Axle / Differential / Re: Solid front axle swap? Anyone done this with how-to guide?
« Last post by rollguy on December 08, 2017, 10:50:58 AM »
There was a somewhat of a how to written up by Mick, but it was lost in the big delete. It required  some custom brackets and arms that he built. Rich made a jig fixture from an old floor pan to make a front subframe that uses leaf springs, but I'm not sure if he still has it. He's in southern California.
Strike Eagle did his many years ago using mostly stock Jeep parts. He doesn't do well with the internet, but he would be happy to tell you over the phone what he did. PM me if you're interested and I'll give you his number.

I still have the fixture, and anyone that wants it can come and get it for free. Yes, I am in So. Cal (Hesperia).  It is basically the front frame of an Eagle turned upside-down, and can be used to fabricate a subframe to mount a solid axle. I used leaf springs, but the fixture can be used to fabricate whatever mounts you would like, and for any springs you desire. The stock spring perches are there in case you want coil springs. You could even use all Cherokee suspension parts......Rich

Axle / Differential / Solid front axle swap? Anyone done this with how-to guide?
« Last post by Nightpath on December 08, 2017, 07:27:02 AM »
I've been debating doing the solid front axle swap to make things a bit easier. Has anyone here done it, with a write up/pictures? I know the IFS is unique to the Eagle but it's kind of a pain in the butt.

Awesome find, I've been wondering why Photobucket hasn't been coming up, thought that maybe the ISP here in the Middle East had blocked it.

Thanks :)

I had a rain gutter roof rack and basket on my Kammback a few years back, then changed to the more streamlined look  ;)
