Jeep CJ-7 on 43" SX Swampers and 1 ton axles
- by Dan DuBose
CJ lovers, this build is for you...
The owner of this Jeep wanted a proven setup. Dan DuBose is the owner of Motobilt and the creative designer of this amazing CJ-7. He has built world class off road race cars with the most advanced technology of the time. With the customer's budget concerns, we opted to utilize leaf springs by combining budget friendly parts that are trail capable. The tear down process began by stripping the axles and suspension from the frame.
The benefits of the full width one ton axles are not just their amazing strength, but the stability they provide. The one tons are approximately 14 inches wider overall than the stock CJ axles that came factory equipped. This extra clearance allows for the use of massive off road tires. Initially, a set of 39.5 x 18 boggers were going to be utilized. That was until a set of 43" SX super swampers and 17" HD Trail Ready bead locks became available.
