Progress Pics

No front axle


New axle in place with tie-rod on in temp. location.

Pinion angled down (just sitting there) is why the tires are out like that. Also no load on springs they are only 1.5" springs so its not NEARLY that high!


Rear Axle ready to go under tomorrow to get measurements, and weld on the perches this weekend.

Re: Progress Pics

I don't really have any pics of the Atlas 2 install but here you can kinda see it! Atlas 2 installed with 1" BL, stock skid, and clocked all the way.. No cutting required to "fit it" but probably for shift levers. Which are not bolted on yet.

Re: Progress Pics

I'm jealous. Looks great, just wish I the money to do more on my Jeep. Good luck with the rest of it.

Re: Progress Pics

Thanks! Didn't get much progress today - ground the front axle spring pads (cast into housing) slightly so they would line up perfectly! And now they do, so front axle is in awaiting correct u-bolts. But is under jeep, bolted in with some I had on hand.

I got misc. parts today for other things new belt, dremel parts, etc.. hopefuly get the 14b under tomorrow so I can order driveshafts!
