dual-rate coilovers).

I was running at 14" 110 lb. tender spring and a 12" 250lb main spring. My ride height was good but I olny had about 1" of threads left to go lower and the springs dropped out of the upper seat at full droop. See pics.

Ride Height


Full Droop


So I called up Poly Performance and spoke with Andy. Awesome guy and great service. He hooked me up with psrings that should suit me better. I will now be running the same 14" 110 lb. tender with a 14" 130 lb. main spring to keep my ride height and 5" up/9" down all the same or close.

Also finished mounting the RCI 2161a fuel cell and re-installing my back seat.



Lastly, I fabbed up some poor man's air bump wannabe's. Going to use some 2" DOM I have laying around and weld in the caps that Neil "WarH31" cut out for me while he was fabbing parts for the Got Trikes tube bender that we're building.

Looks fun! My wife gets out "to take pictures" on exteme stuff like that

Your cross member will turn out better next time if you cut the horizontal pieces corner to corner instead of at 90 degrees. For example, the top of piece 2 should go all the way out to the corners of 1 and 3. This way you end up with a trapezoid instead of a rectangle and you don't have to piece/fill all the corners.

Agree with you completely. I noticed this once I laid it out as you see in the pic. Just didn't go back and make it "right". Lesson learned haha.

Waiting on springs and limit straps so I started on the frame tie-ins. The compound angles were a pain. Still need to finish the a-pillar tie-ins. I used the Barnes 4WD crossmember bushing kits. Really cannot beat the quality and price that Barnes gives you.

Footplates


C-Pillar




B-Pillar


Limit straps, springs, and A-pillar tie-ins are on the docket for tonight.

More work last night. Limit straps and bump stops are done and it's riding on the new springs from Poly performance. Running 110/130 14" springs in the rear for anyone who's curious about corner weights of a full frame/full body YJ.

Here's my poor man's "air" bumps.




First time out of the garage in a while.




Still had 2" up and some left to go dow

Hopefully I'll get this thing finished up this week.

Main things that still need to be finished:

A-pillar frame tie-ins
Mount shock reservoirs
Finish exhaust fab
Weld on beadlocks
Replaces D60 and 14B axle seals
Fab trans tunnel/console
Bleed brakes

Hoping to get it all buttoned up by Sunday night. Pics to come.

5" up. 9" down.

As you can see, I can go down to about 3" of uptravel with my adjusters. There's plenty of room to adjust rdie height up from there though. I am shy about 12.5 gallons or 80lbs of fuel in the pics. (6lbs per gallon w/ a 15 gallon tank = 95 lbs)

You can see where my adjusters are at in this pic.

Get these now! You'll appreciate it later! Saves all the junk getting in the axle tube.

Don't know why the link isn't posting right. Go to east coast gear supply and look for dana 60 axle tube seals. Do it before you regret it!

Mounted the reservoirs and changed out my mock up bolts for the coilovers and B and C pillars to grade 8 yellow zinc.

Reservoirs are mounted with hose clamps welded to the tub. Cheap and easy. Hopefully they hold. If not, then Hitman can say "I told you so".

A-pillar frame tie-ins are done and the cage is completely tied into the frame at 6 points. The Barnes 4wd crossmember mounting kits are what I used. They're the cheapest bushing and tab kits I found online and they're beefy. Plus it's nice for us East coast guys to get builder parts in 2 days or less. The Cali boys get all the perks of local businesses.

On to the pics:
