Brief history of your jeep and how it came to be:
-I bought this jeep completely stock with my own money 3 years ago when I turned 17. Only had 104,500k then. first thing i did was buy a lift. over the next 2 years i spent countless hours on JeepForum researching more and more. I funded and completed the entire 1 ton swap myself with the help of friends. I daily drive it 25 miles each way to work everyday and it has never let me down. Sorry I don't have any pics of wheeling it since I finished the 2 tons a month ago. Trying to work out the minor kinks first. In august I plan on conquering the mud hole that swallowed it last year when i only had a 4 inch lift with 33's!

BarryBum


My YJ is a 95 Sahara
Mods: 4 inch Rough Country Suspension Lift, Rubicon wheels with Goodyear MTR tires, modified TJ from bumper
Brief History: I had been looking for the "right" Jeep for a quite a while. My wife and I were on vacation on the coast of SC and much to her disapproval my quest for a Jeep continued while I was on vacation. I ran across this Jeep on Craigslist. It is a 95 Sahara, 5speed with 187,000 miles but it still has original paint and all original interior in immaculate condition. It was exactly what I was looking for. A girl owned, girl driven street Jeep. I went and looked at it and bought it no questions asked. Upon getting it home, I bought new top, cleaned it up and started enjoying it. I kept it all stock until this spring when I installed the lift and Rubicon wheels.

93jeepREDSOX

1993 YJ

Its a 4.0l rest of the standard stuff
8.8 in the rear
4" RE lift with 1/2" boomerage shackles
Sye with RE cv shaft
Warn bumpers front and rear
Warn skids
Hella off road lights
Herced tub
Ammo box storage
CB
33" Trxus M/Ts
A-Z rocker gurads
TJ flares

So i got the jeep when i was 17, and it had a moderate 2" lift and 32" bfg a/ts. It has been my dd and trail rig when its not broken for the past 6 years. After my first wheeling trip and i broke a couple things, i decided i wanted a bit bigger lift and tires and that included doing the sye kit and all that fun stuff. So now my wife drives, chief (grandpa was in the navy and helped with building before he passed, thus the name origin), and soon when we get a third working vehicle this will be more of just a trail rig. I remember entering in one of the first yj of the month contests a looonng time ago so hopefully everybody still like it, haha, lots of awsome jeeps in this now.

When i first got it



During the build



And how it sits now

1993 Jeep Wrangler YJ
(In Progress)
5.2L 318 Magnum Engine
AX-15 from a 1997 TJ
Np231J with 23 spline input swapped in and SYE
2.5" OME HD 036R springs on all 4 corners
On 32-11.5-15" Remington Mud Brutes (Great Tires)
mounted on Cragar 15" Black Steel wheels
Bike Shifter Hand Throttle, 3 Smittybuilt Hand Grips (Too many foreheads smacked on center Roll bar), and homemade highlift mount.
I bought the Jeep back in early 2010, my Senior year in Highschool, and have been in love ever since. When we bought it, we knew it had the infamous "Oil Spray" all over the firewall and airbox. Upon searching the internet I found Jeepforum.com, and the true addiction started from there.
My first mod was to make some bastard packs out of some S-10 and 1/2 ton springs, well these got scrapped recently and I put on some Old man Emu 036R rear springs on all 4 corners to accumulate 3.5" of lift on all 4 corners. Afterwards, I did a couple of small things around the Jeep while I threw around a couple of ideas on what to do with the Motor (2.5L at that time).
In April, I bit the bullet after doing a year and a half of research and help from some great people here on the forums and pulled that oil gun of an engine and Started my swap on my 5.2L engine that I got from a Grand Cherokee. Currently I'm just working on the wiring, a new SYE kit so I can get the T-Case back on, then it is just small stuff to put back on.
Enough Talk, more pictures

booboowv77


1989 yj
My yj has the 258 6 cylinder, mc 2150 carb, bastard packs, 33/12.50/15 with creagar V5 wheels, fresh paint job, and so much more that I am forgetting right now.
I just bought my heep in august of 2011. When I purchased it it only had 60,000 miles on it but looked like someone just dumped paint down across it. So the first thing I did was totally strip it down to bare metal and start from scratch. After 2 months of sanding and shooting I ended up with a nice shiny coat of paint, just to take it out 2 days later and scratch the hell out of it in the woods. Then over the past few months I have been doing all of the other stuff like Carb upgrade, Bastard packs, Longer shocks off multiable ford trucks, Team Rush upgrade, Nuttered, all of this thanks to JF. My current projects that I could not have done with out JF are Spare tire carrier, and 8.8 swap.

"Jake The Snake".... my jeep and i came into contact 5 years before i got her, she was in a field where we got our retarded cats at and i was like thats what i want for my first car, well skip forward 4 years... my mom had asked the owner of the land if we can keep some 4H animals on there property and they said yes and i was always around it always sitting in it and just inspecting it, well a year later on March 17th 2011(16th birthday) my parents bought it for me and surprised me with it, and we've been together ever since, but then the horrible happened i got into an accident on February 03rd 2012 (brakes failed) and i ruined the whole driver side front clip of it but i got her fixed up for the most part... and im driving her. we got some OME 36 R springs on her now and have a procomp bumper thing on it that i got from J&W jeep wreckers for a whopping $30!!!!
Also SPRINGER stands for how i got her in the spring and fixed her in the spring and how i have no shocks just straight springs for now..

That is the reason I don't put my rig in, IMO mine just never seems to rank up there with most of the ones I see on here.
