Those are some nice looking mount plates. What are you doing for the front suspension?

Ah ok. Damn those radius arms look nice. I will need new ones if i lift my bronco cause it turns out one of my arm bars is bent out ward go figure. It is bowed slightly where the other is straight. Which side they are escapes my mind right now but next time i crawl under there i can get a picture.

2 1.25" heims so I can get the radius arm brackets welded and get the axle to powder coating

These things are huge!

I will be ordering the other 6 heims and the 2" .25 wall DOM for the radius arms next week. Then it is time to get the roller together

Looks good. Looks like an over sized ratchet in that last pic. LOL

Well technically the joints in the picture are Johnny Joints, similar the beefy TREs.

These are different, no rubber in them and alot more articulation.


This is exactly what I am doing right down to the frame side mounts.

Who's Johnny, and why did he have a joint named after him? Sorry couldn't resist. Looks good, wish I had welding skills.

Hey jim all you need is 3 car batteries, a wool blanket, some cable, some long jumper cables, and a coat hanger. I watched a video where these guys linked 3 batteries together to weld some steering part for a jeep so they could limp it out of their camp site and get home.

Well today was pretty much a waste of time.
Stripped down the front axle and found a crack in the center section where the long side tube goes in.
Click the image to open in full size.

So now not only did I waste a few hours I need to buy new axles.
I wanted to upgrade anyhow but couldn't justify it when I had 2 good axles already.

I did get the radius arm mounts welded up and ready for the axle.

***EDIT***
Found a set of 99 Stupid Duty axles with calipers and discs for $500 for the pair.
Picking them up next weekend.

Unfortunately this throws my whole time table off.
Probably setting me a month behind since this money was supposed to go to primer not axles.
