Taking the advice of the POR gurus I notched the frame of my CJ-7 to make sure I have room for the perty new set of Fox Coilovers. Is this a functional splice or is it going to break!

:D

Looks like it will hold. The only thing that I would have done would have been to skip the 90* cuts. I would have tapered them, mainly just for the smoother, cleaner look.

the steel on the inner part of a cj frame is thinner then the outer, you may want to tie the outer part to the gussit a little more:p

Better FAWKERS :flipoff2:



Sherpa, I will pull the tires off to see how wide I will be going with the new HP60 rear seems like about 8" wider then the original CJ-7 track width..

why not just run them inside the frame rails??
running them inside the rails causes 2 issues:

the side-to-side efficiency goes way down, and it takes up

alot of space inside the tub. also might complicate gas-tank

routing, and other misc stuff.

Hmm, how wide are your axles WMS to WMS and what's your tire offset?

Would changing either of those things have let you keep your frame intact? :D


Looks great, though! :beer:
