Posted by Brad Barnes on 7/6/2015 to Barnes Projects

Congrats to Aaron Keiser for winning a $100 Barnes 4wd Gift Card in this month’s drawing for the Barnes 4x4 Upgrade challenge. Take a look at his upgraded 1991 Jeep:

Aaron’s Custom Fabrication

Aaron uses Barnes’ custom leaf spring frame outriggers to outboard his rear leaf springs,  an SUA leaf spring kit for his rear XJ springs, spring hangers, gussets, and a D60 axle swap kit.  

Thanks for showing off your rig, Aaron. We look forward to seeing it again with the new Barnes parts you buy with your prize!

UPDATE: Skid Plate Modification

In mid August Aaron got back in touch with us to share his 3 inch drop skid plate modification to work with his Ford drivetrain. He completely redid the exhaust and trans mount at the same time. Thanks for the updates, Aaron!

I was wondering if you could tell me what D60 axles you used, from what vehicle?

I used a 14 bolt from a CUCV Military Chevy. Used barnes pinion guard, disc brake brackets, shave cover, SUA swap kit, and frame outriggers. The kingpin D60 front axle came from an 1989 F350 which has a Ballistic fab cover, BTF high steer, 35 spline stub shaft conversion and Elocker. I used Barnes frame outriggers on the front as well to work with the wider spring width of the late model KP D60.
