Still have those. There are 6" (i think) YJ shackles with an xj budget boost control arm.

Didn't do anything worth pictures tonight. Just cleaned up the spots I rough cut with the torch last week. Will start boxing in the rear section of frame-rail tomorrow.

Should have heims some time by the end of this week and will start on the rear suspension/tube work.

Need to add some weight to the rear so I can remove the stands holding the front up to work up there.

EDIt: also found a crack in the frame. Passenger side directly underneath where the front spring hanger was welded. It starts in the oval-shaped hole where the 2 peices of frame "overlap" and is about an inch long. That part of the frame will be removed, but thought I'd mention it as a place to be wary of.

Got my heims on the way. I know I know why do I have to order them? We're trying out a different manufacturer of joints and my build is the guinea pig.

I'm running 1 x 1 heims on uppers and lowers.

Should start throwing some tube at it tomorrow.

Ya I'd ship them if you wanted them.

Only bad thing about the 6-lug shafts is I hope I don't break one. Can't just go pick up some cheap stock shafts as spares.

Midwest control. And eh somewhat. Need to get the suspension mocked up and see where my shocks need to go before I design much of it.

shoot i thought the 3 liter had 60!

several companies are offering those Midwest Control products, be interested in what you think of them after some abuse.

Cant wait to see the back half. I need some more ideas for mine!
