My favorite caped crusader is back. Were you been man?


Back on topic. I have read that the JK uses the same 6 speed manual as the TJ. If this is true can I swap in the Rubicon transfer case from a JK?

damn that cage looks sick

cept for the stock hoop????? i thought G woulda replace it 1st thing. What is the wall thickness? G might want to replace it with something a little more stout (remember cody is gonna drive it and might be tempted to test it ... again )

but it looks sweet. G, are you gonna add a cross bar behind the seats? or and X bar behind them?


one day when my jeep grows up, it will have a bad ass cage too.

Also, G, how much to add a removable cross bar behind the front seat with a tabs for a harness?

G said he wanted to remove it but could not due to the fact of the factory soft top and the factory seat belts. but yes there is now a bar behind the backseat I just have not taken pics of it. G also said he is going to get back on later tonight and explain the build and why it was done the way it was.

Were any modifications done to the axle? Does a JK axle "bolt on" or do you have to reposition the brackets? If you don't have to reposition the brackets what does that do to the pinion angle? Any updated pictures?

I had nothing to do with the mod, but yes mods to the brackets are required

Thanks Joe. Do you know if they reused the brackets or were new ones required?

Hey Martij

The front spring purched had to be moved but g used the factory ones.
The rear was another story G built brackets from scratch, the factory ones can not be used!
