I have the brake lines done and they do work with the stock master cylinder. I was able to get standard brake line manifold nuts and cut and reflare the tubing. Works great. :thumb: Carquest had all the stuff I needed and was also cheaper than anyone else. :cool: Still don't have a clue on how I am going to do the ebrake. :scratching: I could shell out the cash and get a driveshaft brake, but I'm cheap. Got the body trimming done. Need to do some sheet metal work to clean things up. That part really isn't a priority yet. I also want to put in a track bar for the rear. It seems like I am getting a lot of spring wrap. The front drive shaft was too short, even with a 1" spacer. I had an extra front d-shaft laying around and cut the slip joint off the u-joint section. This allowed for 3"s of more travel, and the drive angle is a little better now. I worry about the rear driveline. I basically made an adapter plate that uses the samurai bolt pattern and the stock bolts and also made the bolt pattern for the yoke on the 12 bolt on the same plate to connect the two. I would rather have a custom hybred shaft made, but as before, I'm cheap. How is the rear driveshaft on your d44 hooked up? And the ebrake? :scratching:

I have sumo shafts, just took off the sami flange on the axle side, and hooked the u joints direct. front and rear both use the same u joint as the sumo shafts.

How did you hook up the e-brake? Does the Sumo shaft use the same ujoints as the stock Sammi?

no e/brake

the sumo shafts (mine were made by az driveshaft) use the spicer 1110 u joint. same as most jeeps.

az driveshaft can make you a flange to fit you axles and hook to your stock sami driveshaft flange.
