I was gonna say, I he is running a Jeep D30 even a Jeep D44 couldn't be that different width wise to run under the same frame/platform... Glad it is all straightened out.

I can only be borrowing vehicles to get to work, 1 or 2 days max, and thats saying if I didn't work a weekend, and was still at it on Monday and Tuesday. I guess step 1 is going to be putting away a little money and start "window" shopping any local junkyards I can find. Maybe take a pad and be measuring the Jeeps up and comparing them to what's in my driveway.

EDIT: Can a mod change the name of the thread please since the CAD/Solidworks idea has basically been scrapped, go ahead and be creative.

if you do leaf spring i can see it in a weekend. if you do coils, no way.

i had mine close to sitting on the springs in 3 days, but there was so much work just to make it driveable it took me 2-3 more weeks.

i tried this im gona have it done in 2 days non-sense...
