Built some replacement rear upper link brackets because the ones I built with a 110 welder back years ago when I was a broke ass college kid who didn't know any better totally needed replacement.

Welded up and chased the new upper rear links. When I was way younger, one year I told my mom I wanted a tap set for my Birthday; she didn't understand so she got on eBay and just ordered a million random lots of used and new taps. Lots of doubles in the normal sizes, however a 1.25-12 was one of them and a buddy owns an LH from building his Mega truck. Dumb luck better than no luck.



Also started on my direct link shifters for the Atlas and Klune. I love my little manual Clausing 8520 mill. Small enough that it keeps me from wasting too much material. More pictures of this later. Using a small bushing as the rocker/slider for the misalignment that occurs during shift motion.

Thanks!, and yes Fully Hydro. I am running a PSC kit with a tweaked and hopped up pump. It drives excellent. I have the load reactive steering valve so the caster setting on the front axle is still relevant and the steering returns to center as well as giving me some "feel" for how much force I am putting into the system. I am running the Artec double shear arms as well.

This project should have been done by now... but unfortunately we lost one of our really close wheeling buddies over the weekend and the local community is in shambles from it. He was a good guy and helped me work on this thing and we had been wheeling together since 2002. Heres to ya bud!




Exhaust work. Went ahead and put a new cat on it and installed an O2 sensor bung. Spintec muffler.

Finished putting this thing back together. Its a lot nicer than your Jeep.

Went wheeling...



Beat the snot out of the skid and barely scratched the paint. Muncie took a few hits too.



Camped in a school bus turned RV that hauled the Sami.






La-dee-fuckin-da... The end!

Awesome build and great videos. Like the ho72 axle. If I could go back a few months, I would have gone ho72 rather than the 14 bolt.

Keep the updates coming even if it's just wheeling.

Nice work on the Jeep. Do you happen to know how much stretch you have front and rear? What's total wheelbase now?

Thanks.

Not much at all going on with this. Just wheeling it occasionally. Still need to lengthen my spare driveshafts. Have a few trips planned for this summer. Been busy working on some other projects for friends, myself, and the wife. Once I buttoned this thing up, I was working hot and heavy on the Carryall build in my signature.

Thanks for checking in though. Next trip I'll put up some pics, videos, and such.

Photo cache drop. Went wheeling over past weekend with some good friends. Just a slack chill weekend with a bunch of knuckleheads.







^^ '80 Land Rover, RH drive, with a Turbo Diesel. Struggled some but the cool factor of hearing that little turbo spool made up for the open/open drivetrain.




^^ Daihatsu Hi-Jet Mini-Truck with a Geo Metro 3 cyl 1.0L with a 5 speed and center diff welded, stubs modified into driveshafts feeding stock Sami Axles and 31" Boggers. Double B roll hoop attached to a hydraulic dump bed. I think it has Acura struts and short arms for front suspension.

Few more... Still VERY Happy with the ORI struts. Should have gone 16" up front but 14"/14" still works well for where and how I wheel.















Event should have been sponsored by Maxxis... In this photo alone, from front to rear its 40" Trep Comps, 37" Creepy, 35" Trep Bias, 40" Creepy, then behind the camera is a LJ on 37" Trep Radials and a TJ on 31" Trep Radials. Whoever said that Maxxis tires suck on the east coast is... well...



Legit meaning to Co-dog'n .

Did you have to do any tuning on your ORI's? I was planning on running coilovers on the rear of my YJ but packaging would be a lot easier with Ori's vs coilovers/bumps/sway bar etc....

A little bit, but it wasn't bad. I bought a Nitrogen bottle from Arcet (now Arc3) and went ahead and bought the single line charge kit when I initially ordered my struts. I chased some numbers around for the first few trips until I got my pressures set where I liked them in the upper and lower chambers but didn't have to mess with the oil volumes at all since my rig (and yours probably is too) falls within the weight range the standard setup is designed for. I've tweaked the rebound setting on the lower shaft some as well, but thats as simple as a screw driver. I've even been known to hop out in Harlan with a flat blade screwdriver and soften them up for a long bumpy but faster ride across the park and then when I arrive at a rock garden or hard ledge, hop out and click them back where they were real quick. 7 detented positions to choose from. I like them a lot; so much so I am putting them on my Carryall project and pretty much every build that my bud's do now end up with them. We are actually finishing up a 1,000 HP Mega-Truck chassis this month that will have them. Just gotta learn how to tune em for mud racing for the guy.

Thinking about putting this thing up for sale. I don't have the time to use it and my focus is in a different direction these days and the poor thing is just sitting and rotting because I don't have a proper place to store it covered or inside. If anyone is LEGITIMATELY interested, send me a message.

Yes, but with a 400:1 final crawl in this thing, he had more than enough time to move... and make a sanmmich if he wanted to while waiting.
