40's, Tons, and Bypass shocks

I'm putting this in the hardcore section bc it didn't seem to fit anywhere else.
Build specs
--- 2013 JKU
--- super duty Dana 60 front
--- shaved and trussed 14 bolt
--- 5.38 gears/shaved
--- 14" coil overs and bypasses/inboard rear "FOX"
--- full custom cage
--- fuel cell
--- custom 3 link long arm (front and rear)
--- hydraulic assist steering
***tons of custom fab- most stuff built not bought**

oh and I am 16 and this will be my first vehicle and my every day driver
****Pics pending response from Deiselmh on photos

originally wanted to try and save the factory gas tank and that would not have worked with a four link

it turns out that we had to use a fuel cell anyway bc of the frame modifications required to onboard the rear shocks

Good for you. Get out in the garage and get dirty with your old man. Those are memories you'll never forget.

I take it pops has done a bit of fabricating before?

yeah my dad used to have a fab business and has built lots of stuff over the years. thats one of the coolest parts of this process to me. building and designing as much as possible rather than buying something and bolting it on.

We needed a diff cover that would work with the shaved housing
I found a piece of 1/2 plate for the flange

The shaved ring gear in this picture was the stock part used as a test fit for clearance.

We used 1/4 plate for the cover itself

The flange stayed pretty flat during all the welding but did warp a little.

We used a 6x48 belt sander machine to bring it back to flat once everything cooled off.

I wish my dad would have been able to pass on these skills to me. You are one lucky kid to have that education. Take advantage of it. Sounds like you are.

Thanks for the encouragement!! This is lots of work but also super fun!

Also, we did countersink the bolt heads on the lower part of the diff cover to help protect them from possible damage.

Next we started making cardboard templates to build an axle truss.

We will need one strong mount centered on top for three link and I really like the look of "fabricated" housings with "Backbone" truss so we will try to make that work with this axle also- (probably overkill, but hopefully cool anyway)
