Damn dude i cant even imagine attempting a project like that. Thats badass. Why did you remove the entire rear end of the jeep instead of just chopping it? Wouldnt it be easier that way because then you wouldnt have to completely tear down the driveline and fuel system and all that? Regardless, im excited to see how this all turns out.

And what kind of tool did you use to cut it in half? Im guessing not an angle grinder lol.

Its just easier to get the travel, WB, and departure angle with a full backhalf.

Wow. You just cut that thing in half like out of a movie. You don't mess around. I'll be watching this close.

Subbed.
