Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Sweet old Ford! yea I wouldn't pull those axles for minor upgrade.

I see you used SFR inner frame plate. Mine took a hit on front driver corner. Wheeling it locked for years is doing some damage to frame rail. I'm thinking i'll sleeve all the way to the inner plate. You happy with your steering now?

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Spent the day laying under a trailer runing this 235. Ive had a love hate relationship with it since it made its way into my life. Today was a love it day. Burning overhead up hill through shity material. Crank n bake baby.

On topic the jeep had her first rocky trail maden run steering survived ruff stuff covers sliders fenders gashed up muffler is mangled but hanging in there.

Things I learned shes tuff enough to be drug through rocks . 3.55 gears suck, winch is a must but is killing approach angle. Need something to lay on rocks to protect cable.

Thats a spintech 3000 for the ford. If its not super loud ill be getting one for xj. Probly put a 1/4" plate on it.

I guess a learning phase is all. Im new to inverters. Took some getting used to a machine that's learning how I weld.

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Have you thought of making a hidden winch design like baddad or boostwerks? Helps approach and cooling.. I want to make one similar to both, but the pillow bearing is a pretty cool feature and not cheap on its own in steering brace with one. 400bucks is not a cool feature tho lmao

Not really, I was thinking about seeing if the boostwerks brace is back in stock.. i think I could sink the winch into the grill by 4 maybe 6" and improve approach angle some.

I've been debating a 231231 doubler.
Thats 7.4low range. But I think my long arms will get in the way of longer front drive line.

A under drive box stuffed with 231 planetary would reduce length of 231 doubler but still be 5-7" longer overall.

Black box on a 205tcase might reduce length. Im just dreaming though since they won't give us anymore money

Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Half way to an atlas at that point.. but still would be an awesome upgrade! I remember Yota guy, Marlin crawler, doing some pretty rad stuff with doublers back in the day... I think passenger drop was the main reason it wouldn't mate to a jeep.. might be adapters and what not now if its even still around.



Aye, we were talking shocks a while back and you were tryna convert me to KYB.. while they seem like a decent shock, I was wanting Bilstein or better up front. But I wanted to see what they had to offer in sizes.
So I went to view some on auto zone thinking maybe I'll grab a pair for the rear if they have em on hand or close by. So I find the ones I need, and it only shows one pictured.. but at 106.99 HAS to be both right? Of course!
So I call to have em ready at the counter... and make sure I would be getting 2. Nope, $106.99 is for ONE monomax! The 5150s were only $84.99!

Even the clerk was like wtf, ya those are more expensive for some reason, this is crazy talk! I ended up going 5150 up front and some BDS NitroX˛ shocks in the rear. With leaf springs the shocks don't need to be wallet breakers was my thoughts, got 2 for the price of one Monomax.

Yes I know how to internet, the KYBs can be had on Amazon for cheaer... but more of a dice roll imo

Didn't know they were in that category as far as price for shocks. Nuts
