got up early this am and got rid of some dead weight



after drilling and taping the disc brackets for the pistons I put on the disc brakes (thanks for the brackets Kelly)
and did all the finish welding on the rear truss



and got my lower four link mapped out and welded in the lower control arm brackets



with the lower control arm brackets parallel to the ground and the upper brackets on the the truss i ended up with 9.5in of separation.  between uppers and lowers.

All I have left for the rear axle is to shave the diff and put in the vertical limits shave kit I have, clean up the diff cover put on the upper control arm brackets and paint!  shouldn't take more then an hour or two?  LOL

Well got some stuff done tonight, went to the shop and decided to use a big grinder with 7in cut off wheel and a normal grinder with a 4in disc for details, and then  a grinding disc to get a good fit...  I have done this with sawzalls before and i Liked this much better.  So I got my diff cover welded together and put it in place



marked my cut lines and went to town with the grinder fit the new heavy outer ring heated up the cast and welded it in...



after two hours of heating and welding heating and welding I ended up with this





and this





yes those are flip flop lines in the dirt on my feet... yea i know im an idiot...


and after it was all said and done wrapped it up in my welding blanket and put it to sleep for the night!

I took the origional chassis I cut up at the begining of this project into recycling today and it got me 104 bucks for 1500lbs of scrap... best I can figure that is about 1100lbs more than the chassis I am building...

Got a couple of hours in the shop tonight got the front truss and skid all done and got the lower control arm brackets tacked in...  Now I can finish the lower chassis and get the control arms in.  Sorry for the crappy pics, guess I should clean the pocket lint off my phone, and maybe open the shop door and let some smoke out. 

Skid



truss



the skid for the diff



brackets



got the diff all cleaned up

The lower frame rail cut and welded in with the rear cross member and lower link brackets.



Tested roll cage height with the wide load seat.



picked a b pillar pitch and got them welded in...

thanks yeller... 

Got a little work done last night, got the chassis in place and  started on the rear wheel wells.  got them tacked in and the top rail bent up.   I hope to have it notched and welded in today, and would like to get most of the rear four link stuff welded in.



I definatly like how its looking, it will have a 19 inch belly height and 70ish inch roof line

I had the day off today and got to play for a bit in the shop.  cycled the four link and got it welded up and mounted the shocks.  Next I will get the motor mounts in and start on the front and get the cage to take shape.. 





The four link ended up exactly like I hoped with lowers parallel to the ground at ride height and uppers going uphill.  Ended up with a 101.8 anti-squat number... I also got lucky I thought I had plenty of room for my fuel cell and after the shocks were welded in went to test it and it was snug but a good fit!

I got  a little more done on the jeep... it took forever but I finally got it how i like it...

put together the front of the cab and the rear roll cage and tied it in down to the body  I just set the windshield on there and the hood just to get an idea of how it will look  I need to cut the bottom off the windshield and build a cowl still



and a pic from the rear
