    If you have found a good support group for us jackstand wheelers let me know, I'm in the middle of building mine up as well lol. Just a few questions/suggestions, are you pushing the front forawrd any? It doesn't look like it but I was just wondering. Also the PSC cage, are you doing anything with the dash angle iron supports? Good luck on the build, looks good.

      The shackle reverse gave me about 2" of stretch in the front and I'm stretching the rear a total of 7" so I'll sit around 105" wheelbase.

      We'll see what the PSC cage looks like when I install everything, I might just cut the angle iron out altogether and replace it with tube all the way down to the floor. The YJ ones seem to be getting better reviews than the TJ ones are, but we'll see. I'm also going to add a bunch of extra supports all the way around the whole cage too.

            haha I'm a I didn't let the side shot load (56ghey). The idea for the cage sounds good. The cage is good but I have seen pics of a few hard rolls with it bolted to the dash, it survived but the dash and everything got pushed down.

              I've heard that about the TJ cages but I've also heard the YJ ones are built a lot better...we'll find out when I install it

                Got the front axle 50% installed over the weekend. I have to get 2 new u-bolts for the drivers side (one is too long and the other one is too skinny). I brazed the stock spring center pin hole in the driver side spring perch closed and drilled a new one 3/8" closer to the pumpkin, drilled the webbing in the bottom of the housing to snake the U-bolt through and set the drivers side. With this set up I could make a few final measurements and weld on the passenger side spring perch.

                    There are still some finishing touches that need to be done on the front like fixing the drivers side u-bolt issue and a little bit of clearancing on the drivers side spring plate, but the hard part is done. Next step: install the rear axle!

                            Brian,

                            When are the good people at 4WD Hardware going to create an employee "garage" so you can work on your stuff on your coffee breaks? Some places have a gym. Others have "relaxation rooms".

                            We just want to see this Jeep get finished up!!

                              Once you got that garage, I'll be moving over and bring all my rides...

                                you may want to yank the top off that nv 4500 prior to install and ensure the nut on the main shaft has not backed off ..... if that thing came out of a 94-98.5 diesel .... its not a matter of IF it does, its a matter of WHEN! It will not shell out the tranny .... you will just lose 5th gear .....

                                Project looks sweet!
