That video is hilarious!

"Hey, this would be a good idea" (not)

At least you were coherent.

This was me... after drinking Margaritas by the pool all day,

"Hey Dave, you wanna do some night wheeling?"

Now what could possibly go wrong there?

Despite how bad it looks, it only needs two front springs, two front shackles, a fender and flare, front bumper, and shock. The frame is straight. This is a view from the other side.



Had it to a body shop on Monday. They checked the frame and said (miraculously) it was still straight.

If you look back, the springs are already OME 2.5 See the sticker? What you are looking at is rear of the front spring!



But yes, going with 3/4" boomerang shackles, and adding a 1" daystar body lift.

This stupid screw up of mine was my new tires and rims.

Live and learn.

great job on your camper by the way. Liked the thread.

Yes hurry up and get it repaired so you can video it this time and show up Dr. Marneaus. This is your thread and by golly you should be the center of attention here.

Never again, by the way.
Looks to me like you need some help.




Chris: Time for boom shackles and possibly a drink cutoff limit?

I think some of you guys would be better off on a dirt bike. I am not sure I understand why somebody would want to ruin what appeared to be a very nice little Jeep. I guess maybe that is the 60 yo in me talking though.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention I can see the needle bearings on the driveshaft. It might be munched.

I have a Banshee. The Jeep will be Ok as all the damage is bolt on. Going to have a good body shop match the fender color. Will post what it looks like repaired.

I ain't gonna do that again. Maybe something else, but not that.

IF you want a prerunner build a XJ ! It's a shame to see a YJ get trashed . On the way to the trail head I've been known to hit 60-65mph the XJ just floats along
very stable, I tried doing 15-20 in the YJ I slowed down it beat the hell out of me

What's with you XJ guys always being airborne? 99% of the time I see a picture of a Jeep flying through the air, it's an XJ.

If only I could find a 2 door XJ...
