    Thank you. I really liked how the tranny mount/skid plate came out. I am debating whether or not to curl up the front and rear lip of it though, to prevent it from getting hung up on rocks and stuff. I will probably leave it and see how it does as is.

    Got the front suspension put together. I will get it cleaned up tomorrow, and get the panhard bar mounted. Ended up using the TLT shocks up front, and stock MRC shocks in the rear. The rear flex looks pretty good to me, but the front needs a bit more. I think a longer shock will help that out, just gotta get one. Also got the drivetrain in, kinda rough, but it works for now.

    Stance - the goal anyway

    I almost dont need a panhard actually, the way the front shocks are mounted keeps it very stiff, no side to side. That actually worries me a bit, I dont know how long it will last. One thing is for sure, Im not planning on running this thing in comps anymore, I just dont see it getting enough articulation with the setup. Besides, I really like my jeep and plan on repainting it and upgrading it a bit. The Defender is now a trail only rig, which is fine with me, its still my favorite.

    Me too Hunter, me too. Its going to be a while, still have the body to do, then all the accessories, like bumpers, roll bars, ladder....all going to be made out of either brake line or brass.

    Got the panhard in, and servo. Since these photos I actually got the links to lay down much better, more parrellel to each other. A quick test on the carpet shows that its pretty descent right now, no major tweeking will be needed. My only concern will be the side I put the panhard on, it goes opposite of the steering linking and Im not sure if thats limiting anything. Any opinions are certainly welcome.











    Remember, the links all site rather parrellel to each other now, just havent snapped that pic yet. But here you can see the panhard on the left and the rest of the links on the right. Testing it briefly showed no real limitations, so I think it will be ok.

    Moved the panhard and adjusted a few things. Heres a quick vid of the steering. Hardly any bump steer, but I definately need the XVD's for these axles.
