I got great news today... It turned out that I had my spring plate upside down and was trying to use a bolt that was too big... The 1/2" bolts fit perfectly once the plate was turned.
This thing better be done by May. I have not traveled since November, and only have 1 trip to Amsterdam planned between now and next year. I'll eventually be working in Beijing, but probably not starting until June.
I want to run a 40" tire, just because... I'm partial to the 39.5 Irok because of price. However, depending upon when I finally buy tires, I may look at the new LTBs.
The front inners are moser 4340 with 4340 outers, not sure of the brand. I'm running regular spicer Ujoints. I have to save money somewhere.
I "currently" have a Currie semi-float 9" in the rear of the CJ. I had planned to keep it, and put spacers on it to increase the track width to 64". After thinking about it, I figured that I could "build" a 14bolt for not too much money and then either re-use the current rear 3rd member in the front or sell it. Either way, it should be cheaper to build a 14 bolt than to buy a 35spline 3rd member. Since the current front is a 60" wide 9/(cj outers) 31 spline hybrid bolt into a CJ SUA, I figured that the pair would be easier to sell than just the front alone.
I am frustrated that I got talked out of the 64" width that I had originally planned to run when I installed my second set of axles...
