Jeep Wrangler R/T

I'm new to the site, and I thought I would post what the Jeep looks like that I have in my garage.

It is a 97 Jeep Wrangler TJ that has been gutted of the 4wd and fitted with modified C4 Corvette suspension. It is about 600lbs lighter than a stock TJ, is about 6" lower and wider. It is sitting on 17" x 11" rear wheels with 275/40 17 Kumho Exsta XS tires and 17" x 9.5" fronts with 245/40 17" tires. It has a full 4" of bump travel with the QA-1 adjustable coil-overs and rides very well. The gas tank is 4 1/2" off the ground and has a reinforced skid plate for protection. Right now it is running a modified Jeep 2.5 liter engine and a custom 2wd 5 speed transmission. The stock transmission mount/skid pan was replaced with custom chassis X bracing that incorporates the new transmission mount as well as torsionally stiffens the chassis. I have taken it to the track and it does very well, and is a blast to drive.

Hope you enjoy it!

Im not a fan of lowered jeeps 99.999999% of the time, but as others have said, it actually has potential. You need an LS1 in there, and I bet it would be a blast to drive. I would think the 2.5 would be lacking in the power department though, unless you have regeared to something ridiculous. Nice work!
