Awesome! Keep it coming, buddy! Hoping to start another build thread myself soon, I've aquired a CJ5 now, along with a 350TBI/SM465/NP208, and I want to stretch and 4-link either the CJ5, or my 7.. haven't decided yet, but I'm still on the hunt for the 14 bolt and the D60. I have some plans for a new style of tube fenders that have more of a CJ feel/look to them as soon as I get my tubing bender. It'll probably be my CJ7, I'm a big boy and want to see how hard it is to get in and out of the 5 first, then we'll see. I get the CJ5 next month and it's really solid, can't wait!

I've been trying to look for some stretched CJ builds on springs, they're hard to come by. Pirate has a thread for stretched leaf spring rigs, but there is little info on the springs they are using in the thread. It would be cheaper to use leafs, but I really like the low stance of the linked rigs.. it's pretty cool to have 42" tires and a frame hiedth of around 24", I might still be ablr to get in it without a ladder that way, LOL!

Keep the pics coming!

I hear ya on the lower height... I will see how this goes.

It seems to be easier to stretch the wheelbase on a '7. I wound up at 104" without much drama.

I may yet wind up with '73-'93 D150 52" rear springs on the back. My stock K10 springs have the center pin centered so there is 26" of spring on each side of the axle. The Dodge springs are split 24/28 to move the axle 2" back. XJ leaf springs are similar but are notoriously week and bendy.

Going aftermarket instead of junkyard would open the choices a bunch. XJ or '89-94 Toy app springs would work if the had enough strength.

If I had it to do over I would have just linked it...

I am using a pic snagged from the internet...
I am no welder. I am part owner of a millermatic 260 but the guy who owns the other half is a welder and does all of my important welding.

I just moved and it has put this on the back burner. I will probably start on the floor in a week or two. I will post update then.

I hate how life interferes with Jeeps.... Gawd I hate moving.

you never know how much s*** you have till you move. And for some reason you can never get rid on enought before you move, to make it easier.

Did you ever get rid of the Quadratrac Transfer Case?
