Behold! the YJ_

Bought the Jeep in Dec of 05
it was all stock besides the wheels and tires



Being so close to Xmas it didn't take long before I had bought myself some "toys"


x4 KC daylighters
x2 KC fog lights


Gibson exhaust because the stock exhaust resembled "swiss" cheese


Warrior Rocksliders

next on my list was a lift...
RE 2.5" STD


Feeling that I was ready to "wheel" I brought it up to Haspin by myself (big nono)

A/T's suck in the mud and I wasn't there for very long...

a few weeks later as I'm coming back from school I start to feel a wobble...
I come home and pop off the lug covers and find...

I also find out I have two different sets of wheels...
Jeep 5 lug

and universal 5 lug


seeing as how the lugs egg shaped the holes I was on the hunt for new wheels...

scored a deal from the local tire store and ended up with 4 American Racing Mojave's (with fancy teflon coating)



I ended up scoring a winch from my uncle...


a long weekend and a few hours in the garage with the grinder and a cutting torch the old man and I had figured out how we were going to mount this haus...


U-bolts


the mounting plate


the spacers we made out of an old snowplow blade so everything would sit flush


the final product, Operation Frankenwinch deemed a success!

Nice work. Looks good.

BTW, lots of people DD their rig on 35's. 38's would be a different story though.

Remember these words: "A Jeep is NEVER done!" I think I've told myself every year "There, finally done with the Jeep"......

My YJ has finally been moved out of the DailyDriver status - not due to tire size, but due to breaking too much last summer (axles, engine, springs, etc).

I love the ride on my 38" tires!
