Project #BigChief

Full Size Invasion 2018 during Easter Jeep Safari


We are building a 1979 Jeep Cherokee Chief to take to the Full Size Invasion during Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah.  We have been very fortunate to partner up with industry friends to make this happen.  

To start off we gutted the underbody and suspension of the Jeep and started from scratch.  In the front we went with an undersprung Dodge kingpin Dana 60 with 5:13 Revolution gears and an ARB air locker with Revolution drive slugs.  In the rear we fabbed in 63" leaf springs with custom Barnes 4wd mounts and hangers to hold up our 14 bolt rear axle.  Inside the rear axle are 5:13 Revolution gears and another ARB air locker powered by a twin ARB compressor.  The Jeep rests on 40" Mickey Thompson MTZ P3 tires which will eat up the rocks.

Under the Jeep we tossed the stock quadra drive transfer case in favor of a 241 Chevy case fitted with an Offroad Design slip yoke eliminator kit paired with custom 1350 drive shafts.
