MY Juggy
« on: January 26, 2016, 02:42:18 PM »
For some reason I thought it'd be smart to trade my nicely built TJ (d30/44 ARBs, 37"Iroks, air shocks blah blah blah)

For something a little more hardcore



CJ/YJ juggy, 42s, D60s, full hydro, 355sbc, sm465,air shocks. So I drove to Michigan to do the deal. Stopped at Rausch Creek on the way back to test it out. Huge difference between wheeling a stock wb TJ and this thing. It wasn't without its flaws but it did pretty well.
It had a poor shifting 4 speed that drove me crazy that first time out. I knew I wanted an auto in it and to redo the interior.

The rebuild started in Oct '14, the plan of just "throwing" in an automatic got outa hand pretty quickly. WB grew to 114"ish, put C/Os in the front, totally redid the belly plate reinforcements, tore all the wiring out, re designed the cage and floors, new dash and painted it etc...






Since then I've put a Griffin radiator/Derale dual fan set up in.

Ditched the Iroks for TSLs. Still need to do some wiring, swap out the front and rear axle shafts.
As she sits today

Always something to do...
(I should mention, my buddy Marc was the fabricator/welder, I was just along for the ride)

Did you bump up the rear shafts to 1.5"? Looks good!

Choosing the new color was quite the ordeal. I forget the details now but I think his wife wanted it "glittery".

I'm torn between making the D60 fit 35spl axles or just waiting to find a 14b semi-built (with mounts and such).
I'm not sure the 60 is worth building. It survived with stock shafts, so my short term fix is to throw in some chromos...
Jay is partly correct, Stacy did want purple. But I was pretty committed to the orange from the start.
I still have very little seat time so I'm just hoping to get out more this year and see how it does.

I thought she wanted metal flake but didn't know the term, or maybe that was just Marc talkin smack around the campfire.

With 43 SX, SBC, sm465 and atlas, the D60 rear shafts would not be my concern; I would be more concern with pinion deflection. The 14 bolt's pinion support bearing will address this concern.  The 60 will survive with a light foot and sensibility, but I would look for a 14 bolt.

Are you using off the shelf rear truss/ link mounts?

The th350 is stealing some of the massive output of my TBI SBC(maybe 200 horse), but I get what you're saying.
The chassis side link mounts were off the shelf parts, not sure about the axle side mounts. The truss is 2 pieces of DOM.

I am "in the market" for a 14b if anybody has an extra...

I missed the auto swap part. [censored] it, run it till it blows. Have the 14 bolt waiting. You could just go with an off the shelf 14 bolt truss then tie it into the pinion drop out, the rest is welding and gearing. A pretty well built 60 isn't the worse problem you could have. Get some seat time and see what happens.

Close to pulling the trigger on this

TMR disc conversion
New seals and bearings
Ballistic Fab shave kit
Ballistic truss and pinion guard
Yukon spool
I've been haggling all weekend...
I'll run the 60 this season and see how it holds up

I got some better pics of it today, the welds look good not all buggered up...
Messed around on the trailer and Heep today. Got the fan controller in, didn't get to test it because I forgot to bring my spare "key".

It's a Derale PWM controller, designed to gradually spin the fans to keep amp spikes down and will run them however fast is required to keep the motor at whatever temp is set...
