Jeep Tech Frame

The Jeep Technical frame pages are all about frames for Jeep vehicles. Jeeps used regular channel frames, boxed frames, and tube frames. Later Jeeps use a frameless uni-body construction in the XJ, ZJ, and WJ. Your frame might not be up to the task of hard use, especially if it is old. Frame boxing and gusseting can prevent frame cracks. Skid plates and cross members are also covered in the frame section.

Do you need more ground clearance on your TJ but don't want to add more suspension lift or bigger tires? A flat skid plate may be the answer for you. We will take you through the install of a flat skid plate and the other parts necessary to make it work, and as a bonus we will show you what we did to improve ground clearance under the gas tank at the same time.
Skid Plate Advanced Frame Works Custom Skid Plate
For most off-roading the YJ factory skid plate works pretty well. When you start playing in the big rocks though, the rocks usually win. After running the trails during last years Dakota Territory Challenge in South Dakota I was in need of a replacement skid plate.
Jeep Therapy Frame Work
If you want to build a great Jeep, you need a good frame to build it from. Jeep Therapy's frame in need of some attention. Hard use and moisture has not been friendly to this frame.
CJ Spring Hanger Ramps
Are you tired of getting hung up on your CJ's spring hangers? Spring hanger ramps can help you slide over those big rock steps.

CJ Shock Tower Drain
I recently found and resolved a potential rust area on the front frame rails of my 1983 Jeep CJ7. An area that is often over looked as a collection point for dirt, mud and grime is between the front shock towers and the frame rail.
Frame and Bumper Fab
Fame and bumper fabrication for the Jeep Tech Editors CJ-2A Project Pieces & Parts. Ideas on building a stout flat fender frame and bumpers for a minimalist.
Frame Boxing and Gusseting
The frame work for Project Pieces and Parts wasn't done after simply chopping up and splicing together the '73 Commando frame to flat fender specifications. There was still a large frame crack to fix near the front spring mount, the splices to reinforce, body mounts to build, and some frame boxing to do.
