Re: Steel Blue Build

I'm a little slow, explain what the pic is. Looks like something broke? Pinion looks a bit high. Yep, the pinion is high because the truss is bent. I used the truss that was with the 8.8 swap kit for a TJ, and just added s bracket for the upper control arms. It wasn't designed for that and the top ...

Re: beadlocks

I think they might be geared more toward circle track guys. Tires are going to stick out a ways with 4" of BS. Ring looks a bit thin. Don't know anything about them though.

Re: 98 TJ Frame Swap

They would probably work. Best option is to flex everything out and then order the specific length you need.

Re: Steel Blue Build

And I can edit. One thing to think about is that depending on how much you comp cut, you are going to be cutting into the tailgate reinforcement, at least the lower one. This can make the tailgate bend the tub if you have it opened a bunch, or put any weight on it. Just something to think about when...

Re: Steel Blue Build

Put a level on the highest spot in the wheel well to get a straight line to the back of the tub. Then figure out what point at the bottom of the back of the tub you are cutting to and draw some lines to make them meet. Might take a time or two to get it right. Put some painters tape down first. Oka...

Re: Steel Blue Build

When I comp cut mine I think I put tape down and drew some lines while taking some measurements to get them about the same. Its been a long time so that part is fuzzy. I used a grinder and cutoff wheel and took my time. With that said did you push your rear axle back? A cleaner look would be some st...

Re: balance beads in tire..

Not sure you will have much luck with asking a tire place to balance them using pellets. You can try adding more but my experience with Interco tires is they are notoriously difficult to balance. Beads or regular weights.

Re: Steel Blue Build

A couple of things. 1. Are you sure on your unsprung weights? 2. How are you estimating CG? 3. Are you sure you are measuring your upper axle end distance apart correctly? Same with your lower frame side? (Pretty sure I measured mine from center of joint to center of joint then took half that. So yo...

Re: Thanksgiving Weekend

Depending on when you plan to link it I'd probably try to put a traction bar in even if its a temp solution. It should help on the driveshaft issue. Not much help in the geometry department, I put mine basically where I wanted and then plugged my numbers into the 4 link calculator when I was done. I...

I do not.
Relatively cheap and easy to help fix the wheel hop and stop destroying driveshafts.
