you're only on 32's bro. I'd worry more about Chromo axles and drivelines than a truss.

Grab an SYE and some good driveshafts, and Chromo axleshafts. And if you have a Dana 35 rear, get rid of that POS and go with something better. I wouldn't really worry about trussing unless you either plan on jumping it, or going bigger than 35's.

Edit: And steering. Make it beefy.

Re: Sierra Chapter Rigs

No need for chromos even with 32s
I rock stock both locked on 33s
He has an hd tie rod which is also just fine IMO

Spend the money on a locker and the rest on wheeling trips

I try to wrench at my buddy's shop in concord. But he is getting busy these days. I'll keep you in mind though. Any chance you do gears? Sliders is on the short list. I still haven't installed that Durango box

Does your xj have a big fox sticker on the back window? I am interested to see your sliders. I ordered some 2x6 steel from moose metal a few weeks ago, still waiting for a call from them. Where do you get your metal?

No I don't have a fox sticker in the window. I have a tire carrier that takes up most of the back. I do have my Naxja sticker back there though.



Yeah I also go my steel from moose. Probably won't go there again. I endup spending way too much money. I'm actually doing mini boatsides. So a stick of 1/4" c- notch and a 4x8 sheet of 1/4" later and I dropped about 480$ on steel from them. With a few cuts and presses it added up way to quick. I've heard of a better place in San Leandro where you only buy what you need instead of having to buy gross.

I just finished up my stiffeners and now undertaking a trans and motor swap with doubler and d300. Once that is sorted I will then be doing my boatsides. They may have to wait till after the Memorial Day run. I might have to throw my old bolt on sliders back on for that run.

Moose didn't even give me a quote when I ordered. Have you tried design construction on Howe rd or Pacheco? I haven't been there but I heard that they sell metal. My work uses them for some odd metal fab stuff that my boss dreams up
