The TJ has been stretched for about a year. It work wonderfully.
On 4/14/11 I picked up a set of Dana 60s. King Pin SnowFigher front from a 79 250. Rear is also out of a 79. Post 107 Starts the 60s build.
I am currently stretching the wheelbase of my TJ.
My TJ has progressed a lot over the years since I purchased it.
From Stock Daily Driver to modified daily driver to more modified daily driver to even more modified Trail Rig. I want to keep the jeep streetable, but have one that performs on the trail as well.
The day I bought it. Strait panels and no scratches.
4" Skyjacker and 33 Baja Claws
36s stock gears and axles
4.88s, Chromo front shafts, lockers
I have more older photos that I will post at a later date.
