I think you mean YJ transmission with an external slave bell housing?

Otherwise it sticks out under the truck like a soar thumb under the frame to all the rocks

Thats what i was thinking, but your first post listed a "external slave bell housing from a 1990 YJ", which doesnt exsist.

External Slave AX-15 from 1990 YJ to achieve a flatbelly via transfer case clock angle

 

 

so i am confused on what your talking about, i think that explains itself? thanks for reading my build thread though! i guess i should of  put a comma after external slave to make it easier to understand :D

Not important LOL.

But what i was trying to say is there is no such thing as an external slave AX15 from a Yj of any year.

since my last update a few things have happened.
the last trip to apex, we stopped in the nearest town to get some food. 

while hanging out in the parking lot i noticed my rear diff housing had failed. (the right tube has always been bent since i owned the truck, i guess i gave it the final nudge haha)

so called the tow truck and get er hauled back home.

i ended up picking up another scout II d44 housing for $40, it needed alot of cleaning before i even was able to put the gearset in.

but i shimmed it all into place. and meticulously cleaned the entire housing

I then cut the retainers off my axle shafts, since my disc brake conversion brackets become the new retainers

and with the help of my friend designed and made a truss for the new axle

i then painted the axle, once it was stitched together.  everything else had a thorough final clean, then  mostly every part got a fresh coat of paint.

 

tossed the axle back under the truck and back out into the bush

 

there is a few reasons why i stayed with the dana 44 under the truck instead of going to a 1 ton axle

unsprung weight, would to too great and i would have to stiffen the truck (i will down the road  but not now) before i could even think about driving it again

new rims and tires

all new gears locker upgraded shafts ect... for me currently that financially isnt an option

the biggest one though is diff clearance.

 

the way the truck is set up is to achieve maximum diff clearance ,the axles are strong enough built up to withstand the 39.5 tires

snow wheeling is HUGE here, and it is my favorite season. diff clearance is critical. if i went to a 14 bolt and shaved the lower portion of the housing i still would loose clearance and that is not an option.

that being said, i also maintain a large sidewall keeping the 15" rims

i ended up finding play in my upper ball joint bore of the knuckle (the ball joint did not have play)

so i sourced out a new scout II knuckle for $20, tossed some new ball joints in it and reamed it for a over knuckle 1 ton TRE

 

i had to cut off the old knuckle, since it was no good, i had zero issue chopping it up.

otherwise i would have taken a sawzall and cut the upper and lower balljoints out

with the RCV's in a Scout II spicer 44 (dana 44) they have to be installed assembled at the same time as the knuckle is being installed ( it is a bit of a royal pain)

in order to disassemble the axle, you literally have to cut the knuckles off. it is a one way installation. once they are installed. there is no nice way of removal

 

at this time, i refreshed 1 ton over knuckle steering with all new TRE's and put it all back together

also just some randoms. i refreshed my comanche badges, cleaned, polished, repainted the black and a generous amount of clear coat

and side by side my buddy's 2" lowered cherokee, that walks most of the imports in town

and me testing out the new parts
