So it's a bit of a story. I've loved off-roading since I could drive.
'89 Ramcharger that I loved but had no money or knowledge to make what I wanted.
'79 Scout II that I bought sight unseen and will forever be the biggest mistake of my life, save for one thing . . .
It led to my rare, 1971 Scout II (only about 2500 were made) that was mutated with a full roll cage, TBI, SOA, 35 BFG MTs. Beast.
I had to sell her.
Now we're on the island of Oahu and I decided to get a little island runner that will be perfect for the weekends of water on the seats and sand on the floor.
So on Tuesday I bought our Jeep for the next two years, which I call our island runner. A '91 YJ with the 4.0L and Auto tranny. Came with a 6" shackle kit and a slight tranny drop.
Here she is:
First things first, getting the new shocks on, as the front axle's were disconnected upon pickup.
This is what I started with:
After "dropping" the axle, I was able to get that bolt out and spin it around.
