Jeepin72's Build Thread

I bought the stock 2005 TJ Wrangler sport in 2007. It came with D30/D44, four wheel disk brakes, NSG370, I6, NP231, 3.73 gears, etc...



I should have started this thread a long time ago, but I didn't. Now I am going to play catch up.

In 2008 I did some light mods:

4.5 Rubicon Express Superflex Short Arm Kit
BFG 33's
Ramsey winch


To name a few...Here is how it looked.



Over the next two years I did a lot more...

Timken Bearings
OX Lockers
Motive 4.88 gears
15x8 steelies
Billstein Shocks
Clayton Triangulated Rear
Clayton Radius arm front
Clayton skid
Atlas II 4.3:1
1" Daystar Body Lift
35" MTR's
Garvin Industries Tire Carrier / Rear Bumper
OR Fab Cage
Rock Hard Cage Parts
CB
Xenon Flares
Banks Ram Air
Tom Woods Shafts
Spydertrax 1.25" spacers
JKS 1" mml
Currie AntiRock's front and rear

GenRight Gussets
Currie Steering
Spyntech Muffler
JKS MiniSkids on the D30 LCA Mounts
Rubicon Express 4.5" Coils
Rubicon Express Trackbar
Olympic Sliders
Poison Spyder Customs steering box skid
From here on out I will try to post on each project...

The Clayton skid is a monster. Earlier this year I found myself at about 13,000 feet on Wise Mountain with a problem. I turned and looked at my Jeep and noticed the bolts that secure the cross member to the frame on the passenger side had somehow backed themselves out and were gone. The skid and crossmember were hanging in space only mounted by the bolts on the driver side.

I had no idea when the came out on the climb. The bolts on the driver side did not fail. They kept the transmission and TC located well enough that I never even noticed the problem. The cross member did not bend or deform in any way.

Luckily, I keep a coffee can of bolts. Each time I take a bolt out for a project, similar bolts go into the can. I bolted the cross member back up and drove on without issue.

Good to see the progression. Glad you started a build thread. I'll probably be looking at your cross member when I build mine.

My Build!


Real Jeeps are built, not "bolt-on"!

Any time. If you still think an Atlas may be in your future I can give you tip pre fabrication. I have to cut mine and reinforce it at some point this winter to allow for easy access to the drain plug.
