Now there is a rock crawler.

 

Kind of like the old 1951 Willys I used to own. 350 CID Chey 4 bolt mains with a 350 Turbo transmission.

Well be doing links on dodge and jeep soon. My mind get carried away at times. Though ive started simplify track bar ideas in my head.

Well get to work on dodge axle mount for track bar. The factory track bar is od sized mount.  Like 1 3/4 wide on axle end. Im assuming the jeep shares the same size bushing. Well be bumping it to a standerd 2" wide bushing.

The tie rod end on track bar will be scrapped to

Good. Same as spool. 

My current dana 35 is welded the same. I drive it around town alittle but mostly on dirt. Itl definitely wear the tires out if on the pavent alot.

Front axle pops alittle because ive got a broken ujoint cap and because itl load the right tire then transfer to left tire. Ive been holding off on fixing it because i also have a front axle im putting in it that runs bigger u joints. But i may have to just fix it since im taking so long on rear axle. Im in the middle of plumbing disc brakes on it

Crap. I need to do motor mounts to

These are ruff stuff covers. Ill be putting one on dodge one of these years. Would be cool to have a steering stabalizer anchored to cover, even though stabalizers arent needed.

 

Flanges are 1/2" and rest is 3/8"
