Do it take lots of pictures.

Minor update, I was able to use one of the original e brake lines on the dana 60. So now at least I have a single wheel e brake. The other line is too short by 2ft.
Someone who knows about brakes:
The rear dana 60 had bubble flares on the hard lines. I cut them off and double flared the lines to be able to use my existing extended brake line. Problem: when I press the brake, there is resistance and the jeep stops, but the pedal hits the floor. Before, if I hit the brakes, all four tires would lock up. What can I do to fix this?

You might need to upgrade you brake booster it or something to do with the proportioning valve. The cylinders on the 60 are probably bigger that the 8.25 and you might need to push higher volume

Chassis brackets are in.
In regards to the brakes, I'm leaning towards a bigger master cylinder or proportioning valve. I haven't researched that yet.

Bought a Lincoln 135 welder. This should be enough for what in doing. I'll probably start practicing on my roofrack. I need to pick it up again.

It's been slow because of funds, but I restored the Jeep to daily driver mode. It will stay like this for a while till I have enough funds to do more major work. The stiffeners are coming soon. I set up my welder for gas so I'm ready.
Also. I'm doing leaf springs in the front, after much research, it's better for me.

Bought a 96 F350 dana 60 High pinion drivers drop 4:10 gears and manual hubs. That will be my front axle.

Project halted due to funds. Still In daily driver mode, but got most of the kinks out. Did one side of the unibody stiffeners. Also installed spare tire carrier. Current pics.

Yup. I just sold the rear 60. I'm keeping the front 60 for now, because I'm looking at old F250s, in which case my front 60 will bolt on in place of the TTB independent setup.
Here's a current picture back to stock axles, 2.5" BB and 31s.

Default Lund moon visor install

Hey, I saw that you had an old ranger Lund moon visor installed on your Cherokee. How did you go about this?? It looks like you had to cut off a bit of the side mounting sections. Did you end up drilling new holes on the sides to attach the sides of it or did you just use the 6 top mounting holes??? I have just purchased a Lund moon visor for a ranger and am trying to figure out how to mount it to my Cherokee.
I hope to hear back soon.

You will need to update your master cylinder. I would suggest going with the OEM unit from the Dodge. Bigger brakes require a larger piston in the master cylinder
