Id love to build a buggy one day.


Id most def. say you could do it with 2.5 lift. There is not much left of your YJ to cut off anyway! lol

Maybe comp cut the rear.

I'm going to loose the flares and trim the rear more. Thinking about loosing the front fenders alltogether and hi-lining the hood.

They wont, and there are annual inspections here to boot (jeep woundnt pass as is due to wheels sticking out). But I am hoping to be posted back to Onatrio this summer. Case of beer to the mechanic and your inspection is done (as long as there are no actual safety issues) no questions and its a one time deal.

As for the highway traffic act in Ontario all it says about covering road spray, so as long as its dry, you are good. I had tubes on my TJ with no flare and 31s and 33s in the winter and never had a problem (even when pulled over for speeding).

But, the YJ isn't daily driven so I'm not too concerned about Ontario since it won't be on any major roads unless I'm dragging it behind my truck.

I love the look

Old TJ on 33s,


my YJ (waiting to get pulled over)


back on track, I think I'm going to go with boom shackles in the spring and see how that works for now, maybe a 2.5" kit in the future though

Not sure, I always ran cable. I toasted it though after running it for over 2 hours straight without stopping (end of day turning into night attempting to recover girlfriends brothers minivan that he drove down an unopened road with lots of snow)

I got it. Seems to work good for me. Mine was the original with about 75K on it so I figured I couldn't go wrong for less than $30.

Thanks

sorry for my lack of questions/responses/appointment bookings but works was over so I left.

The smitty one looks like a good bang for the buck. I just picked up a local brand one (titan 10,000lbs) with greasable snatch block and wireless remote for under $500. Its solid.

Barry, I run the perf 2.2 steering stabilizer. I replaced the stock one so obviously it was going to be better but my steering is much tighter now and drives like a dream. Just my two cents.
