SOA, and 44 swap finished

I passed up a weekend wheeling, cause I didn't feel that my Jeep would safely make it, but now it is fine tuned, nothing binds, everything stops, and everything steers..
Over the last 6 months, I got a waggie 44 frontend, converted it to 5 lug (thanks for your help Jeepgod), Hi-steering, Detroited, and 4.56. I got a scout 44 rear, spooled it and geared it 4.56. then I did a spring over axle. It all cam together over the last 3 weekends. I put in the scout rear (thanks Elusive) in one weekend, then geared the front the next, then put the front in last weekend, and finished the stupid stuff this weekend. The steering bound up on the springs, so I had to make .5" spacers to go underneath the steering arms. The front driveshaft was too long, so I had it cut down, and a new yoke put in. for 80.00. Torched the track bar brackets, as it was impeding steering motion to the left, and torched the skidpate, as the driveshaft hit it on full travel.

Re: SOA, and 44 swap finished

It looks an awful lot like a TJ, (same cage, same flares,) only, no coils?

Look again at the flares.. the cage is the same basic design.

Re: SOA, and 44 swap finished

I drove about 500 miles with soa in the rear, and 4"sua front, and I really noticed it alot... now that I have soa in the front, it sways alot, and takes up the weight of the rear, I don't notice it nearly as much.. It is about as bad as my lockright. I don't know how I'll like it in the snow of pa.. I'll be sliding all over the road.. I'm gonna have to find a place that sells tire chains for 35x 12.5x15.
Any ideas?

Looks good, I think 4wp sells chains for big tires. What size tires are you running?
