Ive got 5.5" clayton springs in it now but Im thinking it needs 3.5"s or 4"s
Dang, Creepy Crawlers on H2's look awesome!
I've also got a set of 4.5" RE springs that are broken in and would probably lower yours down a little. I'm wanting to drop to 2" OME springs.
Finally got to take out the jeep out for a little test run. Everything clears good. Nothing is binding. It's ready to wheel!
So it's been a while since I posted any updates. Apparently the last time I flopped it the body mounts on the driver side pushed through the tub. They were pretty rusty from my younger, dumber days of burying the poor thing in mudholes. Didn't notice it until I got on the rocker hard one day and the body started to come off.
I've been piling up parts for a while and It's time for them to come together. Drove up to asheville and picked up a new tub yesterday.
I have a np435 with AA 231 adapter that I imagine will be much easier to install from the top. The current track bar mount hits the diff cover when it gets flexy so Im ditching the clayton setup and going with 7/8 heims and brackets from ruffstuff. The frame is also bent pretty bad so Ive got to get it to the body shop to get lined back up before I get started.
Nice work sir....
2 years later... Starting to make some progress.
Boatsiding the new tub:
Sold the maxxis and bought ltbs:
Had the tub sandblasted. Monstaliner on the inside, Transtar undercoat on bottom.
Started bending tube
I didn't have enough headroom so I re-did the back section
That's where it is today. Hopefully get some time this weekend to add the last few pieces and start triangulating. And the seats will not be mounted to angle steel when it's finished either, just for mock up.
Looking good. I've got that brand new spare for sale if you want it.
Hopefully the weather will be kind to me and I can finally start putting this pile of shit back together. @palmetto zuk @72Rockcruiser who's ready?
lets do it
@Dirt Mcgert drive your ass up here and hang out
wish I could spend wrenching time....club volleyball season starts this weekend...my next 16 weekends are shot.
I love my daughter...but I hate this shit.
Good day. Got the body in place with no big problems. We were smart. Got about 30 min of work done first then talked shit for the next 2 hours.
Look at this fagit
I had a wedding to go to last weekend
Got the drivers side body mounts tacked on. I think I got these from Genright.
Thanks for the motivation @XJsavage @ghost @Jody Treadway
