Just drove it around. It drives a TON better with the added wheelbase. That made more of a difference than i thought it would. No more rocking front to back and up and down when i go over bumps.

It does sway like a mother around turns, but I like that. :haha:


Springs are settling a little too it seems. Some poser shots. I need to extend my brake hardline about a foot back because right now it is just enough to let me drive around or just drop my pass tire.









And My springs like it, because they are smiling.





From what I have read the XJ springs have no issues going into negative arch. That was about an inch or so from full bump, I will be making a bumpstop to help em out a little, as well as keep the tires out of the tops of my fenders.

So I got some new seats :thumb:

Corbeau baja ss and some harnesses.



And I went wheelin. The new wheelbase made a giant difference. A ton more flex in the rear as well. It also rides better. Totally satisfied.

I cant wait to do something in the front now.

Missed something ??

When did you go from your '95 Grill to your round headlight grill ???

Never did like those rectangular headlights on my '95 either !!!!

It sure helps that you can weld really well -- I am just starting out welding
with my small mig welder; but it will not do very thick stock.

LOOOOOKS GREAT -- keep posting , so I can get some tips.

Wipped up some quick and dirty seat mounts. In the next couple weeks I will be doing the cage, and the seats will be mounted to that. This was because I dont wanna sit in my old ones any longer

Thanks!


Its actually a fairly easy swap to the TJ grill. It was one of the things at the top of the list when I picked this YJ up.

rebuilt my set of xj leaves with a military wrap. got another stock main xj and cut one eye off and wrapped the big eye on the small forward eye of my springs. Put new pads and redid the spring clamps, as well as sanded and painted em. Axle wrap is almost all the way gone, the horrendous swaying is almost all the way gone, and they look %300 more durable. Downside is my rear end is higher than i want. So i need to redo my front hangar up a touch to bring the height back down.







And then had some fun
