Another TJ Build

Hello jf, this my first build thread.
Well for starters, I got this 1999 TJ in a trade for 93 YJ. The TJ had 121k miles with an auto trans but the YJ had 189k and mechanical issues. I couldnt refuse the deal. Title for title, the TJ was mine. The TJ was completly bone stock and had primer down the side for a parking lot side swip. but here it is after i got it painted. its got low pinion dana 30 and dana 35 in rear. 3.07 gears. (nightmare driveline haha)I bought a 5.5 Rustys 5.5 Longarm high clearance lift and an ARB snorkel to go on. and used 35in TSLs



here is the YJ for the heck of it




i cant seem to find any pics of the build on my camera anymore.

well here is the jeep with the 5.5 Longarm kit. It was kinda annoying to install. installed a 231 with a sye. luckily i had a garage with a car lift to use.

i threw on some ipfs and i sold the hard top and bought a brand new Bestop Trektop NX. best purchase i think

Heck of some flex with that large lift. How does the Rusty's feel compared to stock on the street or offroad?

Looks good, but almost looks like the rear axle could be pushed back to be more centered in the wheel well?

thanks! i thought the exact same thing. but i adjusted the rear control arms to correct length and even called rustys to verify the lengths. but I'm currently in the process of moving it back an inch along with a d44.
