I had a passenger on the last trip to Moab up Pritchett Canyon that really liked to shoot video. Enjoy.

Rocker Knocker continues to be my nemesis, but the bypass isn't easy either. I also made the normal like on Axle Hill unassisted also for the 1st time. Usually I have to use a cheater line up the shelf from the left. One of the harder little things this trip was the ledge area just before axle hill, that had changed a bit and is now a bit harder.

I've been reading through your thread but haven't been able to find what you used for a steering column? Getting ready to start doing some modifications on one I've had since 1978. It's a 47 got a flathead Ford V8 in it, original trans transfer case Axles. Tossed a 33 inch tire on it just to see what it would look like.

I just used a universal hot rod column from Speedway Motors.

Thanks, got a couple more questions. First you you should blog this thread with an index and sell it for bucks.
What hanging pedals did you use? Also I'm going to put an AMC 20 in the rear that has a Detroit Locker in it. I'm a little concerned that it might be a little squirrely as light and small as this vehicle is. Which lockers are you running? All my other Jeeps have Air Lockers in them.
Thanks

I need to make it a PDF or something. I did get a word copy of it put together with some help from friends when photobucket was exploding.

I am using a slightly modified XJ pedal assembly.

I am running am automatic front locker (Yukon Spartan) and a selectable ( OX air shifted ) rear locker. I don't like rear automatic lockers, but really like them in the front with the rear selectable. That is actually my favorite combo to date. My new truck is selectable/selectable and i honestly dont like it as much in a lot of situations.

Can you explain this rear frame crossmemeber detail?
In your frame drawing you have the rear bumper sitting 1.75" low, and here I see there's another tube behind it, at the top of the frame-rail level.

All I have of my GPW is a tub and tin, so I'm trying to imagine what drives the desire to have the bumper sitting lower than the frame rail.

Thanks!

Unless you trim the rear sheetmetal of the tub, you have to drop the bumper about 1.75" to clear it. That is just how the frame fits on the tub with the 4" kick with the stacked rail design.
