Project "I have lost it"

Thought I would try a build thread on the latest mods for my 4 door. It currently sits as a 4 door rubicon on built axles, long arm, and 37s.
The build starts this week.

Corp 14b rear.
Truss, disks, grizzly locker, 5.38s, and chromoly shafts.
Kingpin 60 front.
Grizzly, 5.38s, knuckles gusseted, chromoly shafts, super joints, Yukon hubs
Custom setup coil overs, triple bypass and air bumps.
14" front and 12" rear with the rear bypass being an 8" cantilever setup.
Race line beadlocks hopefully I can get them picked up this week.
And 40" Toyos.

Goal is to keep it as low as possible all while maintaining useable travel.
All of this is in preps for the hemi that I am building.

I will post pictures and info as it goes but I am not normally good with it but will try.

Do you mean the Evo Lever?

Are you going to go with high clearance fenders like Metalcloak for the up-travel?

No evo level just a cantilever. My own design. Only the bypass will be up in the frame rails. The coilover mounts similar to stock.

I will post pictures as soon as I can.

Update though...... Rear axle in and done hoping to have it driving by Xmas. Front is hanging but still a long way off.

Rear suspension is at about a 4" lift equivalent.
5" up travel and 12.5" of vertical wheel travel at axle.

Because I had all of the parts left over from other projects. What else am I going to use 8" stroke triple bypass shocks for?
It will actually work better because the entire weight is vertical on the coilovers and just the bypass mounted cantilever. Less stress on the cantilever to hold up the jeep as well as control the suspension.

On your photobucket account, when you click on a picture, on the right hand side is a column for direct linking the image. Click on the "IMG" option and it will automatically copy the location so then you go to the thread and "Ctrl V" which will show a website link but once you click submit post, it will turn that link into the image. Ie., when I click the IMG option for the picture of your axleand paste the link to the thread, the link looks like " but once I click submit, it turns into:



BTW, who's truss is that on that 14b?

Thank you I will try that when I get a min.

As for the truss and all other brackets they are mine. I build everything in house.

Here's mine with 4" lift, lots of metal removed. I just kept grinding out the wheel wells and Rock rails until nothing was touching during wheeling). Those are 40" Xterrain Procomps. It sits low for having 40's.

Yep that's my goal. Only a little bit of cutting for full stuff. The rear axle is pushed back about 1" from where it was. So it clears the rockers fine.

What is your overall height to the top? I am trying to stay below 79-80" as I have an 82" garage limitation.

At pushing the rear axle back 1", I think your gonna have to take a bit off the rear of the rear wheel well. I took quite a bit off of the entire radius of the wheel well. If you notice I took the radius all the way up to the fender body line on upper portion of the rear wheel well. Like I say, I just kept testing on the trail (nearby), crossing it up, marking it, and grinding until nothing hit.

As far as height, if I remember right, I think it was at the most 76" or 78". I know it fits in a standard garage that typically found in just about any house for I've had mine in several different garages sometimes, not all, having to push up on the hanging down garage door just a small amount, but I think that was because their garage door spring or adjustment was lacking or off.

Ya that's the plan. Take a little more out back and it should be good. My other rig is an lj on 40s and riding a 2-3" over stock lift. Needless to say lots of trimming.

I would love to be 76-78 for the stuff we have around here.
Thanks for the input!!
