Brief history: This jeep started out as a $500 worn out stocker. Found Jeep Forum and started researching for ideas. I wheeled it for a year with a rubi 4.5" lift and 35's before really tearing into it. I found a "new" frame and started the next transformation, v8 and 3 link front. As my addiction kept growing so did the jeep. I spent forever learning about 4 link suspension and designed and fabbed the rear setup I currently have now. I also designed and fabbed the new custom cage to keep me safe with all this new capability. I have to thank my friend Kenny for doing all the welding on the rig since day one, and Mark for machining those must have parts. Hope you all like it.

I had built my YJ to 35s and ~5 lift and was heading towards tons and a Cummins. After some time wheeling it hard, and retiring it from DD duty due to the 12mpg, I decided to take it in a unique direction. My goal was to lower it substantially while minimizing the downsides of the LCG build. I wanted a Jeep that would be capable of hardcore trails yet still reasonably pleasant on the road and affordable enough to make my DD again. My jeep now rides and handles significantly better and gets 27mpg. The only thing stock is the brake master cylinder (for now) and the square headlights (forever)!

I hope the pictures in the poll don't upset anyone. I'm a little loopy on medication at the moment.
