ended up making some PVC shock units to make sure clearance would work

there is not much room to separate the coil over from the bypass. center to center separation ended up at 4.25”

hopefully this will be enough . bypass tubes etc clocking could be a problem :0

started boxing the frame and adding some tube to stiffen everything up. once everything was tacked together we just pulled the rear half of the frame section off as it was easier to finish the welding and fabrication with it off the vehicle.

We boxed in the frame where it was cut to clear the shocks and also finished fitting up the tube reinforcement.

so some of the coil overs showed up, but still waiting on the bypass's
but it looks like they may fit OK .

Oh, got the rear frame section painted and welded back on to the jeep

We did a little clean up on the tub cuts and finished it off with Raptor liner.

I have seen some people close these in from the inside, but I really like the buggy look and want to leave them open so you can see the shocks from inside the bed.

Hopefully the tires wont sling too much mud/water through this opening :/

Since the back is now more of a bed, we built a "firewall" to keep the interior and exterior separated

Sheet metal rolling is not perfect but this will be covered in raptor liner so should be OK

Had to re-paint the rear part of the roll cage since the rear shock mounts are welded up.

This turned out to be way more work than expected. Lots of masking and sanding just for a small of amount of paint time, but it needed to be done and I am glad it is over with.

You’re running coil overs, bypasses, and urethane bumps?

Yes, well maybe. original plan was to have hydraulic bump stops. The shock engineers at Fox said that this was redundant with the way the bypass's are set up and the guys at EVO claim they run no bump stops on their cars with my shock setup.

We will wait to test in the real world, that's why we welded in the cans in case we need hyrdo bump stops, but have the adjustable urathane stops in there now just to keep the shocks from ever hitting dead bottom.

Also , no springs yet, but it looks like the bypass tubes may clear the springs. It will be super close though

With the main parts of the rear figured out, it is time to get started on the front.

Cutting off all the brackets is a MAJOR drag- 8 hours plus of cutting and grinding. Used almost every type of destruction tool in the shop.
