I guess I did not need to point out the obvious. You started with a piece os **** and slowing working it into something I guess.
I do not follow that philosophy. I get a good starter project with no frame issues and build from there. Seems a waste to stick good on bad.
And for your childish name calling and what not, That does not affect me at all. Cause its stupid is as stupid does, and from what I see.............

I love it when people take time out of their lives to write negative comments on someone's build threads. If you don't follow that philosophy, why are you reading through his build and then taking the time to comment? Seems like a massive waste of time.

Rambo, the Jeep looks like it's coming along great. I guess I do not need to point out the obvious (But I will anyway, right??) Seems like you're learning a lot about your machine and I can relate to that philosophy. Keep up the good work and keep the photographs coming.

I just hate seeing kids blow huge amounts of funds on stuff when with a little time and research start with a better platform.
I do applaud his go at it attitude.
I could not Imagine what he could have done if he did not have to fix every single damn thing on it. He seems to have the technical experience to do great things Abet childish at times and Naive.
Its not like he got it for free or lives in a country that is not chock full of good starters.
My words are warning to other kids with limited resources that will one day read this, Start with a good foundation and you miles and dollars ahead. I will comment no more, Good luck with this and hell even houses on sand cost a lot now adays...

Well, Jeepsr4me, thank you for clarifying. Your other comments came off as really negative and really struck a chord with me.

It's just the flip side of the coin and that's great as well. For certain, one prescription does not necessarily fit everyone.

I think we can both applaud his go at it attitude!

It's not about the money or getting the best "platform" to start with for me. For me its the story behind it. I did rush in and buy a Jeep without doing my homework. Your right about that. But it was at a good price, I could do the work myself, and I needed a vehicle within 2 months to pull a trailer 1300 miles across the country and it fit the build. In Wisconsin if it's not rusted and rotted out you buy it.

My Jeep and I have been through a lot in our short year and a half. And I have lots of stories to tell. Which is mainly what I want out of it, a story to tell. The issues are now under control I think I have one of the best running 4.2s out there. Purrs like a kitten. And with the work I've done its got some power to boot. I know it's not ideal but it's a YJ that's how it's supposed to be.

I know how to fix almost anything on it due to where it's come from and what I've done, and where I want to go with it. I know how to build it right and strong and that's just what I plan to do. Little by little. Eventually the frame will go and the engine will blow, when those times come I can buy each and do what I need to do to get it done. This YJ's destiny shows it will be passed down through the generations and that's why I want the story behind it.

Call me crazy, dumb, or stupid whatever you want but that's how I see it. Your comment was out of line and unnecessary IMO. That's why I went off on you. You do know you don't mess with a man and his YJ don't you???

I enjoy working on my YJ the way I look at it . The more work I do the more I know and can help others not tear them down for seeing a Jeep on craigslist falling in love with it jumping on it and having to do a little unforeseen manual labor down the road. At the end of the day it's my Jeep and it's just fine with me. Sorry you don't see things my way

Digging the build thread! Heck I bought one with issues cause I wanted to learn how to weld and fix them. Of course I didn't want my son to go and blow the engine on the way home from buying it but stuff happens.... good luck bro and enjoy the trips and memories.

Took a BIG step in the right direction today. Got my 9" third member all set up. Has a Yukon Pro Nodular case and pinion support. Daytona pinion bearings. Yukon 35 spline full spool. Superior ring and pinion. (Although they were actually factory second Yukon ring and pinion gears) That pissed me off a little. I say factory seconds because the ring gear appeared to have been dropped on the ground or banged on something sharp. I ordered them direct from Superior. Which disappointed me a little.

Anyways here are the pics. It's a thing of beauty.





Heres my pattern. It was tricky to set up because the pinion has one or two tight teeth. Which was also a bit of a let down. But this is the best pattern we could have hoped for considering. Its actually not too bad. Backlash was between .008" and .012".

Drive

Wait until I get done with this next round. Cleaning the entire underbody and coating it. Putting a for 9" in the rear and a HP D44 up front all new internals. Waggy Springs for a stretch. Tank mod. 35" meats. Electric fan. New body lift. Drive shafts. SYE. Home brew flat belly skid. All the good stuff.

I'm going broke. But loving every second of it!
