When I bailed off in it and water almost came over the hood, the floor boards all filled up with water, I thought CRAP!!! Howeer I eased on through it without any problems...

This is after we came out the other side and my wife had to get the camera out and turned on.. The drain plugs are out, so it had drained down alot.. It was full.


Some Shallow Mud Puddles



After we got home!!


The old heep did really well...
you should build yourself a nice DIY snorkle

Went muddin with my YJ

Found out some very important things..First Posion Spyder body armour rocks..Have the entire kit on the YJ...but..that being said a foot deep mud hole 30 yards long and 36x15.5x15 IROK's with open windows will result with as much mud on the inside as on the outside.
Still trying to come with a plan to get the dash un-muded(?)..used a shop towel to clear away the mud so i could see the speedo and tach..whole interior is herc-lined and or/undercoated so no fuzzy carpets to deal with.
The nice electric leather seats are just fine because i knew where we were going and there was gonna be some mud flying.. got some nice seat covers,washed those slipped back on so i could drive it today...
Any tips.....other than leave the dang windows up..lol

I have not done anything to it today, but I did order a RC lift kit and other goodies For the YJ - a big Thank you to Ryan for the help.

Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out of it alive.

Found a Saturn Vue center console (gray) at the local u-pull-it that I will mount in my jeep hopefully tomorrow. No lock, but for $14.00, it has 4 cup holders and fits about perfect. I think I can mount a cheap lock too. If I mount it right the arm rest will be at the perfect level! Very exciting stuff!

Took out the sport roll cage and started prepping for the family cage that I'm gonna pick up tomorrow from the salvage yard. Just gonna drive my Jeep in and install it there! Also cut all the steel to make my sliders, just need to weld it all together! Next step will probably be pulling the brand new carpet the PO just installed before I bought it, anyone in the market for 2 month old tan carpet?

Changed fluid in the front and rear diffs. Upgraded to a twenty gallon fuel tank since I had a little time.

Finally

ProComp 8179 (15x8) with DC Mud Country 31 x 10.5 x r15! I replaced BFG 31 x 10.5 x r15's...

They look... way too big!

Will a little shackle lift make this better? I'm already on a RC 3"

2.5 RC Lift and a long drive

Installed a 2.5 lift. After much swaring and pounding and cutting got all the old off and put the new on. Once finished I took the doors off and went for a 2 hour dive smiling the entire time.

This is my first post, though I've been reading the forum for a while. Here's the 1993 YJ I bought 3 weeks ago with before and after pics of the new wheels and tires. I'm getting it ready for Hungry Valley this weekend. If anyone's going to be there this weekend I'd love a trail partner.

Before - BFG Rugged Trail 31x10.50x15:


After - GT Radial Adventuro M/T 33x12.50x15:


-Slim
