Its already been rolled build a buggy

Well I guess it's time to start a build thread, I am building a Tj based buggy/truggy. A little background first it was a 98 Tj I rolled it at about 25-30 in November 2012, the insurance company paid me way more than I had into it and bought it back from them for 500 bucks. The damage from the roll was drivers door ruined, windshield, front axle bent. I bought another Tj dragged it up behind my parents and didn't do anything to it for a few years. Last year I started slowing down on work and decided to do something with it.

A member on here JasonM lives down the street from my parents and he is doing most of the welding/ fab work. The last year I have been accumulating parts and stripping everything now needed in a woods rig off. Here's what I have for parts right now

Hp 60 front
14 bolt rear
3 link front 4 link rear 106" wheelbase
Full hydro steering
Fox 16" travel air shocks on all four corners

I'm sticking with the 4.0 and ax-15 for now transfer case depends on how much money I have when we get done. As of this past weekend the jeep is at Jason's with no axles on Jack stands.

Well I changed some things on my build today, the 14 bolt is no longer going to be used. I picked up a eaton ho72 with 5.13s today and am gonna run that.

Sounds like you have a good game plan. I'll be watching.

Thanks It's a slow build and now when we're finally getting going I switched rearends but the eaton is a better axle and 5.13. Also I got more for my dana 35 then I paid for it so a win.

I got the eaton apart except the backing plate bolts are stuck. Heat and impact still won't budge them. I ordered a new diff cover for it so now I just need the disc brake bracket. I already have the rest of the stuff needed for the disc swap from the 14 bolt

Well I haven't updated this lately, I got the eaton stripped down and picked up a Detroit for it. I also got a set of revolution 5.13 gears for the 60. Finished cleaning up the jeep frame and found some Rot at all the control arm mounts. Jason made some reinforcement plates and we started laying out the links.
