I looked for about a year. I saw this one listed for $1000 and bought it over phone with PayPal.

I want to do some tube work in the future so I spaced the 2x6 sliders out with some spacers and also corrected for the nose taper of the MJ.





Welded some 2x1.5 angle to the inner floor to support the inner part of the sliders.





Tied the sliders into the "frame" with 2x2 1/4 wall.







Fully welded.

Practiced on scrap sheet metal to get the welder dialed and then burned them in. They look pretty good imo.

Cut all the stock brackets off. Made LCA brackets and skids, lower shock mounts and upper link mount brackets from 1/4Ē flat bar.





I mocked everything up first to make sure it all worked before I started cutting the tube. Upper and lowers links are identical in length. I also pushed the axle as far forward as possible with the steering box in the stock location. I have to finish the panhard par then I will cycle everything for a final check.

At ride height lower links are at 10 degrees and the upper is level. I have 9Ē link separation at the axle and 6Ē at the frame.

Hell of a nice job so far! I think I'm going to do the same as you and weld the cross member to the frame stiffeners and make the center section bolt-in

I made the panhard bar and frame side mount. I flexed it out and everything looks good to me. I took it all apart and will start welding it all up tomorrow.

Any thoughts on a rosette welds for the links or is that a waste of time?

Looks good! I picked up a Miller Multimatic 215 last year, and have been using it in my 2nd shop....works great with .030", I've definitely been impressed with it.

Cut the links.





Drilled for rosette welds.



Deburred the insides.




Cleaned the bungs with some alcohol.



I measured the bunt wall thickness and got the welder dialed in for the rosette welds.




No warping to the threads. Heims thread in just fine.



All welded in. Welding circles is hard for me, not sure if there is a technique? I probably just suck at welding. I burned them in hot so Iím sure they will hold but they donít look good at all.



Sanded down and a coat of tractor paint.

Used gloss tractor paint for the links and the axle.



Spent half the day sanding and wirewheeling the axle. Axle is going under the jeep tomorrow!





Panhard, upper link,lower link and coil mount all tie into each other. Should be pretty strong

Amazon had spartan lockers for 160 bucks so I picked one up and some extended brake lines for the front. Going to install the locker then put the axle in tomorrow! Iím excited to back this thing out of the garage

Installed the spartan locker.



Got the axle in! I am super excited to see it sitting on all 4 wheels





I wanted to check the clearance of the frame side panhard mount before I welded it on.

Flexing it out. Measuring for shocks and bump stops. Also finishing the panhard mount.



Full stuff and lock to lock on the steering. A lot of room! I need tons and 37"
