Well, this is my 6th Jeep believe it or not! Just picked it up over the weekend. My plan here is to build a (PA street legal) 1 ton crawler. To keep it legal in PA I'm going to get the 1 ton axles narrowed down to close to stock width. I'm going to make some tube fenders, and run 37"+ tires. SOA suspension and remove the body lift.
Here's the scoop on the YJ..
- 4.7L stroker with ~25k miles on it
- 280K on the body
- AX-15 trans
- 231 transfer case with no SYE
- Stock axles and gears
- 4" Rough Country Lift (add-a-leaf and shackles?)
- 2" Body lift
- Nearly new 35" MT/R w/ Kevlar
Im going to wheel it this fall a few times at Rausch Creek Offroad Park, then some time around the beginning of November its going to go under the knife. The plan is to have it finished back on the trails by spring.
Heres a shot from the drive home, oh how I missed those wiper blades.. NOT!
