The rear of the jeep will need work. I already wanted to stretch the rear more. I have a fuel cell to put in now. So i need to make new links move my shock towers back and do a full comp cut.


And Id also ditch the steering box and go to full hydro and getting chromos. I want to dove nose the front some this winter also. With doing all of the above mods I think I can still lower my suspension a few inches like i wanted to already. Whats your guys thoughts?

He offered to sell me the tires and wheels, they are all brand new. But wont separate the wheels. Really not a fan of the wheels at all but I can get some blanks and make my own centers

Me? There isn't one bracket, mount, tab bought on my jeep. If you look back a few pages, it shows some of the styles Iv designed and cut out. I also so xj frame stiffeners beadlocks and wheel centers. If you called ak steel for something youd have to bring in a template or dxf or at least a detailed drawing. Then they charge you at least $40 for me to trace or draw it. then add a charge for every single pierce the table makes and hourly rate and material. The table does a pretty nice job though. Deffinatly a perc

Moving the axle back more and trimming more sheet metal. Also got some 35 spline chromo outers and an arb for the front. Just need a set of drive flanges now and I'm going to full hydro. Just looking for who has the the best deal.

The bead locks IV been making are 1/4". All he centers I make are 3/8's except one set the guy wanted 5/16's.

Big up date

So IV been working on my LS motor. The plans to put a 5.3 in the jeep. Got a 2001 5.3/4L60E/ and a driver side drop 241. Motor came with a full wiring harness and computer also.

I tore down the motor due to the PO not having an intake on it for a year and left the motor outside under a tarp. Pulled the heads found a little surface rust on the cylinders and a build up of crap on the pistons. So decided the best bet was just to tear it all down. I got the whole combo for $250 plus $50 for the tcase so I think is worth rebuilding instead of finding another motor and not know what's going on inside of it either. All the bearings look great cams good cranks nice. The cylinders still have the cross hatching also.

Got the block pistons and crank out to ac machine Wednesday. He's honing the block then hot tanking and installing new cam bearings. He's going to polish the crank and hot tank the pistons also. I'm going to take the heads to him Monday to get a valve job and also tank them.

If anythings wrong with the pistons that he finds ill order some 4.8 flat top pistons or the block can't just be honed then I'll have him bore it a little and buy new pistons. He doesn't think either will be needed though. Plans just to have a fresh stock 5.3 all the cams for them are pretty much for high HP and I'm not looking for that. I'm more interested in low end. So I think I'll just get a higher stall torque converter. I hear that's the best mod for better low end since this motors make power around 3500-3800 rpm.

My question do you guys think I should run the 4l60e or go to a th400? When they pulled the Trans they broke the electrical part for the shifter. The plastics all broken and also the wires are broken. I'm sure I can find another one to bolt on pretty easy. I read that the 4L60E has a lower 1st gear. But I also hear they aren't as strong as a th400 and the th400 cost a lot less to build. I won't be DDing this rig haha so don't really care about OD. I'll be sending my ls harness to the 12 volt guy to mod to make it a stand alone also and he will tune the computer.

Alright I'll keep that in mind. I don't have any plans to go to Fairbanks anytime soon but I'll keep it in mind. Pm me what youd like for it. Also is that 205 a drive drop or passenger?

Stick with the 4L60E first gear is lower, its lighter , takes alot less power to turn, shorter over all, and bolts up to the proper t-case you already have.

It also cost around $2000 to get a mild build. I could get a th400 for a good deal and use the extra money to get an atlas or something later on. I really don't think I want a 205 I could do a doubler a little cheaper but they are heavy and long. I don't know what to do. I don't care if I use the parts I already have really. The Trans came in the deal I don't know it's condition inside. I was told it was good though. The np241 I got from a member on here for $50 so Im pretty sure I can get the money back out of it if I need to. I think I can build my own th400 I don't know about a 4l60. I need to look into other tcase options fora driver side drop on a th400.

if you do aTH400 getting a drivers drop tcase is not an issue they have the same spline count as the 4L80E AND they put TH400's in Ifs trucks so you can find them easly very common I have 2 or 3 at the house
