Default 1 ton jk build

I sold my dana 44s off my jk last oct or nov, and sold my lift and tires not soon after that. I wanted to put one ton axles under my jeep, but didn't have the money to do what I wanted and buy axles from currie or dynatrac. So I called my friend that works at a junk yard and pulled some axles out of a 2002 F-350 and the build got started. The first thing I did was order a bunch of parts.
Sterling 10.50 rear

Dana 60 front

Tires 39.5 13.50 17 Iroks going on 17 inch trailready bead locks

Solid axle spyntec kit with my ORI that I am running in the rear.

14 Inch travel RRD rock krawler coilovers with triple rate setup

Moved some stuff around for the coilover mount

Coilover mount, still to need to add some bracing and crossbar

Rear ORI mount, these will be attached with a crossbar


Ori mounted

ON ALL 4




Big thanks to yingyang. Still need to add tie rod, drag link, track bar, and mount the tj gas tank behind the rear axle. Should be rolling under its own power next week.
