    Going Belly up so I had to tuck the T-Case up in. And since it is now clocked flat and YJs are driver drop and my D300 is passenger the floor wont allow for the D300 to clear so I "clearanced" it.

    Tuck that T-Case up there. No more low hanging T-Case/Skidplate


    The Plans -

    Ditch the rusted out front clip - Done
    Install Electric Fan - Done
    Get rid of NP231 - done
    Install D300 - Sorta Done
    Make Flat Bottom "Belly Up" Skid - Nowhere near done
    Detube then Retube High Pinion D44 to passenger drop
    Keep rear 44
    Keep Front SOA
    Rear is gonna be a tri-link with coils
    Stretch rear 7 or 8 inches, somewhere around 100-103"
    Cut the rear of the tub off
    Start roll cage
    Bigger Tires

    I was thinking about going full width with a rear 9in, but I dont like how low the pinion is.

      Your a bigger redneck than me. I like that. I loved taking the sawzall to my tub for the np435/205 to fit. Too bad your YJ grill is so fawked up, it'd be sweet to hang in the garage for wall decorations! You get a pass front 44 yet?

        The YJ grill is hanging in the garage.

              Sweet.

              Nice job joe.

              Whats your plans for the shifters? I'd love to do a dana 300 swap on my YJ. How easy was the cj front end swap as well?

                I had to cut the grill to fit over my steering box. If you have a 1 or 2in body lift it should be easier. I'm trying to keep my COG low so I didn't want a body lift.

                The shifters, I'm going twin stick. If you go thru the hassle of a D300 you gotta twin stick it to finish it off. I am also doing front/rear cutting brakes. Probably do line locks because theyre cheap and really easy to install. My bro has a line lock on his Dakota and it was'nt bad at all to install.

                  Will the twin sticks work if the dana is flipped? I thought you needed a flip kit to place the shifters back on top?

                  If it will thats great news since the twin sticks cost much less than that flip kit.

                    I'm keeping the D300 passenger drop. If you flip it then you hafta relocate te shift rails then you can twin stick it.

                        Progress is going slow this weekend. Too cold. I'll post pics tonight. Hoping to have the tranny X-Member in today. Then I can start on my skid plate.

                          I'm making a crossmember/skidplate. I started on it today. I got the crosmmember made and bolted in. I am doing horizontal bolts so I wont have to worry about them getting all mangled on rocks. I used a piece of C channel that I still gotta do a little bit of trimmin on. this way if I come down on a rock hard I dont have to worry about movinh my t-case. The skid plate still runs under the frame for more upward support.

                          You can see in the pic, I even recessed the bolts to the tranny mount. Then I gotta make them there own little skid plate.

                          The crossmember outside of the Jeep. I still gotta run some supports then cover it with 3/16 steel plate. I'm also gonna put a plate on the outside of the frame too. Give some extra support and make the skid plate bolts double sheer.

                            I still need to finish cutting out the floor and move the gas tank. That is just the very basic start of my cage. Needs a lot more tube. I am gonna cut up my hard top to close in the cab. The cage is gonna go thru the top so the cage is tied in properly. Then I am doing little removeable fenders and mud flapsfor the rear to keep it street legal.

                              The back of my frame was rotted so instead of patching it I just cut it off. Still, LOTS more to do to the cage, I wanna put an X behind the seats and do the front half. I still need to move the rear axle back 6-8inched dunno numbers yet. I think I am gonna do 101". Got my heims, but with Holidays, I havent been able to get to a steel shop. The days I'm off theyre closed. Front axle still needs built also.
