I finally got going on this stretch. I took alot of ass-end damage this year on the trail, so I am going to do a little thinning of this gals hips.

I purchased a Synergy Stretch this past summer but because of the change in plans to go with a buggy backhalf, I chopped it up and I am going with a one off 3-link instead.

This is what it looked like before I took my 5" cut-off wheels to it:


This is what it looked like after the main material removal:


I removed the frame three inched in back of the body mount behind the door.
The rear stretch will be 16 inches and the front will be 4 inches
115 inches when it is done.
I am going to do the rear now and do some snow wheeling and do the front with coilovers in March, along with the crawler box.

I am keeping the factory fuel tank because I want to stay smog legal so I can keep it street licensed.

The buggy backhalf will have lights and mud flaps to get from my property to the trail during the summer.

I cut the factory B-Pillar Cross-Over out and I am grafting the back half to a new B-Pillar:


The lower control arms and new LCA are in. I still have some final welding to do on the mounts:


I am using the Currie Bridge for the 3-link mount with some extra parts:


That is it for now, I am going to be working on this full time so it should move fast.

Idream of doing this to my 4 door. Cut the body and frame right behind the rear seats and tube the rear end. Custom 4 link the rear and actually bring the rear axel in closer. 16" coilovers and a cell. Till I can do this, i'll just live vicariously through you. Awsome job!
