Project "Holly"

Well i got a 1994 YJ in march of last year, wheeled that, broke alot and it got alot bigger, about 8 inches with 33s. Well last week I picked up a 2000 TJ with 102k, 4.0. Thats the good, the bad is it has bent control arms, crushed fenders and bald tires. So im selling the YJ for 5500 and putting all that money into the TJ.

Future goals:
Rubicon Express 5.5 Long Arms
35x12.5x15 BFG KM2
15x8 Cragar Street Locks
Slip Yoke Eliminator
CV Shaft
Rubi Dana 44 Rear
High Pinion Dana 30
Go savvy
Poison Spyder Stinger, rockers, steering skid
Front Lunchbox Locker

The YJ:


The TJ:

hahah yeah, some lady had it before me and drove it into a ditch, then I guess drove it around for awhile after until her LCA completely broke and the shop she had it at quoted everything at 5000 so she sold it to me for 600.

It looks like it's in rough shape, but you can't go wrong for $600.

haha yeah 600 bucks, 2000 TJ, 102k, only problem is the front axle(which I have a HP30 from my yj) that will be going in and fenders, which I chopped

It came with full and half doors, hard and soft top which I could sell just that for so much more.

Some other stuff it came with was sub, amp, pioneer headunit and soundbar.

What a deal. A BB and 33s sounds legit.

Seems like it would be a lot easier to find a different HP that has the correct brackets.
