You borrowed a 10 year old's chest and took it out?

Have your fun with my shackles but I am here to tell you that after a few days of scootin around town this little YJ is WAY more fun to drive than my 98 TJ ever was! The TJ had just over 100k, Daystar 3" spacer lift, drop pitman arm and 32" BFG MT's (2 were pretty worn out though). This YJ showing almost 180k handles like a dream compared to the TJ! I will admit the TJ ride was a bit better but not a whole lot. Dont start the flaming though... I am amassing the parts to do SOA and heavy duty shackles. Im even contemplating a shackle reversal, anyone have an opinion on the shak revers?

I've ridden in jeeps with the shackle reversal and it's Cadillac! I think it's going to be one if my next mods for sure.

And sorry about the Shakula reference, it's all in good fun! It's good to see you're gonna get all Van Helsing on them! Please start a build thread!

Its all good! I know there getto big its just what I got for now. I will start an official build thread soon as I get all the parts together and the colder weather sets in. Havin too much damn fun to tear the little rig down just yet.

I have found a trans and t-case though. Damn shame a month ago I took a D44hd front and matching D60 rear to the crusher!
