They still are. After some diligent searching I found these almost new swampers. Never been driven on the road (until I got them). Only ever used on a mud racing truck. And saved a bundle too.

Took the swampers out for some wheeling fun this afternoon. Really dug good!

Installed my Iron Rock Offroad Axle truss and a new tailpipe. Very nice quality on this truss. It was intended for installation on an XJ D35. Only required minor modification to fit the YJ D35. Needed to make cutouts to clear the inner leafspring bolts and the breather tube. Brake lines are now fastened to the truss.

Thanks Jon, Yeah I like to go off roading but I don't wail on my rig so I'm hopeful these upgrades will make this D35 last too. Besides this I also installed hardened (4.88) gears and Chromo axles. I bought the truss directly from Iron Rock off road. If you Google it it will come up. Forget the exact price but it was just a little over 100 buck! Most other ones I found were in the 200-300. Not much to choose from for the unappreciated D35 either!

Jeep's looking good. Most people dont like snow wheeling. It can be a lot of fun.

Just wondering why you are building a anti-wrap bar? You shouldn't really need one with a spring under set up. Are your springs really soft?

My YJ has 4" lift springs SUA. I BEAT THE HELL out of my rig offroad and I never have axle wrap or hop.

Thanks for the compliment!
I do see some pretty harsh twist on my springs while climbing stuff. Don't know if the springs are soft but I have swampers that bite hard, a locker that keeps both tires pushing, 4.88's that lets the power through. Just a little insurance to keep the Drive shaft safe.
