Got happy with the cut off wheel and the sawzall. ...and you thought body lifts weren't cool any more.



We cut the body off in the rear and are raising it 4". This will allow me to run my 10" of up travel and retain some sort of tub.

A crappy mock-up pic


Busted out some sheet metal skillz (or lack thereof )


These pieces match the inside profile of the YJ door opening.

Welding


More to come, passenger side is next. The rear corners will get skinned, etc.

Damn, nice update although not what I was hoping to see. I guess I should have expected it when you picked up the bypass shocks. I was curious to see how low you could go and still keep the top similar to what TennyCar did. I just got through mocking mine up today and am hoping to get around a 22" belly with at least 7" up and still maintain the stock soft top.

You should be good with those numbers and retaining the tub skin. I have a 19" belly (22" to the frame) and 10" of up. That gives you about 5" more to play with than I had at full bump.

Wow, very nice build. I like the no compromise approach. When's it gonna be done?

Here is a sneak peak at what we got done.



Tub is clearanced for the 40" goodyear at full bump - articulation. Rear half of the cage is coming together. There is a hoop running level with the top of the tub that ties the B-pillar in with the down bars.



Looks fast just sitting there.

Shock mount depends on the rear cage section. Ideas are changing, so is the mount design. The cage is getting worked on some more today.

B-Pillar tie-in, it'll get reinforced.



Cut the rear floor out. Really cleaned it up back there.

My blank canvas, haha...


Back hoop turned out nice. C-pillar ties into the back corners.


Back corner plates They're fully boxed in.


Head-on cage view


Rear wheel well at ride height. Lost of room there for 10" of UP.

Santa came early

King 2.5" 3-tube bypasses - 14" stroke



Sadly the Kusters will not be used. These will package up much more cleanly.

WHITE FENDERS BRO
While TRD was doing work on the Toyota I goofed around with the new hood and came up with this:



Cleaned it up a bit. The hood even latches to the grille

...and some old-school inspiration

I gotta hand it to ya man, this has got to be the baddest heep build I've seen in a long time. Too many end up giving up the tub for tube, keeping the heep look is a challenge, and one you are pulling off nicely.

Keep it coming.

No real updates - but I'll throw up some pics anyway

Got a can of clear enamel and shot the front bumper area. I'm down with the bare metal look. I painted a small tube and put it in the back of TRD's truck as a weathering test. I'm a little wary of using clear for my entire chassis. We'll see.



Building braided stainless steel lines with AN fittings is a huge pain in the ass. I started with the return line from the reservoir to the pump. ...starting to get the hang of it.

Good job on your build. Do you have any photos of your power steering pump mount? I'm swapping a 5.3 into my ZJ and I had to move the power steering pump up out of the way of the steering box in a similar manner. Thanks.

Well not quite, but that rig is a hell of a deal.

The rear shocks have a home and the rear suspension has been cycled to ensure everything clears. Its capable of pulling 20" at the axle, split up & down. Will be closer to 18" bumped & strapped. Driveshaft angle is a little scary at full droop, but will work. I'm looking at at least 5" of driveshaft plunge. Hopefully a HAD can accomodate.

I'll post up a pic or two when I find my memory card reader
