Locking pin

There are lucking pins on my Jr.
The pin goes through the elongated hole in brace, into hole in FG rim.
And my front window is the side-slide opening kind.( w/ screen)

Bob, I was already planning on going with a straight axel, and springs plus adding cross-members, basically following Larry&Carrie build.

Any thought on Axel's and springs from Tractor Supply or Northern Tool?

I'm not finding any CJ builds that have gone with a torsion axel any thoughts?

I've been thinking about doing that since I want to add Brakes, and that means replacing the existing axle because there aren't any brake drum mounting flanges on it. I gotta check into what it will cost me here in San Diego.
