Haha, I just now realized you work at UVU too. I admire that thing every time I have to do work in the Alumni house, it's such a sweet rig!! I'm in the HVAC department here.
Please drop in and say hello the next time you're around.

I wonder if you could use Teraflex's 8 lug conversion kit on the rear CRD 60?
Thought about that, but I'm scared of the cost. I'll check on it.

You can move the bracket forward but very little before it contacts the pitman arm when your turned all the way driver and even then you have to limit up travel or get super creative with the track bar bracket. your way better off to shorten the long side or retube both sides to get the diff closer to center.
Dang you Ryan, you make too much sense. But I would have stuck with the ProRock housing if I wanted to retube. How much would it help to shorten the long side?

At the very least I would say the differential needs to go towards the passenger side atleast 2 inches to be able to set up everything optimally. If you can make that happen with shortening the long side go for it but I am not sure if its doable depending on how wide you want to be.

The truss and mounts look amazing, very clean pieces and nice, tight fit.... Artec builds some amazing parts. Are you going to do anything special far as welding to the cast center section?

I'm excited to see how this thing gets mounted up. A couple earlier posts in this thread have me curious on a couple things. ?

Of course my philosophy is never let a tough job stand in the way of another tough job, so why not add them together. While everything is mostly accessible I decided to add the PSC Big Bore XD kit to the mix. I've had this system for a few months sitting in the garage and wanted to get it in. To complicate matters my Jeep has a RIPP supercharger which I explained in detail to PSC when ordering. They assured me they would send the kit that fits that scenario. It is a major pain to pull it and after 3 times of assembling and disassembling the systems and then contacting PSC I found out they sent the wrong pulley. I marked the bottom of the RIPP mount where it was contacting the pump pulley and they need send a different pulley with more offset. There is millimeter clearance but the stock one fit so this should.

That PSC Big Bore II is massive. I had one for a short time and liked it with my 35's but it wasn't hydro-assist capable, just the gearbox with the larger sector shaft and bigger piston. I removed it after about 8 months because it wouldn't work with the LS engine so I replaced it with hydro-assist with the 37's.

After being majorly sick, and with a lot of help from Matt and Dave, it finally all came together in time to make it to Moab over the weekend. We did postpone a couple of things, but got the 60 in the front, the new PSC Big Bore and pump in, and all the new steering links. Here are a few pics from the project.

Man that turned out awesome. I watched Bart wheel all day Saturday, and he has quite a sick ride! I love that your jeep doesn't jump out and grab your attention, but it is super built and quite capable when you take a closer look. Great job Bart (and team)!!

Thanks Tim, and that's the highest compliment and exactly what I was going for.

The Jeep has a very commanding stance Bart. Looks great.

Maybe I missed this but what tires/wheels are you running now? Last I read you were running some used TR beadlocks and 39" KM2's but those look like maybe 40's and definitely different wheels being 8-lug.

Looks like TR HD17s and 39" KM3s to me.

Thanks Mike. The tires are actually the same ones, 39" KM3s that I bought about 8 months ago. The wheels are new Trailready beadlocks with the smaller ring and 8 on 6.5. The old wheels were Trailready's also, in the 5x5 lug, but powdercoated black with the larger rock ring on them. I really like Trailready wheels. I was aired down to 8 psi over the weekend and never burped a tire.
