soo my axles will be going up for sale of anyone wants them...they have the axle truss...pretty much fresh rebuild on them...one run to the rubicon...stock gearing..either 3.90s or 4.10's not sure...either way the rear is welded..front is open...
the front has a MC rebuild kit on it..with the MC gusset kit and a TG diff cover....
all welded nicely and clean.. both axles will be torn off soon...if you are intrested let me know..

Cleaned up the axles from all hardware.. thats a t100 axle and a fj80 hp... im debating the 3link at this point.. due to cheapness if running leafs.. and to much money tied up in other projects... ill probably just make the leafs work for now.. and then link it later... what do u guys think of the perch location on the front... that is stock width for a mini... im gonna try running it like that... but i will notch perches and make them sit as low as possible.... ill probbaly have to run a plate like a stock axle.. but that shouldnt be a problem..

blahhhhhhhhhhh

The fj80 front is a great idea.

If you take your time, you can notch the housing to drop the perches even lower...

The above pics are not from my rig, but if I did another FJ80 axle that is how I would do it. Your other option is what I did, for the drivers side I used this

Correct, low ride height. It is also a better way to accurately gauge your lift, If you use 4" springs and normal drop hangers, you have more like a 6-7" lift. By frenching in every possible bracket then all of your lift comes from your spring.

that big gaping hole for the tail light and how it cracks there is one reason I filled in the stock location and used some LED's down in the area below the hatch.

Haha yeah i havent even begun to adress the prettyness of this truck.. I am redoing the hack fab i did in a hurry to get to mcr12 and finishing up some stuff as i do the new axles.. My hellfire knuckles arrive today so I'm stoked!! I needed to do something different then working on my other truck so i decided to work on this.. It didnt take long to get it under and read to weld the perches on.. Just need a longer welding cord..



Thanks for sharing your builds!
your welcome.. Ill even do a write up on my other truck if some one wants to see it..

I was reading about that.. should i?

blahhhhh

from my experience i would definitely run a pressure regulator to keep it below 4-5 PSI max. when i put the weber on my 2wd without a regulator the pump had enough pressure to push the valve open in the float bowl and then would dump that fuel strait down the barrel, ran super rich and inconsistent.

I personally am taking the weber off and going back to a stock carb., i have never got mine to run quite right.
