    Well the build has been delayed. I'm still working on it but hit a wall with link length and trying to get it together. And getting ready to do an auto trans swap

    Re: 1 ton MJ build.

    Well I've hit the bottom of the motivation barrel. I'm stuck between selling her or having to set out a donation jar to get it trail worthy. I've been trying to come up with the $600+ for just the front links. I still need drive shafts and a new tcase

    Build your own links, Used TC's are cheap.

    1 ton MJ build.

    I'm not putting a used case in it. It's either getting a wide chain 6 pinion 231 (built with parts I currently have) or a 4spd atlas. And tube inserts for 1.25 heims ain't cheap.

    Funds got cut off and unless someone wants to donate everything I need to get it trail worthy and a place to store/work on it, it has to go.

    I don't know what you do for a living, or how much available time you have, but have you thought of a part time job till the project is finished?

    Re: 1 ton MJ build.

    If I could find a place I could work without using my arm or standing/walking for ant length of time I would. But my biggest issue with the build is all the dumb **** that keeps popping up while working on it

    Re: 1 ton MJ build.

    Well I had a little bit of fun with the MJ yesterday. Plans keep changing. I kno a handful of people don't want me to do it but I'm thinking I'm going to bob the bed. Also seriously thinking of linking the rear. But the saddest part is the fact I did post it for sale. If I get my asking price I'll let it go.





    Debating pulling the trans out of this zj and swapping out my ax15.
