1995 Jeep YJ Build

This project began with a 4 cylinder 5-speed 1995 Jeep Wrangler. It had a Pro Comp 3 inch lift, Dick Cepek wheels and 33/12.5/15 tires. It was cool for a while but didn't have the WOW factor, so we decided to cut it apart and turn it into fully built Monster of a Jeep

We started doing some research online and found a company that seemed to have everything we needed. We contacted them and parts began to flow in. We added fenders, step bars, corner guards, 4" rear fender flares and a new cage.

With the added weight of the all this steel we figured more power was needed so enter the LS1 engine. While we added the LS we decided that Dana 60 axles would be a cool addition. The Dana 60s arrived and we just couldn't install them with the original Pro Comp lift, so we purchased a 3 link front and 4 link rear kit. To top it off we added King coil over shocks with dual rate springs.

Received our new Raceline Monster wheels and Nitto Grappler tires. Got them mounted up and now it's time for vehicle dis-assembly.

Frame and cage are powder coated. Body is painted so I guess it's time for reassembly.
