3/4 ton YJ

What better to do when in the office "working"!>? the day before Thanksgiving then write up a thread about my heep.

Anyways, I had a 79 CJ5, I paid 300 bucks for a couple years ago and spent a few months breathing life back into her. Literally, 2 days after I got it ready for tags and title, my buddy hit me with post on pirate for a 91 YJ. So, in less than 2 days, I managed to find a buyer for my CJ5 and gathered up the funds for the YJ. I trailered my CJ5 from Chesapeake VA to Staunton VA, where I exchanged keys for 2000 dollars and then drove out to Roanoke and picked up my new YJ (and handed all that money promptly over). Trailered it back home. The PO swamped the transmission and had it towed home. PO left the jeep sitting for 8 months with the trans & tcase out... this is where I come in... I picked up a new to me transmission from a fellow JF member. I herc'd the tub, swapped out the posi lok for a 1 piece D30 shaft, bought a 4.10 disk 8.8 for the rear. I slapped the transmission between the frame rails and been driving the heck out of it for a year and a half.

Specs when I picked it up:

91 YJ
4.0 EFI
TF 999
Atlas II transfercase 4.3:1
HP D30
posi lok
Locked & trussed D35 rear.
4.10's in both
herculined tub
diamond rocker & corner guards
MORE front bumper
Rokmen rear bumper/tire carrier
Full cage, tied into frame
On board air
Warn 9500hsi winch
4" lift
Skyjacker t-case drop
5: 33x12.5x15 Pro Comp Mt's on alloy wheels
Swaybar Quick disco's
Pro comp extended stainless steel brake lines
Hella headlights & hella driving lights
Xenon 6" flares

I wheeled it like this a few times... it did decent offroad and like I said, me and my wife drove the snot outta the thing.

But it just got worse from there... I started collecting parts...

I have a buddy who owns a hot rod shop and I have a bender, plasma table, and welder... so I decided it was time to sack up & go SOA. I found a smoking deal on some axles so I picked up 79 F250 full width HP44 and D60. Since my jeep sees a lot of street time I needed to keep it slightly narrower. So I snagged some H2's. Over the last year or so I have steadily collected parts. 2 sets of FSJ front springs, Aussie locker for the 44, VA4x4 steering arms, 12" travel Bilstein 5125's, corbeaus 4 points, 1 ton TRE's.... yadda yadda.

Then last weekend got a wild hair and started tearing parts off the heep and by the end of the day ended up with this...

I gotta figure out how to stuff those shocks under the rear, finish plumbing brake lines and figure out which pitman arm I need. If I can ever get that fricken nut off the steering box!

Well yeah, you're right... it is a 1 ton 60 FF rear and an F250 HP44 front.

I got all my perches burned in, driveshafts bolted up. Mounted my 12" travel bilstein 5125's up front... but I am trying to figure out how I am going to mount them in the rear without cutting the tub. I might be notching the rear framerail... we'll see.

Aside from the rear shocks, I am waiting for my brake lines to come in.

A little brake line tech incase anyone does this kinda swap in the future... I am running the stock 3/4 ton dual piston calipers in the front and K20 calipers in the rear. For brake lines, I plan on running Dodge 3500 passenger lines for up front, they will bolt up to the dual piston caliper and are 35" long (plenty of room for flex). For the rear drop line I ordered an 87 dodge W250 rear line which is about 10" longer than stock yj rear drop line then standard 3/16ths hardlines from the rear drop line to monte carlo flex lines which will bolt up to the K20 calipers. I ordered all of them off the web for like 50 bucks shipped. Just the Dodge 3500 lines alone are 20 bucks each at the local parts store.

Great build up. What winch are you running on the front and have you beefed the frame up yet?

I kicked around the idea of a 5.2/aw4 swap out of a grand cherokee... but for right now I am gonna leave the 4.0 alone. I am however going to rebuild my TF999

2 sets of front full sized jeep wagoneer springs. I am running the stock hangars in the stock locations. I do have the springs flipped for stretch in the front and rear. pushed me out to about 99" hub to hub. I do plan on running shackle reversal here soon though.

yep... I got them off of Rock Auto.

Front lines : H380344
Rear drop line: H106330
Rear flex line: H36847

and get 2 pieces of pre flared 3/16ths hardline and you should be good to go.

Yeah man, stock hangar locations. FSJ springs have an offset center pin, one way is the same as a stock YJ spring and flipped 180 is for a 2.5" stretch. The sit nice and flat when SOA and left me with a good shackle angle too.
