My 93 2.5 low output build

So I got My 93 2.5 yj a couple month ago and want to try to start a build thread on it so here it goes!

Attachment 285767

When I first got my yj it came to me with a busted up 4 inch rc lift (Wich had broken springs in it) a 2 inch bl (that was missing a couple pucks) and lots of gay chrome (grill and tube bumper) the first thing I did when I got it home was take the top off and removed the chrome kill cover!

Next I took the rear chrome bumper and the little spare 31 off!

Attachment 285773

Next I took the unglued front bumper of in favor of a Tj stock bumper and painted the headlight bezels!

sorry the pics are out of order I am doing this on my phone

So when I bought it the po said it had 4.10 gear and what he thought was a lock right in the rear 35 scary I know. So I took the cover off to find I had 4.88 and a superior super 35 kit in the rear! I guess the po was wrong! Also when I got it it had a really nasty exhaust manifold leak (in fact it was missing to studs and it was cracked) So I fixed that and since the exhaust was banged to hell the held up with baling wire I decide it was time for a manifold back exhaust! I had a new high flow cat and a fm super 40 installed with all new 2.25 pipe (old exhaust was catless and a cheap turbo muffler dump and was all hanging by baling wire)

So then I paint the grill black I really like the look and also got some roll bar padding! I was really digging the new springs but with them be military wrapped and time I hit a bump or tried to flex the leaf would kit the frame......... So I have vacj5 make me some 5/8 boom shackles to fix that problem solved!

well with my new found flex I was rubbing pretty bad in the rear so guess what time for rear tj flares this made a huge difference in room and now more rubbing!

Your rig is looking really good. The TJ flares and MCE Flat Fenders give it a real clean look. Nice surprise on the Superior Super 35. Keep up the good work.
