Just a small update, got the center section of my new cross member built, incorporated a 1 inch trans drop as well.

I have to say this is one sick build.

Would you happen to have a sketch of those tube doors? That is almost exactly what I'm looking for in a tube door and would love to have some sketches and dimensions of what you have.

No sketch for those..to busy..lol, drawn those on a napkin while eating a burrito, just mocked up one door(tacked in place) they fully weled and checked fit. then build the other door the same.

Link to door build in fab section.
https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f58/yu...-doors-117607/

Lots more to come, finish crossmember, build radius arm(long am) tire carrier, exo, roof rack, baja light bar(with 5 baja designs HID race lights..blah..blah..blah.

nothing much new..lack of funds, had to put new shoes on my DD..boy.. those 20" wheels really looked good on the truck sitting in the stealership...but damn...are they proud of those tires or what!

So..with that said...im gonna try and finsh welding up the crossmember this weekend.

Also picked up another set of latches to build the rear doors, and the new latch for the rear tire carrier/ can rack.

mounting and fabing the rest of my cross member...some how i totally spaced the front drive shaft clearance at esimated full droop


So its off, the center section will have to be turned around for more shaft clearance...and have to wack out the exhaust and move the cat back....oh well. not everything will go as planned.
