My YJ Build Thread
 
Since I am bored right now I decided to make my own built thread so I can just keep adding to my own thread and let everyone see all my progress in one place.
These first 2 pics are of how i got it back in April of 2005. Bone Stock

From there i slapped some 31s on:

Then I made the stupid decision on puttin 2" Lift Shackles that made my springs sag quickly
http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s...shackles-1.jpg
Added SRC front bumper, removed shackle lift, added 1"body lift, added hoodmounted hi-lift jack and Cragar Soft 8 wheels removed sidesteps
http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s...eep/side-1.jpg
Did CJ-7 tailgate conversion but i dont have pics of that right now
Herculined

And thats about where I am now

Next to come is:
Rear Bumper/Tire Carrier
BDS 2" Lift Kit
33x10.5x15 Tires
Cut shackle lift down to 1" and reinstall
Rocker Guards
Roll Cage Add-ons
Winch
Body Armor and Skidplates
New Seats

Distant Future Plans:

Why did the 2" shackles make your springs sag? :confused:

Awesome project and very nice looking Jeep, btw. :D

thanks. im not sure why. all i know is that my springs had 45,000 miles on them when i got the jeep and put the 2" shackles and then 20,000 miles later my front springs were saging about 1 to 2 inches so i blame it on the shackle lift. there really is no proof but its the only thing i can think of.

how much did the herculiner set you back, I'm thinking of investing a liner

obsessedjeeper 12-12-2007 03:38 PM

the liner was about 80 bucks at walmart i believe

how much did you use 1 Quart enough or did you need the gallon? did you brush or roll it on? looks awesome

jeep795 12-12-2007 04:17 PM

when i did mine i used less then a half gallon, then the rest just turned to rock inside the container. i should have used more though, cause it started to wear through.



NICE jeep btw! looks almost weird to see that sweet lookin bumper on such a tiny jeep :thumbsup:

obsessedjeeper 12-12-2007 04:51 PM

I got the roll on kit that had a gallon in it. the two recomended coats took less than half a gallon so i put 4 coats on and that used most of what was left.

I have a question for those of you who use herculiner: How much louder is the vehicle with the herc instead of carpet?

obsessedjeeper 12-12-2007 05:07 PM

i havent noticed any difference. i ran the factory carpet before i did the liner then i ran with out the carpet after the herc was done and i didnt notice any difference. out of curiosity i put the carpet in over the herc and i noticed a little bit of a difference, but not enough to keep the carpet in

jeep795 12-12-2007 08:15 PM

i never really ran carpet since i bought the jeep anyway... first "mod" i did was to remove the carpet and drain plugs. besides it's a jeep. i'm not shooting for a quiet show car.

ktwnxj 07-01-2010 01:22 AM
