    Ubolts. Perches. Plates. And crossmember kit. The tubing is super heavy duty! More so than the one ton steering kit. Woah!

    Only thing I see with this is that there's no cut off valve for the pressure feed. If you remove your air feed before you've drained the tank you're gonna make a mess.

    Barnes is never a disappointment when it comes to tubing. I've ran it for years and it's stout!. :beer:

    You're about at a good status to have a big Rastafarian ho-down. I'm totally coming over.

    honestly just need to clean the tape scum off the heads, install the new pickup oring (with lube packing), put the oil pan back on with a new gasket, then drill the back of the trans (clock the np231) and order the bh adapter from novak (with t/o bearing and clutch kit) and im ready for a huge bolt on party! *some welding may apply* lol

    I forgot the way to your house. I blame it on the Alaskan thunderfuck. What do we need to accomplish?

    Why not just use a clocking ring for the 231? You are still using the ax15 aren't you?

    Having trouble finding a place selling one. Found one place that said it was but included other tcase bolt patterns that it fit. turned out the guy was wrong after demanding measurements. found another and they wanted 200+ bones for a piece of metal... Id rather drill the back of the ax15 for the price of electricity for the drill.

    Second star on the right! ummm... a Byramid!!!!

    So tomorrow is the beginning. Well I forgot to grab new spring hanger bolts. And in the move I lost the receipt out of the log/receipt book for the Jeep. Well feeling lazy I didn't want to end my work day or commingle tomorrow with taking off the wheels, lower the frame onto stands then jack up the axle. Lazy, did I say that? Lol. Calling up the engineer in me I figured out how get the bolt out without using the jack. #hammersareawesome

    Helped a friend with redoing their shock mounts with new hardware then we jumped on this frame. Got all the poly bushings in, but discovered that he main eye bushings didn't have the right bushings in them. Had the smaller ones and the four bigger ones were in some of the small ones. So out came the bushings then back in went them. Got the leafs bolted on and then rested on the axles and got the front axle bolted up with three of the ubolts. The cast perch gunna have to notch the webbing and then wallow out the holes on the plate on the drill press. At some point anyways. Went to do the rear and noticed the perches were not just a half inch off like the front but 14 inches off. So freaked out but the. Realized only the front of the ford trucks had the same perch span as the YJ. So d60 back out from under and gotta cut the perches off tonight or tomorrow at lunch. Then after lunch gunna try and get this sucker on the rear axle. Then all ready for brakes and hubs and wheels!

    Rather than waiting till tomorrow took advantage of the wifey eating out with other womenfolk and cut/grinded those perches off. All ready to locate the axle and mark the perches final position. Won't be able to tack weld until the Powertrain is in place and I can set my pinion angle.

    Anyone know off hand the exact perch span on rear of YJ? I know the front is 30.5.

    Got the back axle in. Looks like the perches go perfectly with just enough room for the ubolts to fit with the stock shock mounts. May take a little finagle when comes time to burn them in, but I'm sure it will be fine and dandy.
