this is a sick jeep loving it so far.. keep up the good work.. still wondering about your rad setup... how tall you looking to make this one? with the HUGe tires your running I'd imagine it'd be a good 3.5' to the bottom of the frame.. 4 linking it? good luck.. looks great!

LumberJack,
I'm a sign guy so I can get the Hardwoods vinal for cost.
Its a vinyl is applied to polycarb (lexan) then attached with pop rivets
Very easy, durable and cheap/quick to replace.

I think the tires will be out far enough that I will rarely rub the sides of the chassis.

First off, friggin cool build! Ive been wondering how it would look to pull off a 4dr wrangler done diffrently than the big red one on here. I like the looks of yours!

Can I go out on a limb here and make a few guesses? I see Texas plates hanging in your garage, Im guessing you are in Texas. And the sign, well, thats a local bank as far as I know, so are you in the Texarkana area? If so I would LOVE to come check this build out as it would probably give me a kick in the nuts to get something done on mine.

If not, dissregard this message as just another Pirate idiot.

h1's recentered and reversed
(yea i know, But I hate the way the front looks!)

Front Axle mocked in
(yea i will be capturing the bolt on the upper and no it doesn't hit the frame)

Link mounts the axle
(yea i will be bracing the uppers alot)

Lastly, you will not find a panhard bar... why? because I haven't put it in yet.

Why didn't you triagulate the lowers? Then you don't need a panhard bar.

This is the strongest link design

sliding on my lowers
Tire rub
having an unprotected transmission pan

The center chunk will have a rock cage in front of the brakes. The panhard will connect to the top of that and the bottom of the frame. Putting it uphigh gives me a high roll center for stablity.

I've done a horrible job of explaining this but i do have a plan so check back in for undates
