Side profile pic I forgot I took. Tools and fat *** dog in the back aren't helping the rear clearance much.

Looks awesome, loved your build thread!
I just moved to Puyallup, and picked up a new rig recently so we'll have to meet up at a trail sometime, show me around!

Thanks! Where'd you move from? I worked just outside of Puyallup for several years so I know the area pretty well. I'm not much of a trail guide but there's not a whole lot out there that our rigs couldn't handle.

Thanks! It might look 'clean' in pics but she's got her share of light scratches and slightly warped sheet metal. Nothing I'm too concerned about really, but I should probably give her a nice wax job one of these days. I'm not an abusive driver, but things can happen on the trail and I do my best to avoid them or fix them afterward.

My malamute's name is Niko; got him as a rescue in '07, a few months after my YJ was stolen.

Moved from spokane in August. I know this area has a ton of trails to checkout, so I'm pretty stoked. Beautiful dog btw!

My '95 radiator just bit the dust and started a slow leak. I like your new alu radiator/electric fan combo but dirtbound doesn't make a fan for my YJ.

Looking good Phillip... too bad we couldn't meet up when I was in Tacoma. Turns out my mom lives like 4 blocks away from you...small world. Next time I will plan a couple extra days and you can show me some trails.

Niko is awesome...looks like a great dog. The snow pic for your avatar is awesome!

My '93 YJ had a similar problem with the radiator. Just a tiny leak for a little bit then one morning pretty much all of the coolant was on the ground. I got a replacement from radiatorbarn.com and was pretty happy with it.

Yeah sorry about that, I didn't really think anything about Saturday and you were probably already taking off fairly early Sunday. Small world indeed.

Hope we get another good snow storm this year to play in!

Thanks. I hear ya...it's tough to save, particularly in the summer. I always found it a lot easier during the winter when you're less inclined to go on long trips and spend more money on stuff. Other than lift tickets at the slopes, I tend to hibernate with TV and football. It is 5 Mile Drive, good eye. I think that was at the first turnout.

Thanks. It just needs some minor suspension tweaking and a few accessories but I'm pretty happy with where it's at overall.

Thanks. He's not too much trouble despite his size. Kind of a big lazy cat, really. Just need to walk him 2-3 times per day.

Just found your thread and really enjoyed it. My build is very similar to yours, and the pics have helped me make a couple decisions.

Are you still using the 15x8s with the 33x12.5s? Did the 33s rub on the short arms before you got the y-links?

As for the little boost in the rear you want, I used TNT UBE and an extra OME leaf from DPG. Now I need the ACOS to level everything back out.

Thanks...figured this would float to the bottom until I updated it with new radiator and fan install pics.

My rims are 15x8 with 4" of backspacing. I only had the 33's on for a couple of days before I installed the long arms but I didn't notice any rubbing. Then again all I did between then was a quick trip to get my axles regeared and then it sat in the driveway for a few days until it was done.

UBE's and AAL are a good idea, I hadn't really considered that option. I think some AAL's would probably just do it. Looks like they are a little cheaper than I thought!
