    Got some dirt time in on her today. Don't laugh at my fake bumper.......it makes me legal. :) So far all I've done is put a huge dent in the front diff cover and now the drive line squeks. Pics are boring but it'll get better after I get a front driveline done. On to the pics!!!!......

    NOTAJP: is that cross section with holes in it that front leaf spring mounts are welded to a factory cross section of the frame?
    I have a 94 Ranger that im doing a SAS to using the YJ front axle as well.
    picked up one a few months back with new 4.88 Yukon gears already installed. Is there a soa kit for the D30 or is it just a new spring perch pad welded onto axle?
    Are you using the 600 lb or 800 lb yYJleaf springs?
    According to my local spring shop both were used in YJs depending on engine installed.
    Currently I have the 8 plug 2.3L with 326,245 miles on it & still running strong. I already have 4wd 5spd & 1354 bolted up & 4wd driveline to 99 8.8 Ranger rear end.
    I have a 2001 disc explorer 8.8 with new 4.88 gears & lock rite locker to be installed soon as I have 315/75/16s to be mounted.
    I have a custom front bumper with a hidden 10,000 winch installed & may either installed a newer low milage 2.3L or the 151k milage 4.0 SOHC V-6 from the 2001 explorer.
    Either way im thinking the 800 lb leafs would be the route to go as I could remove a leaf if needed.
    Did you make or buy the angled front spring mounts & did noy s

    my small dog jumped up when I wasnt finished typing & caused it to be posted.
    Did not see a close up or shackle set up for front leafs. Is it REVOLVER type or standard shackles & how is the frame end set up for the rear of front leafs. Also where can I get the high steer set up for the D30 CAD axle
