Getting lots of questions about where I got my front spring hangers
Call capitol city jeepers in sacramento. They sell these hangers as a shackle reversal setup for a cj7 I believe. They have a local fab shop build them. The set normally comes with one regular hanger (like I used) and the other hanger is identical except it is notched out to clear the steering box. I had them get me two non steering side hangers so they are not notched out. I think they run 32 bucks each or something like that and they are stout.
Too many hobbies these days and not enough cash/time for all of them.
Progress has been a little slow lately but I am going to start cranking this week and get this thing on the trail for this summer. Next steps are to finish dovetailing/extending the tub and finish the tube extension of the frame.
Another. I still need to cut and bend that back body section so that it follows the cage line. It should be cool. Once I get this body work all dialed in I am going to sandblast the whole thing and undercoat, paint and line-x the inside. Looks pretty rough now but just wait fellas.
Here is all thats left:
- Lots of Sandblasting/Body Work/Paint
- Finish Seat Mounts
- Mount Fuel Cell
- Front Shock Mounts
- Brake Lines
- Mount Steering Box
- Lots of Finish Welding and Gusseting
Here is a pic of how the back is turning out. Cut a vertical seem and then started bending and hammering to form the metal to match the line of the rear tube section. Still lots of body work ahead but it's coming along.
