D's YJ

Rig

94 - 95 YJ
Front Axle - Dana 30 w/ ARB and 30 spline shafts
Rear Axle - Dana 44 w/ ARB and 35 spline shafts
4 liter
ax 15
np 231
Pretty much a regular YJ with a custom built Dana 44 rear

Plans

99" - 100" Wheel Base
3 link front
4 link rear
14" Coilovers
Steering
Bumps
Stretched Tank
Corners
Tube Fenders


Started by removing the gas tank, rear axle and spring hangers. You can see the corners have a 4" - 5" stretch to them.



Figured the general location for rear 4 link frame brackets and tacked them on. They are there, just not too easy to see.



Tacked the truss on the rear a few degrees forward.



Found the general location using the adjustable mock up links I made. The new tank was put in to determine the full amout we could push the axle back.



Axle back out for welding. You can see the coilover brackets on the back of the axle.



Links all TIGed up. Uppers are 1.75" 120 DOM and lowers are 2" 250 DOM. Uppers got a ground notch and single pass. Lowers were ground with a root and outter pass.



The frame got a little treatment to fit the coilovers with a jeep width axle. One of the rear crossmembers was removed and a new one was added. The new one also serves as the sway bar tube. The shock towers go all the way through the frame. They will also be the cage tie in point, which is not done yet.

Sitting on it's own weight.





Rear sway bar links, bump stops and limit straps are next.

Re: D's YJ

That chair looks like it's for a Smurf in the pic next to the tire lol. Nice work. Is that the YJ I've seen out front when I pull into work?

Re: D's YJ

The only issue I have is all this nice work was done on a j**p....


It's a awesome build if you haven't seen it everyone... Seems like everytime I look at it I find something else... The cut on the frame for the coilovers alone keeps
Me going back to look at it...

Nice job Josh.....looking forward to seeing it driving... And maybe even on a trail or two!!!!

(Ya knew I was gonna flick ya sh*t didn't you???)

Keep up the good work!!

Re: D's YJ

Thanks. It's all finished and home with the owner. I think he's getting it all repainted.
