Indyrubi's TJ build

I didnt make a complete build thread back then cause I just didn't think about it at the time.

Its been a work in progress ever since I got it new in 04.
Put a 4" lift and 33's on her acouple of weeks after getting it.



Decided the 4" wasn't enough and went to a 6" and 35's, oh yeah and some tube fenders after bashing in the driverside front fender.




Hammered on her for awhile and found that the lower control arms just could handle the abuse. The stock rear air locker couldnt take it either. So after the second stock locker failed I swapped in a Currie hi-9 in the back with an ARB.
Did a stretch, rear 4 link, custom control arms, 36" IROK's, Champion beadlocks, Rockhard cage, and MaterCraft Baja RS seats. After breaking two sector shafts I also did a PSC steering box.



After all this I thought I was about done. Boy was I wrong.Went to watch the first TREC race and ended racing in it instead.



Last race of 09 I made the front axle kinda smile at ya.
So I saved my nickles and started building a front 609 axle.
Its got 2.5x16 King c/o's up front and 2x14" airs in the back(got 2.5x14 c/o's for the back to install still). PSC hydro assist, detriot locker, Currie 9" center section, f450 bj inner c's, Currie hi-9 third member, chevy outer knuckles, Mile Marker lock outs, and some Trail ready steel beadlocks. (broke an aluminum beadlock in one of the races).
Also hi lined the tube fenders up front.
I took abunch of pics at this stage, here is the album.

I got this stage done in April '11 the proceeded to race and break her almost every race.

The worst was this.


Did I mention that I was learning how to weld on the front axle build.

Had to tweak a few things but it seems to be holding together now.


Anyway, this my condensed build thread. Its still a work in progress. Belive it or not she has under 18k miles on her.

Bad A$$ machine man.

You did a great job on the mods.

As far as the welding it is easy to get a bad weld if there is no penetration of the base metal when you are welding and the weld just sticks to the top.

That is what happens to most people is they are concentrating on getting it to look smooth and forget about the penetration aspect.

Anyway good Job

Yet another badass IndyORV rig on here. Woot!

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

My welds don't look pretty by any means. I had a buddy come over and redo the upper control arm that seperated. I had good penatration at the control arm mount but not at the axle side of the bracket.

Funny I work in Brownsburg and i've never seen your jeep around. My buddy sent me a pic of it parked next to his rubi outside of the liquor store, that was spring or early summer.
We laughed cuz we tend to park next to other jeeps too, he said he came out and was ashamed to get into his. LOL

Sharp looking rig man. Hope to see it in person sometime.

I remember that. I saw his jeep and wanted to park next to it. Didn't really need anything for the liquor store just wanted to show off.

I keep breaking it racing then fixing it just in time for the next race. Haven't had much of a chance to drive it on the street.
