Molly: WyoZJ's Build thread

Figured I better start a build thread. I wont bore everyone with what I've done in the past (bb, short arm lift, sye, regear, lockers, etc etc)
Here's Molly as she sits today


1994
4.0
NP231 w/Rugged Ridge short shaft SYE
4.88 gears with Aussie Lockers
Trail Ready Bumpers
Warn 9500
Interco 33x12.50 on simulated beadlocks

Coming soon is IRO long arms and 7" coils

Today long arms, shocks, and all the rest of the goodies showed up from Iron Rock.

I can powdercoat for free at my buddies shop and I'm thinking about powdercoating all the arms and coils burnt orange but I'm not sure I want to take the time to strip what is already powdercoated.

P.S. got some little projects for the winter

Did you go with adjustable arms or fixed length?

Going to be a fun winter! Just don't roll it with 7" and 33"s.

They're fixed. When I ordered they didnt give me the adjustable option, so I kinda forgot. And i've talked to CLNinja and they're pretty udjustable on the crossmember. We'll see what happens. I can always chop em and put threaded joints on. FCZJ, you should come up for the install

That may be a possibility.

If I were you, I would spend the 100$ for a pair of thread in Johnny Joints and some tube bungs and make it adjustable NOW. Seriously now is the time to do it before they go on.

Ooohh I thought only the fronts were non adjustable... hmmm.... maybe just do the fronts for now then, that only requires two joints and two bungs. (Threaded inserts)

Well, as long as you are thinking about it, this seems to be the best price for flex joints, and with the jam nut, cool.
