CRJEeP wj on tons build

Here's what I have for my build. I started with a semi built full size Chevy, then a friend and me built some 1tons for it and a bunch of other stuff. Then after we had some issues with the truck we decided we needed something 4 door and my wife wanted something comfy. So we got this.[URL=http://s1234.photobucket.com/user/Ez_pen/media/P8053925.jpg.html][/URL

It was really nice, we parked the truck and took it to a 4x4 only campsite right away, it's got leather and power, a v8 and 242hd. It drove great. So I decided to tear down the Chevy and build the wj up

I hooked up hydro assist first by tapping the stock box and using a trail gear ram. Then raised the gas tank a bit. Put on a roof rack I had on my wk. hooked up on board air using dual viar compressors and a 5gal tank. I used a Dakota digital box off my transmission speed sensor to get my odo and speed working. Then I built my rear bumper.

Here's the bumper finished. Next I built rock sliders and strengthened the frame.

Welded them to my beefed up subframe with 1/4in plate and bolted them to the pinch seam.

I had my helper do some painting, but he painted the door on accident, so I quickly cleaned it up.

And here's my supporting family, they love our jeep. My son really has to pee but he's still smiling. And my wife's knocked up, so we have a little girl on the way.

I'm not sure how to make the pics smaller. The lift is some we're around 13" I guess. Leafs were on my truck and I liked them so it was cheap and easy to switch them over. There not great for the unibody but they work, and that's another thing I might change in the future.

youll have to re-size them before posting. any plans to cut the rear fenders? i dont think youll ever stuff those 42's but it should get you an extra 2'' or so of clearence. looks awesome though man
