    It was a jk

    Blew the 3.6 in the jk. Decided I wanted to ls swap and slap some super duty axles under it. 5.38s e lockers the whole shebang. Slow process due to have a kiddo in late March and buying a house in early March. Had a 04 5.3 and 4l60e slapped in its forever home with a complete standalone zero wiring left of the jk. till plans changed.Had to sell the tons and the guy wanted the whole drivetrain too. Made me a sea I couldn’t refuse and started back to square one.
    So I decided to say screw it might as well do 2.5 tons and picked up a set.
    need a new power plant and was on the hunt. Found a buddy with a yukon denali sitting in his yard for a few years with a leaky heater core. Scored it for a 1k and have almost sold more parts off it than what I paid for it.
    It’ll have a lq4 and a 4l65e 241c combo.
    now here’s were I go full retard, up here in ask all the big size buggies CC trucks with the long wheelbases seem to do amazing. So I decided to extend the frame four feet and make a mini extended cab 2 door jk out of what’s left of it Atleast

          Outstandin' sir!

          The best thang to do with a JK is to eliminate as much of it as ya can.

            Started cleaning and removing the brake drums off the old rocks. And got the 63s tacked up.

              Finally, a JK that will weigh more than mine.

                  Hahahah it might be close. Still only a 2 door tho!

                  what’s everyone’s thoughts on a 3 link with rockwells? Kind of debating doing it seeing as I have all the parts and pieces to do it.

                    I'd start checking out all the buggy builds running those axles. I know I've seen more than a few linked. Running a single upper with the weight of those axles, I'd make that fucker beefcake strong.

                      I can’t fuckin’ tell which are your build pics and which are someone’s avatar pics. WTF.








                      Running a rear 4 link on my Blazer at about 138” (?) wheelbase. I can’t imagine the weight on the 3 link as mentioned above on the front of mine (currently leaf sprung).

                        BTW my rear 64s hated life. I went through 3 anti wrap bars in the rear and was never happy how it sat. It did flex like a mofo but would ride on the bumpstops and jump all over the piece. Maybe I shoulda dialed it in better.

                          Been busy with work the kiddo and starting a dude business painting houses to found the project. But did squeeze in time to do some googling and more research. Definitely don’t think a 3 link is strong enough well not the reliability I want with Rockwell’s.
                          also got some quotes on tires and damn living in Ak sucks. Got quoted 1000$ for shipping from WCR For 19.5s. Then 2k for a set of 20-24 from D &D paddy tires.
                          tricks to get cheaper shipping?

                            I've actu'ly bought my last few sets from Amazon ... with free shippin'. That's a good savin's on (5) 40's.

                            Unfortunately, I truly doubt they carry what you want. And does Amazon even do free shippin' on anythang all the way up to you? 'Magine livin' in paradise has its price.

                              I always wanted to do a 2.5 ton axle build, should pair up nice with some 54" tires.
