View Full Version : new project, finally got it driving
08-08-2005, 10:23 AM
Well after months and months of parts sitting in the garage, I finally got he Cherokee in the air. there is still a lot to be done, Armor, winch, limiting straps, steering, etc....but at least it's a driver now. A some of you may know, this has been a magazine buildup, so it takes me forever to do the install, and shoot the pictures and write the editorial...oh well. Here's a pic.
Currie Built Dana44 with CHromoly Warn 5 on 5-1/2 kit and Detroit lockers
Currie Built 9" with CHrommoly axles and Detroit
Advanced Adapters SYE on 231 ( AtlasII in the garage, just need to install it)
10 Rock Krawler suspension (will be lowered to 8" as soon as I fine tune)
Clayton Hard Arm kit
Oh, and the tires are just temp 35x12.50 17's. I have a new set of Toyo Open Country MT's in a 37 ont he way. Looks a little goofy with the ones on it now.
Are you getting any vibes?

well if by "vibes" you mean hot chicks checking me out.....the wife says I wish. but the driveshafts are being put in as we speak, so I'll be finding out soon. I expect a little death wobble until I get the new steering made. But we'll see.....

Very nice jephs422 ! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-clappin-yellow.gif
I like them tires Just as they are- More rock climbing capability I think. http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-rock.gif

The tires I have coming have huge side lugs and siping, and are a 3 ply wall. They will climb rocks like it's nobodies business......plus, they look cooler!!!!!
Nice rig! She looks like she's ready to rock! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbs-up-ani.gif

here's a few poser pics. You can tell that the suspension is still a little stiff. As soon as the armor and rear bumper goes on it'll help it start to settle a bit. When it's all said and done, the tires WILL stuff into the wheel well. I need to lengthen the brake lines more than I thought, and add the limiting straps still.
That's some great articulation especially for leaving leafs in the back.
Great Job! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif

Two things about longer brake lines: make them braided, and keep them secured and away from moving parts.
