Project Procrastination, a TJuggy Build 42" pitbulls, stretched, on tons
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.
Custom belly up skid
RCI 15 Gallon Fuel cell with KORE ring
MORE front bumper to be straitened out and sold
Rear modified bumper from ebay that I bought a number of years ago
Currently the jeep has 35s for the street and 36s for the trail
Dana 30 front, Yukon Chromo shafts, Lockright, 4.88s
dana 44 rear, Alloy USA shafts, Detroit, 4.88s
4.5 RE springs
Clayton Long arm front
Custom rear Stretch in progress ~hopefully 5-7" with out a comp cut. (ballistic joints)
PSC steering box sitting on the garage floor
Future Plans (no particular order)...
40s or 42s
re do the cage
new front bumper
sink the fuel tank into the floor with a custom box overhead for protection
different suspension mounts
3 link front
Recent favorite trail photos. Harlan March 2009. I bought a House in late 2008 so my Jeep trips have been drastically reduced.

I haven't touched the jeep in two or three weeks. My new body mounts did come in this past week. I am planning on removing the 1" bodylift. It has been cold and I have been swamped with school work. After this semester I will have 2 400 level classes and one 500 level Engineering course for my Bachelors. My plan is to continue to get my MEng (masters of engineering) and possibly an MBA since UL has a joint program with the MEng/MBA.
ive been waiting to see this :)
Thanks, Maybe this weekend I will be able to do some more work. I figured it wasn't really build thread worthy since there are no one tons and 40s etc.
subscibed..cool thread,,hurry up and get to work already:thumbsup:
i would redo those welds if i was you
insert stuff here .... i think the welds look melted in good..when it gets some mud and dirt on it youll never see it from my house:thumbsup:..even tho i am a profesional welder fab machinist/laborer:rofl::teehee: get r done
Looks good. Looking forward to following this to the end.
I looked at the jeep again today.
Awesome, I'll be watching this like a hawk.
