Damn... Thats one huuuuuuge b!tch!

Looks good though.

The only thing i see is... you may want to look at lengthening the panhard and trying to flatten it out some.

With the way you have it now, the axle is going to swing side to side pretty good.

there is plenty of room for the shock hoops with no body lift but we will have to cut the inner fenders a little and he sold the yota a while back to buy most of the parts for this project

there is really no way to lengthen the panhard as there will be no room for mounts.... it is actually just fine now we have cycled the suspension and there is no side to side movement and no binding of any sort....

looking at the pics it looks like you could get it a little longer, might have to get creative with the lower CO mount bit it could be done.

ya I am sure we could have moved it over about an inch but really thats not going to make much of a difference... the axle is in there and not moving regardless so I am not too concerned on the length... as for the steering shaft we have modified the ranger part for the time being until I can come up with something better... it seems to work now however it needs a pillow block or some sort of side to side support as there are too many u joints in there and its kinda shaky... thats on the to-do list for tonight along with the drag link and fine tuning the links...

Very nice!
My friends in the Portland area have had problems with (lack of) fender flares, even with a few jeeps where the tires only stuck out around 3".
But I guess time will tell if it is a problem.

I agree about the trac bar... It may not appear to move side to side, but it does, trust me... when the axle moves up, the trac bar gets flatter and pushes the axle toward the pass. side. Droop moves the axle towards the driver side. Steering links are going to be a little complicated/goofy because the drag link needs to be parallel with the trac bar or you will have bad bump steer. Just saying... as long as you are happy with it, its all good. If you don't like how it drives, you can always cut it off and change it. BTW, you definitely NEED a BIG sway bar lol. Look into adapting one from an explorer or something. They are nice and thick.

Its impossible to have no side to side movement with a panhard.
