hey guys sorry about the lack of info,... i thought it would have carried over from the other thread i posted in. a quick description is inline 6, slight motor work to get me to 280 hp and 340 fpt. sye and drive shafts. axle shaft upgrades front and rear, 4:8.8 gears front and rear, and a adjustable locker rear only. rusty's 4.5 inch advanced lift, and 285/70/17 fierce attitude m/t's (33x11.5) had to do a little trimming on the front bumper. adjusted my bump stop's so i dont stuff my tire all the way up. i stop an inch short of the fender front and rear. and the measurement from hub to fender is 23 inches exactly.
i am a hudge fan of that site. their great on the phone. very knowledgeable. they just want yer jeep to be as bad *** as we all do. for me i believe it or not just have a very toned down motor. still all stock with the exception of the cam and head, header and air intake. right now its a daily driver. i want it to become my camping and winter truck. and when i get done making her better then new again. i want to start a 67 or 68 mustang project sorry to wander off topic.
i should also say i am NOT building a rock crawler. just building a very dependable light/ medium trail rig to get out and have some fun in. i have a westin grille guard and tail light guards. just waiting on my mounting brackets. ( got them used fer 150 bucks. new brackets for 80 ) i still need roof rack for my spare and lights for that as well. gonna do 4 on the light bar in front of the roof rack, 2 on the bumper guard, and 2 and the back of the roof rack. i am undecided if i want round light or rectangle. my fog lights are rectangle. so for me it makes sense to get rectangle. what are yer guy's thought's?
nice job turbo! i am definitely glad i chose the i-6 over the one that had a 4.7ho. and after doing some reading i realized what a diamond in the rough i had. i also chose the i-6 because i didn't want all that power once i threw a couple upgrades at it. i still want it to be grippy in the snowy winters we have, and not break the tires free to badly while just driving in the snow...... unless i smash on it of cores
