A little background: I had been wheeling a mild built XJ for the past few years and it was starting to get tired from the abuse of wheeling. While the XJ made a great trail rig it needed a lot for the trails I was starting to run. I decided to part ways with it and picked up a well built 92 YJ from a fellow club member.
Now the fun stuff. the staring point
1992 YJ 2.5L 5 speed
170att power master alternator
Dana 30 superior axles, lock right locker, BDS rock guard and 4:10s
Ford 8.8 with Trac Lock welded, Solid diff cover and 4:10
NP231 with an AA SYE kit
JCR 1 ton UTK steering
5in BDS springs with 1 1/4 warrior shackles
Wheel base stretched to 96inchs or so
Longer travel shocks with custom rear shock mounts
Warn rock rails, front and rear bumpers
15x10 Pacer wheels with 33 13.5 Pitbull rockers
Zenon extended TJ style fenders
and some offroad lights
Getting her home
Rear shock tower and hi lift mount
Step 1 was changing out a broken window frame. now up to 3 different colors on her.
Next up was losing the extended shackles as it made the rig too high for my taste. (I like them low with lots of flex) So i threw on a set of stock height boomerang style shackles and lowered her about an inch. (thanks to CT custom metal for making them for me)
I decided I wanted something a little nicer to hold when I was shifting. So out went the stock knobs and in went a pair of pool cues
i had an issue with the steering box cracking the frame
Got that fixed last week a new chunk of 1/4 plate welded in took care of the problem. I've also pulled the warn front bumper off and will be replacing it with an AtoZ builder bumper.
