black friday I purchased a 99 xj hp d30 with wj knuckles and akebono calipers to swap my cad d 30 housing, tore it down sunday, first thing on the agenda for it is track bar mount, hub adapters, sleeve kit, and C gussets.

There is a full truss on amazon that goes all the way to the knuckle and would give you a platform to mount the trackbar mount on. I think it was Artec and was $99. That could solve one C gusset and help solve track bar mount location.

Little update on my front axle build I have striped the new housing and the JKS adapter hub flanges came in yesterday, I have decided to go with the artec truss. I should order it in a couple weeks. Here are the adapters, I was surprised they come painted I figured they would be bare metal since they are weld on.

Been awhile since I was able to post a update on this but I am making progress it’s been slow but finally picking up some momentum.
I blasted the knuckles and caliper brackets and repainted the caliper brackets, also in the pic is my JKS track bar relocation bracket, TMR tie rod flip inserts arrived recently.

Here is my artec truss and c gussets along with currie johnny joint control arm bushings

Yesterday I cut the passenger control arm off and stabilizer arm tab to make room on the new axle
Image
after a bit of cutting and a cutting disc exploding trying to take my finger off
Image
one more thing

XJ will be looking a bit different in the near future. :D so it’s been a slow go lately but finally seeing some progress should go see Ryan next Saturday burn all this together

I went to Ryan's this weekend so he could weld my stuff for since I deffinately not a welder, and I finished up the paint yesterday I may go do a bit of touching up. Also my new Yaesu ft2900 2 meter Radio Arrived yesterday I hope to have to have it kinda installed this weekend. I have an Idea floating in my head to build a custom over head console at a later date.
