My 93YJ Build/wheeling (updated with new pics 1/5/10)

I bought my 93 YJ off my uncle when I passed my road test. unfortunately I was in high school at the time and Im in college now so due to the lack of steady money flow its a fairly slow build but getting there.

This is how It sat when I got it

old rough country suspension (sagging)
old 31" all terrain tires on dented rusted rims
rusted front grill guard

I ditched the grill guard and replaced his lights with KC daylighters.
Had my first bad stuck with all 4 tires dug in, axles sitting on the ground, and pinned against a tree.

After digging and getting pulled out I finished my day.

Disconnected the sway bar and tested it out

Replaced the old suspension and put in a 4" BDS suspension lift.

Bought myself some Ion Alloy rims and Mickey Thompson 33x12.5 MTZs. Brought it to the local shop to get them mounted.

took it wheeling

got a new bumper for christmas and some new light covers.

messed around with the swaybar still connected

The 33's rubbec alot so I trimmed the fender flares. then disconnected the sway bar to go wheeling again. unfortunately no pics of the timmed fenders up close. you can somewhat see the trimmed flares in the next few pics.

took it wheeling in ice cold stuck in a deep rut on the right side while trying to push 6" thick ice out of the way

luckily I was pulled out fairly easily and rather quickly, but the cold weather led to one frozen muddy jeep. (there are mudsicles on it)

Ive got a Winch and another set of daylighters in the mail and on the way, will put up pics when installed. Also there is a possibility of either a body lift or shackle lift in the near future (just to add about another inch)

Looks good! TJ flares will give you a bigger opening in the wheel wells and probably help out your rubbing problem.

Some future plans for my jeep, all depending on if I get a good job this summer after college lets out for the semester...

first things first...

Dana 44's for front and back, locked

then looking into getting some metal cloak arch front fenders and the metal cloak back corner guard and flares

then hopefully looking into getting 35's or possibly 36's depending on the room with the metal cloaks.

(if anyone can help me out with this, ill have a BDS 3.5"/4" lift with the metal cloak fenders and im not sure what size tire will fit with still having decent suspension travel)
