T&T Project CLY-J

Time for a T&T Customs project of a different sort.

After attempting to push the Low Wagon to its limits our GM, Rod, decided he wanted to build something that had a real "frame" underneath it .

The build plan.......

Begin with a 94' YJ, discard the YJ front clip and use a CJ front clip. Rod's been used to the cargo room of his XJ and has a couple boys so added space is also desired. Our solution for that is to add 15" between the door opening and the wheelwell making the tub the same length as an LJ while retaining a nice departure angle. The YJ frame will of course get stretched accordingly and suspension duties will be fullfilled by our YJ Rock-Tek coil conversion, with a few tweaks to account for the added length

Other specs include,
- T&T Fenders & Corners w/ 3" flares
- T&T Guardian sliders
- T&T Guardian front bumper
- T&T High Clearance rear XMBR
- T&T Cage
- Front HP Dana 44/60 Hybrid w/ 5.13's and 35 spline ARB & T&T axle truss
- Rear Ford Truck 8.8 w/ Moser 9" housing ends, 35 spline spool & 35 spline alloy shafts & T&T mounts
- 3.8 Atlas
- PSC Extreme Duty Hydraulic Assist
- 17" Trailready Beadlocks
- 39" Irok Radials
- Genright YJ EXT Tank
- Warn 9.5ti

Enough words....time for pics!

The frame is rusted out so we'll get it stripped and its off to scrap. We've got one from a buddy out of Reno, NV that's rust free that we'll use instead.



Decided to take the tub and have it sandblasted, was worth every cent! We had an old welding table that'll work perfect for mocking the body up on while I repair rust spots and build the panels to reconnect the two halves.



Mocked up the corner blanks



Stay tuned as I start patching up some of the rust spots and put the tub back together.
