Axles are all mounted up. Still have to make a tie rod and Track bar. The front coil spring mounts are made. The Control arms are both made with Johnny Joints and 2"x.25 wall drill pipe. Custom Crossmember. So far I/we have made all the parts except I bought some Coil spring retaining plates.

Honestly, I am not sure the lift size. It is kinda a "lets see how it goes" type of thing. Since I am having to make a few things that involve spring mounts I do not know what all lift I will need to make it level. I will prob stay close to where the rear is sitting now.

I have not had too much time to work on this b/c I'm building a mud truck too, but I got some welding done on my control arms. Installed my Front D44 locker and 5.13 gears. Also, Started the rear gear install.

First we built this rear bumper.

1989 Cherokee - Page 2 20140424_143937_zpsfbdab453

Then about a week later I cut the Ford Radius arm I built.

1989 Cherokee - Page 2 20140425_112135_zps0d08b5bb

Set it up and started putting it back together. This was done the day before I had to go on a ride.

We went and played some this weekend. I had a good time. The wristed radius arm did great. I had to cut more of my body away on the second day b/c my tires were hitting still. I will be cutting more soon.
