Posting up some more work. Got quite a bit done. Replaced the steering box with Pat's former box. We heard some chattering coming from the front end so I decided to take the whole thing apart to see if anything was glaringly obvious.

First things first checked the rear diff and added a little fluid to top her off.



After we got to Maxx's we started on replacing the steering box. First thing used a pair of channel locks to remove the bolt under the drop pitman arm. This is a HUGE bitch the first time you do it but since we just replaced mine with the beefier Clayton's arm it popped off rather easily compared to the stock one.



Dropping the drop pitman arm.



Dropped half the KOR steering brace to allow for the bottom of the steering box to move, another mod I highly recommend to help to anyone's jeep.



Using a 1/2 on the steering box to remove the shaft.



Removing the lines in this pic. Be sure to have a cup or container to catch all the fluid that will pour out.



We used an 18mm to pop off the 3 bolts on the side of the steering box.



We actually sheered one of the bolts. Bah.



The old next to the older.



You can see the bolt still sitting in the box.



POS bolt next to the reusable ones.



New box going in!



Tightening the brace back up for support.



Tightening the lines down



And pitman arm.



Topping off fluids.

]

Victory drink!



Back to work. Time for some front end work. Removing the trac bar.



Drilling out the adjustable mount to make room for some beefier bolts.



Checked the trac bar out and it looked good. Bolted it back up.



Pulled the old stock cover off and put the new Solid diff on.



PLENTY of rtv.



And that guy is in.



Took off/apart the tires, hub assembly, wheel spacers, calipers, axle shafts, etc to try to find the grinding. Checked out the wheel bearings and u joints, nothing.



So of course we took the other side apart as well.



More removal.



And reassembled.



Well whatever we did worked because its quiet now and drives great.



Trimming some more to make the 4x4 fit.



More trimming to help fit the rockers.



Overall a good day Very Happy

Took the jeep over to a new friends place along with Pat's jeep. Got a chance to move up on Pat's trailer. Still needs some more trimming and grinding but overall I was happy with it.





Need to get those ACOS so we can fix this problem



Now some backing onto the trailor shots.









And Pat's jeep laughing at mine





Should flex out well when everything gets finished up.

This Easter weekend we got a chance with the limited time to work on the sliders some more. Here's what we got done.

Got the cutting disk out and made a little more room for the sliders to fit up nice and snug.



Mmm...snug.



Marking where I'll be cutting to fit the legs.



And the spots cut out Smile



Grabbed some 2x2 box tubing and cut out 3 9.5" legs for the support of the rockers.



Measuring up the 1.75 dom tubing for cutting.



Dog getting in the way of bending, move Cody!



And bending!



A shot of the degree finder to get an even level bend.



Getting an idea from Maxx's, they look good.



Cutting and grinding action.



Sizing up the tubage.



Brackets for the legs cut out and sanded.



And we are ready to tack and weld.



Tacking up.



Welding up the slider.



Sexy shot #1.



Sexy shot #2.



Master chief jr. in the works Wink



Ready to tac the legs up to the brackets with the slider in place.



Another shot of the cuts.



Bracket and legs being slipped into place.



Preview of what it could turn out like.



And the legs and brackets getting tac'd to the sliders.



Ran out of time thanx to Easter but we'll continue some more work probably after Ice Breakers. Coming along smoothly though.
