A few more:
I've heard nothing but good things from people who have the Cage arms, probably money well spent. As for using them in the rear, i'd probably go with a 4 or 3 link or just stay with leafs for simplicity...cheap and easy.With cost being a huge factor, I will probably settle for a coil setup, front and rear. Cage coils front and rear, using cage arms front and rear. I think that would be pretty sick. Comments, suggestions?
I AM convinced that I need more WB and width. I hope to achieve this without chopping up the body too much. One of my goals is to keep the thing looking like a BII, and keep it somewhat streetable. DB1 driving to Moab all the way from Cali is good motivation!
Am I gaining width with the EB D44 and 9" over my D28 and 7.5? I hope so. Also I plan to run 13.50 tires, and possibly wheel spacers.
Not much to update on....although I'm considering cashing out my 401k to get this finished!!! HAHA!Any updates on your rig? My own project is pretty close to yours except mine has D35 and 8.8 with 4.88's. I also have an EB D44/9" that I've rebuilt with 4.88's. I just picked up another straight BII with no engine or tranny, perfect fro these axles to sit in. I also went with Perry's 6" front and 3" rear fenders instead of the Bushwackers you chose.
Thanks! Suprisingly it is great on the street. WAY better than my old worn out TTB and TTB lift! It is very soft, so I get some body roll, and dive when I brake. Brakes pull to the right really hard too....not sure why that is. It has some play in the steering, but no wander to speak of.That turned out awesome Hows it drive on the street...any wandering or anything? Are your tires rubbing on the front bumper in that pic? A lil' sawzall action will solve that
