Full Width White YJ BUILD

OK guys this is my first post on this forum, but not my first build. Ive had a xj in the past and a fully built toyota buggy, but after i got the buggy finished i hated the fact it had to sit in the garage and i only could enjoy it when i trailered it to the trails and also i have a 2 year old son i want to start taking wheeling . So i decided to sell the buggy and look for me a yj wrangler to build. i wanted to build something really strong that i could enjoy on and off the trails. so i ended up with a 1992 yj buggy with a inline 6 and a auto trans. i love this thing . im hoping there will be guys on this forum that can guide me thru this cause i have never built on that drives on the road also. so here we go.

Well after the first trip out at The Flats I really missed my lockers that I had on the yota . So I decided there needed to be a change and a big one ! So the plan is 1 ton axles out of a 78 F250 , factory yj leafs , and lockers front and rear .

Why stock springs if you don't mind me asking?? Because iirc don't a lot of guys run the 52" leafs on the yj's

Well with xj springs you need to move your gas tank and don't have the money for that right now. I'll prob stretch it a couple inches in the rear with some waggy springs later.

Just curious that's all I didn't realize you had to move the tank like I said I will be watching this and asking questions because I'm set on building a yj buggy for my next project
