Steel inserts instead of threaded aluminum for one. Big discount and already having a set on the Jeep without issues as well. Hate the Spiderlock looks.
Yeah, still not 100% on 40" or 43" tires. MT shows recommended minimum rim width for 40" is 9" and 43" is 9.5". Probably wont make a bit of difference either way.
Few of us are looking at going to either SMORR or RMR in April. You all going to have working rigs in April? If so, and we decide on SMORR, I will send you a note.
If you have never been to SMORR its worth a look. We probably will be there a lot this Spring working bugs out of the two YJ builds.
Not doing anything but maintenance to mine this year. Might work on the cage some. Nothing major. Unless it brakes I will 100% have a working rig. Just charged the battery up and started it for the first time in a couple months.
Any more info on these Mevotech ball joints? First I've heard of them. Which ones did you get?Heading over to to the shop tonight to weld up the 14 bolt truss and tear down the diffs.
Ordered 2 sets of Mevotech ball joints for both the Dana 60's, one for me and one for a gift to my friends rig for all his help. We are going to try these out and see if we have a failure. If we do, ball joint eliminators are the next step.
Also super excited about a conversation I had with Mickey Thompson today. Not 100% yet, but it looks like I might be getting a set of 43" Pro XS tires for the Jeep. This means I will need to highline and will probably replace all my armor. Looking at Motobilt for everything.
More to come....
The TTX for Dana 60. Good reviews online for guys running SD 60's. Went in super tight. Will see if they hold up. If not its getting BJ eliminators. We have them in two rigs, but neither are on the trails yet.
I tried em on my Dana 44's. I was not impressed. Two sets of lowers, both returned under warranty. I'm running Napa brand now. Should have just gotten Spicer.
General question on the SD 60 swap. I think I read that you are going with 14" ORI struts and this question is not relevant to coilovers or ORI so not a question related to your swap, just a general question. My question - I have seen other forums and videos of people installing a Barnes or Artec truss with coil spring perches and these coil spring perches are installed on top of the truss which is quite a few inches above the axle tube. Do you all know if they are installing shorter coil springs to maintain ride height and losing up travel OR are they raising the ride height the distance of the truss? I have not found a post or video that talks to this.
My buddies YJ has a Dana 60 with no truss. It’s an old Chevy kingpin though. Also on coil overs. Upper link brackets welded to the tube. Lots of guys running the swap truss with coils. Works pretty good but the jeep gets wide.For how light a TJ is, I was looking at how to install a SD 60 with no truss. But unless you go coilover, there is really no place to attach a coil spring perch on that drivers side of the SD Dana 60 without adding the truss structure to give you a flat surface. Also, need the bridge to add the upper control arm mount.
