the shifters are cool. im going to get the shifters from northwest fab, they look like they have some more thought into there fabrication and look better to me

last week I swaped in a rebuilt 2.5 to keep my yj running on the the road. ive put over 250mi on it sofar and it runs great!

I want to stretch my wheelbase a little bit so im looking into front wagoner springs to swap into the rear of the yj. this will give me a 2" stretch and the springs are only 1" longer overall so it wont change my shackle angle drastically. I have found out that stock waggy springs give 2" lift so I will need 2" waggy lift springs

I havent been on here much but i have been jeeping alot in the past couple months. I took two trips to rausch creek offroad park.

Took a trip in early august and had some major issues. The rear ring gear bolts all backed out and i had to leave the trail in fwd. i drove there and its a 3-4 hour drive so i took the center section from the front 9" and swapped it into the rear all in the hotel parking lot (what fun it was)

Fast forward a month or so and i finally got around to ordering the parts to have 4wd again. When the bolts backed out of the carrier the flange for the ring gear bent therefore ruining my detroit locker so i had an extra open diff that i used and i rebuilt the front center section (used to be the rear till i swapped them in the parking lot).

Sounds like some bad luck! I was pretty anal about cleaning the gear oil out of the RG holes and using loctite, hoping mine stay in there!

Mine were brand new gears and bolts. I used the loctite provided but it dident seem to set right. I put new bolts in the front and rear when rebuilt the front and used red loctite and used the impact gun to tighten the ring gear bolts to ensure they never back out again.

Sorry i have not been posting alot. I went on a couple more wheeling trips to rausch creek in the past couple months i post alot on my instagram its @wedwhyjay.

3 months ago i bought a 1974 jeep j20 that i plan on fixing up and towing my yj with it to the trail.

Two months ago i was coming back from a sunday wheeling trip at rausch and my trans blew up on the yj i only had 4th gear and i drove over 60 miles to get about two miles from my shop before i parked it and had it towed to my shop. What a crazy ride that was, i was alone and in the middle of jersey on i78 at 930 pm luckily i was not completely stranded ended up being the input shaft gear shearing almost half its teeth.

Ill be posting some more of my adventures today stay tuned

After my trans self destructed i was going to just replace the ax5 but i decided not too. Why not upgrade! So i was going to get an ax15 but i couldn't get one for a reasonable price. My friend had bought a nv3550 for 450$ with 35k on it and he was debating on getting a 6 speed nsg370. A couple days later i found him a nsg for 500 bucks! We went to get it and he sold the nv3550 to me. I wanted to upgrade from the 231 also and I've wanted a dana 300 for some time now. I looked for a little over a month before finding one locally for $250! I also scored a brand new soft top from the same guy for another 200. The last part i needed was a bell housing from a 2.5l dakota witch i got off ebay for a reasonable $150.

I threw in some pictures from the weekend after thanksgiving, me and my friend hector went on a trip with long island wrangler to rausch creek. It happened to snow the day or two before so we got to wheel in 4" of fresh snow! We all drove up in a big group 20 or so. When we arrived somehow i got appointed to guiding a group of 13 jeeps and two of them were stockers. Had a good time for most of the day then we broke into two groups i went with a couple of my friends to run some harder blue trails. On sunday of that weekend me and my friend hector ended up going off on our own to run "O" trail at rausch its a green with some black sections. It was snowy and slick so we just stayed on the green sections. Theres a small hill that has a hole in the right side and a tree at the top of that side and i made it up fine but my friend clipped the tree stopping the right front wheel and his other tree tires spun causing his right rear tires to fall into the hole and he almost went over. I strapped up to his front bumper and pulled him safely back to earth.

More to come!!

I started to build the tmr transmission crossmember until i ran out of flux core welding wire. I also received my clutch disc and pilot bushing. Transmission and transfer case should be in the jeep in a couple days

I finaly got arroud to putting the transmission and transfer case in so i could see how much of the floor i had to chop up. I measured how much i had to cut and got at it. I thought i would have had to cut more inder the seat mount but i ended up not. I did have to make the tunnel wider for the double cardigan shaft. I started to make the template for the raised floor out of cardboard. I am going to include a removable piece above the dana 300 vent tube so i have somewhere to fill the case from.

I finished welding the crossmember and mounted it up. It all ended up being half an inch higher than i thought, but now i can fit a flat skid across the frame.

Cable shifters arrived today from north west fab. Im still waiting on the cables.

Measured the frame height an its at 23"
