First time I am attempting to do anything like this :eek::eek:Thought I would throw up some pictures for some feedback. It is all thanks to Pirate that the factory junk is out the window :laughing:

Prior to this, the biggest thing I had ever done was a 1.25" body lift on the TJ...Just goes to show what a Red Star and some patience can do for you.

2002 TJ
4.0L
NV3550
NP231
14B/60
42" Iroks

14B Shaved and Disc'd



D60 E-locker installed!



Front D60, hi-steer, yukon shafts, 5.38 gears, even imitation Deadenbear knuckles, done!

Cool I like it. Can you post up some more of the BTF rear frame like around where you mated it up to the factory frame? Post more when you can.

Looks good Gis.....can you post up a photo of your ram set up that shows where/how you mounted the static end of the ram ? How many inches did you stretch the front and what pitman arm did you use with the astro box ?Thanks.

Here are a few frame shots I could find:





and to everyone concerned about weight, go through one mud hole and all that bling is worthless :flipoff2:



Let me know if you need different shots. basically, you chop the frame as soon as it flattens out, just infront of the body mount.

Rugger, I dont have a pic handy but the ram is attached to the diff cover. I had seen a number of people do it so I just copied them! The front is stretched 6-7" and I am using the factory Astro Van pitman arm (its a reverse throw box).

I hope this helps you both!

Be sure to reinforce the upper link bracket on the front. I ran the same ballistic bracket, it tore on all 4 sides, bent a coilover shaft in the process. It looks good, but the cutouts severely weakened it.
