Zips 2.0 my 98

Plans for it are as follows
Pull my 3.5 RE stuff over to my new jeep
Swap in the 8.25 I have
Find some 33s
Shut up and wheel it.
Forced air induction is not gonna happen till I get a lot more moneys and time.


Future plans
1 ton steering
Locker
33s


And something for any one that knows me
GM PN# is 16009886

So updates
30s are on it holy shat is the suspension dead.
8.25 is in the shop, hard to argue with a free brake job, I made some brackets for the autos racing cart.
27 with 3 inches of lift look dorky as ****.

Pic of it
Did my tail light. It was gay.

My Jeep needs a ****ing lift soon but I'm waiting on my 8.25 to be done. It's going to be 3 weeks but that gives me time to make money. And buy some 33s
Pans are to sell my old jeep shell and put the money into building my 88 motor. The 98s motor is getting tired. Ideas For a simple build on that?


I can get some 35 boggers for $400 idk if that's a good idea though. They break ****.

skinnys though 33x11.5 on 16x8 cragars for $600

My old jeeps going to scrap this week I am pulling the 4.0 tomorrow.
The axle is already out and I need the money from both the scrap and the body as I am unemployed most likely.

Simple jeep builds usually don't involve strokers lol. I'd say just swap in a rebuilt engine or a lower mileage one.

And don't even think about going to 35's with all stock axles. You'll break everything.

I have a spare engine with 135k on it so why not poor mans stroker it?
I'm not going to 35 boggers I decided it was to much money for me to spend as I'd break way to much stuff. I'd do 35s if I wanted to Regear and or lock. But then that opens it up to why not lock a toothpick and a 8.25 an do the gears? But It
Would make sense to go bigger. That's a whole can of worms I don't want to think about.

Current plans as of now get new job and get paid for the scrap on the old jeep. Get a new job with a boss who is a bit less drunk. And actually does what he says.
Then Aussie and some tires
I'll figure the engine put as it needs to get done.

So the poor 88 is almost stripped but
Shocks brake lines and trackbar are ready for the next jeep
Coils are out and ready to go into the next one... For the rear Im thinking some autozone shackles with a factory leaf bastard pack

Also the engine stand fit in the back of the jeep no problem
\


Dont tell the jeep but I went to porsche race day

My uncles car is 59 I was not driving today but he had an issue with the tires so this happened

Could have been way worse


Also @IBjeepin95, I went out and played in some old *** dirt roads its fun to go retardly fast down them
