Thanks for the kind posts, guys. It's definitely a very clean YJ and I'm proud to own it.

I love lifted Jeeps, but I'm having mixed emotions about changing much on this vehicle. What I like about this Jeep is that it's clean and simple. I almost feel accountable for keeping it stock for the Jeep purist gods out there. Like I mentioned before, I'm more of a car and motorcycle guy, but at the same time respect all trucks and SUVs. This thing is going to be my camping and exploration vehicle.

There is something to be said about driving around in a Jeep...I love it!

Good work on the Dart. Mopars are near and dear to my heart; always have and always will be. I would either like to build a '68 Hemi Dart clone or a '69 6-Pack Roadrunner (both with a 4 speed Hurst)

Vehicles come and go, so you might have another one someday!

Curious, what is the paint color option called on my YJ? There seems to be a couple different blue options for 1992.

This is a perfect example of why I bought an old beater and fixed it up. I wouldn't even want to take that out in the rain let alone a nice, big, slimmy mud hole....

Nice find!

I would have to agree with you on this one...though, the more you fix a project up and make it nicer, the less you won't to drive it like originally intended. This is from my experience at least - I guess there needs to be a balance of utility and beauty!

One of my most favorite sounds is of a cammed 302/331/347ci small block ford. Toss that motor in a Fox LX notch....

I'm looking forward to taking this YJ on trips. I have used this site since 2008 for research. From what I have read and seen, I'm a big fan of your suspension lift. Do you happen to have any pictures you can share?

what would you like to see. I got pics of the build ...

I used Old Man Emu 36R springs all 4 corners, soem was trial and error, I had 14F up front at first, for a SUA they work great, for SOA I needed heavier so upped to 36R, OME greasable shackles, OTT Rocky road highsteer, AA, SYE, and made my own rear shft from an xj shaft... welded front with a Posi and the 8.8 is going in this spring...









a few, but got tons ...

for what you wantng I would recommed the 14 front and rear, you want just mild and keep mostly stock..

the 14 are a 2.5" lift you should not need ANY kind of SYE, or anything, maybe a tcase drop but not likely, beautiful rid, and some greaable shackles.... be a steller setup I ran this way for a couple years before going SOA... the OME springs are MAD flexy and ride like nothing else...





Hangin Loose.....almost broke my brake line...



The flexc shots are SUA, 14F fronts and 36R rears, OME greasable shackles and a 1/2 tcase drop....
