So picked up my first jeep back in january. Before that i had a 73 blazer on tons and 42s. It was a little too rediculous to drive on the road, didnt fit down most trails i wanted to go on, and had a ton of rust. But it was fun. I picked this jeep up to have something i could drive around, to and from the trails, as well as take my wife and Kid with me.
It is a 95 with the o so peppy 2.5 4 banger. 5speed with a teralow 4.0 kit on the 231 with a SYE.
4.5in rubicon express extreme duty lift. Spring under. d30 front d35 rear with 4.56s. 33in bfg km2s with only 1k miles. Also a brand new 33in baja claw spare. And it has a hardtop wich is nice.
has some sort of way too loud muffler with no tailpipe that needs to be addressed.
I need to move some mounts around to mess with the shackle angle because it sucks right now. It starts up quick, runs nice and the MPFI is so much better than carb garbage.
Ive been reading and searching and trying to figure out what springs to shove under it and how to go about it. I think spring over is the way to go, but i dont want to waste money on these axles to replace em later. i think 35-37 is max tire size i would want so i have been researching the 8.8 ford rear and still undecided on the front.
Im gonna fab up some sliders for it, and make some rear corner armor as well as tube fenders. I do not want to be a buy and bolt on guy as i think that route sucks.
anyways here are some pics.
