Re: Trussed 8.8 build with traction bar

Did you set the pinion when you welded the springs on? How did you know what angle to weld them on at?

How do you like the traction bar so far? Im thinking I want to build one for my 9 inch

Re: Trussed 8.8 build with traction bar

I put it all together, set the drive line angle, tacked it then pulled it back apart to weld. Traction bar has been great so far. I had bent some leafs before which lead to adding it. It definitely helps the rear plant, only nag is it adds some noise but its a Jeep.. lol

Re: Trussed 8.8 build with traction bar

Great work, and thanks for reattaching the pics.

Are those Treadwright tires? I love mine- I'm on my 6th set between 4 vehicles.

Yes they are, I've replaced them since then with the newer bead to bead versions and they're great.

Concur. My only complaint is that they don't seem to keep much on hand. Every time I need tires, it's a couple months of waiting.

I used that as a great excuse to buy another set of wheels... I have a spare set of 33s and a spare set of 31s. Since I have the wife and kid's jeeps on 31s, they're covered. I need to wear out the 33s and go to 35s and Dana 44s for my XJ so it's common with my S10.
