Re: Tanner\'s CJ5 SOA Conversion...

I know...that day's going to hurt. I ramped it on the front, no rubbing there or the back. But I didn't get carried away with it. Amazing flex though for what's on it.

Looks good, but watch that front shackle angle. Looks rather verticle to me in the picture. you may find you invert shackles more often than you want.

Re: Tanner\'s CJ5 SOA Conversion...

I like the jeep.... reminds me of my CJ5 when I first got it. Maybe I should have went SOA instead of lift springs. Makes me wish I never painted it blue.....

LOOKING GOOD!!

btw.... how did you manage to get double shocks on the front? I've wanted to double up on mine for a while, but can't seem to find anybody that has the shock hoops for a CJ5....

Re: Tanner\'s CJ5 SOA Conversion...

First of all, thanks everybody for all the replies. I appreciate all the comments. I need to backup my promise by posting more pics...i'll get to it this week.

I'll take specific pics on how this was done. It's nothing incredibly difficult. It'll be a lot easier to see in the pics than it will be me trying to put it in words. I'll get them posted either tonight or tomorrow.

Re:Tanner\'s CJ5 SOA Convers... (Tons of New pics!)

Sorry for the delay in getting these out. FYI Photobucket.com is the place to visit if you're wanting to upload pics. Easy as spit! Upload, copy and past the code into this string...nothing to it.

Here's the Shock setup that's on the front axels.
Overview

Top Bracket

Bottom Bracket


Right Side Before/After (both pictures shown with old exhaust. I put a new 2-to-1 exhaust on it, routed out the driver side, rear corner.



Back Side Before/After



Front Side Angle Before/After



Front Axel w/wo Diff Gaurd



Rear Axel w/wo Diff Gaurd (new 2-to-1 exhaust tailpipe shown on the bottom picture)



Steering Old/New



New Tires...love'm!!! (shown w/ old exhaust)


Still lots to do, but it's a total kick in the ass now! Ladies love it too!!!

Ed-
Sorry about the other weekend. I haven't had a day off since I wrote you last. Hopefully here soon I will get some time and we can go break things together.

Re:Tanner\'s CJ5 SOA Convers... (Tons of New pics!)

I understand. I've pretty much been working 7 10's for the last 3 weeks. I took off last Sunday and broke the Jeep. Luckily I had most of the parts I needed. Just sucks doing the work in the parking lot.....lol
