That is pretty righteous. Throw a Supra motor in there now. Or hell, an old rotary.

Looks cool. I think my YJ handles pretty well, considering what it is. Mines got nearly stock 235/75-15's. With it lowered and some meats I bet it really carves the corners! Awesome idea for a fun ride.

Thanks,

BTW I am working on a video of the car...
I don't know where you can get them. you might want to try the dealer. it's an overseas part.

Sorry if this revives a dead thread, but I had to say Thank you to this owner ...

I wanted to say I love this Jeep.
Yes, I know I'm new to the jeep community here, and I do like Jeeps of all kinds.

However I come from a musclecar background, being raised around GTO's and Hemi Chargers all my life. I love cars of all types, well except the over blinged Caprices I see online. But a favored passion of mine is liking vehicles that scream 'different'.

As different as my owning different cars thru my years from a 1970 Gto with 455, a 1980 Buick Turbo Regal, and a 1989 Plymouth minivan with a turbo 2.5 and a 5 speed. Got it from a friend but I was broke so I had to return it to him. That was gonna be my Srt4 Voyager.

Seeing your Jeep with the vette suspension was an eye opener, as it reminded me of a srt6 Wrangler photochopped and featured in a jeep magazine somewhere, and I never forgotten it.

Which brings me to my own ideas of getting myself a Wrangler, and either turbo'ing it or dropping a ford 302 into it with a stang suspension and wheels, exhaust and such, and make it a cruiser.

Thank you for showing me your Jeep, and showing me what can be done with patience, plenty of tools, and a high dose of caffeine straight into the brain.

I know a lot of people may give you flack for not having a rock crawler 4x4 that can crawl cliffs at 3 mph at almost 90* incline. But I Applaud you sir, bravo.

I was just wondering if you wanted to show how you removed the suspension, boxed the frame and other pics or tidbits, as I am going to get help with my Wrangler when I build it.

God Bless ya,
Kimonoskunk

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!
