    Picked up a centered full flanged 44 out of an early 70's cj this week. its a little rough but all I need is the housing and the axles. I got it tore apart, gonna clean it up this evening and get the gears put in it Sunday.
    It had a great locker in it :D

    Well I finally got all the woodworking crap out of my garage and it looks like it may start cooling off so I want to get this project restarted. I have a little more work to do on the frame before its completely done but its really close. I clamped the shock towers on last night just to see what they would look like.

    I used the same shock towers. Was one of the last things I welded in, they only fit in a very small space once the fenders are installed.

    What did you do for your rear shock mounts?

    I used the stock mounts. They seemed to have enough travel, being on the angle they are helps I think. So far working well but I have not looked really closely under full flex since it is been driving.

    Started painting the frame last night. My jeep must have been built on a Monday.
