Well I decided to push the rear end back a bit and that caused a bit of a problem with the 39" rubbers so here was my cure. I had to take a little off the bottom of the fuel door but what the heck why not. The new departure angle is great but I still have to go try it out in the rocks and see what I think.

Turned the leaf springs around front to back :mrgreen: :rotfl:

Pretty simple. All i had to do was find some bushings that fit right and get a new driveshaft made. But of course while I was at it I used a 14 bolt instead that I shaved and welded up :thumb:

How did the shaving go? Its on my "To Do" list and I'm trying to decide how far to take it.

Yeah as far as the 13 bolt thing goes, more power too and its pretty cool but in my book its way TOO much work for very little gain..... But anyway I ground mine down to withen a 1/4" of the hole for the bottom bolt. Took off around a 1" I would say. Nothing to hang up on down there anymore.

I used the sawzall on 3 straight cuts then cleaned em all up with the air grinder and a 8" disc. Took maybee an hour and it was well worth it. for each straight cut that your going to make start it with a hack saw your blade doesn't wander then have at it with the sawzall is my advice. And you can alwyas take more off but you can add more so don't go buck wild with the sawzall or you will end up with a 13 bolt :mrgreen:
