jeep is looking good.....

I'm just now figuring out drivetrain.... I finally got my 32 spline input changeover from
Advance, and got that installed. then I bolted the Atlas to my GM 6L80 trans. then I
tried to use my transmission jack to lift up everything to mock it up below the jeep tub.

the jack wouldn't lift..... so I spent 2 days rebuilding the jack. then I finally just got to
lift the combo underneath the tub. to where it's almost touching a stock CJ7 tub,

I'm about 9" from the floorboards to the bottom of my trans pan.....

How far below your floorboards is your trans pan????

did you end up cutting into the floor to fit the trans and atlas??

--thanks for everything....

BTW, you gonna make the farm show this year? it's coming up Feb 11-13......

my daughter and I are going probably the 11th (tuesday).... watching the weather incase the wednesday is better..... it rained on us last year.!

What an amazing build. Been a lot of fun following along with your Jeep as it progresses. Congrats on a job well done sir.

Hi Boone,

prior to taking the rear leafs off, did you ever measure how high the tub rockers are to the ground?

it looks about how high I have mine sitting for mock up right now. seems awfully high up,
but then running a 42" tire it's gotta be fairly high I guess.

so you're going to do a 4-link/trailing arm deal now.. and the arms are on top of the axle tube?

are you triangulating the lowers? under the t-case is where they meet?

--Sherpa

Yes, triangulated lowers. Just figured out tonight Iíll have to lower all my mounts but Iíll have a flat belly at 24Ē. Rear should be 10 and 10 up and down. Getting about 2.5 more inches of wheelbase. This is all with a full tub, 4 seater kids in back seat
