Since I got the 02 I had to rebuild the motor which cost me way to much I also swapped out the all wheel drive for a 242hd with a sye from iron rock off-road

How did you like the 4.7 vs 4.0?? Really want to find a WJ for my GF.

I like my YJ how I like my whiskey, on the rocks with just a touch of color!

The 4.0 did really well in its stock form I never had a problem with that jeep only reason why I sold it was I got hit and insurance totaled it out and I found my v8 for a good deal. My 4.0 had plenty of power to get me around in the dunes thoe and have fun pics of my 4.0 below

A long time ago when I was out wheeling at night I beat the side of the jeep up pretty good or more than I would have liked to. So I need some sliders for sure.

I think I'm just going to cut the rockers out completely and do some 2x6 or 2x8 .120 wall square tube for rocker panels. I want to be able to solidly attach them so I started with some 3x3 3/16 angle iron that my buddy gave me. I cut to size and Welded to the unibody that way I can just weld on to that when the time comes to make my rocker panels/ sliders
