Pictures of the tear took me around 7 hours to take everything off,and another 2 hours to remove engine,trany,transfer,axles and other odds and ends.this yj had the 2.5 motor ax-5 trans,Dana 35 rear 30 front.I sold most everything on craigslist and set that aside for my 4bt.

I don't have picture of my axles yet but,I've got Dana 44 front and rear out of a 88 waggy from ebay for 300.the rear has limited slip diff I'm going to be putting either 4.88 gears or 4.56.the front I'm thinking of a lunch box locker.I'm going to be springing over the axles myself.

CumminsYj88 05-30-2012 08:54 PM

Thanks man,I think I bit off more then I can chew,but its slowly coming together.and when its done my dream jeep will be complete! :)

deja vu. to my build. '88 white wrangler with the same "Hmm, this is becoming more involved than I really intended" feeling. But hopefully it will be really fun when done.

The time now is 02:54 PM.
