A few more:
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.
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.
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
