Looks like a lot of fun. I always think your YJ is more like a sleeper with the body relatively stock.
Thanks yea thats how I see it too. On sunday you wouldnt believe how many people figured it was just a long armed tj and even asked me how I swapped the older dash in.

We will have to meet up at Rausch one day, looks like you are willing to run the fun trials. Any plans to go down to bog dogs in sept?
That'd be cool pm me next time your headed out to RC. I've been debating big dogs but I dont really want to have to worry about driving the 5hrs home. So unless I can find a last minute spot on a trailer I doubt I'll make it down.

The Cove is the best spot in the northeast! Definitely go if you can find a ride! If I had something to wheel right now I'd have already signed up and began prepping.

I also threw the stock tank in the back of the jeep with a couple ratchet straps for now. Just have to extend the fuel pump wiring and it'll run again.
The brakes are almost done and I've got a couple ideas for the exhaust. I changed springs on my coilovers to 170/250 and it looks to work alot better.
I was curious what you ended up doing with your exhaust? I see you had a couple idea's but never posted anything?

Do you get exhaust smell in the Jeep?

I'll let you know if one of the 30ft-ers happens to open up.

I ended up throwing my old flowmaster muffler under the belly skid with a turndown just about where that peice of exhaust pipe ends in the picture. There really isnt much room for a tailpipe on mine everything just about hits at full bump. I did eyeball a way to get a tailpipe to just in front of the rear axle but didnt feel it was worth the effort with 5 bends in 2'. I've had the hardtop/doors on and havent hardly smelled exhuast inside the cab.



James I think you were there that day ha. I'm looking forward to the next outing over there. You drop that ledge yet?

There is an exhaust smell, but it's because it has no cat, and I think it might be a little on the rich side for some reason. Not objectionable at all. Even with the top off.

It was like that with a full tailpipe out the back too, so the turndown didn't change much.

Not yet but maybe this time. The club is going to be there on the 15th of September.
The gorge from the water tower up to the house is now doable and crazy!

We've been working on setting up the coilovers better and realized I was way over sprung. The previous 200/300 front and 175/250 rear rates are just to high and with the triple rates I'm loosing usable sprung travel. After crunching some numbers and measurements I'm goin 175/200 front and 165/175 rear with some valving adjustments down the road.

At the moment I've picked up some used coils to go 200/200 and 175/175 and the ride is way better than before. The jeep is much smoother in the rough stuff and with the dual rates slid down isnt bad at all on the highway. Now I've got to order some shim kits and a set of 165's to finish off some of the tuning.

Well we found the weak link this weekend. It's the tires. Cut one of the KM2's pretty bad. Rest of the truck worked flawlessly on all black and red trails. Axles are holding up very well. Front XJ driveshaft needs some attention before it can get wheeled again, but it held together all weekend despite some of the scary noises it was making.

Now it's not only on the same trails as the buggies but taking many of the same lines.

Here's a video from Shoot the Moon in the quarry at Raucsh Creek.

cool. It's fun to follow the buggies around in a jeep. We will have to pick a date this winter and all meet up at RC.
