Mwyatt's WJ Build

I got this jeep over the summer when my '94 4Runner decided to die on me. This is much better! I didn't document the build very well but plan on it with the rest of the project.

It started off like this:


And is currently like this:


Completed Modifications:
IRO 3" Lift
15x7 Cragar Soft 8s
31x10.5 GoodYear Wrangler Authority's
Painted cladding
Added Factory Tow Hitch and Front Tow Hooks
Thrush Welded Muffler
Mesh Grille
Solid Front Diff Cover
KOR 3/4" Spacers
Carolina Driveline Front Driveshaft
JCR Stage 3 Sliders
IRO Bar Pin Eliminators
IRO A-arm spacer
K&N Intake tube with Amsoil Dry Dilter
ZJ washer bottle
Transmission Cooler
Cut Fenders

Things Still Left To Do

Tank Tuck
mtnmarc's axles
Stereo/speakers replacement
4.5" Coils
Long arms
35s




This thing is fun!

Nice job on the cladding, it makes the Jeep look WAY better. I also like the Metallica Sticker.

Patrick,

I like your jeep! I'm having a rear "clunk" when ever I go over bumps and what not. Is that what you had? Did the A arm spacer fix that or do you recommend just getting the whole new arm? I'm leaning towards the latter.

Whats your girlfriends parents last name? I might have heard of them.

thanks! and yea ur clunk is most likely that rear a arm ball joint, you could replace that or upgrade the whole arm and not have to worry about it again

my gfs parents are the Lester's, they havent lived there that long though, her dad took a job out there a few years ago.

Ordered my muffler today, hopefully I'll be able to put it on this weekend. I also made some changes to the "list". I'm gonna go with the IRO A-arm and decided to buy some BPEs soon

Patrick, dont know them

Put in the Thrush muffler. It sounds pretty good. "Mellow" on the noise but a nice deep tone.

So I think I might be stepping up to 5.5 IRO front coils to level the ride out. Currently the front sits a little low.....just the typical WJ stance. I know you said you wanted to step up to 4.5" coils so I might have a front set for sale. Let me know if your interested. Not sure what the price would be yet, but anything reasonable would do.
