The November YJ of The Month Contest winner is: 4BangerYJ

Congratulations for this month goes to 4BangerYJ with 37% of the vote. Was a very good contest this time around. I look forward to the future contests with some rule changes and some prizes lined up. Thank you all that participated.

And now here is 4BangerYJ's story:

I bought my Jeep off the lot in Oct of 95. It was about as stripped as you could get. I went thru a number of lifts and tire sizes before ending up with what I have.

The Deaver springs are awesome! Without a doubt the best springs I have run. They flex well and the ride on the street is very nice. Very important to me since it gets driven and not trailered.


They have lots of thin leaves so I went with U bolt flips front and rear.

The Klune/D20 are protected by a custom made crossmember. I like the open design to make changing fluids easier and keeping an eye on things.

Here is a shot of the twin sticks and Klune shifter.

The front hoop is a Smittybuilt for a CJ7. I added the middle spreaders and the dash bar.

The front end is a HP D44 from a 77 F250 I narrowed it to Waggy inners. From the knuckle out is F150 to get 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern. It's filled with Alloy USA shafts, Bobby Long joints, 5.38's and a Detroit. I sent everything to be cryo'd for a bit of added strength. The hubs are Warn premiums, and a Riddler diff cover. I put the steering on top of the knuckles to clear the springs. It uses GM TRE's.

The rear axle is a D44 from a 87XJ. It has Alloy USA shafts with dual pattern, 5.38's and a Detroit.
Genright tube fenders, rockers and gas tank was added. I used the gas tank to stretch the WB 4 inches along with the custom Deaver springs.

The bumpers and tire carrier and rack I made.



Thanks a ton for all the votes!
I'd be glad to answer any questions.

Thanks everyone!
Here are a few shots of the tire carrier.
This upright tube gets bolted to the tub on both sides of the Jeep.

On the inside of the tub I build this bracket to add some strength.

I cut some tube at an angle for mounting the highlift.

I got the mounting hardware from the local hardware store to mount the 4 way tire iron. I always hated it rattling around in the Jeep. The axe is held in place by some Quickfists.

The hinge is made from bronze bushings I got at the hardware store. There is 2 sets of these. It keeps the rattles at bay!

Origainally I had a stock TJ tire carrier mount bracket but it rattled and cracked. So I changed it over to this set up, and it's much better.
