rear swap Part 2

Here are some more pics of the rear swap. All i have left is figure out which locking hubs to use and driveshafts. I am thinking of using the ford factory hubs since they are a dime a dozen. I have the rear driveshaft picked out, i just have to cut some of the spines off and install the ujoints. The front driveshaft i am just going to have it cut down. Well here you go.

These are explorer rears disk brakes. I bought them as a kit. If anyone has the explorer rear disks what did you use for e-brake cables.


We welded a plate on the orginal spring perch and used that for holding the brake lines.


Here are the brake lines


Here is the brake block i put it on the back of the rear so it is protect by the gastank and the rear.


Here is the 9in. I really couldnt get a good shot of it up close.





Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: rear swap Part 2

looks good,
i've made some little brackets to adapt the factory E-brake cables. BUT since then i found that newer Grand Cherokee E-brake cable are a direct swap onto a YJ, never tried them on CJ[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
