Default Wilders Cherokee on 44's

So now that it is under its own power and sittin on its new shoes I figuered ide start its own thread. Though its not "finished" its damn close compared to when we started on it. The next major thing we need to figure is a name for this beast... and we need your help! so please chime in on what yall think we should call it.

still on the list:

clock t-case?
custom x-member?
fab front drive shaft
shocks
front brake lines
and finish all new wiring and lines
TORQUE ARMS

WE DID DRIVE IT TODAY!!!

OH and STEERING TOO!

Yikes You better fix that steering! It won't last five minutes in a ditch with those 44's let alone a trail. Do we need a Midwestern 4x4 scary steering thread?...I got my first nominee


EDIT No track-bar either? Better get that in too, it's a uni-body on 44's.

Those tires will bend the shit out of both the tie rod and drag link. Hydro assist might help, but a stronger tubular tie rod and drag link would be required either way.

I don't think those round u-bolts are gonna work too well on that square tube for you. Maybe the next thing you coble weld together should be your leaf springs to your truss/lift/crossmember bar thing.

This build has gotta be a joke.
