Another YJ Build......GenRight Style

This is my story and I'm sticking too it.


Here are a few picture when I got started.

That looks nice. I wish I had the money and skills to go SOA. I think jeeps just look amazing SOA not to mention the ground clearance would be nice. My gas tank is still pissed about the last rock that slammed into it. Nice looking jeep though

Sorry, I guess I should explain better.

SOA is coming off, it's been good for me for the last couple of years but now it's time for something better.

Front will be stretched forward 2" and have GenRight's 3 link set up with King coilover's and King air bump stops.

PSC Extreme hydro assist kit with high steer arms, Reid flat top knuckles, and GenRight's cross over steering.

Rear is going to be stretched backward's 6" and have GenRight's Double Triangulated rear 4 link set up, King coilovers, King air bump stops and GenRight's Crawler gas tank. I made a new custom full belly skid.

Also have to buy new Rocker guards and rear corner guards because of the stretch.

Yeah I dont have the mad skills you do. I would still just be happy with SOA. I love SOA jeeps they just look like they were meant to be that way from the start. I prefer leafs over coils I am not sure why I just do. I used to have a TJ and it got totalled. Now I have my YJ and I like it much much better. I guess I just like loud obnoxious vehicles though.

I drool over this kit all the time....but not at the price tag. One of my fav episodes of Xtreme 4x4 is when they did this kit to a TJ.

One question tho:

What are you doing with your current corners?

This is when I was putting the cross member in and making the new 1/4 thick skid plate. My old TeraFlex skid was 3/16 and was beat to hell, hoping the thicker one will hold up better.

The frame was spead out a little more than it should have been, she's showing her age. lol
