This kit is being finished up this week for the front and rear.

All frame brackets, properly ramped axle coil buckets to accept 80 coils, axle brackets for radius arms, panhards, rear upper and lower control arms with crossmember, front upper coil and shock towers, rear upper coil buckets with shock mounts and transmission crossmember adapter brackets.

We have had excellent results with the 80 axle swap and are finally caught up on all fabrication and orders. Total of 34 kits out in the world now in 5 countries.

We are also working with a few in Australia to get all of these kits through engineering for use on Australian roads. We have 7 kits there already, but for offroad use only.

Stay tuned for more to come on these and then the 60 axle to 40 frame is next, almost all brackets are finished up in CAD and we have the 40 donor in the shop now ready to go.

Is that going to be a coil kit? How much lift?

All coil kits and we are doing everything possible to design on a 1:1 ratio. So if you want a 2" lift order 2" lift coils.

Our rears are at a 1:1.25 ratio so 2" coil produces a 2.5"ish lift.

Will there be any sort of wheelbase stretch on the ‘40? Particularly in the rear?

I want to fit 37s, and I think I could with a 4” suspension lift and tube fenders, but I would also like the rear end moved back a few inches (nothing crazy). Not sure if that’s the market you’re aiming for but this sounds like a much better way to go than a low springover!

This will be designed on a centered solution. All you would have to do is move it back exactly the dimensions you want to achieve on both sides.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this; it seems to me like the frame width taper where the rear control arms would need to mount might be an issue. I assume you have something other than what I’m picturing figured out, though!

RUCAs are on a 20.25" center. It'll fit fine for my design.

I’m stoked for this kit. I just bought an HJ61 and am now planning to do this with the 5” springs from my HDJ81. Anymore update on this? Pictures/Price?

We are still working on getting this finished up. Been busy with other orders and product development.
