Jeep Envy

This is a mirrored build thread I have going on another forum. due to questions and requests, I am running it on JF as well. Another JF member StreetBikeCustoms will be answering many of the questions. Most of the suspension parts as well as the design is his.


My name is Poke and I have Jeep Envy. It started with a simple CJ, then a YJ, then the Jeep Envy hit me. This is my attempt to mitigate some of my envy.....

This is my junk now. 8.8, herced, oba, whatever....








The plan... Keep it simple and go big. Some parts are used and you will recognize them, others new. the axles are junk yard I cleaned up and rebuilt.

'79 F350 Front - spartan
'93 10.25 rear welded
5.13's
39.5's
12inch stretch
XJ bastard packs <- you will recognize these
hydro assist
leaving the 4.0/AX15/Np231(for now anyway )

The unknowns;
Fuel Cell
might add more cage
seats & harnesses or just leave the grand am seats alone
Driveshafts
rear seat options - thinking of a junkyard third row out of something.

At this point. I have no clue what to do... never messed with a Dana 60, much less one in this kinda shape. Hell I have never even changed a bearing before I start wire wheeling and call East Coast Gear and Mikes Parts...

At this point the

axles have been sent off to get the 5.13's installed. When they get back I need to put the hubs on the front and put the rear disc conversion on the sterling.


the custom XJ packs, hangers, perches, antiwrap bar, hydro assist ram, astro van steering box are all showing up here today on a pallet


Next steps for me...

remove the stock yj steering box and start the front frame stretch.

Issues log date...

had to cut my skid off and broke 3 nutserts

transfer case linkage will no be stock. the NP231 I got with the JB SYE, the shift arm is....upside down

You are an ambitious man Poke, wished I had that sort of "garage time!"


BTW the strength of those cinder blocks is with the cells up and down, just place a wood cap on to for your jackstands.

Smoke em if you got em!

looks good, I am definitely envious just can't justify the 1 tons yet, does the sterling have good aftermarket support?

I don't want to rain on your parade but you have a very unsafe, or accident waiting to happen in your garage. By placing your jack stands on the side of the cement block. The side of the cement blocks can take very little weight.

Turn the blocks so the holes are on top, then place a board over the hole and your jack stands on the board.

Right now you have about a inch of unsupported cement holding up your Yj. Be careful.

I would say yes. The disc brake conversion was easy to find. a number of places make them. I went with Rough Stuff because I just like the products.

The gears were also easy to find. Every major manufacturer makes them as well as install kits. Gear options were everything you would expect for any common axle.

They are as strong as a 14 bolt and have a smaller diff. With 14 bolts, they hang so low you need to shave a chunk off the differencial and sometimes even the ring gear. They drag on everything if you don't. the Sterling has the clearance of a shaved 14 bolt(I dont have exact measurements to support this). That was a bonus. I like the fact that it was different. They also have bigger bearings than a 14 bolt. So for me it was an easy decision. Everything about it was equal or better than the 14 bolt except how commonly it gets used in jeeps.
