Finished the rear sway bar. Made some new mounts and flipped the old bar from the d35. Painted drums. LOL. Still trying to figure out if it's legal to run no tail pipe up here.

Right now i'm buttoning up the front then it's on to bumpers, fenders and boatsides. Some other info. Got a dakota master cylinder in to help with the brakes, stock chevy front lines bolt up and are like 6-7"'s longer then stock Tj's. Ran the hard lines on the inside of the frame. Got the Durango box to help steer (hydro assist at some point).

There was a fair amount of Fawk, cut it off and do it again. Live and learn. Should turn alright but only time will tell.

I'm a cheap fawker and i got a jug from my buddy for free. Plus i kinda like the yellow. The joints won't bind but they'll be a little rougher on the road.

Like your homemade rear shock hoop. What travel shocks are you running in the rear ? Dont know how to read 4 link calc, could you tell me your suspension link lengths ? You are stock wheelbase ?

Thanks

Whatever the biggest bilstien 5125 are. 14 and a bit of travel front and rear. Might have an inch or 2 over stock. I'll have to measure the links for ya when i get a chance. Pretty busy getting ready for this weekend. Went for a trial run and found some bugs that i need fix. I'll update the thread next week.
