Well I have been busy as all get out the last couple weeks ordering parts and more parts. I finally got the OK to start the mods on the YJ because I just bought my wife a new Jetta(2001).
So here it goes... I opted for the R.E. Extreme duty kit, SYE, and drivelines at the local drive line shop(Drivelines Direct).
As for wheels and tires I went with Marsh Racings Mod racing style bead locked 15x10's with the new style Goodyear Wrangler 33x12.5x15's. JKS quick disconnects and telescoping rear track bar. Randy's ring and Pinion helped me out with gearing and decided to go with 4.56's which I hope to instal this weekend. Safari snorkel for those rainy Washington State crossings.
I am looking into some interior upgrades like the Beard 5 point Comp seats front and rear along with the harnesses. The motor has been done for a while now and will go in since I have the Jeep down, I started with a junkyard core 4.0L and bought the Hesco 4.0L stroker kit to give it a bit of pep. I still would love to get Hescos supercharger kit for a little bit more poop. It has been a hard road though, just me working on it pretty much but that is going to pay off when my "Baby" is all done. This is the 3rd Jeep I have built the other two are the 76 CJ's that I had. I hope to complete the project over the next couple months as I still have to work my regular job and find time for the family. I am just wondering about the tranny though, an AX-15 that I rebuilt about 3 months back or the NV4500, if I go with the 4500 that means transfer case too, that is getting spendy. I think for the time being I stay with the stock tranny and case. Later I can make the changes I need to them. Well I just thought I would fill you all in on what I have going. Like they say it's a Jeep® thing and you just wouldn't understand, although I realize you all here do!!! I must say just reading alot of the post in here has helped me alot in the process so far and thanks to all those that have posted. I will try to keep you all updated. Thanks again...
